5 Things To Consider
When Publishing A Newsletter

Providing a newsletter for your opt-in list subscribers provides many benefits in terms of driving traffic to your site as well as boosting the sales and profits of your site and company. This is a marketing ploy that will not create a large dent in your marketing budget and will not require many man-hours in developing this project.

With a newsy e-zine, you can inform the public about your company and products as well as services. You can keep them posted and updated about what’s going on with your company as well as many of your promotions and offerings. This gives you the opportunity to keep reminding your subscribers that you are still here and are willing to offer them good deals and services.

This is also any excellent opportunity to impress your subscribers with your expertise and knowledge about the topic at hand and the many benefits you can offer them. When you impress people, they will become potential customers and another great thing is that they can recommend you to their friends, colleagues and family. All of them could very well be your customers in the future.

If you aren't publishing an informational e-mail for your site and products, then you may have to consider doing some research and become well informed on how to publish one. It is not as easy as it seems but if and when you get the right idea and process, it’ll be smooth sailing from there on. Be sure to take the time to learn what you need to learn to do this right to attract subscribers to both your publication and traffic to your site.

Here are five things to consider for your newsletter.

1) Make sure your content pertains to and is closely associated with your business or the theme of your site.

Don’t stray too far from what could be regarded as your field of expertise. You have started a site and your theme for your site will always be something you are knowledgeable about. For example, if you have a site that sells auto car parts, your information must contain articles or content and/or photos that pertain to cars, auto parts and such. You may also include content about your company and your staff.

Remember that visitors of a certain site are there because they are interested in what the site has to offer. If they sign up for an opt-in list or for your newsletter, this means that they want to be updated for that certain theme or subject. Be sure that your publication is providing for the need of the subscriber as well as their interests.

2) Ensure that you have well written, information riddled and content rich articles.

Your articles will be the body of your newsletter and they should be able to excite your readers as well as provide information. Articles must be well written and checked for errors such as spelling and grammatical errors to look professional and believable. The trust of your clients and your publication is at stake here.

3) Fact-check your articles.

Make sure that you provide true facts and figures so your reputation as an expert and your knowledge in that field is not questioned. If you lose the trust of your subscribers this may persuade them to unsubscribe. This will cost you many potential sales.

4) Provide fresh and new articles that can provide new information to your subscribers.

If you publish stale and old news, there’s a tendency that people in general and your subscribers already have read and known about them. This again will cause many to lose interest in your newsletter and won’t get to read what is most important, your ads. They may not open or read any of your succeeding mailings because they will perceive your only intention in writing your newsletter is to get them to make a purchase.

5) Never use copyrighted materials such
as photos and articles.

This is outright plagiarism; you can get into a lot of trouble for this. You could lose your business and get sued over copyright infringement. If you don’t have the time to write your own articles, there are many willing and able professional article writers that can do it for you for a reasonable fee. All your investment in writing and publishing articles will be well worth it when you see your list build up and your traffic steadily increasing.
