Facebook Lets Event Organisers Sell Tickets Directly from Its Site and Apps
Facebook is a great tool for event marketers. The largest social network with an every growing user base and a range of functionality for event promotion it is no wonder that event organisers love Facebook. Event organisers currently use the Buy Tickets button on Facebook Events and the call to action button on Facebook Pages to bring audiences directly to their ticket purchase web page but soon you will also be able to sell event tickets directly on Facebook thanks to the recent Eventbrite and Ticketmaster integration.
Facebook has partnered with Eventbrite and Ticketmaster to let people buy tickets to events from its site and app. This integration is currently being tested on Facebook’s desktop site, and iOS and Android apps. Though the pilot program is currently only available to those in the U.S., it is likely that it will be rolled out to other countries soon.
