Hello, this is a phone tree calling ...
Many of you know that we place personal phone calls prior to an event to encourage registrations. As you can guess, this is very time consuming and a bit exhausting, although sometimes we do receive some encouraging feedback, which makes it a bit easier.
So, the other night Kim and I set out to make some phone calls ahead of our Valentine's Day events. The problem is, we have 7 events in 4 cities and thousands of phone numbers to call! There just isn't enough time in the day to reach them all. We even hired a part time assistant to help with this, but it's just not enough. So Kim, being the "think tank" of Cache' Connections, set out to research other options. Thus, our new strategy of a phone tree was born!
We realize this is less personal, but it is to the singles' benefit, as we can reach many more people to populate the events for you. So don't be surprised if you get a call from 309-550-5580 about an upcoming event. We've heard that some churches are doing this too to announce the Sunday sermon topic. Another wave of the future that we are riding ~~
