Pod Creative’s Covid Response

Pod Creative’s Covid Response To all our amazing clients, friends, and family please stay safe, stay healthy, and stay in touch!  Get in touch via the form below if there is anything we can help with. On November 16th 2020 new BC Health Regulations rolled out in response to the second wave of the pandemic. In response to the new regulations we at Pod Creative are adjusting how we do business to keep our clients, and ourselves, safe.  As of Tuesday, November 17th Pod Creative will no longer hold any in-person meetings, visits, or drop-ins. At this time we expect this will last into the new year. All meetings and in-person visits will be held virtually moving forward. We are asking all clients, friends, and family to contact us before arriving at the office, as we are no longer able to host.  If you need to pick something up or drop something off we can arrange a time when Pieter is available!

Introducing: Pod Creative’s Newsletter!

Introducing: Pod Creative’s Newsletter!

Pod Creative’s Newsletter EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT! Pod Creative practice what we preach with the launch of our newsletter for our clients and subscribers. We recommend to all our clients that they publish monthly newsletters to stay in touch with their own clients. One of the best ways to stay in touch with clients is through a Mailchimp email campaign. Mailchimp is our preferred email marketing platform. Businesses can grow their subscriber list and reach out to their audiences efficiently, and effectively.  Mailchimp newsletters can be created to manually share news, or blog posts from your website via RSS feeds, and much more. If you regularly post content to your website the option of sending a monthly RSS-driven email campaign is a great way to let your subscribers know about your new content! So what is an RSS feed? RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication and it is a specialized format that creates a news feed. Facebook, for example, is a giant RSS feed. It displays the latest updated content from your friends and pages you like, in one area. Another great example of an RSS feed is having your Instagram account display a feed of your photos on your website. If you would like to learn more about RSS feeds please check out this article. Using an RSS feed in Mailchimp allows your clients to view a simplified version of what is new on your website. Let’s say last month you published 6 new blog posts on your website. Through the RSS feed functionality in Mailchimp, you can display those new posts easily in your email...
