ezines are a great way to stay up to date on hot topics

If you want to do business online you need to publish an ezine. If you have a website you need to establish a newsletter/ezine to go with it. You can't have one without the other. An ezine will allow you to establish a mailing list and obtain the email addresses of your site's visitors and establish a relationship with them. Maybe they won't buy from you the first time they visit your site, but down the road after they get to know and trust you through your ezine, they will.

Your ezine needs to be related to your website. Take my ezine MerlesMission for example the theme is webmaster freebies and that's the kind of thing my ezine includes. It's all about goodies for people who build and run their own sites. If you had a pet store website you might produce an ezine with dog and cat care tips for pet owners.

You need to publish at a minimum of once a month but even better is twice a month. Anymore then that you'll drive people nuts any less they'll forget who you are. Make sure you pick a regular publishing schedule and stick to it. Don't just send it out whenever you feel like it, bad, very bad.

There are many ways to host a list. You can download a script and do it yourself or you can use a third party service to host your list for you. Some you'll find for free and others will cost you monthly. If you're just starting out a free service will work fine but just be aware most of them will put an ad at the top of every one of your ezines that you send out. A small price to pay for free.

Once you get a large enough subscriber base you'll be able to sell ezine ads. Standard is a minimum of 1,000 subscribers before you sell ad space. There is usually a top ad which you can charge a little more for and regular classified ads which are a little cheaper. Some ezines even sell solo ads which are stand alone mailings with no other content, just an ad. If you do solos take my advice and send no more then 2 a month or you'll piss people off and lose a lot of your subscribers.
