How to Publish Your Own Newsletter
With the Internet as your medium to deliver to your subscribers, you can publish
your own newsletter on a regular basis. If you follow the right strategy, you
don't even have to write the content or even a single word if you wish, and your
subscribers wouldn't mind!
Step 1 Choose a topic
Since you will be writing your own newsletter, it is best that you choose a
topic that is not time sensitive. This will give you a lot of freedom in
selecting your content since you're not going to send out the latest news such
as the latest results on the American Idols, terrorist attacks, and the like.
Examples of non-time sensitive topics are jokes, insults, recipes, short
stories, horoscopes, tips, and ideas.
Another great advantage of choosing a non-time sensitive topic is that you can
work ahead at a time. For example, you can start compiling the content for the
first 30 days in one day.
Step 2 Format the newsletter
Assuming you're going to send out short stories to your subscribers, how many
stories are you going to send daily? Perhaps two or three short stories a day.
More short stories (or other content) give you more spaces for advertisements
but this also means that you will have to work harder in creating or sourcing
for more content.
Step 3 Look for your content
You need to source for content that is copyright and reprint free. Search
engines and article websites are good places to start. You can also source for
content from article base web sites like ezinearticles.com as long as you
include the author bylines.
If you are an expert on the topic, you can choose to write. However, bear in
mind that it can also consume your time and effort in a long run.
You can also receive contributions from your loyal subscribers and publish them
with a mention of their help. They will be happy to help you out.
Step 4 Set up an autoresponder
You need to set up a proper system to deliver your newsletters to your
subscribers. Your autoresponder must have the features that will make your daily
routine of sending out, maintaining your subscriber list and adding new
subscribers as automated as possible.
Step 5 Create your website
While this is optional, the most important component of the "Freebie" Internet
Business Model is your newsletter. However, creating web pages can also open to
other possibilities of making money to you in the process as you can sell
advertising spaces in those pages.
