Lightbulb How often can I send mass mails to my forum users ?

I wonder how often can I send mass mails to my forum users ?

I would not want to become annoying for them.
But I do not want them to forget me

Make sure you put in your rules somewhere that upon signing up to the forum, you will recieve some forum email's. Let them know up front about this.

This is your decision on the emails that you send out. You could send out 1 montly newsletter and pack that full of information instead of a weekly newsletter email 3 or 4 emails in a month.

If you do the 1 email a month, you could just post updated news and other stuff on your forums Facebook Fanpage. This might be better then emailing your members several times a month and risk losing them as a active member. At least with the fanpage, they can just unlike it but still be loyal in posting on the forum.

This just my 2 cents and perhaps you can get some idea's from my opinion.

Hey Pamela,

Some of it depends upon what you have to say and how interesting it's going to be to them. In general though I'd say once a month at a minimum and no more than once a week.

For a forum I think bi-weekly might work well.

P.S. You know if you use a service like constant contact you'd be able to tell what your open rate is. You could start with once a month, work towards bi weekly, and then weekly . . . stopping when you start to see your open rate drop.

This is a wise thing, snakeair. I never thought of that.
Thank you.

Oh, no, imbilly. It is too much even for me.

Here is the mindset of the forum users:

"Go ahead and send as many emails as you want - I will just unsubscribe."

You are going to end up losing a lot of forum members if you spam their email inboxes. I usually recommend keeping to a "monthly" newsletter type of email.
