For someone who is an absolute newbie to the ticket reselling game, this very short e-book/also in print does provide some good advice in the form of tips and tricks to follow to avoid major pitfalls and stumbling blocks to learning the business. However, it falls short on more than a few levels, several of which I will list below.
(1) The author promotes eBay as the #1 online market for ticket reselling, and yet fails to explain precisely why eBay is tops. Granted, Ebay reaches a lot of prospective ticket buyers and is probably one of the best places to sell high dollar tickets immediately after the initial ticket sales have ended. Where is the data, though, to back up the author's claim about eBay? Indeed, little actual data supports most of the shared tips and tricks in the book.
(2) The book needs some yearly updating. In fact, there is no mention of what appears to be the emerging #1 ticket resale market: Ticketmaster's nearly year-old resale option that allows buyers of tickets to many events (shown as TM+ events) to immediately list their tickets for whatever price they choose to sell them at. Ticketmaster provides a really easy resale scheme that favors sellers over buyers, in that there are zero fees to sell your tickets on Ticketmaster, but which makes the buyers feel 100% safe in their purchases.
(3) The author places a strong emphasis on doing research--something of value to pass along to prospective industry newcomers. Aside from the act of putting together a spreadsheet for tracking cost/sales and suggesting that the reader become familiar with several industry websites, the author doesn't do much more to help the reader figure out what his/her research plan should be. More detail is also needed in the section of the book where the author discusses the need for tracking ticket sales to help the newbie's research. For example, the author suggests getting the sales records for tickets to past events from eBay and via other web sites, but doesn't tell the reader how to do this. These gaps in helpful "how to's" are a major flaw in the book.
Overall, the book was well worth the cost I paid for it and is something that I would recommend for others--but only after sharing the cautionary information I have written above. I am thankful to author for sharing what he did share in his book in spite of the book's shortcomings.
