Theater and Philharmonic Apps Can Revive the Art of Acting

As our main entertainment sources became digital, theaters and philharmonics worldwide have started to lose ground. By now, watching Netflix or listening to Spotify has vastly outranked their classic ancestors.

So much so, that people believe the theater and philharmonic are things of the past.

We firmly disagree with those people, because at Eventya, we believe in the magic of performing arts.

Thus, we’ve decided to empower them with the same disruptive technology that set them back: custom mobile apps.

Custom mobile apps are affordable, accessible, and proven to increase brand awareness.

Don’t believe us? Stick with us, and you’ll find out all about how we revive the magic of performing arts with custom mobile apps.

How Can Custom Apps Benefit Your Theater or Philharmonic?

The truth is that mobile apps are versatile tools that can be leveraged to achieve numerous goals. For one, your communication will be instant and have a reach that you’ve never imagined before. Second, you’ll have a cutting-edge, interactive platform that gives users a reason to keep coming back and engage.

As the most renowned theaters and philharmonics have started recognizing these benefits, arts & entertainment apps came into existence. The Los Angeles Philharmonic’s LA Phil is among the most prominent examples. Read on, and find out how the Los Angeles Philharmonic and other acclaimed organizations are benefiting from custom mobile apps.

How to Capture a Wider Audience With a Custom Mobile App?

As the previous sections illustrate, arts & entertainment apps bring a host of high-end features and benefits to their users.

Hence, no wonder that the world’s leading theaters and philharmonics are resorting to them to grow and engage their audience. The UK Philarmonia already joined the trend in 2012 with their custom app.

The Berliner Philarmoniker’s Digital Concert Hall is also proof of concept. It demonstrates the efficacy of custom mobile apps in gaining a larger following and improving engagement rates.

You might be wondering how you can use our arts & entertainment apps to increase your own following.

Well, it’s easier than you’d think.

Here are 3 of our favorite methods for capturing a wider audience with custom mobile apps:

Run Special Offers for Your App Users

Offering special promotions to your app users achieves 2 significant outcomes: creates a sense of exclusivity & increases your mobile app downloads.

Your app users are most likely your most dedicated followers. Consider rewarding them for it. Besides special promotions, you can offer exclusive merchandise or content as well. This will quickly increase your number of app users as soon as the word gets out.

Bonus tip: Consider a limited time offer, with a short window of 24 hours to 1 week. This will inspire urgency and increase your offer’s conversion rate.

Increase Future Event Participation

Participation at your shows isn’t just important for your revenue, but the mindset of your performers as well.

Our custom apps are equipped with tools to help increase future show attendance. You can start by live streaming your shows and gaining a large digital following. People who enjoyed your live stream will purchase a ticket for your next live performance.

The event calendar and instant notifications can also generate an interest in your performances. Just make sure to keep your calendar updated, and share the right amount of notifications for each show.

Increase Brand Recognition

What better way to capture a wider audience than increasing your brand recognition? After all, positive branding is what keeps your theater guests coming back.

Offering a creative digital experience within your custom mobile app can greatly contribute to your brand image. Moreover, it’s a great way to generate those all-important referrals.

All you need to do is update your content to your app, where your audience can interact with it. In turn, your custom app will gain popularity and boost your brand recognition.
