How would you like to learn my exact blueprint for creating an ezine profits and building real success online by working just a few hours per week running it, building something you can be proud of!
Why Start An Ezine Profits?
Let the truth be told, out of all of the elements of my entire online business for the last 10 years there is one that has consistently put the most money in my pocket, my ezine.
Even though there are probably too many lists to opt in to as it is (especially in the Internet marketing niche). I still have to recommend people start one up and start generating subscribers. As I think for the amount of time you put in to run an online list (very little), the return is well worth it.
But, here is the thing- People online are starting to unsubscribe from many lists lately because of lack of quality. You need to be creating quality.
If you aren’t producing quality content, then subscribers to your list. No matter what topic you are covering, are going to start unsubscribing in droves.
It is not only incredibly important to succeed online to build a list. But it is now more important than ever to start building a real relationship with that list. And nurturing it by offering serious value.
The people who grasp that concept are going to be the ones making a lot of money with email marketing in the future. So far, people have gotten away with low or no content, but that will surely change soon.
What Types Of Ezines Can You Create?
There are many different types and formats that you can run with. And of course there is also scheduling and the choice of selling advertising in your issues as well to think about.
First, you must pick a market. If you have your own product already, then start an ezine in that market to help promote your product and future products. If you do not have a market to publish in yet, don’t worry, you don’t need a product to start an ezine. But you must still pick a market. After that, you just need to set up a publishing schedule of some sort and pick a format.
Here are the setups that I know work!
I suggest you send out an ezine with a 3-5 page article of good information about once or twice per month at the least with once per week being the most.
That is all you need to send. When I was heavily involved in building my list and marketing to it. My formula was to send out one week with a 3-5 page article. And the next week was a solo advertisement for something I wanted to promote.
Then the week after that was another 3-5 page article on something my subscribers wanted to know about, etc
So I just alternated between content and an ad and it was very successful. I have since slacked off with my ezine a bit as I have been involve in other things. But am going back to this same schedule in 2009 as people will be fine with the ads as long as the weeks that have content are informative.
There are three different types of formats that you can use when publishing your ezine that work.
Put the entire ezine in an email
This is the way I have done it the entire time I have published an ezine. I just put the introduction, short ad blurb. And article all in one email and send it out to all of my subscribers. This is the easiest way to do things as it doesn’t require much editing. I also always send it out as text. And not an HTML page as those can still cause problems with some email readers.
Another popular option is put your article in a PDF downloadable file. And then send an email to your list telling them where they can download the file.
This has the added benefit of people being able to save it to their computer. And view it later (more views means more people will click on the links in your ezine which means more traffic for you)
This also has an added benefit of a viral effect. You can put at the bottom (or top if you really want to stress it) of your ezine that they can pass the PDF file to their friends. Or make it downloadable on their web site or blog.
The last option is an HTML page where you put your ezine issue on your web site as a regular HTML page. Then email your subscribers and give them the link to the latest issue.
This has the same benefit as the PDF file where people can refer their friends. Or link to it from their own web site or blog which can generate more subscribers for you.
And it has an additional benefit of being able to use HTML in your ezine. If you wanted to do more interactive content like pictures, flash animations or even video.
