Email Newsletters 101

6:00p.m. to 8:00p.m.
Trade School Indy
1125 Brookside Ave
Indianapolis US

Having an email newsletter is the easiest (and cheapest) way to reach a lot of people at once to spread the good word! Whether you own a business, organize a non-profit, or send out general announcements on behalf of a neighborhood or group - having a newsletter set up will make your life a whole lot easier. Using Mailchimp (it's FREE!), we will work together to create, design, and manage a database for your newsletter. This class is for people who have never sent a newsletter or used Mailchimp, and it's recommended you understand how to use a computer and send email to benefit. This is a 3-part class. In this first introduction course we will get your account set up, design a basic template, import any email addresses, and come up with a plan for your future newsletters. *This is a BYOD (bring your own device) class in which students will be expected and encouraged to work through exercises and learn by using their own computer.

Bring one of the following:
a letter filled with raw emotion on anything you want (bring with you to class)
an introduction to a working comedian
an introduction to someone that TRULY believes in aliens
anything lavender (must be all-natural)
fresh flowers or dried lavender
homemade coffee creamers (no low-fat/artifical ingredients, preferably organic)
homemade or local natural linen sprays
interesting books on solidarity, barter, exchange, alternative economies, or radical education for our Trade School library
something else you’d like to offer (email your teacher before class)
something with the Trade School logo on it (bunting, posters, art, photographs)
to volunteer for this class as a facilitator (email Trade School before class)
X-Files memorabilia
yummy bagged tea to serve during Trade School classes
