How to create a successful newsletter: Part 1-Set up a list — 7 Comments

  1. I’m intrigued about how this thread develops. Yeah, I can remember when the mindset was ‘build it and they will come.’ tee hee. Those days are gone. I’m impressed with people who generate a lot of traffic and interest. Like you, I have multiple blogs and it’s been interesting to learn how to get them out there in the world. I’m glad to learn from you.

  2. Cathy, I think you’ve come to my site pretty recently, so why don’t you look back over earlier posts on email marketing? Here’s the link to the posts in the category of email marketing http://changetheworldmarketing.com/category/email-marketing/ Some of the earlier posts specifically focused on how to grow an email list. If you’re interested, I can do a free 1/2-hour consultation on that topic. While my ChangetheWorldMarketing list is fairly new and not large, I’ve grown 2 big lists at my EllenFinkelstein.com site — one is around 7500 and the other is 10800. I’d love to share some techniques with you and see if I can help you move to where you want to be. Just click the Contact link at the top of this page and we can talk.

  3. Hi Ellen, I have an initial auto-responder with my offer (welcome e-mail), but have been thinking of setting up some more auto-responders as I have heard this is an effective way to keep their interest in what you have to offer. Thanks for the “nudge”…I will add this to my “to do” list!

    Ang 🙂

  4. Unfortunately, I’ve let my newsletter/list slide. I’m waiting for my update blog at retirewow.com to get going and then I’m going to start a series of autorepsonders. Thanks, Ellen.

  5. Angela,
    If you can offer several tips, one every few days or each week, and connect them to an offer, especially with a discount, you’ll make some extra money. But I always start with an autoresponder that just welcomes people and tells them how to get the most out of my site.

    Cathy, you probably know this, but a newsletter is different from an autoresponder. A newsletter is an ongoing email — perhaps once per week == where as an autoresponder ends, usually after a few emails — and happens automatically when a person subscribes. That’s why it’s called an autoresponder.
