Keeping your users up to date about your products
« on: May 26, 2007, 07:37:56 am »
Keeping your users up to date about your products

One key when running an online store is keeping your community up to date on the latest products that you are offering or any major updates that have made to a product.

SMF has a built in newsletter option that allows you to reach all your users on your forums.  Located in your Admin section of your forum under News and Newsletters.  The newsletter option allows you to select which member groups to either send a mass email, or mass personal message to their forum account.

Also when you create a topic there is an option to announce a topic which works the same way as the newsletter feature to mass email the member groups that you select to receive the announcement.

When writing your newsletter create an effective subject line since this is what the user will see first in their email client and is a main factor whether the user will open the email message or not. Last for the body of your newsletter/announcement give enough information to get the user interested and give them a link to find out more information.

Not currently you would need to edit the template to display current news

No biggy, in most cases your gonna want the forum news to reflect the store news as well.
