Need a Newsletter? FlashIssue is Awesome

Over the past week I've been working on improving both communications and education in my company so I felt an internal newsletter that could quickly be generated would fit the bill.

One of the tools I've discovered is FlashIssue, a very easy to use add-in that works with GMail, MailChimp or simply read as a URL in the browser. It works because there's a clipper tool that plugs into your Google Chrome browser, and then stores the clips you've made of articles or web site.

When you're ready to assemble the newsletter, what you do is simply add a graphical header, type in your title, then drag and drop the stories or items you've clipped. Once you've done that you can add in some text boxes, type in your own views and perspectives on the items you've laid into the newsletter and voila, you have a newsletter that ready to go.

Right now I'm sending out the newsletter via Gmail, but as I get ready to gear up the distribution beyond the company team, I'll be switching to MailChimp as it will provide list management, and opt-in, opt out management.

this would be great if they linked with Evernote. That was the notes stay in Evernote and you could set a window...like the previous week...to capture the notes and create the newsletter.
