WordChicks

Hey Girls,

Sorry for the late update, I've been away a bit over the last month... Here's what we're up to tomorrow evening!!

Amelia Briscoe, one of our members who's been active in running the User Group meetup over at Inspire 9 is going to speak to us about Mailing Lists.  These are an often used, but much underrated part of a website.  So Amelia is going to take us through the following.

1. The reasons for having an email list. 

2. What kind of email list is right for your business 

3. Creating the right incentive to attract subscribers. 

4. Adding an email form to your site. 

5. Tweaking the email form to improve conversion.

W
e'll be meeting at the same time, in the same place, on the same Thursday of the month as usual and I'm really looking forward to seeing you there!

Here's the plan...

6:00 Arrive, chit chat, get comfy (know anyone who'd like to sponsor some food or drinks? Maybe you'd like to? Let me know and we'll see what we can do!!)

6:30 News, and Upcoming Events

6:35 Amelia Briscoe - Email Marketing Basics... Email Signup Forms, Mailing List Incentives, Why to use them and how to set them up on your website!

7:30 Wrap up and Tidy Up

7:45 Drinks and nibbles at the Hare and Grace.

See you there!

Dee

    thanx Amelia for your insight to email lists... as it turned out my flatmate had an instance at work where the company email had been resold and affiliated with some not so nice sites... would you have any info on how to track back after its happened?
