Things have been busy at the TekkBuzz offices, of which I have two. One office is in downtown Grand Rapids, and one office is in my home. At my home office, I can really get a lot of work done. At my physical office, I can interact with people in the local business community, which keeps me from being to isolated. It's a balance I really enjoy.
I've been thinking a lot about the TekkBuzz brand - how far it has come, where it's at and where I want it to go. This blog and brand wouldn't even be here if it wasn't for you, my readers. I appreciate each moment you spend with me, and am excited to pay you back for all of your support you've given me as I build my business.
Because I know you invest a lot of your time with TekkBuzz, like a good company would do with its shareholders, I want to give you some details about where I want to take the brand in the future.
I wouldn’t consider this post and what I’m about to outline below a new direction. It’s not a reaction to anything except the fact that I know I could do even more for you. The words “fine-tuning” might sum it up best, and being more purposeful.
I’d love to hear what you think about where things are headed…
A New Look
As you know, I use Aweber to send these emails to you. And, for the record, Aweber is still my FAVORITE email list manager.
Up until now, my practice has always been to send a very plain-looking email, with no images. The reason I've done this is so that spam filters will allow these emails to be delivered. However, I would like to add a little branding to the page to make it look more professional when you're reading. So I am going to be playing with some very simple graphics in the emails to test how well they are being delivered. If you find these emails are getting caught in your spam filter, do let me know. It will help me evaluate how I'm doing.
Since I know many of you have email lists as well, (You should if you don't already), I will let you know how it goes so you can benefit from the information too.
