We also identified opportunities to make ticket buying easier for patrons in the digital space.
What We Did
Created a new design experience that combines sophistication with accessibility through the use of imagery, font, and iconography to convey the performances in a clear and creative way.
Streamlined the donation process making it easier for patrons to see the benefits of membership at various levels and making it easier to contribute to the opera.
Deployed iMedia’s plug and play, Performing Arts Framework into Tessitura to easily allow HGO to sell tickets, subscriptions, memberships, gift certificates and to accept donations.
Content Marketing Strategy
Re-organized the website’s content in a way that provided the most value to users, linking relevant content together, and structuring it in a way that gave patrons the information they most needed in the least clicks.
Installed iMedia’s Select Your Own Seat technology which lets patrons choose their individual seats and provides tools to filter based price, view the stage from their potential seat, and learn if a potential seat has restricted views, or legroom.
Social Media Strategy
Customized & deployed iMedia’s Social Wall which allowed the Opera to promote the brand and curate social content via hashtag campaigns. This allows HGO to showcase the fact that their audience is young, vibrant, multi-cultural and fully engaged.
“We needed a completely new website built from scratch, and we had complete confidence that iMedia would guide the strategy, design, and cutting-edge technology that would showcase Houston Grand Opera’s brand in the best light possible. They truly listened to our needs and provided solutions that exceeded our expectations.”
