EUROPA THE MUSICAL’S FACEBOOK PAGE IS SET UP – NEWS DELIVERED BY MAIL CHIMP

February 19th, 2011 · No Comments · theater

I’ve tried to avoid third party email providers for the longest time. I figured if you and I were already in touch and corresponding, well it shouldn’t be hard to maintain that relationship. 1800 plus people later I’m finally throwing in the towel, or the banana.

Luckily I heard about mailchimp.com Unlike other email marketing or CRM programs that help you manage your relationships, this one is about as simple as it gets – and it’s free. I’ll also put it this way…. Just as I don’t mind giving Google the extra $5 a year for more space on their picasaweb photo sharing site, I won’t mind paying some extra bucks for more emails to go out the door to people who read them.

As a blogger, it’s part of the whole package that one has to incorporate into their arsenal in order to be more effective with respect to their time management skills.

Which brings me to Europa.

After we found out that Sofia was on the way, I played one more gig with Bad Hotel (an awesome show – you can see a clip here I decided to give my creative pursuits a rest until after the baby was born and things had settled down. 16 months later it’s been quite a ride as you can see by going to Sofia’s site here.

And now I’m feeling restored as I’m writing and involved in a performance again. The home for the new production is http://www.facebook.com/europathemusical which lets us get out all the info about the show quickly and easily and supported on the “other side” (non-social media) by mail chimp.

Two tools that should enable us to easily sell out the 4 shows in April.
