Eventsburgh New Phase: Online Event Promotion Marketplace

As we announced back in February, we have been working to transform into an online event promotion marketplace where event advertisers can post their events and get social media savvy users to promote their events (event promoters).

Up till this point, we have been giving out gift cards for the top promoters but now we will implement an incentive system with the infamous “Cost Per Click” (CPC) model. Here is how it works.

1)      An event advertiser creates an event post and specify how much CPC he/she is willing to pay (minimum default value is $0.05)

2)      An event promoter grabs the unique short url associated with the event post and distributes it

3)      When someone clicks on the distributed link, the event promoter earns 50% of the CPC amount specified by the event advertiser

Short URL link

We will be implementing the new system in the next few days so the site will be out of service during this period. Please also be aware the new changes will eliminate all the social networking functions (forums, private messaging, uploading pictures on profile etc) as we mentioned in the February post.

We would like to thank you for your patience during our transition phase.  If you have any concerns or questions regarding these changes please do not hesitate to contact us., a division of Eventsburgh LLC, Launched is a new division of Eventsburgh LLC.  It was founded because the owners of Eventsburgh LLC recognizes that there’s a demand for a service that helps organizers, venues and show producers provide ticket deals to potential guests in Pittsburgh.  In essence, the site will help them sell tickets by making available attractive ticket deals.

Nate Martin City Director Philadelphia

Please tell us a little bit about you.

I grew up in Indiana and ended up in Philadelphia to attend grad school.  Since then I have fallen in love with Philadelphia and desire to continue to help Philadelphia to continue to become a greater and more loving city.  My path to Philadelphia was because of Mission Year which I heard about through serving in Indiana as a college student at Purdue University.  After serving in the Lafayette, Indiana area for a few years my wife and I decided to sell our cars and move our lives to Atlanta in order to spend a year serving with Mission Year and learning about the joys and struggles you find in a city.  After Mission Year I attended Eastern University to earn an MBA in Urban Economic Development to help me to better serve others.  Now as a city director I am able to help others to learn and love the city.  I am also a part of a youth mentoring and youth flag football league called Timoteo located in West Kensington.

How / why did your organization start? (Background, History)

Our organization began in 1996 in Philadelphia and Oakland through a partnership with EAPE.  Mission Year began in order to offer opportunities for young adults to serve in marginalized communities and to learn from and serve the communities they live and volunteer in.  Through this year of volunteering and learning Mission Year hopes that people will better understand and live out the scripture of loving God and loving God’s people.  There is also a timeline on the website

What is your organization’s objective? (What does it do?)

Mission Year is a year long urban ministry program focused on Christian service and discipleship. We take teams of people, place them in an area of need, and help them to serve people and create community. We are committed to the command of Jesus to “love God and love people,” by placing the needs of our neighbors first and developing committed disciples of Christ with a heart for the poor

How long has the organization been around?

We are entering our 20th year as a organization

Eventsburgh is becoming a marketplace for event promotion

A little over a year ago, started as a place for event organizers and event promoters to gather and socialize. Our initial aim was to help local non-profit organizations to spread the word about their upcoming events. It turned out organizations other than non-profit were also interested in using our site and soon we expanded into other cities.

Through out this period, we added features and gathered feedback on how they were utilized and came to realize that there wasn’t really a need for yet another social community. Therefore, we started to look for a new business model and now we are getting close to reveal what we have been working on. It is not ready yet, but we are getting close.

The new system will convert Eventsburgh into a marketplace for event promotion. The main function will focus solely on promoting events and spreading the word about upcoming events.

Because of this new system, many of the existing communication tools that allow users to communicate and make friends will disappear as many of our users find the social community components of the site confusing and not very useful.

If you have any questions concerning this change please feel free to contact us.

We appreciate your patience in this transition phase and look forward to more feedback on the features and services we provide.
