This Wednesday, November 30th, there’s a free class on email marketing led by the amazing McKenna Hallett! So – how’s your email list? Is it growing steadily – or a bit stagnant? And when’s the last time you actually contacted them?If you are ready to develop a great list of email addresses to start marketing to, you need a plan! If you have been building a list, but haven’t sent anything for months, an email “out of the blue” can cause more harm than good! Learn how to get that first one graciously opened. Email marketing is still the number one tool. It’s still (at least) 40 times more effective at gaining customers than Facebook, and Twitter combined. Likes and follows don’t help the bottom line. In this workshop, you will learn how to: • Get started with gathering email contacts • Establish an organized contact segmentation process • Grow your email lists online and in person • Keep your subscribers interested and engaged after they sign up. Join Mckenna Hallett for this in-person gathering. She is a wordsmith, copywriter, and marketing professional who has over 50 years in sale
