Currently, the TwoSpoke.com newsletter is published about once a month. We'd like to know if members think that's often enough, or they would like to see it twice a month, or even once a week. Before voting in the poll, keep in mind that going forward, it's going to contain any current coupon codes or promotions, as well as contests/giveaways.

We're also going to try to improve on the content a bit. It's for the members, so we want to make it worth your time to read. A little added value. :)

Your feedback is welcome, good or bad.

How about I bribe some replies out of our members? Vote, and then post a comment. I'll choose a member at random to send some swag to.

I enjoy newsletters. Hot topics, pro cycling news, site news, stuff like that I guess.

More articles would be awesome! You know, fundamentals, trends, health topics, etc.

monthly news letters are fine. Maybe you can add a member spotlight article where you can do a write up about the real person.

I like that idea. Maybe add a new member summary.

People love member spotlights, recipes for some reason and relevant articles. At least those are the traffic trends in our studio newsletter.

Caption contests usually do well too.

Thanks for the input. Anyone else have anything to add? There's no time limit on this poll or thread. Just looking for some feedback.

I suspect integrate can provide some great nutritional information for the newsletter! Member spotlights, industry trends, etc seem like good topics.

The way it's laid out right now, there's the intro, then links to certain threads. We'd prefer to keep that format, as it makes the articles available to everyone. But we could make sure you don't miss the most informative/useful/entertaining threads. And I do like the member spotlight.

Haven't been receiving it. I get all of the e-mails from the threads I subscribe to, but no newsletter. I'll check the filters to make sure I'm not trashing or spaming it. But if not sign me up.

I think once a month is good, but if the content remained valuable I wouldnt mind seeing it every two weeks.

The issue with simply posting articles or threads from this site, is that the people who want to read the newsletters are already reading the new posts daily. The be relevant for more than a monthly newsletter, it would have to offer more than what I read here every day.

Thanks for your input. Keep in mind that the newsletter goes to everyone, not just those actively posting, but members that haven't logged in lately.

Sorry, I didn't see this when it was initially posted. I think once month is fine. Even thought I do look at newsletter when I receive it, I honestly don't get a great deal of value from it. If I had a life and didn't frequent the forum multiple times daily I'd probably get more value from it :) Would be nice if it had some tidbit of info that could only be found there. Maybe a featured member, Maybe just a 'From the editor' column like you see in the front of most magazines. Dunno... something to think about.

Ok, the new newsletter is beginning to take shape:

Spotlight a noteworthy member, offer something not necessarily found on the site, and highlight the past month as well as mention what the future holds. (That means giveaways, usually)

I need to check my settings. I get so much spam I seldom sign up for newsletters but I actually would like to see this one! The ideas below sound fun, member interviews, training articles. Maybe a feature where various members are asked to write am article based upon a topic or comments they've made on the forum.
