CEC Startup of the Week: FanFueled

What does FanFueled do?

FanFueled is a game-based marketing and social ticketing platform that incentivizes, tracks, and rewards word-of-mouth marketing and fan engagement. Through its patented Share-Track-Reward software, FanFueled incentivizes fans to spread the word of the events they’re attending by rewarding them with cash and once in a lifetime experiences (like meeting your favorite artist).

FanFueled produces the highest percentage of sharing in the live event industry, with over 30% of its transactions resulting in a shared purchase. Through this patented tracking software, FanFueled measures a fan’s influence across multiple degrees of separation, precisely tracking word-of-mouth influence and generating unprecedented analytics. Outside of ticketing, FanFueled builds revolutionary social gaming platform for festivals, artists, and venues, ushering gamification into the live event industry. Check out an example of their Engage Platform here.

Why do you care?

The live event industry has traditionally treated fan passion as something to be exploited. FanFueled treats fan passion as a valuable resource that can be harnessed not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it’s good business. FanFueled allows artists, event organizers, and venues to market more effectively and efficiently to their fans by precisely identifying influencers. Rather than waste resources on traditional promotional costs, FanFueled enables these groups to get significantly better results from their marketing spend by turning fans into promoters and targeting fans that ignite word-of-mouth marketing.
