Breaking into New Markets with Moonlight Cultural Foundation
With a new set of shows for their 2018 season, Moonlight Cultural Foundation needed a fresh strategy to break into unexplored markets. Located in North County San Diego, Moonlight Cultural Foundation faced the challenge of being hidden from most of the surrounding San Diego community. With the support of Community Boost, Moonlight Cultural Foundation was able to execute on a digital strategy that helped them gain much needed exposure and drive multiple sold out shows.
Google Ad Grant Approval
The Google Ad Grant is a digital marketing grant provided by Google that gives nonprofit organizations $10,000 per month to advertise on behalf of their mission. With this new advertising tool under their belt, Moonlight Cultural Foundation was able to target theatre lovers around San Diego that hadn’t heard about their 2018 season. After creating a best in class Google Ads campaign to target these people, Moonlight Cultural Foundation was soon sending upwards of 5,000 interested ticket buyers to their site monthly.
