Thank you to all who voted in the Seattle Weekly “Best of Seattle” reader’s poll. Brown Paper Tickets has been awarded top honors in the category of Best Website Graphics. According to Seattle Weekly, “Fair-trade ticketing company Brown Paper Tickets not only connects you with the hottest events in town at fair ticket prices, their website looks really cool, too.”
How nice of you to notice! We changed our website graphics to take on the look and feel that makes setting up an event easy, and ticket-buying a pleasure. Along with the new website graphics, anyone who produces an event now has free integration with MailChimp, a free, powerful email marketing campaign manager. They can also start ticket sales from their own website, and get 2.5% of the ticketing fee sent back to them if they are using their own credit card processor instead of the Brown Paper Tickets credit card processor. In addition to these great features, ticket buyers can also purchase tickets, tell Brown Paper Tickets which charity to donate a portion of their ticket purchase to, and tell their friends which shows they are going to through social media with less clicks.
Since 1986, The Seattle Weekly has been keeping tabs on the best the Emerald City has to offer, and this not the first time that Brown Paper Tickets has made one of its “best of” lists. Just last year, in June of 2011, Brown Paper Tickets won the “Best Mobile App” award in the Seattle Weekly Web Awards, saying “Turn your iPhone into a scanner to check in and out of events – cool app for event producers!”
Speaking of mobile apps, the Seattle Weekly has created a mobile app that allows readers to carry the list of their best-loved treats, temptations, people and businesses. Get the “Best of Seattle” app here.
Thanks for the love, Brown Paper Tickets fans! Share the love and spread the word with your friends and neighbors who are producing events!
