Promoting your Ezine/Newsletter =============================== Offering up an ezine on your Web Site is one of the most powerful marketing techniques on the Web today. If you have a Web Site and aren't putting out a complimentary ezine, you're missing out on a great way to keep in touch with your visitors to your site. When people sign up for your newsletter that is called "opt in"marketing. It is not Spam since they are requesting this Free information from you.They are freely giving you their Email address in exchange for helpful or useful information you will provide to them in the form of an ezine. One tip, never sell the list of email addresses you collect and make sure you state next to your subscription form on your site that "email addresses are held in complete privacy". Spam is bad, and you want to make sure the guests to your Web site feel secure about signing up for your newsletter. The first thing you're probably thinking is that you don't have the first clue as to how to write a newsletter. What will you put in it? How do you get subscribers? Don't worry with all of the free information available on the Net there is plenty of information out there to be used. You'll even find plenty of people who are willing to write articles for you, in exchange for a small byline with a link to their Web site. =================================================== Sponsor Message: !!!

If you post to a few good discussion lists you'll have so much content you won't know where to put it all. Here are a few sites where you will find Free articles. Gary Lockwood's Site BizSuccess/ Offers a list of Free Reports for business owners, or entrepreneurs visit his site at http://www.bizsuccess.com/articles.htm JV Marketeer/ 100's of articles on a variety of subjects, go to http://www.intersuccess.com/imi/articles.htm Another tremendous idea that really works is to contact other ezine owners who may have articles you can publish, or who may want to exchange ads with you. The next part is to gain subscribers you do this by posting the information about your newsletter/ezine to various directories that exist for just this purpose. Make it a point to visit them and register your newsletter. Some will send you more subscribers than others, but you should sign up with as many as possible since every little bit helps. A few of the better ones are: http://www.infobot.net This is a Email publishers resource center http://www.e-zinez.com The Ezine about Ezines.
