Webinar promo email

Email sent to members of an online community introducing them to a paid product. Challenge - communities thrive on voluntary contributions; members don't want things being sold to them.

Had drafted this email for one my clients. The email was sent to members of <community1> - an online community for professionals in the niche domain of Data Science and Product Management. The challenge was to craft a communication without losing the essence of a close-knit community, and yet introduce a paid product of <the acquiring co.> which acquired <community1>.

This is a rather long-form email; setting up the right tone and context was important. All the emails were sent in pure text format to avoid any spam attribution and keep it simple. The email resulted in quite a good amount of registrations for the webinar. -Shantanu.

Hi Richa,

If you have only 1 minute to spare 😀 then quickly scroll down to the bottom and register for a webinar that we are facilitating. It is a detailed discussion on establishing yourself as a Product Manager very effectively by going through a structured program. Webinar will be delivered by an internationally known, executive-training expert.


If you have 5 more minutes to spare 😀 then read on:

Establishing yourself in the Product Management discipline is not easy. Given its applicability in the new age technology businesses – be it startups, mid-size or large enterprises – more and more employers want to hire Product Managers who have acquired an in-depth experience and well refined frameworks to solve immediate problems at hand. On top of it, Product Management truly is a multi-disciplinary function interacting not just with with the engineering, but also with sales, marketing, and all other functions within a business. This calls upon a broad range of skills, experiences, frameworks which a professional must apply in unorganised and fast-paced business environments. Now learning this discipline purely basis one’s own experience, if not impossible, is definitely time consuming and filled with trials and errors.

That’s where a formal training program in Product Management at a global level comes into picture. Those of you, who are aware about our recent joining with <the acquiring company>, would know that <community1> will not just continue to remain a super-active community for Product Management professionals, but will also continue to engage you all at a much deeper level – by being a true partner in your careers of tomorrow.

In relation to this, <the acquiring co.> will be airing a webinar with an internationally known executive-training expert, best-selling business book author and a business executive Ms. Peggy Oslon, who is the Managing Director for Great University in the USA.
