Not-for-profit email newsletters

Here's Why You Need to be Sending Out an Enews

An electronic newsletter, better known as an enews, is a robust marketing tool, for almost all types of organisations – even if you’re in the not for profit space. It’s a great way to keep your community members engaged with everything you are doing and keep you at the front of their mind when you callout for donations or do your next membership drive. People who sign up to your enewsletter are called subscribers and they can consist of community members that you are already connected to, people on your database or new people that are interested in learning more about your organisation. Quite often someone will go from being merely a subscriber to someone actively engaged in your community.
