Be the First to Know: CMS E-mail Newsletters

April 11, 2006 by

If you want to be in the know, sign up for our e-mail newsletters. That’s where you can hear things first:

  • Last week we told our e-mail subscribers about our plans to accept donations the day before we announced it on the site.
  • Our new guest blogger policy went to our e-mail newsletter days before we talked about it on the blog.
  • We told our e-mail newsletter subscribers about the new Church Marketing Lab a full three weeks before we made it public on the blog.
  • We even mentioned some of these coming changes way back in our February e-mail newsletter.

So the bottom line? If you want to be in on what’s happening with Church Marketing Sucks and our non-profit parent the Center for Church Communciation, sign up for our e-mail newsletters.

Which E-mail Newsletter?
We do offer several e-mail newsletters, not all of which are sent out regularly (or at all–at least not yet). Here’s a quick rundown:

  • Center for Church Communication (General) – A general list for the Center for Church Communication as a whole. So far we don’t have a set schedule for this list.
  • Church Marketing Sucks (General) – A monthly newsletter for Church Marketing Sucks that includes a note from us about the latest CMS news, recent popular entries, a run down of the month’s Church Marketing Lab entries and more. Right now this is our main list.
  • Upcoming Events & Seminars – An events list that we haven’t utilized much, though we plan to start very soon.
  • Ways I Can Help (Time, Treasure, Talent) – This is our volunteer list. Whenever we need help with something, we send an e-mail to this list. If you want to help Church Marketing Sucks in any way, this is the list to join.
  • Guest Bloggers & Contributors – This is a newer list to help us stay in touch with our guest bloggers as we develop a community to help generate content for the site.
  • Special Partners and Resources – This is another list we’ve yet to put to use, but as we partner with other organizations this is a good way to be informed.
  • Media Contacts (press releases, etc.) – Rather self explanatory, don’t you think?

So that’s a look at our e-mail newsletter offerings. We usually announce everything online eventually, but if you want to be among the first to know, sign up.

    Doesn’t that defeat the point of a blog? Isn’t a blog supposed to have the latest and greatest information? Or is that just a common stereotype
