SAN DIEGO, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesis Digital, creators of the premier Live Event authoring platform, WebinarJam, donated their Mass Market Webinar service this week to The Rising Tide Society in conjunction with Pencils for Promise to raise much needed funds for schools in developing countries.
What is The Rising Tide Society?
The Rising Tide Society (RTS) began when a group of small business owners realized that creative entrepreneurship can bring loneliness, along with a desire to thrive alongside other small business owners in the spirit of community over competition.
With 12 cities across the nation, RTS officially launched its first meetup in May 2015 and has expanded to over 400 chapters and counting. What began as a dream turned into a grassroots movement of business owners who believe there is a better way to do business - of creatives with a passion for making an impact on their communities, clients, and the world.
Working with WebinarJam, they created The RISE Summit, a free one-day online educational event put on by RTS + HoneyBook with the intent that all proceeds from the event be donated directly to build a school through Pencils of Promise.
What are Mass Market Webinars?
Big webinars, the kind with more than 5,000 attendees, can be a lot to manage. Genesis Digital offers a competitively priced, customer-centric package for this purpose that includes:
- A personal concierge to help prepare for the event and ensure live support during the broadcast
- A personal, dedicated live-ops engineer to ensure server stability
- Chat service for large groups (with automatic shutoff after reaching a cap to ensure readability)
The WebinarJam Concierge team monitors several Mass Market webinars every month, to both international and US based customers.
Ring the School Bell!
Featuring nine speakers with over eight hours of educational content, the final result was a spectacularly successful event.
From Jessica Chang, event coordinator from RTS: "We are so thrilled that we were able to fundraise over $62,000 through 7,000 registrants...We are so humbled, and proud that we are building a school. We are still polling the public to determine where the school will be, either Ghana, Guatemala, or Laos."
"When Jessica came to us, she said she'd be delighted if they made their advanced goal of $50,000. They blasted through that roof thanks to their excellent content, worthy cause, and a little credit goes to the platform itself," Genesis Digital COO Gideon Marcus said. "There's so much you can do with WebinarJam, whether you're a little business or a big fundraising organization. It's all about being able to deliver your message effectively. That's what we're all about, and we are honored to have been able to partner with RTS in their endeavor."
