Great points made in this article. I have been sending one monthly email newsletter to my online community via iContact.com for over a year now. It has made a huge difference in community engagement. Thanks for the post.

Great post... it is also helpful for some types of communities to even send a monthly or quarterly community newsletter in the mail. Imagine that. The newsletter can highlight featured blog entries, members, or interesting discussion threads. Each of them then point back to the community for further engagement. Mix it up as they say.
