Cleveland.com podcast ‘Buckeye Talk,’ run by Doug Lesmerises, wanted to find a way to bridge the conversation with its audience between episodes and create an exclusive community for loyal fans. They use Subtext not only to share news and analysis before it hits the public, but also to take questions that will be answered on their podcast, organize members-only zoom events, and more.

The Subtext campaign “Career Self-Care” offers a daily text with mindfulness tips, micro-challenges, and tactics to navigate the modern workplace from Inc.com Columnist Minda Zetlin. This subscription campaign is a source of reoccurring monthly revenue and gives Minda the chance to offer her insight directly to her most loyal readers.
Artist and TikTok star ROSIE, has grown a loyal fan base she calls ‘Rosebuds’. She regularly engaged directly with her fans via social DMs, but was looking for a frictionless way to continue nourishing these relationships. Subtext helped ROSIE own her fan conversations, and she quickly realized how effortlessly SMS allowed her to form genuine relationships with individual fans. In fact, it’s the ease of the platform that has allowed her to track and achieve a host response rate of over 50%, increasing fan engagement and reaching the Rosebuds in a one-to-one and one-to-many setting, at scale.
