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 Newsletter

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 topic.

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 results.

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 your website.



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 you!

You can simply subscribe to the free Newsletter Publishing Secrets newsletter to learn powerful tips and ideas to easily find a lot of killer article ideas that your readers will love.

7. Find a Good Autoresponder

An autoresponder helps you...

  • Process your "subscribes" and "unsubscribes" in real-time
  • Send personalized messages
  • Send follow up messages
  • Manage your mailing lists
  • And much more...

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 price.
