Newsletter Take Home Assignment


Pick a brand or organization you admire and create an original newsletter that contains news and information that might be of interest to the anticipated target audience. Your newsletter should contain a headline, logo, product image(s), call-to-action button or link and at least three different promotional sections filled with editorial sales copy.

Here is an example of what a template might look like for the completed assignment:
To complete this assignment, you should use Wix's ShoutOut service. This is a free website and newsletter building tool that you can access at the following link:
Note: If you do not already have a Wix account, it will first require you to create a new account. Don't forget your username and password as you'll need it to complete this assignment.

Also, note that the free version of this service limits your ability to create and send only three newsletters per month. Thus, be aware of how often you exit, save and email your newsletter so that you don't exceed your limit on your free account.

To turn in the assignment, students will need to email me the completed newsletter by class on Friday, April 29. Use the "Send Test Email" feature to send me your completed email. In addition, you should print out a copy of your email and bring it to class to turn it in.
