      Thanks for the comment, Norman. There are so many opportunities to make money online now that I’m surprised more people do not take advantage of it. I believe over time that more people will be working for themselves than in a traditional 9 to 5 job. If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks

    This is interesting. I’ve been using WordPress for sometime now, but wasn’t aware about such feature until I read your article. In blogging, there’s really no need to use this plugin, or is there?

    I like to come up with tools to help businesses grow and I am just wondering what type of event would benefit from this. I am sure they aren’t just limited to concert tickets, right?

    • Tony says:

      Hi Cathy, thank you for the comment. You could certainly incorporate this plugin into your blog if you had a blog specific to promoting events that you create yourself. An example would be if you were creating an event for a food and wine tasting. You could write a blog about your event and have the plugin right on your site for customers to purchase tickets. It’s not just specific to concert tickets, you can sell tickets for any event you create. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. thanks!
