Newsletter News

In case I didn't mention it previously, I have decided to create a new schedule for my blog posts on this site. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Here's my logic behind it:

MARKETING MONDAY: Topics related to sales and marketing of your books and yourself as an author. 

WRITING WEDNESDAY: Topics related to writing. This is a huge area so it might include anything.

FUN FRIDAY: This might include contests, giveaways, anything of a lighter nature that doesn't require so much concentration. 

So there you have it. That's the future as we see it at this point and those are the days you can look forward to seeing something new and exciting (hopefully) on this page.

And since this is our first MARKETING MONDAY, the first new and exciting thing I wanted to mention today is my most recent discovery of MAIL CHIMP. It is a FREE service that you might want to check out, especially if you're interested in providing your friends, followers, customers, etc., with an update on your activities, products, work, whatever. (That's a marketing exercise.) Mail Chimp is an opt-in program, so there's never any spam involved. If you take a look to the right, near the top, you'll see a sign-up form. Just enter your email address and you will receive a copy of my newsletter every week. 

There are a lot of possibilities with a newsletter and a large mailing list. (Mine is currently quite small, since I just started it. I hope you will sign up so it can grow a bit more.) Anyway, as I was saying, I can see some potential with a newsletter. For example, if we have a giveaway here on this site, I can announce the details, and the winner, via the newsletter.

So, that's today's topic. Wednesday, I'm going to post an article about openings and beginnings, so be sure and check back for that. Meanwhile, feel free to sign up for the newsletter and share this post with your Facebook and Twitter friends. 

Keep writing!
