We are delighted to learn more about Berufebilder.de and share their story with all of you.

Berufebilder.de

Berufebilder.de

You probably know that worldwide, there are over 200 million blogs. Berufebilder.de is recognized as one of the 500 most important German blogs according the Blogger Relevance Index and one of the most widely read German Jobblogs according to Wikipedia & DIE ZEIT (the German “Times”). It’s also running the News-Service Best of HR, giving an overview about German HR-Media.

We at Nouri.sh recognize that building Berufebilder.de every day is a challenging task. We wanted to understand and share with you how Nouri.sh email newsletter and marketing adds value to their network and subscribers and helps them grow.

Today we have invited Simone Janson, a renown author, columnist and expert in HR Communications who operates Berufebilder.de for a short interview. Here is how they use Nouri.sh to engage and grow their community.

Q: Simone, please tell us more about Berufebilder.de.
A: It is all about Career, HR, Management, Digital Change and the Future of Work. What makes us stand out is our large community. Not only do we have more than 8.000 daily readers and over 10.000 subscribers to date and growing in different channels, but also a large network of Experts and Partners.

Q: What does “Berufebilder” mean and how it is related to its mission?
A: Translated it would be something like “Vocation Building”. It’s a play on words and it means to create your personal job, your personal vocation or the job of your dreams if you want to call it like this, the job that matches exactly your skills and abilities. In the digital and flexible working world of the future this will be a more and more important competence. Berufebilder.de wants to help meeting this target, giving tips, information and examples of job profiles. In German job profile means Berufsbild, which is quite a similar expression.

Q: Why did you want a newsletter in the first place? 
A: Because it’s easier to keep in touch with our network and it is more comfortable for our clients. Our readers like a weekly overview of all the news and information delivered with a personal approach.

Q: Why did you choose Nouri.sh?
A: Because we found it simple to set up, very convenient for our email marketing program and matching our ongoing and growing newsletter needs. Also the ability to set up different campaigns to segment subscribers and ability to combine different RSS feeds.

Q: How easy was it to get going with Nouri.sh?
A: In the beginning I found it a bit unusual compared to other tools, but once I understood the system, I found it much more easy and quick to use than other systems, especially the layout-design.

Q: Would you recommend us to friends/ colleagues?  
A: Yes, and I will recommend it to all my readers on http://berufebilder.de !

Q: Do you want any new specific features which will help make your Nouri.sh newsletters even better?
A: It would be nice to add customizable auto-responders for new subscribers. Also a double opt-in function.

Q: How much has your web traffic increased thanks to Nouri.sh? Do you see any change in figures already?
A: It’s difficult to say, because I started Nouri.sh together with other marketing channels. However I have already received a lot of positive feedback for the clean design of our eNewsletters powered by Nouri.sh. And last but not least, the number of our subscribers nearly doubled in less than 3 months!

Nouri.sh: Congratulations! How cool is that?!

Q: How do you intend to promote your newsletter to increase subscribers? 
A: I have already set up a subscribers-only area which brings a lot of new subscribers.

Q: Anything else you’d like to share: stats, news, info…
A: I would like to thank Nouri.sh for the great support!

Nouri.sh: Thank you Simone! It is a pleasure having you on board and learning from you!

This post will discuss how to attract subscribers that you do want, and how to identify and get rid of those you don’t.

file000138472429So let’s start off by having a spring clean of existing subscribers. A good way to highlight inactive users is by looking at their open rate and CTR. If you have sent more than 5 newsletters out and none of these have been opened or clicked on, then you know this user is inactive and it is worth unsubscribing them from your newsletter. In order to avoid deleting an excessive number of subscribers, you can send out a final email, highlighting that they have been inactive and informing them they will be removed from the mailing list if they don’t get in touch.

So how do you attract new subscribers? Firstly, ensure your subscribe form is placed logically and visibly on your website. If someone enjoys reading your content, they will want to sign up to the newsletter. If they have to trawl through your pages to find how to do this however, you will probably lose their interest. You should always be able to subscribe from the blog/news section of the site.

Another top tip is posting a subscribe link on your social media pages every so often, and finally using the personalised subscribe link is an extra special touch when you are just targeting one person. This is the kind of thing you can add in to an email for example:

https://app.nouri.sh/campaigns/1234/subscribe?subscriber[email]=email@domain.com

If you need help implementing any of these tips, send over a quick email and we will be in touch!

