Newsletters are crucial to any CrossFit gym for communicating with members and building community. Consistent communication bolsters retention, and it can also be a great tool for earning referrals, setting up events, and getting disengaged members back to the gym!

Thankfully, WODHOPPER makes creating a beautiful newsletter extremely easy. Let’s go over the steps. We will discuss them in greater detail below.

Steps for creating a newsletter in WODHOPPER:

  1. Create the newsletter from a template in a word processor
  2. Export the final version to a PDF
  3. Convert the PDF to a PNG
  4. Create a Template in the Communication Portal
  1. Embed the PNG inline
  2. Attach the PDF
  1. Save the template
  2. Use “Contact Members” to send the email

Check out the video for a step by step walkthrough:

The easiest way to create a beautiful newsletter to send by email is to start by composing it in from a template in a word processor. In the example provided in the video above, we use Mac Pages. But Microsoft Word or similar software works just as well.

After editing the template, we will export it to a PDF, then export the PDF as a PNG. We will use both formats when sending the newsletter to give the readers the two options for how to view the letter.

Once you have both the PDF and PNG versions of the newsletter, log into WODHOPPER and navigate to create the template as follows:

Menu -> Communication Portal -> Templates

Give the template a name, and choose “Email” for the template format. Then add a subject line.

To embed the PNG image inline, you drag the image to the light blue box which says “Add Image Here to Embed.”

When the image finishes uploading, it will be placed into the email editor.

Next, click the paperclip icon on the editor toolbar. That will allow you to attach the PDF.

Save the template and you are ready to send it using the “Contact Members” feature.
