Spa sales soar thanks to social media tools
Since the creation of Scarborough Spa’s Facebook and Twitter
accounts last year, online ticket sales have more than doubled.
Scarborough’s Spa Complex joined social media sites, Facebook
and Twitter a year ago which has seen a huge 240% increase in
online ticket sales. In comparison, between 5 July 2009 and 5 July
2010 1,623 transactions took place whereas between 5 July 2010 and
5 July 2011 a whopping 3,913 transactions have taken place.
Jo Ager, Scarborough Borough Council’s Spa Sales Development
“We’re delighted to have seen such an uptake of ticket sales
over the last year and can attribute some of the Spa’s success to
the joining of these social media sites.
“Facebook and Twitter are the biggest communicative tools right
now which provide instant messaging and real time information to
users; they have been a tremendous boost in letting people know
what events are on at the venue.
“This year has also been exciting as our year long refurbishment
has been completed and the venue is back and more popular than ever
with a heavy schedule of great events lined up for the rest of the
year including comedy, ballet and drama as well as the annual Jazz
Festival and much more.”
