To deliver useful content and information to your list, you need 2 things... an Autoresponder and an Ezine. Easily said, right? You know what? It's easier than you think... my 12-year-old daughter could do it. You don't even need to know how to write. There are plenty of resources and articles to help you develop an Ezine. Just by doing a general search on Web for "Ezine Articles”, you will find thousands of articles, free for reprint, in all existing categories (Marketing, Sports, Travel etc.). So, whatever you specialize in or are passionate about, you will be able to find articles to put in your Ezine. The only condition to using these articles, is to include Author's resource box and to leave it intact.
Every online business owner will say, "The gold is in list!", right? I'm sure you've heard it before. But gold doesn't just appear like magic... you've got to work your own magic for it to appear.
