*Ad Swaps/Ezine Ads - You want to make sure and have a section for ad swaps. Ad swapping is a great way to get free advertising as well as making new contacts and friends! I have a Free Ezine section which I use for my ad swaps.
To start swapping: http://www.freezineweb.com/ad-swaps1.html http://www.ezinelocater.com/ http://www.internetmarketing-success.com/ad-swaps.htm http://www.topica.com/lists/Ezine-Ad-Swaps
*Thank You Section for Your Readers - Take a small section for your readers to get some free exposure as a "Thank You" for subscribing. Appreciate them as they will appreciate you!
*Resources - Of course you want to provide lots of good and helpful resources. There are lots of places to find resources.
Do a search at your favorite search engine. Mine is http://www.google.com
Join discussion lists - I get numerous resources from email lists. I just save them all in an email resource folder. mailto:email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com
Spam - Yes, spam. I have found lots of resources from spam that I have received. Sometimes sender has some useful information to check out. ( Some spam is just plain junk) You can soon learn to tell junk spam from "might be useful" spam! ;-)
Announcement Lists - Also a good source for resources. mailto:lists_for_all-subscribe@YahooGroups.com mailto:Listsfirstname.lastname@example.org mailto:ListYourAdsemail@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:Mail-Lists-Onlyemail@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:New_List_Announcementemail@example.com
*Tips & Tricks - Provide shortcuts, helpful hints and ideas to save your readers time and money! Ask your subscribers to submit their tips and tricks and use your own as well.
There are so many things you can have in your ezine! You will learn to keep your eyes open for useful items for your ezine. They can pop up anywhere at anytime! Make it a habit to save useful things you come across in folders in your email or on your desktop. Keep them organized so whenever you need them, you can get to them right away.
Ezine publishing is not hard, but you need to be able to organize and provide a quality ezine for your readers to stick with you. Be available to help and support your readers if/when they need you. This will go a long way in strengthening reader/publisher bond!
You will find publishing a quality ezine to be very rewarding, not only financially, but personally and emotionally. Good luck with Your Own Ezine! ;-)
In next part of series we will cover ezine promotion. See you next week!
