Dear SimplySmartDinnerPlans Friend:
Please read this whole message. I promise it’s NOT a sales pitch…though it might start out sounding like one, lol.
I want to let you know about a major shift that’s happening with our SimplySmartDinnerPlans.
After almost three years of sending folks simple, delicious, healthy dinner recipes for each night of the week, along with itemized grocery shopping lists to make store trips quicker, easier, and more affordable…we’re changing some things up.
We love what we do, and the positive feedback we get from our customers on a weekly basis tells us that we’re on the right track!
We’ve come to realize that, in our current economic times, even a $10/month commitment is a stretch for some folks, and people are becoming more and more leery about having their credit card information stored somewhere online. As Chef Terry, Chef Chris, and I continue to grow our outreach programs to feed the hungry, mentor at-risk youth, and teach young people how to cook healthy and affordably, we’re struggling more and more with the idea of charging people, even this small amount, for a basic life-skill that we passionately believe that everyone needs and deserves.
So…and please don’t think we’ve gone crazy…effectively immediately, the weekly meal plans and shopping lists will be FREE.
Yes, you read that right. No more monthly subscription fees, no credit cards, no PayPal required. The weekly plans and shopping lists, as well as the usual access to blog posts, recipes, and Q&A will be completely free of charge!
Our plan is that, with this new offer, we’ll not only be able to help folks feed their families healthier meals (without adding an additional burden to their budget), but that we’ll attract enough followers and visits to the blog to begin building a lucrative ad income, and attract corporate sponsors to help support our own families, and continuing outreach programs like our MY KITCHEN classes.
This is where YOU come in…
To make this work, we’re going to need YOUR help!
Please take this opportunity to let your friends, family, and co-workers know about who we are, and what we do. If you’re on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or other social media groups, please let them know that they can sign up for SimplySmartDinnerPlans at no cost or risk, effective immediately. I’ve added a very brief form letter, below, that you can copy and personalize, or post as-is, to spread the word, if that helps.
To sign up at no cost (ever), just go to THIS LINK , and choose which menu you would like. You can check out the meal plan options at the Meal Plans tab at the top of the website, as well.
Obviously, you can cancel this no-risk subscription at any time, with one simple email.
What this means…
You will see an occasional ad or banner on the main page of the blog, or imbedded into a post or recipe. You will NOT be receiving 3rd party ads, offers, or SPAM of any kind via email, nor will your contact information EVER be shared with any other company. Any advertisements that you choose to click on, or visit, will be totally up to you, and require your action to do so (for you web-savvies – this means there will never be an auto-redirect to an advertiser’s website…ever.)
Thanks for reading, and please let me know if you have ANY questions. As always, we will be available at any time via Facebook, email or text, to answer any meal plan or cooking questions you might have.
Thank you everyone, we’re very excited about this new phase of SimplySmartDinnerPlans, and we’d love to have YOU be a part of it!
