"What would we do without Highrise?" asks Tracy S Schmidt in this tweet. Schmidt is Lead Trainer at 435 Digital, a consulting firm that helps businesses with SEO, social media, web design & training seminars. She teaches classes for both public & private organizations and uses Highrise to keep track of class registrations.
We followed up via email to find out more about she uses Highrise. Here's what she wrote:
I run a new training program at Tribune focused on social media and SEO. Our attendees are readers of the paper, where we advertise our classes mainly, and Tribune advertising clients.
I need to keep track of the emails I get from all over, with questions about dates and prices and the like. We use clunky Outlook and it's hard to keep track of who asked for what. Plus I want to know who should get emails about particular upcoming classes.
So I've been using Highrise since the training program launched, which was March 1. We are now rolling it out nationally and partnering with a local university. What's more, a lot of attendees have the potential to become clients or subscribers to different Tribune brands.
Highrise has been great for helping me stay organized and now, as we grow our staff, my colleagues as well.
Here are some screenshots from Schmidt's Highrise account that show how she keeps track of communication with students:
