I talk to a lot of organizational leaders about their communication challenges. One of the most common things I hear is, "People don't read email!"

You probably already have contact info for some of your members. Great! Hopefully you've already taken that data — whether it's stored in your own database system, excel spreadsheet, Outlook or other email application — and easily imported it into Flocknote.
Here are the most recent (2011-2013) stats on new media usage for Americans. They should be both helpful and motivating in formulating your communications strategy for your organization:
The limited format for things like texting, Facebook and Twitter has required us all to say what we need to say in a much shorter space. Critics say this has resulted in a "dumbed-down" form of communication.
It's easy to understand their sentiment when we see how many dumb things are said through these media. However, in another sense, the critics have it backwards.
A lot of churches and other organizations used to use some kind of "email marketing" tool (Constant Contact is the one most people have heard of). Now they use Flocknote.
Here are some of the reasons why they made the switch to Flocknote:
1. Flocknote is focused on communication, engagement and relationships - not just marketing.
We work with a lot of churches, ministries, groups, teams and other organizations who are trying to connect with their members. They create simple email and text message lists (like we provide here at Flocknote), Facebook fan pages, twitter accounts and websites.
We've made some long-overdue updates to the Flocknote navigation system. And I must say, we are loving them. We hope you are, too.
Because of the way Flocknote developed over time, we had a number of primary navigation buttons spread out in different places on the page. Well, now they are all contained on a single, nice, neat admin navigation bar at the top of each page (if you're an admin for that page).
