APEX News Signup Form – how it will work

It's on our Facebook page

You know that each time we post something here, we also send you an email alerting you to the new post.

So far, we’ve been doing it manually from our normal email system, but lately it’s getting out of hand. With the number of people we are in touch with, it’s becoming a project for hours to figure out what to send to whom, and who asked not to be sent any news at all.

Best to have a way for you to subscribe and unsubscribe.

For this, there are newsletter systems. We chose MailChimp, which combines totally awesome features with the fact that first 6,000 emails each month is free.

And these are not your grandpa’s emails either! They include the Facebook Like button, post to Twitter and other modern features not seen in lesser emails.

We haven’t yet figured out how to best segment the email news so that you could select to receive just what interests you. So initially, there will be just one category. Feel free to suggest below in the comments how you think we should segment the topics.
