Howdy! I volunteer for the Niles Canyon Railway. We run holiday trains from Thanksgiving to New Years to raise funds for our operations. About 15,000 tickets are sold. After what seemed like years, I convinced the leadership that investing in Constant Contact would be a good idea. After all, we'd only need to sell a dozen more tickets to pay for it. They relented and begrudgingly said OK. (Man, was I proved right!) Thanks to CC, we sold out in weeks, then days, and now in HOURS. This note came today from our volunteer who reports on the online sales: "For the third year in a row, sales have been faster than the previous years. (Prior to 2008, our best years for selling out the trains was 11 days, and 9.5 days). This was prior to Eventbrite. Then we had the downturn of the economy, which slowed our sales more. The uptick 3 years ago coincides with getting our Constant Contact service up and running, and sending out the reminder emails. For the 2017 reminder, we had 13,000 people on the reminder list." I thought you might like to know how your service has created a success story for a nonprofit that makes a lot of people happy, as it preserves railroading history. BTW, if you want tickets, they're almost all gone - they went on sale today at 10am. (It's 12:40 now. Wow.) Thank you! Laura Bajuk
