Melding communication channels and vehicles

Two new and very excited subscribers to the blog newsletterI’ve taken a big risk.

I’ve decided to merge two separate groups of people: people who subscribe to this blog, and people who subscribe to my increasingly infrequent but more formal html newsletter.

This could either see a mass ‘unsubscribe’ as the expectations of one group are not met, or else it will be ‘Business As Usual’.

I have/had 275 subscribers to the newsletter I ran on my main website, Hopkins Business Communication Training.com. But this evening I ported them across to this blog’s email service, run by Feedblitz.

The instructions weren’t 100% clear (or I wasn’t reading them clearly) and so I gave the subscribers some confusing information; I told them that they’d need to re-subscribe and so needed to click on a link.

In fact, they/you need do nothing to receive emails from me — my fault entirely. They/you do need to click if they/you want to unsubscribe.

If you are one of the subscribers to my main website’s newsletter and you received a confusing email from me, my apologies. If you want to keep hearing from me, then do nothing and all will continue as normal, albeit with a lot more frequent contact from me.

If you don’t want to hear from me anymore, then please ‘unsubscribe’ by clicking on the link at the bottom of the email you received.

Again, my sincere apologies for any confusion I may have caused you.

p.s. and ‘Welcome!’ :-)

    Congratulations on the big leap forward!

    I will happily do nothing — some say that’s what I do best — to make sure I receive your e-mail blitzes.

    Why, in Heaven’s name, would I not want to hear from you any longer? :)

    Ahhh Donna,

    You have a wisdom far in excess of your tender years and youthful looks! :-)
