We want to let you all know about a new partnership we just entered into with a company called TiqIQ. Please take a few minutes to read about what we’re up to and how it will benefit our community.
Who they are:
TiqIQ aggregates event tickets from leading ticket sellers across the Web including primary market sellers like Ticketmaster, Front Gate, and Ticketfly and secondary ticket sellers (scalper sites) like eBay, Razorgator, and TicketsNow. TiqIQ compiles all tickets available and makes the process of finding tickets at the lowest prices easier. Think of them as Expedia.com for event tickets. Their other partners include companies such as The Washington Post, Voice Media Group, and some of the best sports and music blogs out there.
Why we are partnering with TiqIQ:
We were approached about the partnership idea by TiqIQ a couple of weeks ago and we felt this was a great way to generate revenue that will in turn allow us to run more contests with awesome prizes without having to pay out of our own pockets.
During the Funhouse era, we wrote for Examiner.com as the national P!nk Examiner. This was how we paid for contest prizes and shipping costs without dipping into our personal piggy banks. We want to continue putting together contests with great prizes but it gets expensive. Since The Truth About Love Tour is pretty much sold out, realistically the money we make through TiqIQ will come from scalped tickets. We’re looking at this as an opportunity to bring some of that money back into our community and to have some fun with it.
About our partnership:
We are partnering with TiqIQ by sharing ticket links and info directly to fans through our website and on social media sites. If you decide to purchase tickets, we ask that you use links from our sites because that’s how we get paid. Our partnership is entirely under our own terms. We control all posts to our sites and the partnership will last as long as we want it to. While we obviously want to make some money, our focus will always be to support P!nk and keep the community strong. If this partnership doesn’t work out, we walk away. Plain and simple.
Thanks for taking the time to read this. We want to keep our communications with you all open and honest and we hope you support the partnership and what we want to do with it. Feel free to let us know your thoughts via Twitter (@Pinkfans_) or by email ([email protected]).
