The publishers of the weekly RVtravel.com newsletter, now in its 11th year, will debut a new daily newsletter in mid-November.
According to a press release, the Monday through Friday online publication, RV Daily Tips, will include concise, helpful advice to RVers. RVtravel.com publisher Chuck Woodbury will oversee operations with long-time contributor Russ De Maris as editor.
“We are still refining the format, but our plan now is for one brief lead article each issue with advice that will enhance an RVer’s experience, whether it’s about lifestyle, maintenance, safety, towing or anything else about RVing,” said Woodbury. “In addition, we’ll embed one 60- to 90-second video tip in each issue from an RV expert. We already have two month’s worth ready to go that we videotaped at the recent FMCA rally in Indianapolis and we’ll be adding new ones this week at the RV show in Hershey.
“We’re looking for other video submissions from people in the RV industry who have something of value to say to our readers,” he added. “There’s no charge for appearing in the videos unless we have to travel to record them. I expect that each one, depending on its topic, will eventually receive 10,000 to 50,000 views through its archives on several websites and blogs, so it would be good exposure for a company.”
The RVtravel.com YouTube channel, where the videos will be hosted, has garnered 1.7 million views to date.
The free newsletter will debut with about 6,000 daily subscribers. “We’ve solicited sign ups in our RVtravel.com newsletter and Facebook page for a couple of months now,” said Woodbury. “But once the new newsletter is underway we’ll push harder and I expect it to grow fast.”
