Ticket Broker  Money And Outlook

Insider Info

dotBarry Lefkowitz is the executive director of the East Coast Ticket Brokers Association. He says average ticket brokers gross $1 million to $3 million a year. However, that's not all profit. Self-employed brokers must pay expenses and staff before they can draw a salary. Entry-level brokers working for a company may earn a base salary and commission.

"Generally, entry-level brokers starting with little or no experience start with a flat base salary of $22,000 to $25,000 a year. Experienced brokers can net a final yearly income in the $50,000 to $65,000 range," explains ticket broker Karl Roes.

dotAs long as there are concerts, sports events and plays, there will be ticket brokers. Folks will always need last-minute tickets.

"Employment trends are stable," says Lefkowitz. "If anything, I've gotten a large amount of calls within the last six months from people wanting to start their own business."
