When technology fails… teeth grind!
The other day I talked about testing, and said that I was going to keep track of when my ezines went out and compare open rates on different days and different times of day.
Well, I intended to send my ezine out tomorrow morning, but instead, I spent the afternoon and evening tearing my hair out over technology.
The ezine is written, and it’s ready to cut and paste into Constant Contact. But… Constant Contact won’t work, so there it sits. Unsent. Unread. Totally useless.
The worst of it is, I’ve moved ALL of my contacts to their site, so unless they can figure out the problem when I call tomorrow, I’ll be in for a long process of moving those names and getting set up with a different autoresponder system. Since this is the 3rd or 4th time it’s happened, I’m ready for a change – but oh how I dread having to re-do all the steps.
Just changing out all of the opt-in boxes on my websites will take half a day.
If you’re expecting to see my ezine in your in-box – it IS on the way – eventually.
Wish me luck, would you please…
