Why Publish an E-Newsletter?

"Permission e-mail campaigns are ten times more effective than direct mail campaigns."(source: IMT Strategies)


If you've got a "house list" of business relationships, you've got an extremely valuable asset. An asset that a quality E-Newsletter is perfectly suited to take advantage of. Specifically...

  • An E-Newsletter Increases Lead Generation and Cross Selling.
  • An E-Newsletter Provides A Low Cost, Instantaneous Channel For Sending Messages. 
  • An E-Newsletter Opens Up A Two-Way Dialogue With Customers And Prospects.
  • An E-Newsletter Hypercharges Your Existing Marketing Efforts.
  • An E-Newsletter Provides Instant, Measurable Results.
With a variable cost per newsletter of nearly zero, you will never again have to weigh the benefits of printing more materials or agonize over whether or not person X is "worthy" of the cost of sending information.
Networking Tip: Be Prepared
by Gail Watson, Regional Director, eWomen Network
eWN Event Page - Gail watson
Networking our interactions can be brief and quick. 
Practice a 30 and 60 second 'self commercial' that say 1) who are, 2)what you do and 3) how you help people. 
You know those questions are coming so be prepared for them!
