Billboard is reporting about companies like Side Door, Looped, and StageIt trying to build online streaming business. Live event platform Side Door announced the launch of its ticketed private, streaming events with tickets ranging from $5-$35. Looped started as a virtual meet-and-greet platform between artists and fans until Wednesday when the platform enabled those same artists to invite their super fans to ticketed livestreaming shows. Tickets typically range from $5-$30. Online venue StageIt has been in the business of monetizing livestreams since 2011 with 450 shows per month. Now they're doing anywhere between 30-40 shows per day (900-1,200 shows per month), with tickets averaging $10 each, offering fans the option to donate more.
