Greetings YEI members

To our new YEI members

Welcome to the YEI community!  We have many new YEI members.  We hope you enjoy and find benefit in the YEI website and this newsletter content.  Please read the item at the end of this Editor’s column titled Get the most out of the You’ve Earned It platform – in order to get the maximum benefit from the YEI website, newsletter and Facebook page. 

YEI business mailer

Our readers may not be aware that we send out a regular communication to our advertisers (corporate advertisers and business listers).  This communication updates our advertisers on what is happening at YEI, and advises them of any specials on offer.  There are close to 1000 advertisers (current and prospective) that we contact via this mailer.    If any of our readers who own businesses would like to be featured on the YEI platform, and/or would like to advertise B2B in this mailer, please do get in contact

The dark side of internet dating, and dating in general

In the last YEI newsletter, we published an article titled “Stay Safe with Online Dating”.  We had a lot of reaction to this article – both positive and negative.   A YEI reader sent us a heartfelt request to publish the story of her sister’s experience in online dating, and dating in general.  A very much edited version of the story can be seen here.    Please note that this story does reflect the dark side of internet dating, and dating in general.

Ensure receipt of the YEI free fortnightly Newsletter

Don’t forget to add info@youve-earned-it.co.za (the YEI email address) to your address book in order to ensure receipt of the YEI free fortnightly newsletter.   Servers often see YEI as spam due to references in the newsletter to discounts, great deals, and the like.
