How to Construct your Newsletter
The first thing you need to decide is how elaborate your newsletter is going to be. You can send plain text newsletters, or use html templates and designs to customise your newsletter so it looks professional and represents your company, blog, website or organisation.
Bear in mind that even if you are going to use a template, keep it simple.
Don’t attempt to replicate your website design as your email will become data heavy and cause you problems.
Next, ask yourself what do you want your newsletter to do? What is it’s purpose?
Is it just to stay in touch? To showcase new offers or products? To sell to your contacts? To deliver niche news to your contacts?
If you use a newsletter management service like www.elysium-connect.co.uk then you will be able to track back every click from your newsletter as see which of your contacts has clicked on which offer.
This is invaluable information, as it gives you the opportunity to then target those prospects with more information on the product or service that they are interested in.
It is always a good idea to have a consistent structure to your newsletter, as well as sending it out on a regular basis.
Have different sections for different subjects, and always add a link through for more information on a page of your website.
The whole purpose of your newsletter is to drive traffic to relevant web pages, where you can sell your specific offer to them.
Your newsletter content should be a taster, a teaser to arouse interest and make the reader take action and click the link.
Don’t include too much information in your newsletter, but just enough to get your readers keen to know more…..
