How Do You Distribute Them?

I use a service called AWeber - and it’srepparttar 150376 only one I can recommend. I have tried others but nobody comes close to what AWeber provides. AWeber also hates spammers so they do everything they can to make sure that their clients get their email through.

AWeber hosts my mailing list and sends my email newsletter out. Each week I uploadrepparttar 150377 HTML code to my list and AWeber sendsrepparttar 150378 mail out. You can buy software that can do this but once your list grows over 100 people it is far better to use a hosted solution to distribute your email.

AWeber also checks my newsletter to make sure that I haven’t inadvertently used phrases that get my email kicked torepparttar 150379 spam filter.

Text and HTML formats

Unfortunately, HTML email is used very heavily by spammers so HTML only newsletters come with a pretty hefty spam score no matter whatrepparttar 150380 content is. I find that if I load a text message along with my HTML message my email scores much lower. The text email also then is received by people who choose to disable HTML email.

I then also make it a habit of uploading my newsletter to a newsletter archive on my web site. This way those who only getrepparttar 150381 text version can visitrepparttar 150382 web site and my web site benefits from a new page of content.

Here are some turn-key solutions that might may sense for you. Constant Contact - Cooler Email - Double Click- Exact Target - Email Labs -
