#4 Offer incentives: If you want people to forward your newsletter to colleagues or give referrals, offer something in return. Prepare a number of different white papers and offer them at different points in subscription cycle. When someone subscribes to newsletter, give them a white paper. If they forward newsletter, offer another. If that forward results in a subscriber, send a thank you note and, if possible, something of value--be creative. And make sure newsletter promotes your off-line referral programs.
#5 Measure results: Don't forget importance of tracking results of your e-newsletters. You have to know who's opening it and who's not, as well as what they're clicking on. If your readers are a good representation of your customer pool, you'll know what your customers care about--and what holds no interest. Share results with sales team and base subsequent sales initiatives and customer contacts on results.
