RV News Exclusive: RV News Launches Daily Newsletter

Mon Oct 3, 2016

RV News magazine is proud to announce it is launching a daily newsletter that will be emailed to industry decision makers who want to be “in-the-know” on what is happening everyday in the RV industry.

The e-newsletter will feature all headlines that have been posted on its website in the last 24 hours. Subscribers can quickly scan the daily headlines to be informed of the day’s latest news. If a particular headline is of interest, a simple click takes them to the RV News website: www.rvnews.com to read the entire story.

The e-newsletter will be deployed each day at 1 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.

“We are really excited about this new service to the RV industry,” says Dana Nelsen, owner of DRN Media Inc., RV News’ parent company. “The newsletter will feature exclusive stories that can’t be found anywhere else. Additionally, it will contain press releases, white papers, videos and blogs.

"RV News readers and advertisers have been demanding an emailed daily news wrap since I started the company in November of 2015. Initially, I felt that other news organizations had this fairly well covered but readers have told me that our coverage is more complete and if we emailed them it would help keep them better informed.”

The newsletter will feature all of the RV industry news articles, videos, blogs and RV News exclusive stories created that day, as well as a section of bigger news stories that have run in recent days. Stories will cover newly released RV products, new hirings, new locations, partnerships, acquisitions, financial statements, trade show previews, features and more.

RV News averages from 7 to 15 new stories on the RV industry per day and the website is being updated daily with additional content, photos, videos and more.

Advertising positions are being sold for both the website and new e-newsletter. Quantity is extremely limited. The e-newsletter will feature two advertisers each day in its outbound message. For more information on advertising contact Dana Nelsen at 720-353-4003 or dana@rvnews.com.

To submit press releases or news tips that will be featured in the e-newsletter, contact RV News’ online editor, Scott Hansen at news@rvnews.com.

RV News is the oldest trade magazine in the industry, founded by RV/MH Hall of Famer Dan Holt. The magazine just recently passed the 40-year mark; however, in December, the magazine changed ownership and Publisher Dana Nelsen re-established the magazine’s online presence and print publication.
