Entertaining in the days of Covid-19
Working with Debbie Travis, Carrousel Studio created the Virtual Happiness Retreat. The idea is to bring the retreats home for an immersive Livestream experience. With Covid-19 restricting travel to Tuscany for the usual in-person gathering, we were tasked with creating a website that could sell tickets, create accounts and give access to a two-day Livestream event accessible from within their website.
Combining technologies such as the WooCommerce and The Events Calendar, we built a custom Livestream experience capable of selling tickets, creating accounts, and giving access to purchased videos. With other solutions such as Vimeo Enterprise being very expensive and taking a cut of all sales, we built a solution that ensured sure every ticket price went straight into their account without any service changes.
The website has been featured on The Marilyn Denis Show , along with many other publications. Within the first 48 hours, the sales showed great success.
Live streaming seems to be the future. Contact us if you are interested in how this technology works.
