Stop copy and pasting email addresses

On a limited budget of €25,000, the first UPRISE Festival was an intimate affair. Paul and his team began to reach out to people. How did he get in touch with everybody?

“I believe in connecting with people on a personal level. The worst that can happen is getting a no. So I told my whole team to reach out personally. They brought in sponsors, spoke to great companies, sold tickets, invited students, communicated with the media – the whole works.”

With so many newly-made contacts, the need for an effective way to manage their contacts began to surface. When the team should have updating thousands of people on the festival’s progress, they spent whole afternoons copying and pasting details of contacts to cumbersome spreadsheets.

Welcome Mila.

Using her automated assistance, Paul and his team could focus on the festival itself.

“With UPRISE just on our doorstep, our workload increased but the pressure stayed level. Using Mila, we could easily reach out to our 6,500+ network to bring the festival to everybody’s attention. And with these reminders, we persuaded many people to buy their last-minute ticket or partner up with us. Result? Over 4,000 visitors attended our first festival!”
