"Need to Get My Attention? Try This!"

Written by Wonder Wyant

Then you might want to pay attention to what I learned this week.

I learned, for aboutrepparttar zillionth time in my life, that I am "average". Oh, how I hate to fit in that category. But, if you are a publisher or writer, you are probably trying to reach Mr. or Ms. Average.

I got lumped into "average" this time because I don't read your ezine. Nope, I really don't.

I get hundreds of ezines a week. And I have a life! I actually feel much better about myself having learned thatrepparttar 124326 average email reader "reads" just as I do.

The average reader just scans your ezine or wonderful article looking for something of interest to him or her.

I know a lot of us put hard work in to what we write so it makes me feel bad that I have this habit. But, consideringrepparttar 124327 volume of emails I receive in a day, it's a matter of self preservation for me.

In order to assuage my guilt trip and do my penance, I wrote this article to tell you what slows MY warp speed scan down to click speed.

1. White space. Lots of white space gives my eyes a chance to refocus again. When I see line after line of type,repparttar 124328 old brain just really seems to shift into high gear. Short sentences. Short paragraphs.

Here's whyrepparttar 124326 decision to include one or not can lead to your website's success or ultimate failure.

1st Time Visitors. Let's face it:repparttar 124327 first time someone comes to your website,repparttar 124328 odds are they're going to be leary and not buy from you right away.

Your ezine will give them multiple incentives to visit your site and make a purchase.

Build an Opt In List. There's a reason why off-line marketers have done direct mailings for years: they work. Collecting email addresses of visitors to your website allows you to compile a list of people who want to hear from you. By signing up for your newsletter, you're given permission to market to these people on a regular basis. Your list will become your most precious marketing commodity.

Establishes Trust. The truth is, your site visitors have no idea if you're an upright business person or some mad hacker in a dark basement out to grab their credit card number.

Well, if you had been publishing a newsletter with helpful accounting tips and tax saving information all along, you would have established yourself as an expert in my mind.

By sharing your knowledge with others, you'll establish yourself as an expert in your field. An ezine helps you to establish credibility in your chosen subject and distinguishes you from others online who may be working in a similar vein.
