Organising anything can be quite a time intensive, especially when you have a number of things on the go that all require timely communications. I tend to rely a lot on Facebook for organising ad hoc events, but as I move to sharing more information with a wider range of people, through my blog, I’m beginning to think more and more about email marketing and how that might be a new opportunity for me to explore this year.
My plan over this year is for my blog to share more and more lesson plan style stuff – the things that I use with my own children that others might find useful as template for their own home education set up. Anything that can help people save time has to be a good thing, and I know that I certainly find using others’ lesson and idea plans as a basis for our own work, seems to work really well for us.
So, next month will be spent learning a little more about email marketing campaigns and setting up a subscribers list, so I can share more effectively the things that children and I are doing in our own home education set up, and hopefully these will be of use to others looking to teach similar subjects.
I am going to be looking at the advice provided in the ‘preflight checklist’ from Campaign Monitor which I have shared below for others thinking of embarking on this route too. Campaign Monitor have lots of really great advice and information and it’s well worth a visit.
