NEWSLETTERS. SAME BUT DIFFERENT.

2015-39

Theoretically, we should talk about poster advertising today. But we take a «Commercial Break» since there is another news I want to share with you.

I have been sending newsletters for quite some time; each one containing one article. The application I use for the newsletters is called CRM easy. As from today my newsletters will be different.

What’s new?

Let us start with what remains the same: You will still receive one newsletter per week; on Tuesday.

But now each newsletter can contain several articles. Some months ago I started publishing a series called Style in Mind that appears on Thursday. I never sent these posts out by newsletters since I feel that this would have been too much.

Why now? Well, the CRM easy system has been completely overhauled which has many advantages for both of us.

Given the system automatically reads my blog’s RSS feed (a technology inherent in any blog) it sends out all the posts I published since the previous e-mail you received; without any intervention. That’s why you have two articles (or parts of them) in the current newsletter.

You still receive a single e-mail (on Tuesday morning MEZ) but you have a choice of what to read. In case you don’t like choices just read everything :-).

Of course you are still entitled to unsubscribe from the newsletter.

CRM easy

At the moment the new CRM easy is in the beta phase and the original system will go online within the next weeks.

I will let you know once it is available for everybody and all features and prices are released. CRM easy will start with German and the English version is to follow soon. Of course the features are the same for both languages.

For questions (English and German) please ask CRM easy’s owner and creator or talk to me.

Next week we will talk on poster advertisement.

Style Made In Saint Louis

2015-25-jord
Today I am writing about a watch. Nothing special for a Swiss; especially not for a hedonist like me that sometimes just has to get away from all that “useful” stuff.

An International Product

The watch I am going to write about is almost everything but Swiss. On its back-side there is a kind of birth certificate that states:

“JORD. Born in Saint Louis”

While born in Saint Louis the watch is a very modern and therefore a very international product, given the Cherry Wood the case and the strap are made of is from China, the movement has been fabricated in Japan and the crystals around the face are from the renowned factory of Swarowksi, which adds Austria to the family tree. I don’t know the origin of the mother pearl but it makes a good addition.

Woodwatches by JORD

Much to my honour I was asked by the social media manager of JORD to write a product review about a model of their collection. My first thought of course was that it was quite ballsy asking a Swiss to write on watches or chocolate since we are so proud of the local products.

When I looked at the watches I decided that it was time to try something new because these time pieces are very original. And they have so many models that it is not so easy to decide which one to choose. Please see for yourself:

Watch Gift Ideas

JORD immediately shipped my preferred model that arrived some days ago and has seen large parts of Switzerland already.

You will tell me it is huge. Yes, it is but at the same time it is – much unlike my handbag – almost weightless which makes it very comfortable to wear.

Since a picture is more than a thousand words I added some illustrations.

Thanks

Thanks to my two friends Silvia and Jasmin who shared the fun with me and did quite some photo shooting in Zurich and Lucerne. It is not so easy to model a watch and even less to take pictures with someone who can hardly stand still for longer than ten seconds.

Also, I thank Paul Saitta to take the time to read through my articles and to contact me for writing one on JORD and sending me such a stylish object.
