A classic night out begins online

The website’s main purpose is to sell tickets. We created the design and interactive elements based on research, aiming to create maximum conversion. For online ticket sales, we linked to specific ticketing software. After going live, we started AB testing to further optimize conversion.

Stories as a content strategy

The unique building (opened in 1888) houses many interesting stories. But there are also stories behind the musicians, the audience and the staff. We share these stories on the "discover" section of the website. Articles, podcasts and videos increase the connection to the brand. With this content strategy, we firmly establish the brand and generate traffic through social media, newsletters and search engines.

When we were translating the new corporate identity to the website, we chose to design it 'mobile first.' Because most visitors book tickets from their smartphones.

Concert choice guide

When you're new somewhere, it's nice to have someone show you the way. With “find my concert”, users can easily discover their taste in classical music. Do you like baroque? Or do you prefer modern? Based on your choices, three concerts are proposed. This music guide is a highly interactive educational tool that manages to hold the interest of a young target audience. The “find my concert” option is one of the most converting routes to selling a concert ticket.

A smart paywall

To entice users, Preludium offers three articles for free. Once the reader gets to the fourth article, they can only view the top of the page, and a banner lists the benefits of a subscription. Because of the site’s logic, this paywall is not easily bypassed.
