Did you know that you can use Wakelet to create newsletters? Check out our guide on how to use Wakelet for newsletters
Why should you create a newsletter?
Email newsletters may have been around for years but in a world of WhatsApp groups, endless text chains, and confusing message boards, newsletters are still one of the best ways to keep people informed. Whether you send them daily, weekly or monthly, a newsletter that’s fun, visually engaging and packed with valuable information is always going to be a welcome sight in anyone’s inbox.
Newsletters can also help to build a community. They can help schools to connect with parents, publishers talk to their audience, musicians engage with their fans, and businesses interact with their clients.
If you’re a teacher, then you already know how important it is to have regular contact with parents and the school community at large. Create a visual, fun, and engaging newsletter and you’ll be able to build a feeling of trust and understanding that can only benefit the school. You could even include resources and tasks that can help parents reinforce the lessons that their children have learned at school.
