Pampered Chef: Tasty Tidbits question ... anybody can answer

    I signed up for Joy's site and have been playing around with sending e-mails. (I HATE Live and its sending limits so I ran screaming back to Yahoo, blue line and all, but that is another rant.)

    My question (since the April newsletter is coming out) is whether I can customize it in any way.

    Ideally, I'd like to replace the "host of the month" section (since March was a lame month for me and February was not much better) to announce my "Lordy Lordy" sale, for instance.

    Can this be done without a lot of drama and redesign? I'll TRY to be brief ...

    You can edit it however you want. First you click forward to open it up in a new window, then you can add/delete/change whatever you want in the body of the email, and then enter your addresses and send.

    Next month, if all goes according to plan, I"ll also be rolling out my "build-your-own" newsletter editor, which will allow you to choose the articles you want to include, the order in which you want them to appear, and then add anything else in the online visual editor before sending it to yourself (and then you forward).

    Awesome!!!

    Will there still be the one you design? Is "build you own" just another option?

    Yes, the build your own is another option. I will still continue to make the pre-designed ones.

    I just had to share the news with all of you. I met someone at an annual activity that I am involved in with my DH about 3 years ago and somehow PC got into the subject. She asked for fundraiser info then and asked to be put on my mailing list. Needless to say I gave her the info put her on my list and for the past 3 years nothing. I ran into her a couple of weeks ago after I subscribed to Joy's newsletter and sent it out and of course she got a copy. She saw me at this annual event and told me that they do want to do a fundraiser this year with me and asked again for the info. She said she would get back to me sometime in the next week. Low and behold not less than 2 hours later she came back to where I was stationed and said that they would like to do the fundraiser in April and gave me all of the information I needed to get things to her.

    The newsletter was so well done that it got more attention than what I had been sending out and got my name back into her thoughts and I got the fundraiser. She told me that she was planning on going to the event and remembered that is where we met. She said if I wasn't there she would have e-mailed me but it was better to talk in person.

    So thanks Joy and everyone else for convincing me that this was what I needed to do. We won't be closing the fundraiser until April 20th or so.

    The unfortunate problem was after I sent out the outlet update e-mail last night she wanted to know if they could use this as part of their fundraiser and I had to tell her no that it could not be done that way but if people wanted to order from the outlet they could separately but it would not count towards the fundraiser. So, I'll have to wait and see if I get more customers from that end.

    What is your cookie security level? Do you have a different browser you can try?

    I've also been making a few updates so it might not let you in while I've been editing...

    I sometimes wonder if people buy off the outlet emails because the prices are such bargains, or if they just *think* they are good deals, or if it's because the photos are all laid out clearly for people to see... I wonder if I made up a generic email with just all the products laid out in grid pattern, that it might get some people that way. I don't know why someone would want to look at it that way, rather than flip through a catalog, but I am guessing the clean style may appeal to some... plus it has "just the facts" - item and price.

    No, I'm done :( Strange... I haven't made any changes that would affect logging in, and my developer hasn't done anything since last night that I am aware of.

    What is the security level setting on your cookies?

    In IE, it's under Tools, Options, Privacy...

    I know sometimes it changes with different software that you install, or if you get automatic updates from Microsoft.
