Example of a Internal Newsletter User Generated Internal Newsletter
Easy to read Internal Newsletter is designed to be scanned, with ‘read more’ links connecting people to the intranet, web, or even documents on the network for more information. You can also get reports on how many people are reading your newsletter and which articles. This will help you tailor your content to suit your readers.
Easy to respond Embedded email links let readers reply to authors directly. Depending on the number of responses, they may decide to take the topic further, calling a discussion group, summarizing comments in the next edition of the internal newsletter or setting up an Employee Blog or Forum for more debate.
Up-to-date information Internal Newsletter allows you to produce a staff magazine very quickly with limited resource. Printed staff magazines, or laborious html magazines that you have to pull together yourself, can be out of date before employees even read them.
More effective than an intranet notice board Internal Newsletter provides you with more editorial control plus you can push the published newsletter out to targeted computers. Some people won’t use notice boards as they are a 'destination' and are 'out of sight, out of mind'.
Target to different audiences You can target your internal newsletter to different groups. For example, individual departments may want their own version.
No HTML formatting required Internal Newsletter is automatically produced without any need to wrestle with html formatting.
Build engagement Internal Newsletter helps you get information across in an engaging, visual way and, by encouraging staff to become involved in creating the newsletter, this builds a sense of community and engagement.
Internal Newsletter as a Communications Channel Example
Bypass email Internal Newsletter is not delivered by email but in a way which is more likely to attract cut-through. Each time you publish the internal newsletter, a ticker bar appears and scrolls three times at the bottom of staff member ’s computer screens. Staff can click-to-read there and then, or go to their message history to read the latest issue at their leisure. They are able to access the magazine via hyperlink from a screensaver, desktop alert or the intranet.
'Safe' social media channel Your company culture and demographic makeup may mean that some senior managers are reluctant to use tools like employee blogs and forums. They may fear losing control or fueling dissent. Under these circumstances, Internal Newsletter can be a great alternative. It lets you distribute ‘safe discussion’ directly to employee ’s computer screens.
