Let’s Get Started
High-freaking five for subscribing to Hey Stephanie!
Now that you’re here, let’s make sure you get my emails chock-full of social media strategy tips and tricks moving forward.
To Ensure You Are Receiving Your Hey Stephanie Emails Do The Following:
Add the corresponding Hey Stephanie email addresses to your email white list, this gives you the best chance of receiving my updates and not missing any important announcements.
What’s an email whitelist you ask? It’s a list of accepted items or persons in a set…. a list of e-mail addresses or domain names from which an e-mail blocking program will allow messages to be received.
Why is this important?
If your email was the hottest club in town, your whitelist would be equivalent to the guest list. If you’re on the guest list, you’re escorted in. And once my email address is on your whitelist, we can get the party started! If not, there might be a chance that my updates get kicked to the curb (aka Spam folder).
So to make sure that we exchange VIP cards, you can white-list my email now, and avoid having your updates and/or templates interrupted and sucked into an Internet blackhole.
