Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) October 9, 2008
Profound Communications announces the 2008 Credit Union Newsletter Makeover Contest. The winning credit union will receive a new, custom look for its newsletter designed by Profound Communications, in addition to free quarterly newsletter production for one year, including copywriting and design.*
"The newsletter is a key communication strategy for credit unions, and a critical tool for informing members about new products, services and policies," said Tammy S. Holtzmeier, founder of Profound Communications. "It is crucial to maintain a newsletter that reflects the membership of the credit union so that the publication remains an effective and valued source of information."
According to Holtzmeier, newsletters are one of the most valuable marketing tools used by credit unions. "The newsletter keeps your members informed about your products, services and events and always keeps your name front and center. It shows members they can count on you."
Holtzmeier said a newsletter redesign may be particularly beneficial to credit unions that have experienced a shift in membership and credit unions that have grown, as both circumstances can lead to an out-of-date, out-of-touch image.
