Creating an Email List

Email marketing is one of the most powerful and productive ways to reach new customers, grow your sales, and better engage your current customers and fans. It not only keeps your existing customers up to date about new designs, products or sales, but it also keeps your brand top in their minds for the next time they want to treat themselves. When it comes to effort and sales impact, email marketing tends to have the highest return and is super valuable in connecting with your base and sustainably growing your business. And, the best part is we can help!

External Email Newsletter 

If you're looking to set up an external email newsletter, your first step is to sign up with an Email Service Provider (ESP). This a service that will not just send your emails, but track how effective they are to you and your customers. Most ESP's will have templates, analytics, and be able to target specific customers. This is great for people who only want specific emails, like sales announcements, to keep people subscribed. Here are a few ESPs that we like:
