Future Now: Using Data to Create Repeat Customers and Draw Back Lapsed Customers

While growing and finding new audiences is at the forefront for arts marketers, so too is keeping the audiences you have. Loyal customers account for only 20% of total customers, but are drivers for 80% of revenue - and customer retention is certainly less expensive than bringing on new customers. With that in mind, we are going to look at how Ticketsolve can help you identify lapsed customers and welcome them back.

As we’ve been exploring the AMA’s theme of Future Now this week, we’ve been looking a lot at practical applications, conversions, case studies and getting to grips with data driven thinking. But we’ve skipped a big part of the future picture . . .who are our next customers and what are they like?

Yesterday we looked at some practical steps you can take to help boost your online conversions through your data (if you are a Ticketsolve customer we have some great integrations to help you). And while data is of course critical, the foundations of great conversions is a great customer journey - and ultimately - a show page that converts the “intent to buy” into a “buy”. Today we are going to take a look at a great example of a forward thinking online show page.

As part of our sponsorship of AMA Digital Marketing conference next week, we will be sharing some digital and data driven tips, tricks and thoughts over the coming week. If some of these sound familiar don’t be too surprised: we are data mad over here, so we have been talking data for a long time now!

How to Establish Box Office Best Practices that Drive Revenue & Increase Customer Loyalty

A great show doesn’t materialise out of thin air. As anyone in the industry knows, each move is calculated well in advance.
