I don`t think there is a "set" answer. A lot of variables such as your audience and your content. I subscribe to many, many newsletters, blog feeds, podcasts, etc - some are every week others once a month. Some would be too much even at every other week but are just right at once a month.
Why not poll your initial subscribers on the launch issue and see what they have to say? Ask them after they see the first issue how often they would like to receive your newsletter. Just an idea.
Rich is right that there is no set answer but personally, I`m a big proponent of once every other month for sales email. I cannot tell you how many I`ve had to dump completely because they were coming far too often.and with more information than I`d ever want to absorb. With once every other month, six times a year. I can just about guarantee that I`ll keep the newsletter and probably even read it! When it comes to newsletters, I believe it`s as it pertains to love.....absense makes the heart grow fonder.
In my last job, we had a newsletter and here are some of the finding that may help your North:
I hope it is helpful. If I remember anything else I will let you know.
Hey Vincent -
I choose the second option for flow - but either way, I think you can simplify the sentence a little bit - e.g. :
"Of the many beautiful flowers with which Mother Nature has graced our planet, roses are perhaps the most admired."
I actually just got done taking a business english class...and one of the things that has become increasingly more obvious in business messages is losing the "extra" words that aren`t necessary. Not to mention...we have created a formal entity out of Mother Nature...so it is used in the form of a formal name...there-by negating the necessity to add in extra words (ie: with which). Soooo...according to my text book...A is actually the "correct" way to say it.
Hope that is helpful!
Vincent, I think this is a unique idea and hope it works for you. I took a moment to reword the last sentence:
