Welcome to Vanessa Collins Online Magazine!
It all started when I was trying to find some inspiration for my newsletter.
One of my goals for 2012 was to build up my mailing list. Any good internet marketer will tell you that you need to, at some point, build up a decent mailing list. So I started doing it. I joined Mail Chimp, placed the email capture stuff on my blog, “Daily Bible Devotional” and my kindle book, “Intensive Faith Therapy.” And then, the unthinkable stared to happen. I started getting sign-ups.
It was “unthinkable” because I had not really thought out the process. What was I going to do once I built this mighty list? I hate spam and I hate that many of the lists that I have signed up for started out good but have now turned into crap. It seems as if every email I get is trying to sell me something. Of course I realize that this is the reason you ultimately build a list. However, I was taught that you should provide value to your prospects. Sure, there will be affiliate links and the like but at the end of the day, the person receiving your email should feel that they have received something of real value.
So, with that in mind, I went on a search to find inspiration for my newsletter. I quickly realized that the amount of material that I wanted to present was way too long for a typical newsletter. I had looked at doing a digital magazine earlier in the year but the $2000 price tag for the training and software was little beyond my reach.
And then I found…MagCloud.
Finally, I was able to find a way to economically produce the magazine that I desired for a reasonable price. All I can say is “praise God.”
So, this is my website for my little newsletter via magazine. This magazine perfectly aligns with my personal vision. It is my desire to use my intellectual and analytical leadership skills to teach, motivate and inspire people to develop an intimacy with God and His Word that allows them to fully understand the dominion that God has given them by which they can live to their fullest possible potential, worship God and serve their fellow man.
