Newsletter Month - Get Your Organization Better Connected

Hi OCC News Subscribers,

August is Newsletter Month at OurChurch.Com. An eNewsletter can be an incredibly effective (and inexpensive) way to keep people informed and connected with your organization. It's especially important this time of year as many people have been on vacation during the summer and may feel out of the loop.

All month long we're focusing on helping you regularly distribute an online newsletter and do it well. We'll talk about the importance of newsletters, the newsletter tools OCC provides, and how to use them effectively. We'll also unveil OurChurch.Com's newly redesigned newsletters.

Take a moment to check out all the things related to eNewsletters going on this month at OurChurch.Com.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck, CEO
OurChurch.Com

2) NE1 eNewsletter Module
3) Custom CMS Express eNewsletter

1) Domain/Ad-Free Upgrade Special
If you have a free site, you can't pass up this deal. Get a year of the Domain Hosting Package and a year of the Ad-Free Option for just $99. Imagine your site with its own domain name and completely ad-free. Additionally, the Domain Hosting Package gives you access to the eNewsletter module in the NE1 Web Builder (not to mention the calendar and blog modules). Normally, a year of the Domain Package and Ad-Free Option costs $150, but this month only you can save $51.

2) NE1 eNewsletter Module
One of the most useful modules in our NE1 Web Builder is the eNewsletter. It makes newsletter distribution easy. Some of its features include:

  • Enables people to subscribe/unsubscribe with no help from you (the web administrator)
  • Includes a WYSIWYG editor, so you can format your newsletter text and include images.
  • Automatically archives newsletters, so visitors can see previous editions any time.
The NE1 eNewsletter modules comes in the Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze and Domain packages, so if you have a free site, you'll need to upgrade. But with the Domain/Ad-Free Upgrade Special, now is the perfect time.

3) Custom CMS Express eNewsletter
OCC's Custom CMS Express service provides a great-looking unique website that is full of interactive features and easily managed by multiple people. One of the most popular CMS components is the eNewsletter. While the NE1 eNewsletter is very good, the CMS eNewsletter has many more valuable features.

  • Distribute multiple newsletters (for example a church-wide newsletter, plus one for children, youth, etc)
  • Newsletter templates which make your newsletters look like your website.
  • The ability to track the number of people who read each newsletter and click each link.
If you're ready to take you're site to a whole new level, consider having OurChurch.Com design a Custom CMS Express site for you with the eNewsletter component. Request a free phone consultation.

4) CWT Blog Tackles eNewsletters
Want to make the most of your eNewsletter? Want to know how to increase readership and participation from subscribers? This month we're talking about newsletter issues in our Christian Web Trends Blog. Check it out and post your 2 cents in the comments.

5) eNewsletter Forum Discussion
Got questions about eNewsletters? Or are you a newsletter pro with wisdom to share? Join us in the OCC Forums as we talk about what you want to talk about when it comes to eNewsletters.

6) Featured Sites that Distribute Newsletters
One of the best things a web administrator can do is learn from others. While we focus on newsletters, we want to feature sites that already distributing eNewsletters so that other web administrators can see examples and learn from them. Are you regularly distributing an eNewsletter through your website? Drop us a note in the help desk that includes the URL of your newsletter and we'll add a link to your site here.
7) Brand New OCC Newsletters
Last, but not least, we have been hard at work redesigning our newsletters to improve the way they look and make them more useful to subscribers. If you received this announcement in your email, you've already seen one example. Keep an eye out for the Webmaster Newsletter in particular which has some new features including a video, a poll, and a coupon for a discount only available through the newsletter.

Post your comments and questions concerning this announcement in our forums.
