The recent epidemic of the Equine EHV-1/EHM virus has brought to our attention the importance of quickly reaching people via email to effectively share information regarding the epidemic, show cancellation information, facility quarantines or updates on how to keep your horses safe. We have received emails from Veterinarians, Riding Facilities, Show Managers, Breed Clubs, and Organizations like the American Paint Horse Association and American Horse Council among others, who are helping to spread the news about their particular situation. During this epidemic, the technology of email mass communication via customer, member and contact lists has proven invaluable to get the word out to the horse community-and will hopefully keep horse owners better informed. This situation has had a tremendous impact on our already hard hit equine industry, it has affected all of us and has weighed heavy on our hearts-even more particularly for Silver Buckle Services as we reside and show in states that have affected horses. To help we would like to offer FREE
e-newsletter setup and design for any Veterinarians, Facility owners, Show Managers, Horse Trainers, clubs or organizations who might benefit from utilizing a mass emailing system to report their particular situations or need to share news. Remember, reporting everything is okay is just as important as letting people know there is a problem. Silver Buckle Services would like to help reduce this potential epidemic along with any further repercussions from it.
In the case of an emergency, it is helpful to have lists of contacts handy to broadcast news. Silver Buckle Services will set up a contact database from your existing email lists and will design a template for you to keep your contacts informed. You can have separate lists of emails, for example: a list for boarders, a list of show contacts and a list of clients. You can send to all or just a selection of the lists. This includes a custom template so the emails that your contacts receive are nicely formatted with your logo and branding
The e-newsletter system sends out the emails from a separate server so it doesn't tie up your desktop email account while sending out to 100's of contacts and has reciprocity agreements with other servers (like yahoo, aol, msn, etc) to ensure that your emails are delivered and not relegated to "junk or spam" folders. Naturally all of your contacts would remain confidential and for your use exclusively.
The email database system has a low monthly fee through our preferred email newsletter provider.
Please contact us
if you feel this would be a useful tool for your situation and would like to have us set something up. Also, please feel free to forward this offer to any of your colleagues or friends who you feel may benefit. The offer of FREE set up will be extended to them as well.
