Beekeeping Forum Newsletter
I have been thinking about the idea of sending out to our registered members a newsletter that contains latest news regards the forum.
The idea is that many members may of joined up at the beginning of the forum and either forgot to bookmark us or have not realised how fast we have grown so failed to visit over the last few weeks.
Another good reason for the newsletter is that if it is an online edition then members can send it on to people in there beekeepers lists from the association they belong to (If the list is for an association that’s not affiliated) often the email you receive will have a list of all recipients on that clubs list that you could use.
This could be of interest to beekeepers that do not realise we have an online presence.
Ideas for the first newsletter could contain items such as:
An introduction to who we are and our aims.
Latest forum news.
A topic (article) of beekeeping interest.
Latest media news and a reply from a forum member.
What beekeepers should be doing this month in the Apiary.
New products on the market.
Anything else I have forgotten to add/you would like added?
What do members think good/bad idea?
This should help the forum to gain members very fast over the slow winter months if we go ahead.
