LYFETYMES, a party planning platform which makes it easier for anyone to plan and host a party- from family gatherings to VIP parties – is here to disrupt the multi-billion dollar party planning industry and puts it on the cutting edge of the digital platform.
“Our goal is to make Millions of Memories. LYFETYMES is your All-In-One Digital Party and Celebration Planner; you can plan all your celebrations in one experience and end-to-end,” says Katie Cunningham, founder and CEO of LYFETYMES. “It’s great for Birthday Parties, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, Holiday’s, Graduation Parties, or Any Occasion. We take the stress out of planning, allowing you to spend more time celebrating and making memories. You can start planning a party or collaborating with Co-Hosts in 30 seconds from your couch in your pajamas.”
Deciding to step away from her career as Vice President in Mortgage Finance for several Fortune 100 Companies, Katie Cunningham was inspired to develop a business that empowers the people and families that she loves the most with a party planning platform.
After a decade of spending time in Mortgage Finance at Citi and a few other Fortune 100 Companies – Katie found it difficult to balance the responsibilities of the Corporate World and being a mother who could be there to celebrate all the memories and life events of her loved ones. The time she had at home when she wasn’t being whisked away from city to city, she was in charge of planning many life events for her family and friends, from Birthdays, Baby Showers to Funerals. Frustrated at the lack of tools and options to help her manage the chaos after trying service and app that was available – she decided to leave the Corporate World and build something she knew could change the lives of millions of people experiencing the same frustrations as her.
“Our users can create a sharable Party Website in a click via Text, Email, Facebook to share details with guests in a click, get instant RSVPs, verify who’s attending, venue mapping and even send a note back to the host and even personalize your URL We also are the only planning site where you can personalize your party website with photo AND video now.” says Katie.
Every pain point and frustration that she felt over the years being Planner-in-Chief of dozens of events, she’s built as a solution into LYFETYMES. Rather than being exclusive to any one type of party or celebration, LYFETYMES aims to be inclusive of all different types of events spreading across all cultures by building tools that empower planners to easily plan, invite, collaborate, and share memories.
“LYFETYMES takes the stress out of planning, allowing you to spend more time celebrating and making memories” – as Katie puts it.
LYFETYMES has experienced massive early traction and engagement. Thousands of people have signed up on their platform, and have invited tens of thousands of guests over the last 30 days, with an unheard of 60% engagement rate on the platform.
Clearly many people resonate with the message of LYFETYMES and what it aims to do to help people plan events more easily.
Katie announced that she is fundraising for LYFETYMES through Wefunder – an online fundraising and investment platform that crowdsources funding starting November 10, 2019. She intends on expanding the platform’s features and functionality and to skyrocket growth based on the early traction she’s received.
“LYFETYMES has been very successful on Pinterest, where people go to begin ideation of parties has 15MM impressions and 350K engagements in the last 90 days with no marketing spend,” says Katie. “Now that we’ve validated our business model and demand, we’re ready to scale to the next level”
