I‘ve been writing a monthly e-newsletter for three years, now. It took me a while to find my niche for the e-newsletter, but I’m fully into it now: every month, I share a “Social Media How-to.”
I started thinking recently, that it would be nice to have an archive of all these newsletters on my website. First off, it is a great source of information, and could be mined for information. Secondly, someone who might be hesitating about signing up for my e-newsletter could get a sense of what I write about, and get a clearer picture of whether or not they think it might be useful to them.
I use MailChimp, because it’s an insanely good deal. You can use MailChimp for free until your newsletter list reaches 2,000. There’s no other e-newsletter software out there that can offer you such a good deal. If you’re thinking about starting an e-newsletter of your own, here’s some basic information on them.
The screencast video that follows shows you how to do this, and you can check out the final results here.
