There is something I'd like to talk about... from angle of an ezine publisher.
That's "How to submit articles to an ezine, and get published".
Put yourself in a publisher's shoes. How do you feel if, one day, you receive an article submission email which ends with "if you want remove from this list..."? I did not ask to subscribe... for crying out loud...
~~ Do not add a publisher to any list ~~
If you have an article service list, ask publisher to subscribe. They normally would, if they like your works. If they don't they won't publish your works anyway, why bother adding them to your list.
If you have a large list of publishers and article submission groups to send your articles, use a bulk mailing software such as Groupmail. You can personalize email. And free version can send to up to 100 recipients at a time. That should be enough. Get a free download here... http://eLaguna.neet/groupmail.htm
Now put yourself in a publisher's shoes again, how do you feel when receive -- at your article submission address -- an email addressed to "dear publisher"? This person does not mean to send article to us... just any publisher, right?
~~ Know ezine you are submitting your article to ~~
No need to chit-chat with publishers. No need to go "I love your ezine", etc. But a little of "hello what's up" is nice. Personalize email. Address publishers by name. You should also send kind of article ezine publisher is looking for. If you send an article against solo ads to a publisher who sends more solos than ezine, don't ever expect to get published.
Some publishers accept ONLY article within a certain topic. And they say so in ezine. Please respect rules.
Put yourself in my shoes again (I have several pairs), what if you receive email from a certain author (who happens to be a fast writer) everyday? Do you finally stop reading his emails? I do.
~~ Do not submit too often ~~
I used to receive daily submission from an author. I thought it was funny. There had been too many emails from him that I did not read it anymore. Latest news... poor author was accused by some publishers for spamming! Worst thing was he did not send article to article submission address, but publisher's contact address...
