Electronic newsletters are utilized by many companies to communicate new and updated information to a large number of people with a simple email message. When utilizing a newsletter, your website should include an easy way for visitors to register (sign-up) to receive the newsletter. The actual newsletter email message you send should always include an "un-register" option for people who do not wish to receive the newsletter any longer. As a Web-JIVE customer, we can help you add this functionality quick while providing tips and guidelines on how and when to use newsletters.
As a Web-JIVE customer, you have many tools and applications at your disposal that can help you keep your site dynamic and current. These tools allow you to advertise upcoming events, discuss issues and news specific to your business, announce specials, and post examples of products and/or work performed so potential customers can see what you offer. This is just a small sampling of the tools available to you! We will cover some of these tools, in depth, in upcoming blogs.
Lets start with blogging. Blogs are becoming one of the most popular tools that companies are utilizing to promote their name and products/services. As a customer of Web-JIVE, you have a basic blogging tool included with your site.
Web-JIVE's customers periodically come to us with questions about technical "lingo" that is discussed on the web and in many publications. Our most recent question revolves around the term "RSS Feed". RSS (Rich Site Summary, or REALLY SIMPLE SYNDICATION as some people define it!) is a format for delivering regularly changing, and automatically updated, web content. News-related sites, weblogs, and other online publishers are examples of sources who syndicate their content as an RSS Feed. This format enables them to share their content with whoever wants it. Job listings, personals and classifieds are a few more examples of information you can get via RSS.
