Fans sign into mobd through a ticketer’s website, send event invitations to friends, carry on discussions and then each pay for their own tickets. mobd benefits both ticketers and fans: Ticketers increase their reach, sell earlier and sell more tickets by facilitating communication to groups. For fans, mobd cuts the chatter, simplifying the decision-making and payment process end-to-end all in one place.
Ninety per cent of purchasers on ticket websites, such as Eventbrite and Ticketmaster, don’t complete the sale because they leave the site to gather friends to attend the event. This is both inconvenient for purchasers and results in a loss in revenue for ticketers. mobd solves this problem by simplifying group purchases directly from the ticketer’s website while increasing the site’s reach.
