Email
• DO share your list of non-members with the home office
• DO use your Section email alias with a clear indication of who
the sender is and provide a way for recipients to unsubscribe
to comply with CAN SPAM act (We can provide the language
and links!)
• DON’T send from your E-mail client by cc’ing your list, for
privacy sake
© 2013 SMPTE
Email
•
When it comes to copy, less is more
•
We have found that (unfortunately) people skim, rather than read
•
The more you include, the more likely the message will get
lost
•
Proofreading is a good practice
•
Let your message sit for a day and then go back and read it
aloud.
•
Send it to someone else to review – Roberta and Aimée are
happy to assist here
© 2013 SMPTE
Website
• Most of the same holds true for your Section Website as
with email copy
• Less is more
• Proofreading is a good practice
• Update with fresh content frequently
• Use standard fonts and keep it clean
• Drupal 7 Coming Soon!

Social Media
Social media channels are great tools to connect.
It is important to remember that we don’t own our
social media. We do own our website and member
list. The point is to engage with social media that
inspires attendance and membership recruitment.
