AURORA, Colo. — A teacher with Cherry Creek Schools has won the national “Life Changer of the Year” award for the work she has been doing at Rolling Hills Elementary School.
Coleen Thurber beat out more than 620 teachers. She was nominated by several people for the award, including her principal.
“It was beautiful, all the things people wrote on the ‘Life Changer’ website,” Thurber said after she was surprised with the award at a school assembly. “I don’t know, I was shocked. I mean it’s across the country. There are millions of people changing lives. Amazing honor.”
Thurber teaches an Assets program, according to the Life Changer website. She aims to teach students in kindergarten through fifth grade life and character skills so they can become the best person they can be.
Behind every successful email marketing campaign is a list of contacts competitors would love to get their hands on. After all, email marketing creates brand awareness, builds new connections with potential customers, retains relationships with regulars and increases customer loyalty. In the end, email marketing is one of the most effective ways to drive revenue.
The challenge, however, is building a profitable list, particularly if a business is primarily collecting contacts via their website. Signup forms often require savvy design and coding skills or third-party apps that need time and patience to configure — resources that most small businesses lack. But if your website is powered by WordPress, you are in luck.
CakeMail,, Inc., an email marketing company, recently launched a new, simpler way to build a contact list using a WordPress Plugin, enabling businesses to easily capture visitors and streamline contact list creation. Using the plugin, users can quickly begin engaging with customers — no technical skills necessary. The plugin has all the professional email campaign tools businesses need, eliminating the need to beef up marketing resources or hire design and programming experts to implement an extensive email marketing system.
