Over 60% of members receiving “PYC Signal Flags” by email are opening them (nationally, only 1 in 5 e-newsletters are opened by recipient). “Anything above (20%) is amazing,” said one marketing pro.
PYC’s Facebook page contains numerous postings about things happening at Club so far this year. Even someone who doesn’t have a personal Facebook account can still view our page by logging onto Website at https://www.pentwateryachtclub.com , scrolling down homepage to circled “f” Facebook logo, and clicking on it. Great way for prospective member to see what goes on.
Special thanks to … Sean Coughlin for his self-initiated, volunteer project. While Club’s collection of burgees from other yacht clubs (now numbering 208) was removed during dining room repainting, Sean washed/dried/photographed/researched each, and then mounted his documented photos in binder, which you’ll find on glass cabinet to left of stage. Check it out!
