REMINDER -- Sign-up Required NLT Oct 31 to Continue Receiving Weekly Biznet Communication.
We are transitioning to a blog which will replace this current email method as our means of providing you with weekly communication and other updates. We plan to complete this transition by the end of October. You must perform a one-time sign-up to begin receiving the blog.
You only have to sign-up once. After doing so, the blog site will automatically send you an email (with content included) everytime there's new Biznet info posted to the blog, including the weekly newsletter.
Go to: http://academybiznetblog.blogspot.com/
1. Enter your email address in "Subscribe via Email" box.
2. Click the "Subscribe" button.
3. A new window pops up - Enter the verification letters in the box.
4. Click "Complete Subscription Request".
5. You'll get an email from "Feedburner Email Subscriptions". Open it & click the link to confirm your subscription.
6. You're done! You'll now get automatic e-mails when the blog is updated.
Thanks to Dave Jackson (USMA '73) for setting up this new method for us.
The main driver for this change is our need to overcome persistent issues with blockage of the weekly email by spam filters or related problems. We will still keep our main Biznet web site, as well as our social media sites (Facebook and LinkedIn). We plan to update the main site with clear links to those social media sites, as well as a link to the new blog. In this way, the Biznet web site will remain the primary entry point for new members, with simple instructions for how to also get plugged into these other Biznet communication tools.
Thanks for supporting the Academybiznet of Colorado!
