Newsletter =================================== Time flies! Yes, time flies doesn't it? It feels like it was yesterday that we at Add Me! decided to launch the Add Me! Newsletter. With the success of our free submission service came a lot of interest from you to learn more about website and business promotion. So we decided that a newsletter was just what was needed and a natural extension of our service. Of course, we had never published a newsletter before, so we were not sure how to get started. But we knew this: unlike many other existing newsletters covering this topic already, we wanted this newsletter to be very informative and high quality. We also wanted it to be objective and honest (I'll explain what I mean by that further down). Finally, we wanted the format of the newsletter to be clear and consistent from one issue to the next; still today, many newsletters are ignoring this aspect and are therefore very difficult to read. Well, this Sunday October 17th is the Add Me! Newsletter's first birthday. We thought this would be a good time to take a small break and look back to see if we actually did create the newsletter we wanted to create. For this we invite you, at the end of this article, to take a minute and send us your feedback by answering a few questions. Some of you may already have seen a very similar questionnaire 4 months ago. ======================================================= Web site owners -- make MORE from your banner ads!

Yes, "honest", that small word that is so often forgotten by writers and publishers. I am always stunned when I read some of the so-called newsletters circulating out there. Many of them are not newsletters; they are just advertisements in disguise. There is nothing bad or wrong with having one or two sponsors in your newsletter, but there is something really wrong when, 1) the reader cannot easily distinguish the ads from the article, or when 2) the article itself contains hidden advertisements, carefully inserted by the author. The publisher can easily correct the first problem, by inserting lines around the ads as a way to clearly separate them from the article. But some publishers include so many ads in their newsletter that they might as well put lines around the article to distinguish it from the ads.
