Tips for representatives
1. Use your network
There are likely people in your network of friends and acquaintances who are interested in culture and what we do here at the Göteborg Opera.
Besides talking with your family and friends, you can also talk with neighbours, colleagues, fellow members of sports clubs or other organisations, people you meet at educational courses and your local congregation.
Talking face to face is of course the most pleasant, but it’s not always possible of course. Besides phoning to chat or sending email, you can also use channels like:
Information sheets/newsletters in your local clubs and societies
Close-circuit TV or intranets at your place of work
Your local organisation’s website
Writing about and linking to all of our upcoming performances on websites and intranets are a great way of communicating what we have going on.
But you can also make specific emails for certain customers, where you select a performance which you think will suit them specifically – if you know them well enough to do so.
We can help select our most accessible productions for the first-timers in your network.
When you get responses from people in your network, it is great if you are able to assist them with things like:
help to make single bookings to the production they are interested in
help them to find a good place to sit in the auditorium
inform them about ticket exchange and cancellation
inform them about different seat price categories, and help them to choose what will suit them best
4. Information about what’s on
Here are some tips for how you can learn more information about current and upcoming productions, which can help when you’re informing your network about what they can see.
