Kingston, NY Online retail store http://morethanashop.com is proud to announce the launch of its weekly financial newsletter. Written by both financial experts and the site’s own customers, the newsletter will offer budget tips and other ways to save money.
President and CEO Jerry McGahan said that the newsletter is part of the company’s mission to transform online shopping into a social experience, one in which people can connect and share advice on the best ways to use a product.
“Smart shoppers know that shopping is more than just gathering the facts about a product and the store's return policy,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity to make friends and network with other like-minded shoppers. A shopping network of friends offers a savings of time, money and convenience.”
McGahan pointed to a recent instance in which a customer had provided an answer, through the newsletter, to one of the company’s own problems.
“One of our customers had gotten a virus attached to her email, and it was sending spam advertisements to all of her friends,” he said. “She e-mailed us her experience and solution so we might include it in our newsletter, not knowing that we were experiencing the same troubles. We estimate that it saved us nearly a day without our computer, and a couple hundred dollars of tech support charges.”
In addition to customer-submitted content, the newsletter will feature articles from writers such as Ric Edelman, author of "The Truth About Money" and Dave Ramsey, the host of a nationally syndicated radio program that discusses financial topics.
Customers who sign up to receive the newsletter will receive a 15 percent membership discount on any purchase. For more information about the site or to sign up, please visit http://www.morethanashop.com/Store/about_us.asp.
