In addition… some feedback on the following would be most welcome please! ‘-) —
Since I organised the first Tuttle.101 back in September 2009 I’ve tried to encourage one simple philosophy: ‘Tuttle101 is not owned or run by me @FellowCreative, it is in fact owned by, and exists because of a growing community of people – and this means that the community are free to shape it, use it, or discard it, as they please’.
I’ve done my utmost to keep the Tuttle and Tipple experience(s) very separate from the world’s of sales, marketing, corporate sponsorship and paid-monthly-memberships but since January I must admit that I have given much thought to the introduction of a logo/identity, not because I want to constrain, dictate or monetize, but because I believe that such a visual key may be useful in establishing further community support.
E.g. over the past few months various people have asked me if I could supply them some visual assets for blog posts and articles but I’ve had nothing to give them – I’m convinced there’s only so many photos of people drinking coffee you can handle =) —
With the above in mind, I’d like to introduce two things and I’d love to hear your thoughts please:
an eNewsletter sign-up system (built using CampaignMonitor or MailChimp) to send out a single email notification each month to a Tuttle.101 and Tipple.101 attendee list (1 email per month, with a simple subscribe/unsubscribe feature – it’ll be concise and to the point, with a simple design theme!).
>> NOW AVAILABLE HERE
2) You don’t need to sign-up to attend either but please do try and leave a comment below (with preferably your actual name) so there’s a rough idea who and how many might be in attendance.
3) If you’d like more information about the above or would like to sponsor the coffee, please email Carl at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me directly on: 07929 601737. More information on the ‘now global’ Tuttle Club can be found via the original tuttleclub blog. We hope you like the sound of the above and look forward to seeing you there! =)
