A good newsletter template is not only consisted of a good design, but also good sections to make your newsletter interesting.
I spend a lot of time studying successful newsletters and collected a list of section ideas for my own newsletter. Then I thought list would be helpful to other people who want to start their own newsletter too. So I decided to share it with you. Here they are...

#2. Editor's Notes: This is best place to let your personality shine. Share your personal opinions, views, memories, and feelings here to establish a strong relationship with your readers.
#3. Feature Article: This is main part of your newsletter so focus of quality of content you provide here.
#4. Guest Article: This is an optional section. You may post another informative article by another expert here.
#5. Google AdSense: If you publish an HTML newsletter, you can easily make money from your newsletter by placing AdSense ads in each issue. The best place for ads would be in your article because it will be most read section of your newsletter so you'll get highest click-through rate here.

You can choose most common questions, answer them in an article, and publish it in your future issues. You'll get awesome article ideas this way. It will also make your newsletter interactive which creates loyal readers.
