I need your imput…

I received an email today…I can’t stop thinking about it…and need some advice…that is what a blog is for right? Interaction….I am in the process of switching my email messaging to Mail Chimp which will allow me to send beautiful emails with pictures and such…it is costly…about $150 per month because I have 9000 addresses on my account already -(yes I know some of you cannot sign up because I am at my limit and this is why)…and would have to enlist for 10,000+…this is a good problem right…lots of people what to know what is happening at PG….then I get this today…

Just got off the phone with you(meaning the store-she did not talk to me) and will now write to get me unsubscribed.  I have made several failed attempts the last week to unsubscribe from all 3 websites:  Lisa’s blog, Primitive Gatherings, and the store.  I’ve not had any problem with any other website and I know I’m doing it right.  I have loved the store, products, and everything Lisa has done.  There are way too many postings and it’s starting to feel like when we have a famous speaker at our guild and she spends too much time pushing her products.  I don’t think Lisa is in this just for the money, but trust me, it’s starting to look like that and turning me off from the store.  So many more stores in SoCal where I live now sell wool and stuff to go with it, we now have several local choices plus many other websites.  Many of my friends are now feeling the same way and from being your biggest supporters we sometimes look elsewhere.  Please just get me off of these 3 sites and consider sending less for those who still are on them.

 

Now here is the issue…I sent out 1 email this month..which was yesterday…3 in May and 1 in April and so on…I have blogged 4 times this month so far…2 have been about our family wedding…that everyone at the last two shows and classes have been asking me if I was going to post about the wedding… now the shop sends out little blog posts about shop stuff…there is a lot going on right now and we want to treat our web customers just as well as our walk-in customers……before today I was thinking I was not posting/emailing enough…then that email showed up…
Please tell my your honest opinions….before I spend 1000’s of dollars a year to send out emails……should I schedule emails and blogs… like once a week?  We are starting to work on my new studio where we will be able to do YouTube videos…is this not necessary either?  Is it all too much? I was thinking I was slacking compared to some quilt shop that I am subscribed to….
well… maybe now I will be able to sleep a little better now that I shared this and will get your info…Please be honest…I know I cannot please everyone all the time but need to know if more of you feel this way.  LB
