Web Landing Pages

» Membership Acquisition Campaign

How do you turn prospective customers into satisfied customers? Today, it often means facilitating their online experience with your product or service.

Landing pages have become a key ingredient in winning a prospect’s interest. Effectively conceptualized landing pages pique a prospect’s curiosity and provide a way to quickly learn more. The organization, meanwhile, can gain a conversion through that important call-to-action.

As a copywriter for mdg, I was responsible for developing pieces aimed at membership acquisition and retention for one key client, the National Association of Secondary School Principals and their renowned student programs, including the National Honor Society. This page was one in a series of A/B test pieces developed to inspire schools not yet affiliated with the National Honor Society to join and get up to three free months of free membership.

Video Scriptwriting

National Honor Society promotional video

» Promotional Video

Who doesn’t love a story? Storytelling has become an especially powerful means for organizations to connect with target audiences. Personal stories also help create emotional bonds.

I scripted this video based on the personal experiences of members of the National Honor Society. NHS is the largest, best known, and most respected student recognition program in the nation. Affiliated chapters use this video for promotional purposes to share an overview of the organization and its powerful impact in helping shape the lives of some of our nation’s highest achieving students.

Social Media

Chorus-YouTube2

» Choral Program Online Community

What do you get when you combine a school choral program, its students, parents, relatives, music lovers, and anyone who searches the web for music? Thousands of hits!

When a high school choral program launched its first website, I initiated social media platforms as companions to the site. A YouTube channel would be the perfect way to connect the performers with fans – parents, relatives, and friends. And the whole world could also get to sample some of these wannabees of #TheVoice.

The channel became a valuable marketing tool for the director, who could share the site with prospective students who were considering joining the program. I also started a Twitter feed and began to administer a Facebook page dedicated to the group. The channel also became a fundraising vehicle. Prospective supporters could be directed to the channel to see and hear firsthand the star power in the group.

A success? Indeed, the subscriber base and hits on the channel continue a steady rise. In fact, to promote solos following the group’s annual cabaret night, I tweeted to some of the celebrity artists whose songs were represented by the student performers. In three cases, the artists – Kristin Chenoweth, Journey, and Elizaveta – retweeted my message to their followers, leading to hundreds of additional hits on the channel.
