I hate cars and I hate traffic. I work from home, and only ever have to drive one mile to the tennis courts and the grocery store. But Erik Feder writes a good ezine about parking your car, mainly in Manhattan where some parking fees rival apartment rentals in other cities.
Erik is The Blog Squad’s Ideal Client who is being coached live on the air during our weekly radio show Blogging and Beyond. I subscribed to his weekly Parkazine newsletter to review it.
Here are three things I like about Erik’s e-newsletter, the Parkazine:
1.The title: "Holding Parking Spots, funny story #1." This is intriguing.
2. He expresses gratitude to readers and asks for their help in spreading the word. "Thanks to all for the good wishes I’ve received and please keep telling your friends about WhereToFindParking.com so that we can build this up and get to research the parking scene in the other boroughs and surrounding areas as well."
3. He tells readers he needs their help with word of mouth because advertising is expensive. And that he relies on their spreading the word.
“Because advertising is so expensive, we rely on "word of mouth" to help us grow so that we can come out with more Feder Parking Guides and also to continually update the ones that are already released. If you like our service and products and would like to see more of them, please help us create a buzz by talking about us, our website, this e-newsletter (PARKAZINE) and our books/ebooks. Thanks. Feel free to forward this edition of PARKAZINE to anyone you think might benefit from it. Please do not reprint any part of PARKAZINE without our permission.”
