  1. Free Ticket Classifieds Says:

    Great list you put together. I do have a suggestion for your list, Free Ticket Classifieds. The site is new but is generatiing a lot of traffic – great to promote your event! Sorry for the shameless self promotion.

  2. Dustin Nielson Says:

    If your looking for an inexpensive way to promote or sell tickets online you should checkout the Facebook application Viral Events. http://www.viralevents.net. Viral Events does NOT charge a per ticket transaction fee for selling tickets like most companies and offers some nice tools for promoting your event from within Facebook

  3. Jenn Says:

    There is a cost but they are willing to work within your advertising budget.
