How does a person become a ticket broker?

You have to decide what your ultimate goal is. You can buy

tickets from Ticketmaster, LiveNation, and from the various sports

teams, with the hopes that you can resell them for more money. You

can sell the tickets on StubHub, eBay, Craigslist, or through a

ticket broker network (Event Inventory, TicketNetwork, etc). In

that case, you just need some money, a good sense of what will be a

good seller, and some luck.

Another option is to create a ticketing website, where you can

list other ticket brokers' inventory, and make a percentage off of

each ticket sold through your website. You can join an affiliate

program, or setup your site using a plug-in provided by a ticket

broker network. Both have their pros and cons, so it's up to you to

do your due diligence.

Of course, check your state's reselling laws to make sure that

you're compliant. Many states require that you are licensed and/or

bonded, and fines are STIFF.
