The "Printmaking Master Classes" videos in the making“Expert:” A Stranger with a Briefcase

An expert recommended that I start building a serious list of followers–people who sign up to receive the odd newsletter and updates of my sites. He said it was easy to implement; just look it up on Google. So I went to our old friend Google where I found mainly:

Information on “full-service” email marketing companies offering a lot of services I didn’t need at prices that would make your nose bleed.

Free apps for creating pages to gather email addresses. All you have to do is fill in a longish form, then hit a magic button and–Shazam!–the app creates a fully-functional page for you. The problem is that the page it created looked like one of thousands out there selling hair restorers and snake-oil remedies for biliousness. You know, all red and yellow, brash and tasteless with lots of text in capital letters. This clearly wouldn’t do.

To Thank You for Your Loyalty: A Free Learning Video

So I decided to invent my own low-tech solution, at least until something better comes along. So, if you would like to be notified whenever this site is updated or I get inspired to send a newsletter, just drop me an email with your name and email address. To thank you for your loyalty I’ll send you back a link where you can access the Printmaking Tips video from my Printmaking Master Classes series of tutorials.

P.S. I promise I won’t sell or share your email address with anybody.
