Happy New Year ##firstname##

Have you made any New Year’s Resolutions? 😉 Maybe we can’t help you quit smoking, learn Mandarin or lose weight, but if ‘growing your business’ was one of them – then we have some really good news for you 👇 😉

This year (for the first time in quite a while) we actually made some New Year’s Resolutions ourselves:


1) Improve our tool for you, so you can grow your business with email marketing even easier and faster – a lot of new features that have been in the pipeline for a while, including an improved interface and editor!

2) Help you get better results from email marketing by giving you proven tips, strategies and templates – designed especially for your business

3) Help you get more customers by featuring you and your business on our blog and in our monthly newsletter – hence the new ‘user spotlight’ section below (psst, you can be the first one we feature, ##firstname## 😉)

As you know – the best way to achieve your goals is to find yourself an accountability partner – would you like to be one for us? 😉

 

From now on, every month – we will be updating you on our progress on those three goals in the following sections of our newsletter:

  • Email Marketing Academy – tested tips, strategies and templates to help you improve your email marketing

  • GAN News – juicy new features & major improvements

  • User Spotlight – interviews with *you* - our users – on their business, and best (email) marketing practices
