This Article on the Email Marketing Chronicles blog makes a good case for curated Email newsletters. They are obviously not right for everyone but for some companies the curated email newsletter may be the way to go.
“For the recipient, the curated newsletter can be a blessing, saving them from sorting through all kinds of emails and searches to find up-to-date information. Plus a well-curated newsletter will include information they might not have come across on our own! It’s like news you can use in a nutshell. Curated newsletters can keep us informed and save us time, all at the same time. What’s not to like about that?”
It also just happens that we here at Spike have a newsletter option for you smaller business owners out there called Open Resource you should check that out, hmm? *nudge*
