"Wait a minute. Before I commit to this 'sign me up' business, what's in it for me?" - you, perhaps, right about now
You ask the hard questions, savvy signer-upper. I respect that.
What's in it for you are the following:
1- An immediate thank-you coupon for 10% off almost* anything you want in the shop.
2- EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS! I set aside never-to-be-seen-anywhere-other-than-in-the-newsletter photos from each set I shoot. You will get to see them.
3- The knowledge that I cry little happy tears whenever someone new signs up for the mailing list.
4- FIRST DIBS on all stuff added to the shop (you see everything 3 days before it's released to the general public) AND advance notice of all sales AND special discounts that only subscribers ever get.
5- Sometimes I write newsletters pre-coffee or post-wine and they are consequently kinda funny.
6- My word that I will never ever ever use your information for anything other than the mailing list.
7- Future other things that I am trying to think of to make the mailing list better.
So that's 6 definite things and who even knows how many potential future things. I think of things all the time. When I figure out how to email pudding, that will also be a definite thing you get.
