Sample Newsletter - Text (.txt) Format


What does a Cindy's Hospital Gift Shop Bi-Weekly E-Newsletter advertiser receive?

  • 25 or 50 words of text in each issue in which to present company contact information, slogans, special promotions, and so on.
  • A hyperlink at the end of the ad (not counted in the word count).

What can I put in my ad in Cindy's Hospital Gift Shop Bi-Weekly E-Newsletter?

Here are some ideas:

  • Advertise products or services to gift shop managers and buyers.
  • Contact info -- URLs, email addresses, phone numbers, etc.
  • News about special promotions, discounts, and deals.

Advertising Guidelines

  • Each posting is limited to 25 or 50 words describing the product, service or announcement. If you have more information, your posting can have a hyperlink that readers can click on to go to a Web site where there will be more details. (The link is not included in the word limit.) Count each word in hyphenated words: "Father-in-law" is counted as three words. Phone numbers and URLs are each one word.
  • We will include "http://" in your URL to make it a hyperlink. Various email programs make URLs hyperlinks, but we've found that most of them hyperlink URLs if the http:// is included.
  • Because of the all-text format, and the vagaries of various email programs, we do not use bold, italic, or color. If one's email program doesn't read the commands for these formats, it can really muddy the message by adding a lot of ASCII characters. Yuck! This is not something you or we want.
  • An ad is all one paragraph, not "stacked" in separate lines or paragraphs. The URL is offset at the end for easy clicking.
  • We try to be fair in the placement of the ads. The last ad in the issue becomes the first ad the following week.
