"...one of the best overall mediums to help an organization meet multiple objectives is a regular, well done, newsletter."
VERY Important Note: I do NOT provide "s t o c k" or "c a n n e d" newsletters, ones with complete, pre-written copy and articles and images that you place your name on and mail out. All work is custom work - custom design and writing and images, from A to Z.
my name change to Hawkeye Services, my company name for 11 years was
Newsletter Communications & Management Services Company (that's a
mouthful to say every time you pick up the phone, trust me). Newsletters
were my prime focus for many years, a specialty, and in many senses
this remains central to what I do. What does
this tell you? It is probably safe to say that I have produced more
newsletters than most people have ever even read in their entire lives.
I've produced some excellent newsletters, and I have learned from every
mistake made - the learning curve. I've been down it. Who
benefits from this experience? My clients. A well done newsletter
helps an organization meet multiple objectives and in ways that almost
no other medium can.
likely you are here and reading this because you have an interest in
putting a newsletter to work for you. There are only several key
questions that you have to answer, and only you can answer them.
Why produce a newsletter geared to your customers or members of whatever group?
Why should you work with an outside
writer, designer, and editor for your newsletter?
Why should you choose to work closely with Hawkeye Services for newsletter services?
Why should you
begin a newsletter now?
Those are the beginning questions for which you should seek answers, and some answers should appear here. Please explore these, and feel free to contact me. We're here to help you every step of the way.
I do not write or produce electronic newsletters, or what are called newsletters. Most people call these spam. If you want to do your own electronic newsletter or survey, I recommend Constant Contact. However, the other popular services are probably as good. For information on this or to try it free, click the image at left. I have used Constant Contact, as one example, to produce and distribute electronic and email newsletters to client groups, as well as for surveys and polls, with very mixed results that are mostly negative. However, after extensive study and experience, I don't favor electronic newsletters as they are not anywhere near as effective as print. My opinion, Yes, really. For a full discussion of email newsletters and print newsletters, please discuss with me. I do produce full page and multi-page PDF newsletters, however, but a different thing than what is meant here.

TIP: A newsletter is not a sales flyer. Don't try to make it one. Produce a sales flyer if that is all that you can see for an objective. A newsletter is not a direct solicitation for business or for sales. Not direct.
TIP: DO NOT begin a newsletter to a group and then change your mind and stop after several issues. The negative backlash will hurt you, whether you realize it or not. "Are they in trouble?" Etc. The big benefit is the cumulative result of regular communication over time. Make a commitment or don't do even one - not even one.
TIP: Graphic images and content must match, blend, complement - not clash or fight, not take away from each other, but add to one another, to make it more than it would have been otherwise. That's the point.
TIP: A newsletter is not a newspaper - oddly,
perhaps, there is often very little that is "news" to many readers. It
is not enough to explain. It is not enough to tell or inform. It is not
enough to hope that results will just happen if that is what you do.
Each item in a well-designed newsletter has a purpose, and if these
items or features are not tied and geared closely to objectives and to
purposes, what is the point? What is the payoff in that? Gear features
to payoffs. Like a machine, no unnecessary parts.
