    Okay, due to the urging of another consultant, I am posting my September 2009 Newsletter.

    Please give me your honest feedback and let me know what you think!

    Thanks!

    I can't get it big enough to really tell, but it looks nice from what I can see...

    I can't see it very big either. Is this something you print, or email?

    Personally, I think it's a little busy. I would have a hard time reading it. I'm the type of person who prefers something a bit longer with more consistency in columns, organization, etc. But I do like that it's very colorful and eye catching!

    I can't read everything either because it's too small, but I can grasp the jest of most of it by recognizing the specials and such. My first thought was also "too busy", but I'm one of those that doesn't like too much info. My step-sister used to sell Pampered Chef a few years ago. I never read her newsletters because it literally took 10 min's to get through the whole thing.

    I'm not a "dots" fan either, but I really do LOVE the dots border that you put across the top & bottom!!! Super cute!!

    I understand the busy aspect, however I have several customers that have complained of the longer versions being cut off at the bottom. So I experiemented with this one going wider to get additional information into the customer's hands.

    I have experimented for about 6 months with giving more information and less information. I have not determined which I like better.

    The reason I started doing my own newsletter is that I have several customers that receive other consultant's newsletters (Both PC and other direct sales) and got complaints that they all look alike.

    I'm not sure what the answer is, but I appreciate the comments! Please feel free to continue and I will try to upload the publisher file.
     
  10. do you make them or do have someone else make them for you and you just send the info? I think there are alot of good sections on there.

    Thanks for the compliment.
    I actually created the template and change it each month depending on what is going on I have attached last month's newsletter to give you an idea.
