It's over--finally. Your pain and the frustration of drumming up employee newsletter articles, content, and ideas is gone.
My name is Dan Feerst. I am an employee newsletter writer, employee assistance professional (EAP), and a licensed clinical social worker who has specialized in workplace issues for over 25 years.
I once produced a monthly employee newsletter for a large county government and school system for many years. It consumed so much of my time that I couldn't get my other work done.
Thinking about content each month; writing the articles; getting them proofed, printed, and distributed and then starting all over again the following month was a drag.
My newsletter production drudgery had to stop before I started hating my job. Well, it did stop. I solved my problem and thousands of companies have benefited from my personal discovery ever since.
I know you are experiencing the same frustrations.
The Best Employee Newsletter Solution, and How It Benefits You
HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED: I decided to write my organization's employee newsletter on my own time and give it to my employer for free. But in return, I would offer it as a solution to work organizations like yours.
Thankfully, my employer agreed.
My boss got what she wanted, and I was able to create a newsletter solution for people like you pulling their hair out producing a company newsletter.
The result. People like yourself could finally get out of what I call "newsletter prison." Starting now, you will never have to dig up content again or be forced to purchase a canned newsletter with content you can't control.
Welcome to FrontLine Employee
FrontLine Employee is e-mailed directly to you on time, ready to distribute in any format you desire, including straight text.
You can title the newsletter or change the copy any way you desire.
It’s e-mailed on time, ready to distribute.
It’s your newsletter with your title.
You can change or alter any content.
You can insert your own articles and pictures.
You can copy and distribute it to all employees.
You can create a PDF and e-mail it internally.
You can put it on a password protected Web site.
There is no “linking” to my web site to access it.
And, you can contribute article ideas to future issues I write.
Today, thousands of companies get FrontLine Employee, with nearly five million employees reading it.
And FrontLine Employee is available in Spanish at a discount.
Here’s How It Works
Each month, FrontLine Employee comes in an e-mail attachment. No downloading or linking to my Web site or me marketing my company with little sneaky messages in your newsletter.
You won’t have my copyright at the bottom of your newsletter. FrontLine Employee is as seamless as it gets.
FrontLine Employee arrives about 7 days before the first of the month. Relax, because you will have plenty of time to distribute it. You also get a hard copy mailed to you if you want it.
Your newsletter is ready to go. If you wish, you can have your own unique nameplate with your logo created by my professional graphics artist. You can even change the name of the newsletter to one you like better.
No Other Newsletter Offers These Unique Features
Your newsletter is sent to you in MS Word, MS Publisher™, or as a PDF. These are the most common and popular software programs on the planet.
Just remember, FrontLine Employee is ready to go. There is nothing you have to do unless you want to add your own content or edit articles to meet your precise needs.
Here’s the key point: Everything — text, graphics, pictures — even the name of the publication — is subject to change by you! It’s two pages, not four. That’s because I discovered the hard way a long time ago that employees don’t read four-page employee newsletters. They don't want them. They're too long.
You need frequency, not quantity to communicate information effectively. That is another secret to helping employees with self-improvement. Quarterly newsletters can’t accomplish change in the same way shorter, more frequent newsletters do.
Of course, monthly is just my suggestion. You can still control frequency with FrontLine Employee and use the content any way you wish. For some subscribers, one subscription lasts them two to three years because they use it quarterly.
I use my experience to generate powerful and meaningful content for your business organization. No trivia, recipes, pulled quotes, long-winded articles, or space-filling cartoons.
You will get short, powerful, meaningful, punchy, easy-to-read articles that help employees, reduce behavioral risk and have a positive effect on morale.
I write with the idea of increasing your employees' morale, reducing their stress, and making their lives at work and home more meaningful.
I even encourage them to get help for personal problems that negatively affect productivity and this increases the use of your organization's employee assistance program (EAP) if you have one.
You and I -- We Team Together
You need to know that I have the qualifications under my belt to produce a great newsletter, but I also have something that you don’t have — time to write it!
Here's a fast summary of who I am:
► I am a licensed mental health professional with both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in social work. I specialized in employee assistance programs in both degrees. My first job was with a major federal government EAP, and many large and small EAPs following that.
► My career has spanned 25 years, and I am still consulting, offering advice even to nationally known employee assistance program experts.
I am the sole author of the work-life newsletter of the U.S. Congress given to its 12,000 employees. Ditto with the U.S. Small Business Administration, and the U.S. Air Force Academy.
I didn’t go to these work organizations, by the way. They came to me. You can take that as a guarantee that I will work hard for you too.
