What's the best way to handle "latency" in event applications such as Eventbrite?

What's the best way to keep users engaged between events to mitigate latency on event management software?

@ Michael - :) that gave me a good laugh. In event applications such as Eventbrite or, say Brown Paper Tickets, which allow users to create events online, distribute them and sell tickets, there is an inherent problem of "event latency" which, after the event, most people will forget about your service until some other event is brought to them either via social media, event invitation through said software, or via email or all three. What I am exploring is how to keep users engaged during these periods in between events. I know of some possible solutions, some of which have been used by said companies in the past through the use of photos, follow-ups & suggested connections based on people who share the same interests, but I'm wondering if there's more than just that.

Dominic,

I am working on a product that lets you push text to customers and allows them to buy. It would be a good fit to present people with offers for tickets in areas they say that are interested in.

Best,

I'd definitely adjust your multiplex demodulator to confirm to idiomatic UDP substrate reference platforms.

Seriously, can you ask the question another way? Not sure what you mean by latency here.

@Rob, what I lack in utility I more than make up in snark.

@Dominic... rather than us fumbling around with random ideas you've already thought of, can you describe the basic platform and differentiation? Why did you wake up one day and decide to do this?
