“Tim, Are You Okay?”
Not a week goes by that I don’t get an email like the one I got from Joe overnight. Here’s what he sent:
Dear Tim, I've been a follower of yours for some time but I haven't received any of your newsletters for a few weeks now. I hope all is well with you. Joe - Syracuse, NY
I'm always touched by these emails because you care about me. Thanks so much for that.
I’ve been sending out a newsletter regularly - sometimes more than one a week - for years. Why did Joe, and possibly you, stop getting them? The reasons are many.
If you want to make sure my newsletter ends up in your Inbox each week, please do the following:
- Whitelist [email protected] - add me to your email CONTACTS
- Open each issue - don’t look at it in the PREVIEW screen
- CLICK at least one, possibly TWO, links in each newsletter
- If using Gmail or similar software, check the All Mail and Promotions area. Create a FILTER named _ATB and magic will happen!
The first three things will communicate to your incoming invisible email postmaster that I’m a friend, not SPAM, that you like what is in the email because you OPEN IT, and you REALLY like the email newsletter because you CLICK LINKS in it.
It’s that simple. Just do those three things each week and you’ll be set.

My Daughter’s New Stairs
A little over two years ago, my daughter and son-in-law started to build their dream home on Mt. Desert Island, Maine. They finally moved in at the end of July.
There’s a tale to tell about the saga, but not today. I want you to watch a video and take a look at their amazing modern and sleek staircase. I suggested they use LJ Smith stair parts and fortunately they listened to Dad!
CLICK or TAP HERE to see the DRAMATIC after photo and to watch a video I recorded about how you can have eye-popping stairs, railings, newel posts, balusters, and volutes in your home! All from LJ Smith!
