Over 2000 people voted for them, and they are SO grateful of each and every single vote-  Vibe Tickets mission is to #OutTheTout and they know so many of their followers, and people worldwide have been affected by this and so they are campaigning for CHANGE!


HOWEVER, it isn’t over yet! The public vote may be done, but there are still more rounds we have to get through before they can Pitch To Rich! The Pitchathon starts next week- This will be a 29-hour, live-streamed attempt at a Guinness World Record! The 40 entrepreneurs with the most impressive pitches will be taken through to the next round… They are working hard on there pitch at Vibe Tickets HQ so they can get closer to pitching to Rich, and explaining to  him why so many of their fans need their help! Vibe Tickets are really passionate about helping as many fans as possible and beating ticket touts so that the secondary market is changed for the better. Every day we see stories in the media of tickets being sold for thousands of pounds, or fans being ripped off after being sold fake tickets….this isn’t how the industry should work and they are here to disrupt and change this.

They really hope you keep supporting them throughout the rest of the #VOOM Pitch To Rich competition and that your support will help to see them through RIGHT till the end!! We’ll keep you informed…but in the meantime keep spreading the #GoodVibes of Vibe Tickets!!

Why not try Foursquare for your Business

By Comments Off on Why not try Foursquare for your Business


When we think of social media and business, the first few things to come to mind are Facebook and Twitter. Yet, there is one mobile app that tends to get overlooked by businesses: Foursquare. True, it doesn’t have the same numbers that the likes of Facebook and Twitter can boast, but what it does have is a dedicated audience which has made over three billion check-ins.

Regardless of whether you’re a retailer or not, any business can use Foursquare and getting yourself set up is easy. The only thing it needs is you to get involved.

Why Foursquare?

While it has a web presence, Foursquare has been growing quite steadily over the last few years, and offers some unique opportunities for businesses and brands. With over 25 million users globally and 31% of mobile users active on social networks using Foursquare, it has an engaged community and a passionate user base.

Foursquare’s main strength comes from its users, the power of personal recommendation and sharing on different social media sites. By seeing where their friends are going and the places they regularly frequent, they would be more likely to visit if the recommendation is positive. Foursquare doesn’t get the same attention as Facebook or Twitter, but this presents you with a better opportunity to develop customer loyalty through deals. While Facebook has released its new ‘nearby’ function for its app, Foursquare is still the king of check-in and location.

Why not the next time your at Cotton Court Business Centre check in on Foursquare. We are running a series of special promotions for first time visitors and check in’s through to mayorship.

Above you’ll find our offer for Permanent Desk Space for a limited time of £25 per week. For more information please visit Cotton Court Business Centre.
