Dialing in your Email

Email has always been a HUGE part of my business! Whether it is corresponding with brides or photographers I feel like my businesses have always relied heavily on this form of communication. There have been days where I sent over 100 personal emails manually!


I have some tips and tricks for emailing that have helped me so much over the years and I'm gonna 
send them out in my next free email newsletter so be sure to sign up on the right side of my blog.

Just insert your email address and that's it.

I usually send out one email every 5 weeks so don't worry I'm not gonna start spamming you. :) I have just over 16,000 people on my email list and I get a really good open rate because there is a lot of good info in the emails and it's all opt-in.

Rock on!

Bummer ed...lots of support issues I bet. lol. Don't worry... I'll solve that problem for you soon. :)

No, support issue don't go to me ... that's not my job.

Must've been cancelations then...

Those don't come to me either ... they rarely happen anyway. From what I've seen, that's not going to change any time soon either. Have fun, though ...

So don't keep us in suspense what were all the emails from....everyone is dying to know....

I Go by Ed said...

Err, who knows ... just had a cluttered inbox. Mostly internal stuff I'm sure. We moved our email to Google Apps, so I just started fresh.

There's a reason support emails and other important things aren't handled by me–I'm too unorganized :)

That's a mighty big email list! Good thing there is a tool to help you keep it all straight, otherwise it wouldn't be possible!

I really Like iContact. When used in moderation it can be a great way to catch up with folks. Some people spam their hearts out but we know you wouldn;t do that right DJ :)
