NAMPRadio Episode 5: Why Stand In Line When You Can Get Online: Online Ticketing Systems
In this episode, the panelists Ron Evans, Matt Campbell, and Maris Smith talk with Justin Karr about online ticketing successes and headaches, online service fees, panel experiences on ticketing platforms, and details about Fractured Atlas' ATHENA opensource ticketing project.
- Matt recommends: A book -- “The Paradox of Choice” by Barry Schwartz -- we tend to think that choice is a good thing, but there comes a point where too much choice is paralyzing, and the book offers thoughts on human behavior and how to avoid the paradox.
- Ron recommends: The podsafe music network -- great site full of songwriters who have submitted their music to be used for free in your podcast or other not-charging work. We find all of our musical artists here. Send them some love!
- Justin recommends: The iPhone app “Ratio” -- a sort of cookbook app that allows you to put in how much you have of one ingridient, and will calculate how much you need of other ingridients. Although cooking isn't arts marketing, Justin loves the way the app works as an example of a really good iphone app, as well as an example of out-of-the-box thinking.
- Maris recommends: evernote.com -- Online site to save your ideas, things you see, and things you like. Then find them all on any computer or device you use.
