Written by Denise Ryder, Marketing Coach


I am sure by now you have heard it said or read it somewhere thatrepparttar most valuable asset we have as eBusiness owner's is a LIST.

I totally agree that a list isrepparttar 144121 most valuable asset we have. I also believe inrepparttar 144122 fact that having "targeted" lists provides with you a stronger email marketing foundation.

What we are doing overrepparttar 144123 next 12 months is providing you with eMail Marketing Systems which you can put into place enabling you to building a central list and more targeted ones.

Why systems??

Look at some ofrepparttar 144124 more successful businesses today and you will see that they have in place systems. These make runningrepparttar 144125 business easier and of course ensures that anyone (employees) know exactly what to do and when. Take that concept torepparttar 144126 on-line arena and you can use systems that may take a bit to set up, but once they are they run on autopilot (the best ones, huh!!). Then of course there are those that need a bit more of your energy, but there are ways to make those easy as well.

The 4th system we are going to talk about today is one of "those" systems which needs a bit more involvement from you on a regular basis. BUT...the good news is thatrepparttar 144127 energy and time is not in vain. There are pay-offs ;o)

The "system" I am referring to is a Newsletter.

Ok, ok, I can hear a few groans and a few of you are even sucking in your breath atrepparttar 144128 mere thought of having to do a newsletter. For some you were even hoping that you could get by without even having to incorporate one into your email marketing plan.

I feel for you, I really do :o(

When you think about allrepparttar 144129 time it takes to put a newsletter together it does seem like a daunting task. However, there are ways around that.

First, let's go over WHY you should incorporate a newsletter.

1. A newsletter serves as your main list. The one that people can subscribe to after they have taken your 7-Day eCourse, or read your eBook or eReport. Once people have been through your eCourse they need to go somewhere...some will drop off and not subscribe, however, a newsletter in place gives themrepparttar 144130 option and gives you yet another opportunity to build trust and rapport with them.

2. A newsletter enables you to build relationships. You know that people are more apt to follow recommendations and buy from those they know, like and trust. Through corresponding via a newsletter on a regular basis, that trust is being strengthened. You are building a relationship with your subscribers.

3. A newsletter enables YOU to build a reputation. The quality ofrepparttar 144131 newsletter you send out and of courserepparttar 144132 number you send out on a regular basis, builds a reputation for you and your eBusiness. For a good, solid reputation then of course that means thatrepparttar 144133 information you provide is relative to your market and is something that they can readily use.

4. A newsletter enables you to leverage. With a newsletter in place you openrepparttar 144134 door for a great many business alliances with others. A list enables you to take advantage of Joint Ventures and leverage your marketing efforts through other lists.

Ok, four solid reasons forrepparttar 144135 "WHY" you need a newsletter. Now, I mentioned above that a newsletter doesn't have to be as labour intensive. BUT...you MUST REMEMBER thatrepparttar 144136 key to a good, solid newsletter that builds uponrepparttar 144137 4 reasons above is...

GOOD AND USEFUL CONTENT...

If your content isn't useful...if it is just fluff then you will find that people will unsubscribe and find a newsletter that will give them what they are looking for.

The good news is that content is EVERYWHERE!! There are article databases that can provide you withrepparttar 144138 content, just make sure that you are not using an article that everyone else and their dog (hmm, smart dog) is using. The best way aroundrepparttar 144139 saturation issue is to write your own articles...I know, I know, one step at a time ;o)

Email Marketing Systems to Help Boost Exposure and Profits...System #5 - The Missing Link Between Article Writing and Email Marketing

Written by Denise Ryder, Marketing Coach


It's no surprise that today we are going to talk about writing articles and how to tie them into email marketing. So, settle in and let's get at it!

Article writing is NOT a new tactic. With 300,000+ newsletters in cyberland covering a wide range of topics, it should come as no surprise what all publishers are looking for...GOOD QUALITY CONTENT.

Hey, it's no secret that we are all trying to get EXPOSURE... right? Keep in mind that that ONE ARTICLE can reach more people than you could ever possibly imagine. You aren't limiting yourself to just one newsletter...you can send that very article to several publishers within your TARGET MARKET and reach tens of thousands of people all atrepparttar same time. The great thing about using articles isrepparttar 144120 fact that it doesn't cost you a cent... just takes a little time in putting your knowledge to paper...oh, I mean to disk ;o)

There are many things you can do with articles that you have written, but we are focusing on using articles as a "system" for email marketing. So, here is what you can do.

The PRIMO advertising spot in all ofrepparttar 144121 newsletter isrepparttar 144122 Resource Box that comes atrepparttar 144123 end of your article. I mean it stands to reason that once someone reads a good, quality article they want to see whorepparttar 144124 heck wrote it...right??

Well, that is where they go to find out...AND...this is where your email marketing system comes into play. A resource box has your name and a web site address, in addition to that you have a few more lines to entice a person to to take some form of "action" which you control of course.

What do I mean...you ask??

Ummm, ok, that "action" could be a few lines enticingrepparttar 144125 reader to:

1. sign up for an eCourse that you have 2. sign up for your newsletter

3. download your eBook

4. download your eReport

Those arerepparttar 144126 more obvious "actions" you could entice a reader of your article to take. All ofrepparttar 144127 above of course give yourepparttar 144128 opportunity to get people onto your "list" and enables you to follow up later using email marketing.

Now, ifrepparttar 144129 people go to sign up for your report then BINGO you have them in your email marketing system..however there is a way to pretty much guarantee that they will take that "action."

Here is what you do...

Write your article so that it is in two parts. The first part ofrepparttar 144130 article isrepparttar 144131 one that is published inrepparttar 144132 newsletter. The second part ofrepparttar 144133 article is available to them via autoresponder...see where I am going with this??
