It's hard to believe this is our 11th issue of News for HR.
We first published News for HR, a monthly online newsletter for human resource professionals, in September of 2008. It was "Baptism by Fire" as this was our first attempt at publishing a newsletter for HR professionals.
Today, we have an opt-in circulation of over 80,000 HR decision makers and prestigious advertisers like SHRM. I'd say the team responsible for this newsletter has done a terrific job.
The content for the newsletter mostly comes from our HR Directory White Papers+ content database that anyone can contribute to if they have a Profile in our HR Buyers Guide. We currently have nearly 3,000 content sources.
Our News for HR editorial team then selects what they believe to be the best content (articles, white papers, podcasts and webcasts) month-to-month (hint - not promotional). If you want your content featured, create a profile in the Directory and load up some content.
Our policy is to select content on merit alone and we don't trade advertising for content inclusion or give clients preferential treatment. We very much separate our marketing and sales from editorial and our editor is not involved in any aspect of our marketing. I have a funny story about this. Last month we featured a white paper written by the president of The Ephor Group titled Ten Common Board Mistakes (a fabulous white paper!). The Ephor Group is a client of HRmarketer and one of their principals emailed me and thanked us for featuring their story (they received hundreds of downloads of the white paper as a result). I forwarded the email to our editor and she responded "who is the Ephor Group?".
We also feature new products and services from HR vendors each month. If you have something new please send to us! There are fewer new products these days so we need sources. And if you are interested in advertising in the newsletter (or renting the email list for your direct marketing campaigns) our sales team would love to chat with you.
