How to Get More Customers at your Comedy Club

I was recently over at the Connected Comedy Blog reading their post on ‘Why Creating An Experience if More Valuable Than Creating Content’
It got me thinking about how important it is for places that host comedy shows to pay special attention to the experience they are providing to each customer.
Nurturing Customers’ Experience Before They Buy
Customers make a judgment about their potential experience before they purchase a ticket - whether it’s by calling, looking at your website, or Facebook Page. Make it as easy as possible for people to find answers to their questions.
|The worst thing you can do is to drive customers away by frustrating their attempts to find out more information!|
You want your comedy club to appear as open, welcoming, and accessible as possible because this sets an example for their experience at your club.
You’re Selling More Than Just Tickets
When people buy a ticket to your comedy show, what are they really purchasing? Customers are buying the experience of being at your club.
Why is Having a Valuable Experience Important?
- Makes the customer feel good and satisfied with their purchase.
- Shrinks the perceived price of a ticket.
- Customers won’t hesitate to return again.
- Customers will pass on positive referrals to their family and friends with confidence.
Compare these polar opposites:
|Good Experience||Poor Experience|
|1.) “That was well-worth the ticket price.”||1.) “That was too expensive. There’s no way I’m paying that much again.”|
|2.) “I will definitely be back here next week.”||2.) “I’m not coming back.”|
|3.) “My friends have got hear about this club.”||3.) “If my friends ask, I’ll let them know what a lousy time I had tonight.”|
