Studio newsletter



I've been playing with Mail Chimp!

It's part of my plan to keep in regular contact with the galleries that sell my prints and cards . . . then I thought, perhaps I should send a newsletter to previous customers and maybe followers of my blog? So I'm experimenting with setting up a mailing list specifically to receive monthly news from my studio by email . . . with links to Magic Cochin's Emporium and PPPs and my website and galleries and anything else that I'm excited about.

Above is a preview of this month's newsletter – it hasn't been posted yet, so if you'd like to add you name to the mailing list just fill in this little form (you can unsubscribe at any time, of course and I won't share your details with anyone else or deluge you with messages).

  1. What a great idea - I send newsletters too, for those interested in courses and also customers and enquirers about my work. I find it is really appreciated and try hard to make it look attractive, yours looks gorgeous! - inspired to think about including blog readers too -I've signed up and look forward to receiving. Many thanks.

  2. I really enjoy the creativity of marketing my business. Who are my customers? where do I find them? Very satisfying when you catch one... sort of like fishing I suppose!

  3. Hello Celia, I am wondering if the newsletters would contain different content from that of your blog?

  4. Hi Jennifer - thanks, that's very encouraging

    Hi Matron - very good analogy :-)

    Hi Toffeeapple - the newsletter will be just one page and will be a round up of new prints/cards, galleries selling my work, dates for art fairs, etc There may also be special offers such as discount codes for Magic Cochin's Emporium.
    So, yes it's more like the news page from my main website.

  6. Hello Celia,

    I am timidly visiting to ask if you have sold out of your delicious Valentine's Day prints? I would very much like to buy one if not.

    Warmest wishes,

    Stephanie

  7. Good Luck with the newsletter...

    P.S. try super glue on your fingers (I know it sounds a bit crazy but it does work!)

I love reading all the comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply here in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy.
You don't need to have a blog to leave a comment, you can select the name/URL option and fill in just your name instead of a blog link.
And, I've turned off that annoying word verification malarkey, to make it easy for you :-)
