There have recently been significant improvements to the weekly newsletter sent out by both UKClimbing.com and UKHillwalking.com. The newsletters have had a complete layout and style change, whilst increasing interactivity and usability.
Previously, both UKClimbing and UKHillwalking content was displayed. Feeling that this was an obvious way to improve the newsletter function, we have now created two newsletters; one for UKC and one for UKH. This is better for all users, simply highlighting the best content that is relevant to their interests.
In addition to this, the old newsletter displayed everything that had been published on the site during the previous week, creating a very cluttered look. This has now been streamlined to give a 'Best of the Week' theme, where the top three News Items, Articles or Gear Reviews from each site are featured at the top.
This is then followed by a new feature of the newsletter, which highlights the current competitions applicable to each site. Every week, a new competition starts lasting two weeks. This new feature of the newsletter should ensure that you never miss out on the opportunity to win a great prize from one of our many advertisers.
The very popular 'Photo of the Week' is also highlighted within the newsletter so you can always be sure to see the best photos to have been uploaded to the site that week.
