Sureshot Success Story

Vistage Uses Multiple Channels to Reach the World's Busiest Executives

Reaching Modern Business Leaders is no easy task

Vistage, the world's largest coaching organization for business executives, hosts over 12,000 meetings each year for its 23,000+ members. Their impressive client roster features high-profile executives from every industry; however, these busy leaders are some of the most difficult people to reach.

The Challenge of Increasing Executive Engagement

Ensuring members stay informed about upcoming events is critical to Vistage's mission, since event attendance directly impacts their success. The company used a combination of voice reminders and emails for event communications, but the engagement levels and results were underwhelming.

Cross-Channel Boosts Vistage Member Engagement More Than 5X
