Publishing your own email newsletter has probably crossed your mind on many occasions. Most of us have considered it, and yet many still have not done it. There may be several different reasons why, but there are many more reasons why you should.
Reasons Why You Need An Email Newsletter
First, let me dispel any misgivings you may have about publishing your own email newsletter. It’s not nearly as difficult an undertaking as you may think. You don’t have to send it out every week, or even every couple of weeks. You can have a very successful monthly newsletter that the recipients will be pleased with.
You also don’t need a degree in journalism or English to put out a successful email newsletter. While good grammar, spelling and punctuation are important in successfully communicating with your customers, it’s what you’re offering them on the whole that really counts. Quality information and offers are what they’re really looking for.
The most important aspect of having an email newsletter is the benefits it will bring to your business. There’s no denying that a newsletter to your customers will entice them to visit your site more often. But a free email newsletter will make them feel that you truly value them as customers and are rewarding their loyalty. This makes for a very happy, satisfied customer that will repay you with their continued business.
Your email newsletter will not only benefit you by keeping your current customers happy, but if published in the right manner can also send new customers your way. If you ensure that you not only include content that will satisfy your current customers but also offer something for potential new customers it will increase the chances of it being passed along.
For instance, you offer a freebie for discount for new customers in your email newsletter and send it to your current, happy and loyal customers. When they see the offer for new customers there’s a good chance that they’ll pass it along to someone they know.
An Email Newsletter Makes You The Expert
Along with the reasons I’ve already listed, publishing an email newsletter also lends a level of expertise to you. Your customers will view you as someone who really knows the product or service that you’re offering and will help build a trusting relationship between you and them. That can benefit you greatly in competing with other more established businesses.
As you can now see, publishing a newsletter has many benefits as an online marketing tool. And the effort you put forth in publishing your email newsletter will repay you with substantially greater traffic and sales.
