March 17, 2017: The national media company Constant Contact honored Adventist Today with an All Star Award for its weekly Email edition, AT Update. Constant Contact serves hundreds of thousands of Email publications and the annual award recognizes the most successful 10 percent of these media.
Adventist Today publishes the AT Update newsletter every Friday with a summary of news stories, columns and other articles from the previous week. The editors are Edwin Schwisow and Heather Gutman from the Adventist Today staff with input from the entire journalism team.
The award is based on five factors judged by the independent company which is the largest provider of distribution services for Email publications: (1) the percentage of the people who get the Email who open it and look at it; (2) the number who share the newsletter with other people; (3) the number who sign up for the Email list; (4) the level of engagement among readers; and (5) use of reporting tools.
“We are happy to be recognized by Constant Contact for providing a high-quality service,” said Monte Sahlin, the chief executive officer of Adventist Today. “Our mission is to provide an independent news and information service for Adventists of all kinds, people who grew up in the Adventist faith and those who may have no personal connection but have an interest in the religion.”
Anyone who makes a donation to Adventist Today or any amount is placed on the Email list for the weekly AT Update. Go here to sign up for the weekly email, click here. Or send a request by Email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
