The purpose of a newsletter is to provide specialized information to a targeted audience. Newsletters can be a great way to market your product or service, and also can create credibility and build your organization’s identity among peers, members, employees, or vendors.
First, determine the audience of the newsletter. This could be anyone who might benefit from the information it contains, for example, employees or people interested in purchasing a product or in requesting your service.
You can compile a mailing list from business reply cards, customer information sheets, business cards collected at trade shows, or membership lists. You might consider purchasing a mailing list from a company.
Next, establish how much time and money you can spend on your newsletter. These factors will help determine how frequently you publish your newsletter and its length. It’s recommended that you publish your newsletter at least quarterly so that it’s considered a consistent source of information. Your customers or employees will look forward to its arrival.
Your headline is an important part of the newsletter and should be considered carefully.
