EMAILS YOU WILL RECEIVE DEPEND UPON HOW YOU OPTED-IN
If you opted in to receive the Seams Sensational / Sew Like A Pro™ newsletter and blogs. You will receive the following emails:
- 3-6 emails per month pertaining directly to blogs or newsletters.
- Sew Like A Pro™ online sewing school enrollment information
- A big enrollment period happens once a year. Usually in February or March. During this time, I send 5-6 emails a week for 2-3 weeks.
- Sometimes I run a flash sale for SLP™ enrollment.
- At most, this happens twice a year. I send 4-5 emails that week to talk about the sale.
- If I have website issues with extended downtime such as during DDoS attacks, or power outages, I try to send out a few emails to let you all know why you cannot access the https://sewlikeapro.com
- Is there more? Maybe if I create a new product, but nothing I can think of at this moment. Since I am a one-woman show, I only have time to send so many emails a month and still get the rest of the Sew Like A Pro™ work done 🙂
If you opted in requesting to receive information about the Sew Like A Pro™ online sewing courses, you will receive basically the same amount of emails as listed above.
However, as a newcomer, you will likely be given a chance to enroll in the courses as soon as you inquire so you do not have to wait until February.
