Fandago’s Ticket Sales Are Up 57% For 2012
Owned by NBCUniversal, Fandango has set a new record for ticket sales and traffic in 2012. Fandango reported that ticket sales have grown 57% compared to 2011. The company’s monthly visitors are up 34% year-over-year. Fandango’s mobile ticket sales increased 171% year-over-year, which is 30% of their overall sales total. Around 31 million people downloaded Fandango’s mobile app in 2012. Fandango has partnerships with Yahoo! Movies, AOL Moviefone, and MSN Movies.
