e-Holiday Party Adventure

e-Newsletter season's greetingsEmail marketing was developed with businesses in mind to make it easy for them to connect with customers, and for customers to share their message with their networks. But what’s to say you can’t use it for your personal means? Nothing, absolutely nothing.

With Thanksgiving, Chanukah, Christmas, and New Years just around the bend, Constant Contact e-newsletters are the fun, efficient, and inexpensive way to send holiday greetings across the globe. Holiday templates abound to make your message look professional, and you can add family photos to add a personal touch. Leave the drudgery of writing out scores of greeting cards and addressing envelopes by hand one-by-one behind, and get on the Constant Contact bandwagon!

If you live in the Verde Valley area or plan to visit, I’ll be hosting several parties for us to gather together in a small group, sip cider, munch on holiday cookies, AND create your very own e-greeting with my coaching. Receive a 60-day Constant Contact trial account* (your first gift of the holiday season!), have fun, learn, network, and get your card writing out of the way in plenty of time to enjoy other aspects of the season. And, you’ll even be able to find out who opened your greeting!

Space is limited, so even though there is no fee – except to bring some of your favorite treats to share – please register ASAP. Click here for more info and to register for the Wednesday, November 14th gathering.

If you are unable to attend, please contact me to set up your trial account, and arrange for a free one-hour of coaching so that you too can take advantage of fun, inexpensive, and efficient holiday greetings to connect with friends, family, and colleagues.

I look forward to hearing from you. And, speaking of holidays, Happy Halloween!

* Up to 100 contacts and 5 images.

EVENT: “Intro to WordPress” Saturday, July 14, 2012

WordPress logo

Saturday, July 14, 2012
10:00 AM – Noon
Doors open at 9:30 AM

Village of Oak Creek

Specific address will be provided upon registration.
Click here for more information and to register.

Space is limited.

This is part of our “Websites and Coffee” series created for you to:

  • Not go it alone
  • Move your website forward with ease and grace, and
  • Stay within a small budget.

In our “Intro to WordPress” workshop, we’ll take a little time to get to know each other and find out why we think we need a website. We’ll provide some simple reasons to support the benefits of having a website you can maintain yourself, and highlight why we think WordPress is the way to go.

We’re asking everyone to bring their laptop because we want to make this adventure as hands-on as possible. We’re trying something new this time – to replace the projector-and-PowerPoint presentation – and we’re excited to see how you’ll like it!

We’ve created – slapped together is more like it – a website we can all use as a laboratory. We’ll get you logged in to the back end of this site so we can access it during the presentation.

But wait! There’s more! Continue reading »
