Broadwaybox.com drives ticket sales via mobile promotions

Broadwaybox.com is not the only ticketing Web site tapping into mobile consumers.
Most recently, StubHub rolled out a Windows Phone app and also has apps iPhone and Android apps.
Additionally, the online ticket exchange Web site TicketNetwork launched a mobile-optimized site earlier this year.
Mobile ticketing is quickly becoming a go-to for on-the-go consumers. More customers are buying via mobile.
