Some of things you should include in your ezine:
Informative articles Helpful links Useful tips and ideas Product reviews Original material Free resources
Some places to find quality content:
Surf web for quality resource links and products. http://www.excite.com ( search for whatever kind of content you are looking for)
Write your own articles or run an editorial in each issue. Have some content that is not found in any other ezine. This is a good place to add your personality.
Subscribe to a few discussion lists. These networking lists are a great source of information and resources. You can also join in discussions and promote your business. mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org mailto:email@example.com
I find these two groups invaluable for resources, networking and promotion.
Watch your email for new site announcements, new products, affiliate programs or great new ezines.
The supply of quality content on Internet is endless. When you find a good bit of content, copy and paste it into your ezine template immediately. This will save time when you are finishing your current issue.
Always deliver your ezine on time (unless out of your control), in which case you send an apology with explanation. Making and keeping a schedule will confirm your readers trust in you. This will say a lot about your business in general.
Make sure there are no careless mistakes in your ezine such as spelling or grammar. An ezine can be loaded with good content, but if it looks like a child put it together it doesn't say much for your business. Make it look professional while adding your own personal touch and you will be a hit.
Of course, we will all make mistakes sometimes, but avoid this as much as possible for a professional, quality ezine.
