I was finding it increasingly difficult to find the time to communicate effectively and regularly with my network of past clients, colleagues and customer base and had been thinking of starting a monthly newsletter. As the months went by and I still hadn’t started the newsletter I realised I needed help!
I asked Kim at Merrie Marketing to help set up and manage my newsletter because I had noticed for some time how efficient her own communications are and also how responsive she is to her clients’ needs. It was without a shadow of doubt that I enlisted Kim’s support to not only get me started, but to provide ongoing assistance to keep the newsletter going. It is all too easy to let the months slip by without managing to get round to writing another letter or article, but with Kim’s gentle prompting and technical assistance, the newsletters are now distributed routinely without any hiccups or lapses.
The purpose of the Skills to Go newsletter is to keep in touch with my ever-growing list of contacts, sharing news, views and thoughts on topics that will interest them. It is not a selling tool, but more of a relationship management tool. To that end I have been delighted to receive occasional replies to my newsletter from colleagues and customers from the past, and have also been delighted to receive some enquiries about work, which was unexpected, but welcomed of course!
The newsletter service provided by Merrie Marketing comes with high recommendation from me! It is priced affordably and with Kim’s expert input, has achieved far more than I could have hoped for by trying to manage it all myself.

A R Website Design puts a heavy focus on customer contact, it is something that is a very important part of my business. However, as it has grown, I found I had less time to manage my newsletter task and decided I needed to approach a professional marketing company for assistance.
Kim has been recommended to me on several occasions due to her professionalism and calibre of work. Initial discussions with Kim were extremely encouraging and I had no hesitation in asking Kim to take over the task of managing my newsletters.
Kim and her team provide an excellent service to my business with MerrieMail, from content planning right through to monthly reminders. They are prompt in sending test emails for me to check and also their copy written welcome text is always fit for purpose, ensuring my newsletters are a very high standard of professionalism.
Since Kim has taken over managing my newsletters, I have received many positive comments from my customers, stating my articles are very useful and written to a very high standard.
I have gained business off the back of a newsletter campaign due to their quality. Customers come back commenting that they wanted to discuss the topic further and have since taken A R Website Design up on a few monthly services due to this.
I would not hesitate in recommending Kim and her MerrieMail team; this newsletter management service has been absolutely brilliant! It ensures my customers get regular contact from A R Website Design in an informative and professional manner.

As a creative who works on helping other businesses enhance their brand, I often find it hard to carve out quality time for my own marketing – especially when I am very busy. This is where MerrieMail has come in and saved the day. Within days of commissioning the service, it was all done and our ‘Inspire’ email was ready for launch. I’ve had some amazing feedback from these and it has helped me enhance my brand no end. Thank you Kim and MerrieMail!
