What is a fashion newsletter? This would be newsletter that is
primarily about fashion or fashion relevant topics.
A newsletter is a regularly
distributed publication generally about one main topic that is of
interest to its subscribers. In the past, news letters were sent
out in paper format by mail to people that wished to receive
them. Since the birth of the internet, more and more newsletters
are being sent electronically. Newsletters delivered electronically
via email are some times referenced as e-Newsletters. However, they
are often simply referenced as newsletters because people now
understand that they are typically sent electronically. The
electronic newsletter has gained rapid acceptance for the same
reasons email in general is gaining popularity over printed
correspondence. Newsletters are published by
associations, religious organizations, societies, clubs, and
businesses. They are also occasionally used for other reasons such
as family correspondence for holidays or special events.
A fashion newsletter can be used by a clothing
company to provide information of interest to their customers or
employees. Some newsletters are created as money-making ventures
and sold directly to subscribers. Sending newsletters to customers
and prospects is a common fashion marketing strategy, which can have
benefits and drawbacks.
Many apparel companies provide a newsletter.
Often times, clothing stores, fashion designers, apparel
wholesalers, etc., will inform people regarding company news by
issuing a newsletter. In fact, Apparel Search even has a
(we use it on rare occasion).
When companies have a website,
they may add a method to join the mailing list some where on their
site. For example, you can find a link to our mailing list at the
bottom of this page (a link that says "newsletter"). If you are
looking for a method to join on a particular website and can not
seem to find it, you should contact the company and ask if they
offer such a service. Some clothing companies do and others do not.
General attributes of fashion newsletters
include news and upcoming events of the related business or
organization, as well as contact information for general inquiries.
designers may use a news letter to inform clients of an
up coming trunk show or fashion event. While a
may wish to inform consumers of an upcoming clothing sale or a new
Newsletters are a great way
keep up to date with the latest fashion, trends, fashion
weeks, special events, lifestyle, etc.
However, some times it is hard to keep up with reading the
newsletters and they can potentially become a burden. Keep in mind
that if you do not enjoy receiving the correspondence, you can ask
to have your e-mail address removed from the list (unsubscribe
link). Most companies provide an link along with the news letter
that gives you the option to cancel at any time. If you can not
find such a link, you can contact the company for assistance with
companies may provide daily newsletters while others are less
frequent. If it matters to you, you may want to ask the company
prior to signing up.
Beware of the
bad apples... As you are probably already aware, the world is not
only filled with good people. Some companies or individuals abuse
the system and send out spam or use newsletter mailing lists for
other reasons. Unfortunately, I do not know of any suggestions to
help you avoid running into the bad people. Personally, I do not
sign up for many newsletters. If I do, it is generally with a large
company that I am already very familiar with their product or
If you are
looking to develop a fashion newsletter for your own business you
can develop your own method or use professionally designed
templates. Many can be created specially for you and your
business. Your logo, company colors, and other specifications you
provide can be used by developers
to create you an exclusively designed template.
Or use an out of the box method. Many software choices can provide
use a service provided by bravenet. You can learn about some of
design and newsletter services.
Many clothing companies provide
fashion newsletters regarding international apparel, textile,
accessories trade events and much
more. They are often
offered for free, but it is possible you will run into a few
companies that charge for this service. Don't worry, you can find
plenty that are free and they will certainly help you stay on top of
the global fashion topics.
By the way,
as discussed fashion events are often listed in a fashion
newsletter. If you have an event that you wish to promote, you
should also add it to a
fashion calendar. Another
good way is to issue a
fashion press release
to inform the stylish people in this world about your events...
