• Missouri Enterprise - Harold Zinn, Chief Operating Officer

    For over 3 years, we have partnered with Thumbs Up, their associates understand that the most important aspect of their job is to get our 7 Area Business Managers in front of C-level executives.

    While our sales cycle tends to be rather long, we can point to several significant projects that we have done as a result of appointments set by Thumbs Up representatives.

  • Brown Smith Wallace - Cory Metz, Business Development

    “Brown Smith Wallace engaged Thumbs Up Marketing to conduct a B2B lead generation campaign targeting business owners and c-level executives in our chosen markets. Thumbs Up exceeded our expectations in identifying the decision makers, promoting our unique value proposition as a professional services firm, and ultimately scheduling appointments for our associates. After following up on the qualified leads generated by Thumbs Up Marketing, our conversion ratios and close percentage ultimately resulted in an outstanding ROI. We would strongly recommend Thumbs Up to any organization that understands the value of having a trusted vendor who can plan and execute a tailored campaign.”

  • Columbus Museum of Art - Lauren Emond, Member Relations Manager

    “Thumbs Up has served as a terrific extension of our own membership marketing team. When you hire a company to speak for you, it’s easy to worry about whether or not the employees really get your organization, artistically and programmatically. We are confident that Thumbs Up understands our programs as well as our staff does, which is exactly what we want – for them to be considered staff to the constituents they call. Their personalized approach and constant attention to detail helped us to rapidly re-engage lapsed members in a very cost-effective manner.”

  • Pittsburgh Public Theater - Lou Castelli, Director of External Affairs

    “Thumbs Up Marketing represents us passionately and professionally. They proactively provide ideas and forward thinking strategies that assist us in achieving our revenue goals. As an example, Thumbs Up recommended conducting a benchmarking test utilizing a cultivation call to our Single Ticket Buyers prior to the subscription call, and results proved successful.”

  • Eugene Symphony - Julia Frantz, Donor Relations Manager

    “In our 2nd season with Thumbs Up Marketing, we have seen numerous improvements in our call programs. The telefunders are comfortable with and adept at engaging prospects and donors, and their approach has helped us increase average gift, conversion and gifts via credit card. Thanks to the great work of our Thumbs Up team, the number of donors to the telefunding campaign and the number of new Eugene Symphony donors has dramatically increased each year. If challenges arise, their client services staff mobilizes quickly and addresses concerns. Our Thumbs Up team plays a crucial role in meeting and exceeding our annual fund goals. Thanks for all the great work you are doing!”

    “Thank you for all you did to make the Campaign such a wonderful success.  Still collecting pledge payments.  I have not done an analysis, of the project you worked on, but I do know all the major gifts have, or are, coming in on schedule.  I imagine the Thumbs Up project response is somewhere between 85% and 90%.”

  • St. Anthony’s - Michael Foley, Development Officer

    We have been using Thumbs Up Marketing for our Past Patient Campaign. Our primary goal was to conduct new donor acquisition for a variety of areas within the hospital. The results have been just what we hoped for. The Thumbs Up team gave us solid projections for both contact and conversion rates. We were able to use the results reports and segmented data they provide to refine the process over time, increasing our results with each campaign.

  • Missouri Botanical Garden - Andrea Nickrent, Membership Manager

    “Thumbs Up Marketing has been great to work with during the calling portion of our capital campaign. Calling our donors was not a decision that we took lightly. The training Thumbs Up provides their callers is impeccable. The callers are attentive and gracious to our donors. They absorbed the extensive information we provided with ease and made a true effort to understand our brand and our goals. In addition, the reporting by Thumbs Up staff is always timely and accurate. We would gladly work with them again.”
