Boreal Access now offers simplified e-newsletter (newsletter sent by email) software allowing you to include photos and special characters.

Those of you who understand the importance of personal and regular contact with your customers know newsletters are one of the best ways to maintain that contact.

How it Works

Begin by collecting email addresses of your customers, and retaining that list in a user-friendly database on the Boreal server.  (Or, transfer your existing database to the Boreal Access server.)  Boreal members each have their own secure area on the server to add or remove email addresses.

A simple form, which looks like MS Word, is used to create your newsletter.  Add text, photos, and web links to promote your establishment, special offers, seasonal discounts, new packages, snow and trail conditions, and other important information.

(Note for web-page savvy folks:  Your newsletter arrives in your customers' email appearing much like a web page, that is, it is formatted in HTML.  If you know HTML, you have the option of updating the HTML code generated by the software, or putting in your own.)

Select your guest email list, and the newsletter is on its way to your customers.

 Email Address Requirements

Email addresses are collected through a form on your web site.  Visitors to your web site voluntarily sign up to receive your newsletter.  The email addresses automatically enter a database on the Boreal Access server, set up just for your business.

Visitors completing the form may select certain types of information as well, enhancing target marketing on your part.  For example, some recipients may wish to receive summer-only newsletter information, and some winter-only.

Boreal Access has a strict anti-spamming policy.  All recipients of email newsletters must have voluntarily signed up to receive the newsletters, and must be able to easily unsubscribe (opt-out) from newsletters.  Links are automatically added to the end of your newsletter with instructions for unsubscribing.
