Drive Website Traffic Using the Google Ad Grant and
Utilize Facebook Ads to Generate Ticket Sales
Driving Website Traffic
We used the Google Ad Grant to drive more traffic to the A.D. Players website. We were able to increase organization awareness through ad groups and campaigns created, as well as through specific ad groups highlighting their show calendar. These efforts drew more users to the website where they would have the option to make a ticket purchase.
Utilizing Facebook Ads
We used a strategy of targeting new users in the Houston area with similar interests to the show that was running for the organization. This targeting method helped bring a new audience to A.D. Players, and we also ran ads to previous ticket buyers. Additionally, we retargeted all of these users based on key site pages they had visited to give a captive audience multiple chances to purchase tickets.
A Tremendous Lift in Ticket Sales
Through this strategy, A.D. Players has seen an increase in ticket sales for all shows across the board. Through Facebook alone from May through October 2019, we have generated:
- 2,934 website ticket purchases
- At an average ad spend of $2.40 per ticket
- Resulting in $146,700 in revenue
