We are very popular!

We have many clients who regularly contact and thank us, even without us contacting them first. They experience terrific feedback from their customers, and they pick up new business they never would have without our newsletter and social media services.

We work with you in mind.

You will be assigned a dedicated Account Manager who will manage the process of setting up your database, email preferences and advise on measures that will improve deliverability and one of our designers will create a personalised newsletter template to match the colourways, look and feel of your branding. The entire process is simple and stress free.

Our various departments work together to ensure that your time is put to best use – focused on your core business rather than pulling together content to communicate with your customers. We do it all so new business is driven to your door.

Each month we create client-branded newsletters – they are professional and relevant. Our clients review and approve the newsletters before we send them direct to their respective customer bases.

We also post three articles to their social media sites – all articles are professionally written. Our clients do not need to lift a finger – it all happens by us in the background.

Some clients prefer to simply gain access to our content – for these clients, we email four articles to them each month.

Extremely satisfied clients

“I received 6 new jobs from my existing customers that I would not have got without Open Resources Email newsletter service! By not keeping in touch with my customers I was leaving money on the table!”
– Alison from Jim’s Mowing

“Thanks so much for arranging my very first newsletter, it looks really good. Soon after it went out, I had an email from a client I haven’t dealt with in a while wanting some more training. So being top of mind really works!”
– Linda from Momentum Biz

“Our monthly newsletters really jog our customers memories and get them calling us up where they wouldn’t have done otherwise.”

“Our clients are really enjoying the newsletters we send out. They look professional and the content is interesting. We even had one client ring to specifically ask that we subscribe her, as her husband was receiving our newsletters and she wanted to get them as well!”
– Maria from Aspire

“Fantastic. Our existing clients have acknowledged the extra communication and we have definitely picked up new clients from the prospect names we added to our customer list. Thank you so much.”
– Lena from Childcare Finance

“Ha ha, it appears that the newsletter also works as a debt collector! I had a customer that hadn’t paid and I was going to call them today and they have just responded to the newsletter to apologise they hadn’t paid yet and were just putting their money though.”
– Requested anonymity
