Email Marketing With E Newsletters

Email Marketing With E Newsletters
Email marketing is​ not just all about unsolicited emails with advertisements making outrageous claims .​
Unfortunately the​ abundance of​ spam which inundates Internet users each day has caused many to​ formulate a​ negative opinion about email marketing but savvy Internet marketers who understand how to​ market successful enjoy an​ advantage over the​ competition by turning to​ e-newsletters to​ reach more potential customers .​
This article will discuss e-newsletters and how they can be used effectively as​ part of​ an​ email marketing campaign .​
An e-newsletter is​ very similar to​ newsletters which are printed and distributed via mail or​ other avenues .​
The most significant distance is​ the​ method of​ distribution .​
While traditional newsletters are typically mailed to​ the​ recipients or​ distributed in​ person,​ e-newsletters are distributed exclusively online .​
These e-newsletters may be either emailed in​ the​ body of​ an​ email message or​ may be included as​ a​ link in​ an​ email which directs the​ recipient to​ the​ website for the​ e-newsletter .​
In either case the​ recipient can read the​ e-newsletter while online and print it​ out or​ save it​ to​ their hard drive for future use .​
The contents of​ an​ e-newsletter may vary somewhat drastically depending on​ the​ business the​ e-newsletter is​ promoting,​ the​ purpose of​ the​ e-newsletter and even the​ personal preferences of​ the​ business owner and the​ employees producing the​ e-newsletter .​
However,​ the​ general format for an​ e-newsletter is​ to​ include useful information in​ the​ form of​ full length feature articles or​ shorter pieces offering useful tips .​
The e-newsletter should also contain at​ least some subtle advertising for the​ products and services offered by the​ producer of​ the​ e-newsletter .​
These pieces of​ advertising should not be blatant and should allow readers of​ the​ e-newsletter to​ formulate their own opinions regarding the​ products or​ services.
The content of​ an​ e-newsletter should make up the​ bulk of​ the​ document .​
This may include full length feature articles which provide information for the​ readers .​
It may also include shorter pieces which may offer tips,​ review products or​ offer advice to​ the​ reader .​
The key to​ providing high quality content in​ these e-newsletters is​ to​ have them written by a​ capable writer who is​ knowledgeable about the​ subject matter .​
The writer may have an​ understanding of​ the​ subject matter or​ may simply be able to​ research the​ subject and learn enough to​ write accurate and informative articles on​ the​ topic .​
In either case the​ distributor of​ the​ e-newsletter should carefully review the​ content for both quality and accuracy before publishing the​ e-newsletter.
Distributors of​ e-newsletters should also consider including graphical elements into their e-newsletters .​
This may include product pictures or​ any other relevant graphics which provide meaning to​ the​ text of​ the​ e-newsletter .​
a​ graphic designer can assist you​ with this endeavor by helping you​ to​ create graphics,​ crop them appropriately and place them in​ a​ prime location on​ the​ layout of​ the​ e-newsletter.
Finally,​ distributors of​ e-newsletters should carefully consider their audience before using email for marketing purposes .​
The primary consideration should be whether or​ not the​ target audience is​ likely to​ be receptive to​ marketing in​ the​ form of​ emails or​ an​ e-newsletter .​
If they are likely to​ respond to​ this type of​ marketing it​ is​ worthwhile to​ pursue an​ email marketing campaign .​
However,​ care should be taken to​ ensure the​ emails sent to​ the​ target audience are designed specifically to​ appeal to​ these potential customers .​
This type of​ specialization should include the​ type of​ language used in​ the​ copy,​ the​ layout of​ the​ email or​ e-newsletter and the​ graphics used in​ the​ email or​ e-newsletter .​
Additionally,​ the​ copy should be filed with information which will be useful to​ the​ recipients .​
Another factor to​ consider is​ to​ whom to​ send the​ emails .​
Sending these emails to​ a​ large group of​ recipients who have not requested information from you​ and have no interest in​ your products and services is​ a​ waste of​ time .​
It is​ a​ better idea to​ ask customers and potential customers if​ they are interested in​ receiving more information and having them join an​ email distribution list if​ they wish to​ receive more information .​
Sending your emails to​ this distribution list ensures the​ majority of​ recipients will have an​ interest in​ your products or​ services and are not likely to​ automatically delete your emails as​ spam .​
