KH: How important has publishing an ezine been to your business?
JW: It has been very important in helping me establish relationships with people on Internet. It adds that personal touch.
KH: How long have you been running an ezine and how many subscribers do you have?
JW: About 2 years, and I currently have 3500 subscribers. I had to take a lengthy hiatus due to some personal issues, but main subscriber base stayed with me when I began publication again. I am now in rebuilding phase.
KH: Do you submit your ezine to directories and/or announcement lists and if so how effective has this been in gaining new subscribers to your publication?
JW: I do submit to directories. This has worked quite well for me. I have not had very good response from announcement lists.
KH: Do you write and use your own articles to promote your ezine? How valuable has writing articles been in promoting your ezine?
JW: I do a combination of my own articles and fresh material by other well known and well respected internet business people. Writing my own articles and submitting them to other publications is a tremendous way to add new subscribers and create awareness of Serious Income.
