Email newsletters should still be a key part of your online communications work. A well-run email list strengthens your social media and website efforts to engage with your key audiences. In this short workshop, we will look at two key ways to run an effective email list: growing your list and making sure people keep reading what you send them.

We will look at best practices for list growth and engagement, and examine some key steps you can take to make your email list a more powerful tool to support your work. This workshop is for anyone who would like to make sure their email list growth, content and strategy are the most effective they can be.
