Kitchener, Canada, March 23, 2017 --(PR.com
, a free event discovery service that will help people find sports, arts and entertainment events across the USA and Canada and that will reward them when they buy tickets, was launched today by LoyaltyMatch Inc., a leading loyalty and engagement-computing company.
RewardingYourself is free to join. Members earn points when they join, when they buy tickets when logged in, when they refer a friend and when they are social on Facebook and Twitter. Those points can then be used to score more tickets, food, beverage, merchandise and premium digital music streaming services rewards Ticket buyers are not the only ones to reap rewards. Attracting more fans through the RewardingYourself events search discovery tool sells tickets. More tickets sold means artists, venues and ticket companies will also benefit from the design, data collection and “learning” built into the program.
"The fans who buy the tickets and are rewarded through our program are the obvious winners because everyone loves free stuff, but RewardingYourself will be a win-win for everyone," said Brad Ball, LoyaltyMatch Inc., President and CEO. “Studies show that as much as 40-50% of tickets go unsold, mainly because of a lack of awareness and only 34% are sold in advance. RewardingYourself can increase that awareness, which is good news for everyone involved when selling tickets online,” he added.
Once registered, members can login and search for events and buy tickets. New members receive 50 points on joining, then are awarded 1 point for every $1 USD spent. A catalogue of rewards available is also on the site.
Venues will not only have more people at shows, but reports have shown that two-thirds of people who attend a show or event spend an average of $55 in addition to the ticket cost. RewardingYourself will also raise event awareness and attendance because members are awarded points for their social media activity.
