Back in September I wrote that I was working on many new projects.
Well I still am. Some of them involving this website – the Dynamics User Group – some of them my company – the Dynamics Experts and some of them a number of new initiatives.
Right now my plan is that the user group will continue as it is today. There will not be any major increase in the number of banner ads. Instead I hope that we will be able to find more sponsors. Companies who think that the website is doing an important job and who would like to get their name and logo affiliated with the biggest and most popular independent Microsoft Dynamics community website (according to both Alexa.com and Compete.com).
The newsletters will be a more important part. This has allowed us to get in contact with members we otherwise have not seen for a very long time. They enjoy reading the newsletter, but in general only visits the sites whenever they have a problem.
If you haven’t signed up for our newsletters, then please visit Newsletter Subscription Page. Here you can see the different newsletter and sign up to them.
But I’m desperately in need of someone who can help me sell job ads, sponsorships and banner ads for the website and the newsletters. You are going to get paid very good, if I’m able to find the right person. I think that it will be a good part time/freelance job, but I’m really interested in finding someone who can see a future with 10-12 months where he/she would be able to have it as a full-time job, mostly working from home. If you think this might be you, or if you know someone, then please contact me ASAP!
On the more commercial front then I hope soon to be able to announce the Dynamics Freelancers initiative that have been writing about before. The freelancing recruiting network created to work for the freelancer, not against the freelancers, as I feel most agencies do today. It will have local partners in different countries who will handle local needs and requirements and we already have partners in Denmark, the Netherlands and in the UK. But we would really like to hear from interested partners in the US and Australia. Later we will add more regions.
This was just a short update.
If you have some great idea’s for me regarding what the future blog posts should be about, then please contact me. Thanks.
Sorry about the confusion. But the DUG newsletter is only sent out once per month. And I've been too busy to to make one for November yet. It should go out tomorrow or maybe delayed on Monday....
I have not yet received a news letter, I have signed up three times.
3 or 4 of the main newsletters has been sent out since June. The minor newsletters have so far only been send out once or twice. The idea is that they will be very related towards what's going on on the website, but the main onces will be unique content.
I see you have changed/updated the newsleter(s) - when it was first introduced, I signed up, received a couple, then they stopped arriving. I thought its because no new one was published, but looks like you have changed something, added more newsletters & my previous subscription is no longer existing.
This may also apply to others, who subscribed as soon as such possibility was introduced... Do I (and others) need to re-subscribe? Then it must be somehow emphasized in a place everybody will notice...
Depending on which newsletter you registered for. But they are send out about once per month.
Well I've just registered, when I will receive the first one ?
No the newsletters will have their own and unique content, but sometimes it will be about news stories similar to what has been talked about on the website. It might just have a different angle. So if you're not receiving or reading the newsletters, then you might miss out on some important stories! ;)
Ooops sorry, I've misunderstood the purpose of the newsletter, I did read too quickly,
I thought the newsletter was going to be a mere weekly or monthly compilation of certain hot threads ...
Why a Newsletter when RSS feeds exists ?
Thank you for reporting. I just found out that some settings where missing after we moved the server.
Subcription page doesn't seem to be working. Got a nice big error
