As part of my duties at Withfriends, I did lead generation, wrote copy, and managed drip campaigns for locally targeted leads. Here’s an example of a sequence of emails for a campaign targeted at leads based in Baltimore, Maryland, my hometown. As a result of this campaign, several high profile accounts onboarded to the platform, our firsts in the region, including Current Space and Red Emma’s, and the campaign had a overall open rate of 46%.
Subject: Boost your organization’s income with memberships.
Copy: Withfriends runs memberships for event organizers. Even if you already run a membership program or accept donations, you can grow your organization’s income by 20% - 300% per year by selling tickets or collecting RSVPs on Withfriends. Isn’t that incredible!
As an artist and organizer myself, I’m bringing my years of experience towards making Withfriends the best tool for building a strong membership program. From a large-scale cultural center like Pioneer Works, to a small neighborhood art gallery like Paradice Palase, we’re already supporting 200 event organizers. I want you to be one of them!
