本篇英文電子郵範例主題:『會員招募信函』,內容是網站 (Wealthy Affiliate) 站主文撰寫的廣告信,用詞遣字淺顯易懂,為地道的美式英文,貼文與此並稍加解說供網有參考。這封信件有點長,版主將它分成四個部份解說,免得網友注意力無法集中而錯失許多關鍵的英文重點。

本篇電子郵件解說的第一與第二部份在:『英文電子郵件範例解說 (21 之 1)

(第三部份)

*Evolution.  Yes, we evolve…and evolve often.  Unlike an e-book or one of the guru driven Internet marketing communities out there, we choose to not become stale.  Our information, tools, resources, and networking systems will be updated and improved regularly.

We have already made some major evolutions on the network, efficiency, training, tools and support areas and we are going to continue to do this going forward.

*Technology. As computer science graduates, we have a very strong grasp of what technologies are available and how we can improve efficiency and our overall delivery of training and the community within WA.

WA Platinum have the most technologically advanced Internet marketing training platform on the Internet!

Technology is the backbone for Wealthy Affiliate Platinum and it is gong to be the driving force of any new additions within WA.  We have done an overhaul of the technologies used and WA is much more efficient from a user standpoint and a speed standpoint. 

*Focus.  Our focus is on continually making Wealthy Affiliate better and better.  Not finding new ways to make money off of you.  Creating a better, more versatile and highly improved system.

If you have been around the Internet for any time, you will see the “gurus” sending out email after email promoting not only a new product they have created (it seems like every month), but other people’s products as well.

That is not us.  WA is our focus and our members success is our focus!  You will find that Wealthy Affiliate Platinum is going to blow away anything out there as it has been a focus of ours for the last year (and WA has been our focus for the last 4 years).

*Price.  Guru’s are charging $99/mth for their communities and some are charging upwards of $1000/mth for training in which they don’t even support themselves.  We charge $39/mth.

Is this a bad decision on our part?  It can be, for ONE reason.  People tend to think our service must not be that good because we only charge $39/mth!  The lower the cost, the lower the quality right?  NO! We have invested several million into Wealthy Affiliate over the years and have a dedicated team working on WA Platinum.  We continue making our system better and better…yet we don’t charge more and we won’t be charging more at the time of our launch.

In saying this, we are becoming too cheap.  At some point we will have to raise our price…but the good news for existing members will always remain the same.  You lock into $39/mth for life if you become a member at the $39 price level.  You are definitely safe for the launch as we will not be increasing right away, but Wealthy Affiliate Platinum is a massive upgrade WITHOUT ANY price increases!

◎ evolve = 進化。這裡是指網站服務不斷更新。  

◎ guru-driven Internet marketing communities = Internet marketing communities (that are) driven by gurus 由古魯主導的網路行銷團體 

◎ stale = 過時,陳舊而乏味  

◎ going forward = 未來 (in the future / down the road),其實這兩個字有點多餘。  

◎ As computer science gradutes, we have a very strong grasp of what….

as = 作為 / 這裡可改成 Being computer science gradues,

have a very strong grasp = 對某些事情暸若指掌

◎ improve efficiency and our overall delivery of training and community with WA

◎ be the backbone for = 是… 的骨架 / 基礎 (根基) 

◎ driving force = 趨動力

◎ Our focus is on continually making…. = 我們專注於  (亦可使用以下的說法:We foucus our efforts on…)

◎ email after email = 電子郵件一封又一封的寄
請注意:email 不可加複數
email after email / year after year / from place to place / from country to country 這些都是英文固定的表達方式,網友要切記使用方法。  

◎ blow away sb/sth
1. 擊敗某人
2. 使某人很吃驚   
If you say that you are blown away by something, or if it blows you away, you mean that you are very impressed by it.  –  Google 字典的解釋

◎ as = 這裡是指「因為」

◎ on our part = 這是一種很典型的美式用法。Is it a bad decision on our part? = Did we make a bad decisiion?

◎ In saying this, we are becoming too cheap.
如此說來,我們變得太廉價。”cheap” 在英文中有不好的含義。

◎ You lock in $39 for life. = 你的會費終身都是 39 美元。

(第四部份)

There ya go…8 items that differentiate us.

We strive to become better and we always know that there is room for improvement.  The launch of Wealthy Affiliate Platinum is going to be taking place on September 15th, 2009 at NOON EST.  Please mark this date you on calendar!

We are going to turn the switch and the new Wealthy Affiliate Platinum community is going to be released to the public for the 1st time.  This is going to shock the IM world and is going to be an absolute asset to any level of Internet marketer!

I am going to be contacting you in a couple of days outlining my exact story. Some of you will find this very revealing and some of you are going to be in disbelief.  I am going to outline for you how am I just like you…I just followed through with my dream.  And I am going to tell you all about the strange credit card and my minuscule budget I started out with.

Talk soon,

Kyle
One of the Wealthy Affiliates
