How does a Newsletter fit in there?
This is the kind of newsletter our grandmas use to write, often by hand.
- They have some general information that is shared
- They are deeply addressed to each person. We write TO them personally we don’t attempt to fake it.
- Responses are tracked because we genuinely care about maintaining a relationship
- People who don’t respond, fall off the list, if they are not interested this is good to know
- There is a cycle of reciprocity
It’s perfectly OK and probably very effective to just talk with people in our small group of committed citizens
