Step 4-- After you have gotten a subscriber base started it is now time to start distributing your ezine. You can do this manually, use a paid or free listserver, or purchase software to manage your list. I have my ezine at egroups and as of yet haven't had any problems. Before you send your ezine out to your list, always send it to yourself so you can check format and spelling and so on. Always save your back issue, so when you start on your next one you can just remove content to be replaced and keep rest. This will save a lot of time.
Free Listservers: http://www.egroups.com http://www.globelists.com http://www.milomail.com http://www.listbot.com http://www.coollist.com
Paid Listservers: http://www.internetmatrix.com itan/default2.htm http://www.talklist.com/

Step 5-- Keep promoting, providing good content, building relationships with you readers, and putting out a good ezine and your business will grow and you will profit!! This does not happen overnight. You must be determined to succeed and have passion for your work. You will be succeeding just as others around you were and you will no longer suffer from Ezine Envy!!
