OvationTix users are equipped with several tools to help them increase fundraising revenue. One of these is the ability to ask ticket buyers to add a donation to their cart during the checkout process. This helps increase donations and gives fundraising leaders a targeted list of folks to contact for their annual appeals.

OvationTix also has donor profiles which help your team identify key fundraising opportunities. You can apply tags to likely donors and segment by these tags when creating lists for new fundraising campaigns.

Additionally, the CRM functionality in OvationTix allows you to assign tasks in batches to groups of patrons. For instance, you may want to pull a report of $5,000 level donors and assign tasks for your prospect manager to make personal calls to each of these donors. In OvationTix, you can do just that.

See how the Carpenter Performing Arts Center grew online donations total over 6x with OvationTix.

3. Average annual lift in online order totals of 9.7%

More and more of your customers prefer to buy tickets online. In fact, OvationTix clients now see over half of their ticket sales coming from online channels and online order totals have increased by 9.7% on average between 2014 and 2017, or 32% over the entire period.

There are several reasons why this has occurred. First, this is a general industry trend. As evidence of this, according to Capacity Interactive's Performing Arts Ticket Buyer Media Usage Study, 95% of performing arts patrons purchased tickets online in the past 12 months.

OvationTix has also empowered its clients by making it easier for their customers to purchase tickets online. The OvationTix product team has done a lot of hard work on new features such as the mobile-responsive consumer interface and enhanced master calendar views which help support this.

To increase your online ticket sales, it's also important to ensure that you are creating an optimal event discovery and purchase experience on your website. Check out this on-demand webinar, where we show you how to do that and more.
