With all of the push these days to publish an E-Zine as an online
marketer, deciding whether to accept articles and paid
advertising is becoming nothing more than a quick second thought.
As E-Zines are increasingly turning into mere tools to generating
sales, people are turning more to pre-written content. Are E-
Zines loosing their aire of freshness as an outlet for true

I personally subscribe to numerous E-Zines just to see what
others are writing about. Most simply circulate the same articles
written by a chosen few without writing any original content
themselves. Coming up with clean fresh ideas truly takes work,
but don't you owe it to your subscribers?

Times are busy and life is rushing by. People simply do not have
the time to sit and read every article, commentary, or
advertisement that passes their eyes. As the commercial
marketplace becomes increasingly saturated with hype after hype,
people are developing a keen sense about worthwhile articles.
Focus on delivering high value content and not using your E-Zine
strictly as a marketing tool.

I like to think of my weekly E-Zine issue as a get together with
your closest friends over coffee, wine, a beer, or whatever they
wish to entertain. Would you repeat the identical conversation
week after week?

When just starting out with your E-Zine, your relationship with
your subscribers is analogous to a first date. It is the same for
authors who publish in other E-Zines or for inclusion of outside
ads in your publication. Subscribers just don't know anything
about you.

Why not build a relationship with your subscribers? They came to
you wanting information. Don't simply give them "cut and paste".
Give them you. Add freshness. Add your insight. Your humor. Your
perspective. If you honestly talk to them they will listen. Your
friends would. Wouldn't they?

I don't pretend for one minute that building this relationship
will be easy, only fruitful. There are a few guidelines that will
maximize the strength of our subcriber relationship.

(1) Be honest and let it come across in your writing sent to
your subscribers.

(2) Send your online publication on a periodic basis at the
same time and on the same day. This is the begining of trust.
People want to know when to expect receiving correspondence
from you.

(3) Give weekly updates as to what they can expect in the
future issues. No surprises builds trust. Moreover if you
focus on content and write captivating articles your readers
will sit in anticipation of the next discussion. Tell them
that the list is tentative to leave yourself a bit of

(4) Refrain from advertisements or sales copy when building
your list.

After you take time to put yourself into your E-Zine, then decide
if you want to let anyone else in. Don't be tempted by the
quickness of using someone else's content and profits from paid
advertising. Develop first a high content electronic publication.
Self satisfaction, praiseScience Articles, and the esteem of others will result.
