Creative Marketing

Do you guys remember my earlier post about e-cards? Well, I’ve been sniffing around and I’ve found this site Egreetings

They have a GAY AND LESBIAN SECTION! How cool is that?

Ok, so how is this creative marketing for a writer? How many of you run e-mail lists for updates? If you have someone’s e-mail you can send them an e-card. So, instead of boring text you can send them a funny card. They have one that simply states “Got Lust?” How perfect is that?

Ok, so you don’t have the time to send everyone an e-card when one bulk mail will do it. If you get a year’s subscription (pretty cheap at $13.99) you can schedule e-cards in advance and all sorts of stuff. So, once you get the e-mail addys in, a few clicks of the mouse and you have a marketing e-mail that’s sure to be noticed. “Got Lust? You will after you read my new release: “Title” by “Publisher” link.”

Isn’t that better than some boring e-mail? You can even personalize the cards. And what does that mean to us? Short excerpts.

Maybe I’m crazy, but I think it’s worth a shot. $13.99 is pretty cheap for a year's worth of e-mailers and they have a 30 day free trial so you can see if it is worth it before plunking down some of that string-marketing-budget.

Here are three of their cards so you can get your creative wheels spinning.

Here's a main link for you incase the other's don't work:
