We’re getting better at this! Latest membership mailing

By Diana Ross | Posted in Membership, WBJC News | No Comments

Each mailing we send, we get a little better at this! Last major mailing we sent out, we inadvertently chose “person record” rather than “account record” and sent two mailings to many two-member households. This time around, we made sure we didn’t do that again… but didn’t realize that this time the query had only […]

Duplicate mailings

By Diana Ross | Posted in Membership, WBJC News | No Comments

It’s come to our attention that we made an error when we sent out the recent pre-drive mailing to our members. We inadvertently used our list of individual members rather than collective households, which resulted in many people getting multiple mailings. Here at WBJC we pride ourselves on being frugal with your donations. This mistake was […]

It feels like the start of things, getting back to school or getting […]

By Diana Ross | Posted in Membership, Staff Blogs, WBJC News | 1 Comment

Yvonne and I went to an industry conference this year for Public Radio Membership staff and we were feeling very much like fish out of water. Everything was geared towards the NPR station, or mixed format, and the few times classical radio stations got a nod, it was about the loyalty of its members. Yvonne […]
