Are You a Newsletter subscriber? Do you want to be one? Do you want to be eligible to win cool prizes? If you answer, YES, to any of these questions, this post is for you.
I have an interesting problem. Some of my newsletter subscribers are missing out on prizes. 0.O
This year I’m releasing a new book (2nd edition from my series or a Quick Read) every 3 weeks. With each new release, one lucky newsletter subscriber is picked at random to receive a prize. Last month it was an autographed book and this month it was a beautiful, handmade wooden book charm on a keychain. But my subscribers aren’t opening the newsletter -or- haven’t told their mail server the email is friendly and shouldn’t go to junk. Last month I was able to send the autographed book to a happy runner-up. This month the winner and the runner-up failed to respond. An awesome prize unclaimed.
So how do I tell my subscribers to please watch for the newsletter and read it because they are missing out on some lovely prizes? I will put it in my newsletter but isn’t that like having a billboard on a highway that says “If you can’t read, please call this number and we will hook you up with a tutor. -Brought to you by the Literacy Council.” If they aren’t opening the newsletter I question how effective, putting the notice there, would be. The other option is what I’m doing now. I’m posting here in my blog and have put a notice on FaceBook and will on Twitter.
Please. I have a newsletter to share things with those who are interested in my writing. The letters are happy. If you would like to be eligible to win a prize and want to be on my newsletter you can sign up on this page or, if you need a link for some reason, here it is. I would love to have you as part of the family. http://eepurl.com/bM5fYH
