Virtual Webinar presented by One Nine Design

Virtual Webinar presented by One Nine Design

Stand out among the inboxes!

Email is still one of the most effective marketing tools for many businesses and nonprofits, but are you using your email platform to its fullest potential? In this webinar, Andrea Shirey will break down the critical features you should be using in any platform and show you how to create email campaigns that compel people to open them up and then take action.

 

Andrea will also cover:

  • Types of subject lines and preview text that get the best open rates
  • How to write a great call-to-action and use it effectively
  • How to segment and personalize emails for better results
  • How to measure if your emails are working (and adjust, if not)
  • What you can still do, even if you don't have an email platform set up

Just sending emails to your people is no longer enough. This webinar will help you make your emails more effective and finally stand out among the inboxes.

 

Open to all MOV Chamber Members.

Please register if you are planning on attending. You will be sent the link information to attend the meeting via email once you register.

You also have the option to submit questions prior to the meeting. Those can be sent to info@movchamber.org

Luck of the Draw - Reverse Drawing

Luck of the Draw - Reverse Drawing

Here’s your chance to support the MOV Chamber AND be in the running to win $1000!

It’s the Luck of the Draw reverse drawing!

 

The work of the Chamber continues to ramp up, but several of our events, like the Women in Leadership Conference, have had to be postponed until next year. We are not ones to hang up our fiddles! We need your help to raise needed funds for your two favorite buckaroos to continue our mission through the end of the year. 

 

Ok, cowpokes, gather ‘round. Here’s the scoop on the Luck of the Draw reverse drawing!

 

How’s this work?

From sun up on July 1 to sun down on July 31, we will be selling 100 Tickets for $100 each at the Chamber Saloon (otherwise known as in this email or over the phone.)

 

Have a lucky number? 

Select that number on the order form OR just as the name implies, randomly pick one of the ticket numbers for your Luck of the Draw entry. Click REGISTER to confirm your number and the next step is to pay by credit card on-line. Prefer to use the Pony Express (regular mail)? That works too – just make sure we receive it before close of business on July 30 to reserve that number. 

Don’t go dodging the law - numbers that have been reserved but not paid for by July 30 will be released for final last-minute sales on Friday, July 31.

 

I have 2 lucky numbers!

Guess what, prospector? You can purchase more than one ticket with all those gold coins and the paper money you’ve saved up. Or maybe you purchase one, your spouse purchases another, and so on… Please know the money is going to a great cause – YOUR Chamber of Commerce – so your generosity is greatly appreciated! To put it in cowpoke’s terms, you’ll be saving our bacon! And by getting more than one ticket, you’ve increased your chances of winning. (The only requirement is you must be over 21 to participate.)

 

When will you draw the tickets?

On Friday, August 7 at 7pm in the evening, we invite you to join us on-line via Zoom and Facebook Live as we draw ticket numbers. Your goal is to be the last ticket drawn and that ticket holder wins $1000. No bamboozling!

The week of August 3 we will bring you a fun Goody Bag with some notions (theme-related activities and munchies) so that you can play along from home, watching and waiting for your ticket to be drawn. There might be some specially marked items in the goody bags that will award other prizes, so best to keep it sealed up until 7pm on August 7 or the Chamber Sheriff might come round you up!   

 

What about the rest of the tickets? 

In this situation being the first ticket drawn is not where you want to be, so we will award the first ticket with their $100 investment back. 

Tickets 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 each receive $125. 

Tickets 60, 70, 80 and 90 each receive $150.

Ticket 91, 92, 93, 94 and 95 each receive $175.

Ticket 96 receives $200.

Ticket 97 receives $250.

Ticket 98 receives $300.

And Ticket 99 receives $500.

All non-winning tickets will be put into second chance drawings for cool door prizes and certificates donated by area businesses.

So, make hay while the sun shines and get yer’ ticket today! 

 

Purchase your tickets here!

 

When:
Friday, August 07, 2020 6:00 PM
Where:
MOV Chamber Office
Drawing will be held via Facebook Live and Zoom
