This looks interesting. If I wasn't already teaching on Wednesday mornings, I'd spring for this.

Success Strategies for Arts E-mail Marketing:
A Hands-on Workshop
Wednesday, October 18
9:00am - 12:00pm
This hands-on workshop will give those already engaged in e-mail marketing the knowledge and tools to improve their results, through a series of case studies and active participation with their colleagues during the session.
We will focus on the four areas that are most important to arts e-marketers:
E-mail makeover: How to design a successful e-mail. We’ll look at specific e-mail designs and participants will create and evaluate their colleagues' campaigns.
E-mail list growth: We’ll explore the most effective list building techniques and hear case studies of what has been successful for other organizations.
List segmentation and targeting: We’ll talk about why sending the same e-mail to everyone on your list doesn’t work nearly as well as when you segment your list. You'll hear about segmenting based on user-defined categories, as well as based on response rate targeting.
Editorial Plan: We'll look at what an editorial plan looks like and how to put one in place.
The session will end with a discussion of the next generation of e-marketing - including such things as RSS, podcasting, blogs and video streaming for arts organizations.