Nouri.sh is a unique email newsletter solution. You can tailor the content and the look of the newsletter to fit your specific needs. Nouri.sh is a great way for sharing blog posts with your aficionados and is an equally good solution for internal email as you have the option to create multiple campaigns to target specific groups.

Yes, there are other similar products on the market but here are just some of the reasons why we stand out from the crowd.

WordPress Plugin

We have our very own WP plugin that adds a widget to your WP blog, allowing people to subscribe to your Nouri.sh newsletter campaign. You simply choose which campaigns you want to make available to your visitors.

To install, simply download this file, unzip and upload to your plugins directory within WordPress. Once installed you will see a Nouri.sh link in the menu, you simply input your username and password, choose the campaigns to make available (if you have more than one) and away you go!

Subscribe Forms

Getting new subscribers is important to the growth of your campaign. This is true whether you are an eCommerce business looking for an instant conversion, or whether you are just looking to remind someone about your brand. Here at Nouri.sh we have 3 different subscribe forms to help you grow your campaign.

For more detailed information about subscribe forms see here.

-Simple

The simple subscribe form is perfect for adding in to emails or posting on social media sites. Another great place to put this form is in your email signature.

-Customised

You can provide individuals with a customised link which will automatically subscribe them to the campaign when clicked on. Be sure to edit the URL to include their real email address.

-Advanced

The advanced subscribe form is better suited to a webpage or blog page. In fact you can add this form in to any page that you wish by pasting the code in to your newsletter template.

Measurable Success

When you login to view your campaigns you have access to a variety of statistics. You can see how your subscriber base is growing and view metrics such as the open and click-through rates.
You can also measure the success of your newsletter using Google Analytics by editing the newsletter template to enable tracking. This allows you to dig even deeper in to what content your readers find the most relevant.

Nouri.sh is FREE

With Nouri.sh you can subscribe to our free plan and send up to 1,000 emails a month. You can also combine multiple RSS feeds to ensure content is highly relevant to your readers.

Unlike any other similar service out there Nouri.sh does not force you to upgrade to a paid plan after a 15 or 30 day trial. You can test Nouri.sh for free as long as you like with the same great support and customer service as you would expect from the paid plans.

Customisable Nouri.sh Plans

We also offer a selection of paid plans which we can help you to customise to meet your specific needs. The main benefit of signing up to a paid plan is that you can set up multiple campaigns, allowing you to segment your subscribers. This is imperative for creating reader specific content and allows you to tailor make emails for multiple subscriber groups.

Other great features include:

- More emails. You can currently send up to 100,000 emails per month on our Professional plan. If you are looking for an even higher volume please contact us: sales@nouri.sh

- Advanced subscriber management. You have enhanced management features giving you the ability to download/export subscriber lists for easy management

- Nouri.sh is flexible; it can be tailored to suit bloggers, businesses and is even a useful internal eNewsletter solution. Our team is here to ensure users make the most of Nouri.sh, so if there is something you would like that we don’t currently offer then drop us an email to let us know.

In recent weeks we’ve received many requests for Featured Nourish newsletters. This month we were delighted to learn the exciting story of Underground Book Reviews and could not wait to share it with you.

Amy, one of the writers answered a few questions to show how they are using Nourish for their email newsletter. Here is how it has been adding value by engaging their readers:

Why did you want a newsletter in the first place? Why did you choose Nourish?
I started Underground Book Reviews last August with three other writers, hoping to help new authors gain exposure and get credit for their hard work. We offer a review and interview every week, and highlight undiscovered and up-and-coming authors. The website has gained a lot of interest in the writing community, and also appeals to adventurous readers and anyone looking for a good read that isn’t mainstream. As we grew, we began to worry that we would lose subscribers due to too many posts.

I use Feedburner, however it sends our subscribers an email every time we do a blog post. With an average of three posts a week, I worried about cluttering subscribers’ inboxes. I started looking at different possibilities, and found that most of the websites that offered a weekly newsletter required payment.

How easy was it to get going with Nourish?
I didn’t have a problem at all! The layout is user-friendly for my purposes. It worked seamlessly with my Feedburner feed. When I addressed Nourish with questions, they immediately responded and were very helpful. It’s rare to find a free online service with such great customer support.

Would you recommend us to friends/ colleagues?
Absolutely! If I had known about Nourish I would have put it on the blog as soon as I started it.

