Your business can have a very long and successful journey once you are over that initial hurdle. So much so you can even start to enjoyrepparttar 117732 ride.

The point of all this is that while it might be scary inrepparttar 117733 beginning it does get easier. And like everything else in liferepparttar 117734 more you grow in experiencerepparttar 117735 more confident you become. BUT none of it will happen until you get started.

Ezine Publishing As A Business

Written by Elena Fawkner


Continued from page 1

Before you publish your first issue, write a few articles about your chosen subject and submit them, together with a resource box that includes a way for people to subscribe to your new ezine. This is just to drum up interest so that you actually have a few subscribers to send your first issue to.

What do I mean by "submitting" your articles? There are many ezine publishers and webmasters looking for fresh, quality content for their ezines and web sites that they don't want to have to create for themselves.

In response to this demand, a number of services and web sites have sprung up to collect content contributions from people like you and make it available to people like them.

Here's a list of article submission points to get you started:

=> Announcement Lists

Yahoo Groups (submit fromrepparttar Yahoo Groups website at http://groups.yahoo.com/ - you'll need to subscribe to these groups first):
