How UpLaunch Saved Quinn Patrick 30 Hours a Week

The owner of CrossFit Smithfield was frustrated with MailChimp and needed another way to grow his business.

About CrossFit Smithfield

Quinn Patrick opened CrossFit Smithfield in Smithfield, North Carolina in 2017.

For two years, Quinn focused all his energy on excellent coaching. After about two years of running his gym he realized simply being a great coach wasn't enough. If he truly wanted to grow his business, he needed to do more.

To grow his gym he and bring in members he needed to focus on marketing.

Time-consuming Marketing

Once he analyzed how he was spending his time, Quinn realized he wasted much of his day struggling with his marketing software.

"We needed to learn more about business," Quinn said.

"It was a real pain dealing with Mailchimp and I was about to pull my hair out," he said.

Quinn was tired of spending hours on email marketing with little result. He opened his gym because he loves coaching, not writing and sending emails.

Saving Hours Every Day

After that first phone call, Quinn knew UpLaunch was for him.

"We ditched Mailchimp and signed up with UpLaunch, and you could just see the stress fall off my face," Quinn said.

"It's saved me so much time and effort."

Quinn loved how he didn't have to sit down and write hundreds of emails himself.

“It was already filled out and I just needed to go in and make small changes here and there to fit with our gym and our culture. I like how it really categorized new client, former client, and hot and cold leads. It’s just fire and forget," Quinn said.

He said the amount of emails included with UpLaunch would have taken him hours to create with MailChimp.

Professionally Written Content

Instead of agonizing over content strategy, UpLaunch gave CrossFit Smithfield professionally-written emails, blog posts, and articles that he could easily customize to fit his gym’s personality and culture.

Automated Follow Up

Whether it's converting new leads, winning someone back, or strengthening Quinn’s relationship with existing members, email and SMS outreach helped keep CrossFit Smithfield in front of their prospective and current members.

Scheduling Functionality

"I would say UpLaunch has saved us at least 30 hours a week. At least," Quinn said.
