CRYSTAL BALL GAZING : Ezine Publishing Predictions You Can Profit From In 2002

Written by Dr.Mani Sivasubramanian

Continued from page 1


Where all other forms of online advertising are losing impact, results from ezine marketing are exploding. If done correctly, an ezine marketing campaign can becomerepparttar most effective - and least expensive - tool for any business. I'm so convinced of this fact that I've even launched a new course called EZINE MARKETING TIPS that delivers a daily tip on intelligent ezine marketing to subscribers by email. More info at


From being vehicles for classified ads and sponsorship messages, ezines will morph into more sophisticated marketing media. Advertorials, product placement ads (like those in Apple's ezine that get me drooling, and then orderingrepparttar 124337 cool new accessories for my Mac that I hadn't ever thought about buying), and withrepparttar 124338 move to Rich Text format,repparttar 124339 web-style multimedia ads will all take ezine advertising to a new plane. Whether or not it will be more productive, we'll have to wait and see.


Some already do. More will in 2002. Creating an ezine from scratch is hard work. Content creation and aggregation services will find a niche to set up and grow. The move to a paid-subscription model will help finance this process.


Overall ezines will be more professionally created, contain useful content and be more valuable to readers. Only serious epublishers will devoterepparttar 124340 time and money required to send out ezines - and they're willing to learn to do it right. Courses like my ebook, EZINE LAUNCH, and wonderful discussion lists on ezine publishing have done their bit to help.

And that's where my crystal ball mists up and gets too cloudy to peer further. But there are two more things that I would like to see happen in 2002. One is as an ezine publisher,repparttar 124341 other as a subscriber.


Selling ad space on ezines is a bugbear for many ezine publishers. Ad networks exist for websites; they represent web advertising space across multiple sites and sell them to large advertisers. It is time someone helps do this for ezines, especiallyrepparttar 124342 smaller ones that are not attractive to advertisers on their own. Ezine Ad Networks are needed badly - NOW !


As a subscriber, I've often wished there was an ezine that would cover all my interest areas and include recent, relevant and essential content about each. Why don't large content portals allow readers to create their own ezine - chooserepparttar 124343 type of content, frequency, interest areas and more? The portal would then deliverrepparttar 124344 custom-made ezine onrepparttar 124345 user's preferred schedule. I'd be willing to pay a fee for this service.

Ok, ok, I'm dreaming.
