Former Homeless Man Builds Event Ticketing Platform for Small Venues and Independent Artists
RockNTix Ignites a 'NO FEE' Ticketing Revolution and Competes with the Big Players
After a short time experiencing homelessness, Mo Abersheid was able to get himself back on his feet when he started to work at a small event venue in Los Angeles. As a lover of live music, he wanted nothing more than to enjoy it himself. Unfortunately, even with a job, Mo found that he and many of his friends were unable to afford the ticket service fees charged by the ticketing platforms used by LA's many live show venues in addition to the ticket itself.
"Everyone who wants to should be able to experience the magic of live music, so I thought that creating a ticketing platform would help bridge that gap of pricing. I asked the small venue I was working for if they would try out a no fee online event ticketing platform I planned to launch - they said yes - so that's exactly what I did," Mo added. "I had an opportunity to build a business and my employer could potentially be my first client."
Mo developed the software specs and hired coders to code RockNTix, a platform where the venue or independent artist sells tickets directly without the service fees to help them more easily connect with their fans. A few months after it launched, COVID-19 hit, which meant no more live shows and no tickets to sell through his platform. The bump in the road only inspired Mo to adapt to the new times and embrace the digital world entirely.
"Necessity is the mother of invention," said Mo. "Since people were no longer able to go to the venues to see live shows, I decided to bring live shows to the people, and launched a new live streaming service called RockNTV where artists could perform online and upload their videos and music and earn an income, and people could watch safely from their homes."
Mo didn't stop there, he has now branched out into the Metaverse, where independent artists can now be seen by an even broader audience as the Metaverse grows.
Mo is changing the industry by giving artists and venues new ways to get in front of fans and a foothold in the Metaverse by allowing fans to experience live performances like never before.
"Not only are people able to continue seeing live performances, artists are able to perform, and venues are still able to sell tickets and thrive," Mo continued. "And now that we've introduced the Metaverse into RockNTV recently, people with new technology like the Oculus can really feel like they're at their favorite venue with their friends."
"But, how does RockNTix make money? Through ads. Companies like Meta and YouTube earn billions annually through ad revenue, and we expect RockNTix to follow suit as our user base grows," Mo added.
As a tech startup, RockNTix is currently seeking funding to begin a major marketing campaign to get the word out about RockNTix. "RockNTix will change the ticketing industry forever and become a global force by democratizing the way fans see their favorite bands," Mo added.
