donations & more
We've had an exciting start to 2012 - not least because we welcomed our one
millionth customer last week - but also because we've had some great new
developments go live. We thought we'd let you know about those, as well as a
couple of other things you might be interested in...
*Facebook ticket shop*
We're really pleased to be able to unveil our new Facebook ticket shop -
allowing anyone with a Facebook Page to sell tickets directly from there. It
can be configured to list all of your events, all of your events at a specific
venue, or if you're running a venue Page it can list everything we have on
sale there (even if it's not your show).
We think it'll be a great addition to any Facebook Page, encouraging your fans
to become ticket buying customers and allowing your Page to become an even
more important part of your online presence.
Installation is really straightforward - simply click Facebook Ticket Shop in
the left hand menu of your client admin area and it'll guide you through the
quick and easy procedure. If you'd like to see how that looks on a Page, have
a little click here:
the 'Buy Tickets Now' tab.
Early in January we launched WeGotFestivals - a new sister site of ours that
lists all the festivals we have on sale. We'll be picking out a handful to
advertise to our customers from there, also including an updates section where
we can announce line-up additions or tickets going on sale.
Combined with the existing comedy site WeGotComedy:
we hope the new festivals site
will help show our customers the great range of events we have on sale while
engaging them further and encouraging them to browse the site and find that
little gem of a festival they might not know existed!

adding their 2012 festival for sale who hasn't already done so should contact
*Charity campaigns - Oxjam and ActionAid*
As you'll know, we're always keen to support charities and each year run at
least two major charity campaigns - one during October when we work as the
official ticketing partner for Oxfam's Oxjam Music Festival, and another
during December for a charity close to our hearts.
In our fifth year of drumming up funds for Oxfam we raised £6722.87. As well
as including our highest ever set of customer donations and our own booking
fee donations for all Oxjam tickets sold, it also included around £1000 of
donations from our clients - so thank you for your generosity! Both ourselves
and Oxfam are extremely grateful to those of you that supported the event by
donating your ticket revenue.
We're also delighted to have raised £3473.37 for ActionAid's Kenyan radio
project Muziq Speak in a 2011 Christmas appeal through a mixture of customer
donations and WeGotTickets booking fee donations.
*Music Week Awards*
This year's Music Week Awards is now taking nominations, and while we couldn't
possibly choose which of you deserves the recognition more we thought you
might be interested in nominating friends and associates - or yourselves!
There are loads of categories, but perhaps the most relevant to a lot of you
will be the Live Music Venue awards. A full list of categories and further
information is available here:
Nominations can be emailed to mwawards_at_intentmedia_dot_co_dot_uk and should include:
the category, who you are nominating and why. You don't need to write an essay
or provide a case study, simply scribble down a couple of paragraphs
explaining why you think your nominee deserves an award.
