When it comes to marketing, it’s always about getting the word out.
When we’re talking about marketing, it’s not just about getting people to sign up for our newsletter, but about getting them to see what we have to offer. As with any good business, you have to keep your product above the line to stay competitive. So when we’re talking about marketing, its all about that.
The thing that really kept me coming back for more was that we didn’t have to pay for the first month. We paid no subscription fee and we don’t actually have to make any sales over the course of the month.
Well, we’re not the first people to pay for a month of our newsletter. A group of us went through a similar subscription process a year or so ago, and we all paid just for the first month. I think the best part is that we can continue to use the same format every month, and the only thing I can see us having to do is figure out how to make them less time consuming. But yes, the newsletter is a great source of marketing.
It’s also great because of the free advertising. A lot of things in life that you might not think are worthy of advertising are in fact worth it as long as you’re going for that “free” advertising. I know that if I was to buy something on Amazon, I would gladly take the 10% off if I think it’s worth it. It’s the same with the newsletter.
I feel like the newsletter is really good marketing. I know some people read it monthly, and I know some people that would prefer to read it every single day. But I feel like there is a big difference between reading it every day as opposed to not having the time to read it. I agree that it is free advertising, but its important to note that it pays for itself in the long run by gaining traffic. In the long run, it pays by helping you gain SEO.
So, I guess the question you have to ask yourself on a monthly basis is: How much should you read a newsletter? It can either be all you get all the time, or all you get once in awhile. I think having a newsletter once in a while is better than not having one at all. If you are going to do it once a month, then you will have to figure out a schedule that is best for you.
On a similar note, it can be beneficial to create a newsletter that is a bit longer. You can read it when you are not busy and it will make a world of difference in your productivity.
When I was working as a publicist for my own blog, I used to write an email every other week. It was a lot of work, but I could get more done if I did it every other week, and every other week is not long enough for a lot of people.
There are many reasons people join blogs, but one of the biggest is to get more traffic. It can be more effective to do this using email marketing than via a paid subscription.
