First let me thank you for making our success possible. As we begin our second year of publication, we now are distributing this ‘e-magazine’ to at least one executive on nearly every campus in the country. On many campuses, CR80News is received by the auxiliary service director, the business officer, and the card program manager!
Some quick stats:
- We have more than 6,000 subscribers
- We have 500 international readers in more than 25 countries
- More than 15,000 people have visited our web site for up-to-the-minute news
All this is made possible because you read the publication and have come to trust us as an unbiased source for relevant card and campus technology information.
This month you will notice a significant increase in our corporate sponsorship. Because of the success in the past year, a number of key companies have recognized CR80News as a vehicle worth supporting. I believe that they see two reasons to support our efforts. First, many have mentioned the industry-wide benefit that a quality, reliable resource like CR80News provides for a growing market such as ours. Second, of course, they recognize the value that comes from presenting their company’s products and ideals to potential buyers.
We need your help to continue to make both of these reasons a reality. Corporate sponsorship enables us to provide the highest-quality information, but our sponsors need to see results for their investment. Please click on their ads, send them email messages thanking them for their support, let them know you saw them in CR80News and encourage all the vendors associated with your card program to consider sponsoring. Thanks for your help.
