    2. Subscribed to about 4 DDR newsletters and only received one from Cindy Clemmons.
    I like her positive voice and flow of free information. The one newsletter I happened to catch had a great story about a friend of hers who had reaped the personal rewards of networking. Turns out she is a mutual friend. I also liked her great call to action at the end of the newsletter. My only comment would be to have larger more engaging images on the page (and more of them!). I think pictures are equally important as the wording.

    3. My favorite Newsletters -seems to be a theme here!
    Inspiration & Tools for Wholehearted Living
    by Life Coach, Linda Luke
    – She is my personal coach and sends her newsletter out every Monday like clockwork. I always know she will have topical and timely information.

    Martha Beck – Martha’s Daily Inspiration
-A daily inspirational message

    TUT -Note from the Universe
    Weekly inspirational messages

    What needs improving on our emails?
    The content needs improving. We have been sending out mostly workshop schedules with no tips or special photography related content. I also want to be sure we have a clear call to action in the newsletter.

    Since doing this exercise, we are also working with the titles to see if we could create more interest with different titles.

    I send my blog out automatically when I publish. I need to change the banner on the header to correspond more with the regular email.

    Having more useful info in the newsletter with a teaser title should encourage a higher open rate. (We have a decent open rate, but could always improve!) A clearer call to action at the end should encourage more sales!
