Write your own Newsletters

Why am I modelling a hoodie with ‘newsletter genius’ written on the back? Because my Writing Without Waffle tipsheet was awarded ‘newsletter of the week’ by Constant Contact, and they asked me to send a picture of me wearing my prize that they could share on their social media platforms. My tipsheet has also won their ‘all star’ award for five years running. More importantly, it wins me business. I can help you write a newsletter that works for you too.

All Star 2013Research shows that 68% of customers leave a business because of ‘perceived indifference’. One way to retain your customers is to keep in touch with them via a newsletter.
