COLUMBUS, OH – May 25, 2022
For Immediate Release
HomeTown Ticketing, Inc. is proud to announce a new partnership with Gipper Media, Inc. (Gipper) to streamline social media posting and provide schools with resources to better communicate event information to their fans. Like HomeTown, Gipper is a leader in the K–12 industry, simplifying the way schools highlight student athlete achievement, communicate with stakeholders, foster community and drive new channels of revenue. Along with K–12 schools, Gipper and HomeTown also support initiatives at higher education institutions and a variety of additional areas.
With access to a wide range of ready-made templates and seamless social media sharing, schools can create and share more content than ever to promote their events. As part of the partnership, Gipper will create promotional graphics designed to integrate with HomeTown’s services, enabling customers to drive ticket sales directly through social media. Gipper is also excited to offer discounts for clients of HomeTown Ticketing who sign up with Gipper in the coming months. Discounts will be based on the level of plan selected and the individual needs of the school.
“If you are not currently promoting ticketed events on social media, you are leaving literal dollars on the table. However, it’s a big challenge to create social media content to promote events when you have limited time and resources. That’s why we’re excited to partner with HomeTown Ticketing to bring Gipper to more of their partner schools. Using Gipper, athletic departments can now easily leverage social media to help improve fan engagement, increase ticket sales, and raise awareness for their hard-working student-athletes and programs. This is a huge win for athletic departments nationwide!”
– Matthew Glick, CEO and Founder | Gipper
“HomeTown is looking forward to our new partnership with Gipper as we work together to advance our mutual goals of creating easy-to-use solutions for schools. Through social media, schools are better able to share upcoming events and encourage support for student athletes, performers, and all those who showcase their skills at their school events. We are excited for the new opportunities this relationship will bring to all of those who use the HomeTown platform for their events!”
– Ryan Hart, Chairman & CEO | HomeTown Ticketing, Inc.
