And I distribute free tickets to hundreds who have joined my private e-mailing list on the principal that I will only mail them “the absolute best deals that are too good to be true.” These are free movie tickets, free theatre tickets and opportunities for being cast on network TV shows without giving up a cut when I get them from casting directors.
The purpose of this article is to examine the pricing strategy of FREE or FREEMIUM that is being used by Boston arts organizations and musicians around the world.
Plato said “Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”
The same thing can be true about the FREEMIUM business model. Without listeners (soul), performing artists have no life (wings) in their chosen genre. But when listeners who first experience the work for free become engaged with your craft they’ll pay money for the chance to own the experience (music and performance). This is about knowing what your audience wants and giving them exactly what they want.
Boston artists want to provide what you want. Free tickets are a part of that strategy. Free tickets also provide upsell and cross-sell opportunities. And free tickets leverage audience expansion and the funding apparatus in a positive way.
If free tickets were not a cost efficient customer acquisition and conversion path, you would not have as many free ticket offers to choose from as you have today.

Brownpaper Tickets was the first effective grass roots business model for an online ticket reseller capable of providing authentic event tickets we’ve come to know.