How much has your web traffic increased thanks to Nourish? Do you see any change in figures already?
Traffic has stayed steady, but our subscribers have increased. We usually gain one or two subscribers a week: in the first week we started with Nourish, we gained ten! Many more switched from our daily email option, to the weekly newsletter through Nourish.

How do you intend to promote your newsletter to increase subscribers?
The blog tends to do a pretty good job of self-promotion. With every new book we review, or author we interview, we gain subscribers. If we continue to produce quality work, we expect the blog to grow on its own. However, we’re greedy for more exposure, so we occasionally do promotions with other websites and offer book-related deals to our subscribers. We recently started a series which we call the “Emerging Author Series” in which we bring an aspiring author to the blog as a guest. After the interview or guest post, we ask our subscribers to vote to read a sample of their work. This gives the writer much-needed exposure, and encourages subscription to our blog.

Anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
I’m completely satisfied with the quality here, and the customer service is outstanding. You won’t be losing me any time soon!

Visit Underground Book Reviews to read more.

Offering nice prizes or inviting subscribers to vote is a fantastic way to engage your audience and identify which topics generate more interest.

With any paid level plan, Nourish allows you to create as many different campaigns as you need and segment your subscribers in a way to deliver the most meaningful content to each group. Nourish campaign statistics and integration with Google Analytics provide you with insights into what works well for your newsletter and which aspects you can improve.

I hope you enjoyed today’s story. Let me know how you use Nourish by emailing me at my[at]Nourish. Sharing examples with others is beneficial for your newsletter.

– Remember, I am here to help you get the best out of your Nourish newsletter. Reach out to me if you have questions or suggestions.

Stay creative!

Nourish is great for your Social Media strategy

Our customers know it, but we thought you may also want to know just how powerful Nourish really is when it comes to engaging an audience.

You know your business best, however one thing we wanted to make sure you have is a great eNewsletter. We have been developing Nourish as the eNewsletter solution that will empower you to differentiate in your Social Media strategy. Your ‘unfair advantage’.

Here is how…

Nearly all news sources on the web use RSS. How many of your readers familiar with RSS? Who knows?… But the good thing is that almost all of them are familiar with email. So this is where comes Nourish helping you to share your content in the format familiar to your readers.

Unlike other tools Nourish only lets you generate emails from an RSS feed. You can use a single or a combination of RSS feeds to streamline valuable and engaging content to your readers. Different feeds can be used for different campaigns, and even different template can be used for each of your newsletters. For example you can communicate with your clients using a different tone to how you communicate with your suppliers.

Nourish is easy to set up and intuitive. It makes managing a large list of subscribers effortless. The opt-out process, as well as subscribing/unsubscribing to individual campaigns is completely automated. Nourish can take the hassle of you managing any number of subscribers, starting from a personal blog to a large company newsletter.

Only those who have run multiple campaigns know how overwhelming that can be. If you aim to target multiple audiences or promote different products, Nourish has a great deal to offer you. It allows you to run multiple campaigns for segmenting your subscribers. Delivering the most relevant content to each group of your readers can boost your open and click through rates and reduce unsubscribers. Plus you have subscribers’ statistics at hand any time to validate the relevancy in the course of your campaigns to their audience.

Nourish allows you to manage multiple campaigns in one single account. Each campaign you create represents a different newsletter. Nice and simple! Unlike any other service Nourish does not limit the number of campaigns you can have.

We know how important it is for B2B organizations for example to segment their subscribers by industry sector. Your campaigns, and the content you deliver with each may vary on (for example) customer demographics, or by set products or services. Or perhaps you may need to have a more ‘independent’ newsletter featuring content from multiple sources.

It’s also easy to create a form for your website to add subscribers to one or more of your campaigns. We have developed a WordPress plugin called Nouri.sh Newsletter that makes this a simple 2 step process.

With the automated scheduling you are sure that your email campaigns go out at regular intervals, without logging in or any manual intervention from your side. Just set and forget!

And my favourite one: your readers like cool custom templates. Your Nourish emails can have your unique branding for a professional look of your campaigns. We can help with that too, just send your brand ideas to: my [at] nouri.sh

Unlike other similar services, Nourish will not force you to upgrade after a trial. Come join us for free today and keep it free as long as you wish!

Plus one: make sure you invite all your friends and contacts too. We’ll make sure they will also get it for free!
