Presentation Tip: Ten years of the newsletter

Dave Paradi's PowerPoint Blog

Ten years ago, on February 26th 2002, I sent out my first newsletter. According to my records, over 13,500 people have been part of the newsletter list at one time or another (over 8,200 are on the list currently). Today I want to reflect on what I have learned and experienced writing this newsletter for you, my subscribers. As the focus of my business has changed, the content of the newsletter changed. Look for the link at the end of each newsletter.
