Create a Free Newsletter - How to Create Newsletters for Free
Would you like to find out how to create a free newsletter easily and fast? Then here's a step-by-step guide helping you discover how to create a newsletter for free that will attract lots of subscribers.
Step 1: Choose a Topic for Your
Since you're going
to write your newsletter on a regular basis, it's essential
that you choose a topic you enjoy writing about or have good knowledge about. This is a very important step in creating your newsletter.
Otherwise, it will be too boring and difficult for you to
keep writing a valuable, informative article every day,
week, or month.
I speaking from personal experience. I once
started a newsletter about a topic I didn't enjoy writing
about - because I knew it was a profitable niche.
I spent a lot of time and energy choosing
a name, designing a professional cover, creating an HTML
newsletter template, and so on. But after writing a couple of issues,
I discovered I couldn't continue doing that for a long time.
So I stopped publishing my newsletter.
If I knew this secret earlier, I wouldn't
lose that much of my time. But now you know it. I shared
this secret with you so that you could save yourself a lot
of time by avoiding the mistake I made.
Choose a topic you enjoy writing about and have some good knowledge too, so
you will have fun writing each of your issues. And be creative.
Your newsletter doesn't have to be about making money online.
Here are the steps you should take for finding
a good, creative topic for your newsletter...
Step 1: Pick a pen and a
piece of paper and go somewhere that nobody disturbs you.
Brainstorm as many ideas as you can think of. Write down
everything your mind comes across - even the craziest ideas.
Because they will act like a path to more creative ideas.
Step 2: Look at your list
and choose the topics you enjoy writing about - no matter
whether you think they're profitable or not.
Step 3: Cross out the ideas
you think you don't have enough information to write informative
articles about on a regular basis.
Step 4: Finally, pick the
topic you think will be more profitable. Yes, I know you
want to make money from your newsletter, but believe me,
it's the last thing you should consider while choosing a
Congratulations! Now you have a great topic
idea for your newsletter.

Step 2: Study the Competition
Your competitors have spent some time - maybe even years
- to get to where they are right now. They have also spent
a lot of money testing different techniques and strategies.
Now you can learn from them.
By studying their website, newsletter, sales letter, etc.
you will learn many proven techniques you can use to start
from where they are right now, and get better and faster
Another important benefit of studying your competition,
is that you can learn from their current mistakes. So you
can avoid them in your own newsletter to create the best
newsletter in your field.
Step 3: Choose a Name
The name of your newsletter will have a big effect on its
readership. I've written a complete article about newsletter
names. In that article, you will get creative ideas
and helpful tips to choose a title for your newsletter.
Step 4: Choose a Format
You can publish your newsletter in plain text,
HTML, or PDF. Many people still prefer plain text
because it's simple and clean. Some others like HTML because
it lets you use images, colors, different font faces, and
so on in it.
I can't tell you which format is the best for you because
it all depends on your readers. Many newsletter
writers publish their newsletter in both plain text and
HTML. They send their newsletter in plain text and link
to the HTML version of it online. I personally think this
method is the best.
5. Design Your Newsletter Template
If you publish your ezine in plain text, creating a template
is going to be easy. But as for HTML and PDF templates it
will take some work. You can create your own template or
use one of the free HTML templates available online.
I've created some free
newsletter templates in plain text, HTML and PDF. Feel
free to use them for your newsletter or give them away on
6. Write Your First 3 Newsletter Issues
Before starting you newsletter, make sure you write the
first 3 issues. This helps you find out if you really
can continue publishing it. You may not have the
necessary information or interest to write an informative
article about the chosen topic every day, week or month.
If after writing 3 issues, you find out you have to struggle
to write each article, I really recommend you rethink about
the topic you've chosen.
Are you sure you ca keep writing
informative articles about it week after week, or month
after month? Imagine how much time this technique will save

7. Find a Good Autoresponder
An autoresponder helps you...
your "subscribes" and "unsubscribes"
follow up messages
your mailing lists
You can use an autoresponder service or software. If you
use a software program, you need to keep your computer turned
on all the time to be able to send follow up messages automatically.
Well, this will be difficult if you work from home.
However, by using
an autoresponder service, you won't have this problem. So
I recommend using an autoresponder service if you don't
want keep your computer on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
There are so many autoresponder services out there that
it's very easy to get confused. How do you know which one
is the best? Which one provides a faster and more reliable
service plus a good customer support?
Recently, I researched a lot and read different autoresponders
reviews online. I also asked successful newsletter publishers
about the service they used. After all the research, I've
found out GetResponse is the best autoresponder service available since 4 years ago.
They provide unlimited autoresponders, unlimited follow up messages, unlimited email
campaigns, unlimited free phone support, advanced
personalization features, complete ad tracking features,
and lots of other great features that you'll get at a reasonable
