Some reasons to consider
a professional writer and coordinator.
Newsletter writing can be a time-consuming project, particularly if you are an inexperienced writer. In addition to developing the copy, consider how much time it will take to gather information, conduct interviews, make revisions and proof copy. The biggest pitfall in newsletter development is the schedule. Careful monitoring is required get a production out on deadline. An employee who is swamped with the requirements of his or her regular job, may not have time to take on the additional responsibilities of a newsletter. If the in-house person does not have the time, or doesn’t enjoy the process, then you can expect your newsletter to be routinely late.
