Who are we?
IT News for You produces email newsletters and email campaigns for IT resellers. We handle the design of your email template and the ongoing creation of each e-newsletter issue or email campaign, so you don’t have to! We are a hands-on operation that does highly customized work: when you work with us, you work with a person one-on-one.
IT News is US-based, a division of OXEN Technology, and we work with IT resellers throughout North America.
What do we do?
We provide email design by creating your email template and producing each e-newsletter issue or email campaign that you want to send. Our technology-focused content database gives you a source of articles that you can rely on 100% or simply use to supplement your own original content.
Once you are set up with your mailing list and your email distribution tool, IT News can make your newsletter production process as easy as you picking your articles—and then we do the rest to make your e-newsletter or email campaign a reality.
Our Newsletter Plans
Our email newsletter plans not only cover your template design, layout, and sending your emails, but they also give you access to our content database! For each e-newsletter issue, you can choose from hundreds of technology-related articles, taking the pain out of gathering content for your e-newsletter—whether you use our content exclusively or to supplement your own articles.
- All plans require you to provide a method of sending your e-newsletters and an additional one-time template fee—$150 for a standard or responsive template.
- We do not currently provide content only. Due to our licensing agreements with many content providers, we must be involved in the production of your newsletter or email blasts.

How does it work?
How does our process work? You will work one-on-one with a member of our production team. Your dedicated newsletter designer will work with you on all aspects of your newsletter.
1. CHOOSE YOUR PLAN AND SIGNUP!
The first step is to sign up and choose frequency of your e-newsletters (Bi-Weekly, Monthly, Bi-Monthly, or Quarterly). As soon as we get your signup details, we’ll send you a Welcome Letter with further instructions.
2. GET YOUR TEMPLATE
After signing up, the first task your designer will help you with is creating your template. Based on your company’s branding, your designer will design and code a reusable email template for you. No pre-fab templates here! You can choose a standard template or a responsive template and we’ll customize it for you.
3. GET YOUR CONTENT
You’ll get access to our content database. You can choose articles from the database for your e-newsletter issues; your e-newsletter can rely solely on the database content, or it can supplement the content you create yourself. If you don’t have a plan that includes content access, then you will need to send your content in to your newsletter designer.
4. GET YOUR DRAFT
Your newsletter designer will take the content you choose or submit, and will create an e-newsletter draft. They’ll send the link to you so you can view it and send feedback or corrections.
Once you’ve approved your e-newsletter, you can send it yourself by uploading or importing it into the email service or tool of your choice. If you’re using an online service such as MailChimp or Constant Contact, your newsletter designer can do this for you if given access. And then you’re done!
Please know that it is your responsibility to choose/provide the content for your company e-newsletter. We will do our best to remind you and help you with this process by sending email reminders to a contact that you designate.
