We’re excited to announce that we’re partnering with Fund 17 to bring an Introduction to Email Marketing Workshop from 6 – 8 pm on Thursday, January 24th on Bayou Road (2533 Columbus St). This event is free and open to the public! Both organizations will be on site to help educate small business owners on the benefits of email marketing. Our very own VP, Serah Ridolfo, and Marketing Manager, Allison Schmidt, will lead the workshop!

One of our core values is ongoing education and bringing our marketing expertise to small business owners all around New Orleans. Partnering with Fund 17 was a natural fit for both of us! Read more about it in this article from Biz New Orleans!

Fund 17 is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to combat opportunity inequality in the seventeen wards of New Orleans by providing micro-entrepreneurs financial and educational tools for self-empowerment. This workshop is to help to educate local business owners and entrepreneurs on email marketing: what it is, why it’s important and how to use it for their business.


We love email marketing. Seriously, we’re all about it! We love email marketing so much because it can be so powerful for businesses of all shapes and sizes. But, when used incorrectly, email marketing can annoy your customers, waste your time, and make you lose out on sales. Participants in this workshop will learn how to successfully use email marketing to grab the eyes of their customers, leading to increased brand trust and increased sales.

The workshop, entitled Email Marketing 101, will teach participants about utilizing MailChimp for email marketing. Get Online NOLA will lead the workshop, beginning with email marketing basics. Then we will move into collecting emails, moving customers through the sales process with email, and ending with email campaign best practices. Participants should bring a laptop to get hands-on experience during the workshop. The workshop will end in an open discussion, plus one-on-one workshop time with the expert.

RSVP for the workshop on Facebook Or Eventbrite!
