SEND WEEKLY ENEWSLETTERS

Did you know that we create weekly enewsletters for you to connect with your customers? 

Providing your customers with inspiring, engaging content in a consistent manner is what makes an enewsletter program valuable. Remind your customers every single week that you are their local source for all things cooking.

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL ENEWSLETTER PROGRAM:

- Offer valuable information: recipes, tips, news of events, class info
- Send at the minimum weekly emails
- Treat your email list like your best friend – no “blasting”
- Look sharp! beautiful images, graphic design, technically good
- Make sure that your email reinforces your expertise


If you already send our twice monthly emails, our "other week" emails look a little different. We feature one recipe with detailed instructions and always include tips, techniques, and a single product feature. Take a look at one example below featuring a stuffed burger bar - then call MaraBeth at 319-290-7733 to get started today! As always, thanks for having us as part of your virtual "back room" team!

Now is the time to prepare for a successful 4th quarter! Are you collecting email addresses at the POS to grow your email list? Instead of asking customers "Do you want to sign up for our enews?" We recommend asking each customer:

"Would you like to receive our recipes, cooking tips, and be the first to learn about new classes?"
 

We received this pro tip from one of our successful clients, Dan Saklad at Whisk Carolina.
