Written by Dan J. Fry

Way back inrepparttar early 1990's, before spam was even an issue,repparttar 116855 degree of subscriber privacy was not a question. Withrepparttar 116856 new CAN-SPAM law seriously threatening email marketing it is crucial now more than ever to make subscribers, both new and old, well aware of your dedication as a publisher to abide by their wishes.

Federal Law now makes it a felony to engage in email marketing activities that we have all known are simply unethical, making attention to detail in your spam policy highly important. The new law is rather controversial and poses many problems believed to actually increase spam. However, clearly defining your intentions and willingness to fight against spammers, as well as promising never to spam anyone builds trust and credibility. What's even better is that it lends support and legitimacy to email marketing inrepparttar 116857 fight againstrepparttar 116858 new laws.

So, what guidelines should be followed? Although this seems upfront like a no-brainer, it isrepparttar 116859 specific wording that can be tricky.

Marketing Your eZine

Written by Dirk Wagner

The internet marketing “Guru’s” have been saying for years thatrepparttar “money is inrepparttar 116854 list”. In other words, having thousand’s of subscribers to your ezine or newsletter increases your chances of potential sales. It is pretty hard to dispute that quote but how do you go about getting those thousand’s of subscribers to sign up for your ezine?

I use three primary ways to get interested subscribers to sign up for my ezine. Purchased leads and subscription services, ezine directories and article writing.

Purchased Leads/Subscription Services

Purchased leads and subscription services work with you to get subscribers to sign up for your ezine. You agree to purchase x amount of subscribers per month from a subscription service for a fee and they will advertise your ezine for you until they have filledrepparttar 116855 amount of subscribers you have purchased. Most companies will always give you more thanrepparttar 116856 amount you purchased due to bad email addresses, removals, and undelivered emails. Subscription services are ideal for anyone that is first starting out as a way to get quite a few subscribers in a relatively short amount of time. You will also have a choice of single opt-in or double-in subscribers. Double opt-in subscribers actually have to reply to an email to validate that they are interested in your ezine, where single opt-in will get your ezine automatically. There are many subscription services to choose from and I advise trying different ones because every list is different.

EZine Directories

Ezine directories are websites that will allow you to submit your ezine to their website. There are free and paid directories. You submit your url for your ezine and a short ad about your ezine and that is it. Here are few examples of some ezine directories I use. You may also do a search at for more ezine directories.
