This issue is about Newsletters, in particular eNewsletters and event calendars. The marketing snippets below review some of the resources we like including Google Calendars and why you should produce an “eNewsletter,” archive the eNewsletter and pay attention to events around the U.S. Please review the marketing snippets below.

Newsletters “Yes,” but do you produce an eNewsletter vs “Print Newsletter” or Both? This statement is a repeat from the last issue but it is worth repeating! You need to be creating an e-version and posting it online.
Next question is, “How rich in resources and content is your eNewsletter?”
Yes, you want to include what you are doing but also highlight items and events relevant to your industry niche and the consumers you want to reach. These types of resources show your commitment to the industry and the community. It can be your support for a “non-profits walk,” to promoting a movie or live streaming event at another location. Here are some examples that might be a match for your group or give you some ideas:
- July 13, 2015 – Monday
White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) & the Live Streaming Event
The White House Conference on Aging (WHCOA) only happens once every TEN years and it sets Federal aging policy for the next decade. People of all ages are welcome to join the live viewing of the WHCOA. This event will have live streaming online through the White House Live Streaming Service. You can watch from your location or organize your own live streaming event

- And another idea … This is for you to host a screening of the Cyber-Seniors Documentary and invite members from the community. This could be tied into a monthly outreach offering classes on using tablets and smart phones.
Cyber-Seniors: Connecting Generations
The "Cyber-Seniors: Connecting Generations" campaign will be kicking-off a 30-day drive to raise awareness about the digital divide, highlight the benefits of connecting young people to older adults through technology training, and promote the many resources we have available for individuals and organizations to get involved. Throughout the month of September, we will be supporting screening events of "Cyber-Seniors" documentary, along with tech labs for older adults. We hope you will join us and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for you to play a lead role in connecting with community partners to make a positive impact in the lives of young and old. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-844-217-3057.
- Google Calendars

Please people do not have empty calendars. If you don’t have enough events to fill a calendar for the public, then when you do have a community event, just feature it on a web page about “News & Events” from your company.
- And lastly (and we have said this before) be sure to archive your eNewsletter on your website.
