Global Forum / Exactly How to Send Bulk Emails From Your Desktop Computer
« Last post by emailsaler on October 10, 2019, 02:45:24 PM »
Before you can send bulk emails from your computer, think about who you will send your newsletters to. If you have a list of buyers or clients, you can start sending them since you are in relationship with those people. Only don't forget about the unsubscribe link. Include it into each mail newsletter and care about managing opt-out requests.

But what if you're just starting your online business and don't have any mailing list yet? Many online marketers buy email address or harvest them on the Internet. On my opinion it's not the right way to go because if you send messages to people who don't know who you are, they are likely to consider your emails as spam and hit 'spam' button in their email clients. If your newsletter generates many spam complaints, this hurts your sender reputation and deliverability. But the worst thing is that the ISP can shut your account down for sending spam emails. Furthermore, you can't be sure that all email addresses you buy are good. You can hit a spam trap account, be labelled as spammer and come into troubles with your ISP.

Thus, the best way to get an email list is us a signup form on your own website or blog. People will come to your site and subscribe consciously. This is what is called permission in email marketing. People permit you to email them by giving you their email addresses. When you see the number of your subscribers grow, you can start sending bulk emails to your list.

Now you have to choose bulk email newsletter software that meets your needs best. I would recommend that you choose a desktop email sender program because it allows you keep your email list and messages in-house without uploading them to any 3rd party database.

Another great feature you should look for in email sender software is tracking capabilities. If you are serious about email marketing, you can't afford to not track your email campaigns. If you don't know how your readers like or dislike your message, you won't be able to send them what they need or take any profit from your list.

If your bulk email software has no built-in email tracking feature, you can find many email tracking services on the Internet and choose the service that suits you best. Usually email tracking reports tell you who opened your message, who clicked links in the message, who printed and who forwarded the message. Some email tracking services also provide you with the report about the email clients your recipients used to open your email -- you will know which email clients/web based accounts you need to tailor your email for.

Don't forget to test your email newsletter prior to sending it to the whole list. It's very simple. Setup email accounts with big free ISP like AOL, Yahoo, Hotmail, Gmail and send a copy of your email to your test email addresses. See if the message arrived into the Inbox or Junk folder. If the message is treated as junk mail, you have some food for thought. Probably your email has spam looking content, or links you use in the email are from blacklisted domains, or HTML code is broken. Tailor and test your message until it is delivered into the Inbox. Then send it to the whole list.

I'm moving to the area soon and wanted to see if there were any active groups doing work in the city. I know there's been some invitations to help out elsewhere, but I'd like to investigate local options.

I dug out two.

This little old lady is a sprightly 99 100 101 102 years young.



105, this week
                                                                                                                   4794

Ok, the sad news is that the little old lady checked out earlier this summer at a sprightly 106.
And 49 days later, her ashes were interred in this plot.

R.I.P.

Hello,

I'm trying to create good "content" for people that like community gardening.

If you wouldn't mind, for those of you who do community gardening, would you mind answering some or all of the following questions?

Why do you like gardening in general?

What do you like most about community gardening?

What problems do you encounter (in general) or with your tools while doing community gardening?

What do you dislike about community gardening?

Thanks!

Global Forum / Little walnuts in my new garden
« Last post by For009 on August 10, 2019, 02:55:14 PM »
Hello community!

I tell you that I bought a house, it is quite abandoned, and the same goes for your garden. I haven't had much money left to improve the state of the house, but I do have time to work in the garden (something I love). From there comes the next query (I have many more but I will start with this one).

Inside the jadin there are two small walnuts (approximately two meters high), the garden is not very large so I think they will occupy too much place if I let them grow freely, that is why I consider two options:

- Option 1: keep the size of the plants controlled by pruning. I am not an expert for what I have sought information, find this article on pruning of walnuts, who tell me is correct what it indicates there ?.

- Option 2: wait for the right time to extract the two plants and transplant them in my field. As for this, do you think they will survive the transplant?

Which of the two options is the viable? I hope you know how to advise me. :)

Hey Dithreabhach,

I'm a newbie too, just joined today. I live in Blyth, but I am originally from Wallsend. I am interested in Guerrilla Gardening generally, but mostly in fruit and nut tree planting in public/free spaces, and planting of wild flowers for pollinating insects.
Maybe we could get together sometime when we are both free and plan something?

All the Best,

Newcastle / Newbie Here!
« Last post by Dithreabhach on July 30, 2019, 07:34:34 PM »
Hi,
Just joined the site, though done a bit of guerrilla gardening on my council estate a few years ago. Want to get back into it and also connect with folks in Newcastle!
I live in beautiful (Ha Ha!  ;D ) Blakelaw. The estate that the council forgot! Local councillors are a waste of space and the local Community Council (Blakelaw & North Fenham) are a bunch of ineffectual seat occupiers!
Anyone interested in getting together and doing something in Newcastle please get in touch. I'm more than willing to travel to other parts of the city to help out.
Cheers,
Dithreabhach
