LIWL Newsletter Sign Up

How to keep up to date on whats happening!

Are you signed up for my newsletter? If the answers yes then thats great, but since December I’ve sent out several newsletters and many haven’t even opened them. Do you remember back in May 2018 when GDPR came in and i sent out a newsletter stating that if you didn’t click the link and agree to receiving further newsletters from me you’d no longer receive them? This is because this was a legal email every business had to send out to their newsletter signups and if you didn’t respond then you opted out. Only 47.7% opened it, 8 unsubscribed as that meant they no longer wanted to receive an email and the rest just didn’t open it, this means those who didn’t open it will no longer receive my emails.

My newsletters are there to inform you of whats going on, when you sign up for these its because you want to be able to see whats happening first and to also make sure you don’t miss out on maybe new products, a one off discount code, free postage maybe…….it could be anything! If you’ve not received an email off me lately, then you’ll need to sign up with me again. I have started to remove inactive accounts who haven’t opened an email off me in the last 12 months. You may wonder why i do this? Well it free’s up space for someone who would like to read my newsletters, i only get so much space before I’m charged for sending them, so to me its a little bit of a waste having someone on my list who hasn’t opened it in 12 months. Now there could be several reasons why they haven’t opened it, no longer use that email, put me in their spam folder or marked it not to receive newsletters on what news I’ve got to share. On Friday 14th February i sent out a newsletter offering 12% off orders for the weekend only. Only 31.4% of this signed up opened the email, some who opened it took advantage of the discount as it was one of the highest I have given in a long time and it was a one off too, more of a test to see who would open the email. So my message i want to get out today is…….if you sign up for a newsletter with any company, open it no matter what the head line might say as you just never know what might be hidden inside that email.

only if you wish to receive my newsletters. Once you sign up an email will be sent to you straight away to confirm you’ve requested this, you must confirm as if you don’t the system wont add you to the mailing list. Im going to be sharing more and more via my newsletter and also my blog too as have you every thought how would you communicate with me if all social media went down? Now i would communicate through my newsletter and blog and when i blog you too can leave a comment so if for example you had a question about something on my blog you could ask me and then i would respond and it could also answer someone else’s question too. The power of blogging can be very helpful and i really want more and more of my customers to see each Monday I’m blogging, some weeks i may blog more if I’ve something important to share, its always viewable and a great way to be able to get hold of me too.

Make a note in your diary for every week to checkout what I’ve shared and leave me a comment too. I really want to reach out to so many through blogging and with your help this will be possible.

 

I hope you all have a great day and your week ahead is full of sparkle. Don’t forget its half term so I’m taking a few days off this week so dispatch times are currently at 6 working days, this excludes weekends.

 

Happy melting!
