The newsletter is loaded with useful content for their members, including product and book reviews, upcoming events and contents to win free software. We like the positioning and look and feel for the web version and unsubscribe links too. A nice touch.
The newsletter design is also very consistent with their existing site, which is especially important for any new subscribers receiving the email for the first time. Anything that can jog a recipient’s memory (such as the from name, the subject and the look and feel of the content) and remind them about giving you permission is a good thing.
