Setting up an e-mail list?

We promised to keep you in the loop with the BTS (behind the scenes) “stuff” as we continue to update, configure and improve the site. As we continue to move along, we have added an option for you to subscribe to our mailing list. For now, that is located over on the upper right hand side of the screen right under the search box. While we are still working out the details on how that will work, our initial thoughts are that we will send out either a weekly or monthly (your thoughts on the interval are needed) of posts that have taken place.

If you watch the site daily, you will see the most recent posts. If, by chance, you are to busy to do that, we understand and will remind you of what you have missed via an e-mail. Once again, back to the interval of how often to send that “gentle” reminder – Weekly or monthly?

Post your thoughts on that update interval.

Thanks Curt

    Hi Rich!

    Thanks for joining us. As soon as we get our Sonic we will be start sharing what we learn and hopefully some useful tips. I’ve been thinking about some ways we can do some “virtual workshops” in the future. Stay tuned for more. It would be great to add in your experiences of going through the upgrade process.

    Hi Curt,

    My name is Rich Albertini. I attended the workshops you and Ric did in Lancaster. I still have my Gala with Golden Gate & OX7up which is still working very well. I added on the OAS EX1 Expander with most of the activation codes. I also have a Scala (working well) which I purchased from Jackie when Jay passed. I am now looking to upgrade the Scala to the Sonic when the upgrade becomes available in U.S. I played Joann’s Sonic at Ralph’s before it was delivered to Joann, it sounds wonderful and fun to use. Hope you get yours soon, you will love it. Thanks for setting up this website.

    Rich

    After a few test runs we decided to go with a weekly summary that will be sent via e-mail in the event you missed a post. We will occasionally send out special announcements to everyone that has subscribed. Make sure you sign up – You don’t want to miss out on anything!

    WordPress has RSS functionality. If you use an RSS client you get the new articles as soon as they’re published.

    Good luck with the site.

      Thanks Seamaster and perfect timing. We setup a daily RSS feed to test out that function overnight for ourselves. One thought we had was to set up daily and weekly digests and allow the user to select which they prefer. Need to poke around a bit to better understand the best way to do that.

      We decided to go with MailChimp as the e-mail platform behind the scenes as we have used it in the past. Pretty easy to integrate with WordPress.
