Success With Newsletters


Newsletters really DO work! With just a small amount of effort on your part they will work for you, even if your marketing budget a small.

Customer orientated newsletters are a wonderful way to market your business when on a budget. You can choose to write them yourself or even hire a ghost writer to do the job for you.

One of the most important elements of a newsletter is the title. Not only the main title itself but also the title of each separate news piece. You want something catchy that will peak your customer’s interest… grab their attention.

Stick to the basics. Provide important, relevant and concise information. While it is acceptable to include such content as humor pieces, trivia or even recipes at times, remember the MAIN purpose of this type of newsletter is to SELL your product or service and to INCREASE your customer base.

Newsletters do not have to be long and involved. They do not have to contain a specific number of pages. In fact, many readers prefer a newsletter that can be digested in a matter of a few minutes as opposed to one that is several pages in length. What is important is to provide a regular and informative piece.

In order to make things easier there are many companies that offer low cost newsletter management packages for businesses of all sizes. They are well worth the money when you consider the time you save when utilizing this service. Depending on the size of your newsletter (number of pages) and the number of subscribers that receive your newsletter each month, you can literally save HOURS of work with one of these packages.

Most of these budget newsletter services offer free trial periods, online tutorials and some form of live help, via either a toll-free number or live online chat option. They do their best to offer “more than the next guy” to ensure you will choose their particular service.

One example of such a service is Benchmark Email (http://www.benchmarkemail.com).
Packages start from as little as $9.95 per month. They offer a 30-day free trial, unlimited subscriber lists, unlimited email layouts and unlimited campaigns. They also offer image hosting which eliminates the need to place newsletter images on your website.

Submit your newsletter information to various no-cost online newsletter directories and you will most certainly notice an increase in subscriber numbers. NOTE: Chances are you won’t receive hundreds of subscribers overnight, but you will attract readers that probably would not have found you otherwise. Let’s face it, every new subscriber is a potential customer and obtaining new customers is what you are striving for!

To get started, list your newsletter on FreeEzines.net (http://www.free-ezines.net/rmanager/user.php). They do require a link back, but that is easily accomplished and well worth the effort. They have a very high search engine ranking, which translates into the possibility of a large number of new subscribers.

The POWER TO SUCCEED is within you! Go forth and write, you will not be disappointed with the results. Will Shaw - Writer and editor of www.clearguides.com - for informative free information online
