    Well to have an email database of people who are interested in your niche and who agreed to accept emails from you is really an online marketing gold.

    Monetization such database is very popular way how to get out of 9-5 working day. But of course you have to deliver quality content and offer your subscribers something they are interesting in, in the right way.

    Email newsletter is the best to retain the visitors however it is not easy with free tools like Feedburner. Daily emails appears to be spam emails for most of users. It is good to use Aweber and Mailchimp.

    Nice Post.

    • Tukang Masak

      Yup. I love weekly or bi-weekly newsletter, so that can go through all the articles easily.

      • Dinesh @ DailyBlogMoney

        The best way to make people to subscribe is ‘giving something useful free’.

  • Theresa Cahill

    Running an ezine/newsletter co-op for the past 10 years, I could not agree with you more. Many bloggers “make do” with posting – and then hope to establish relationships. However, adding the value of a newsletter (or ezine we like to call them lol), gives the blog writer that extra channel to reach out. In addition, you can actually build a real list of contacts (with permission), something a regular “reader” does not do for the blog writer (you just see a number, but never who).

    I know nothing beats a notice showing up in my inbox telling me “the newsletter is online.” People are busy and they need and appreciate the heads up.

    Standing invitation to all “publishers” (website or blogs) to see what I can do for you.

    I hope you don’t think this is self promoting, it’s not! Many bloggers (and website owners) don’t know where to go to help them grow their lists for free.

    (My name in this post will get you to a starting point. And assuming you approve it, thanks Kim for also reaching out to your visitors to help them see different ways of pulling their blogging together!)

    People habit to forgotten mostly.Newsletter remember you and your website and user update about your working.

    • Whiztechy

      Right Hubpk, I subscribe to newsletter because it’s not possible to track all the articles everyday and thus via newsletters its easy to read the articles whenever i get time.

  • Sathish@TechieMania

    Hi Whiz, I will completely agree with all the points you have listed here. Newsletter is the best way to keep you readers interacted and make them to come back to your blog all the time. Well, I am using feedburner newsletters. But its not that effective. Planning to use Aweber soon. Anyway, thanks for sharing an useful article.

  • Jimmy

    Interaction with the users is more important i think, coz you can easily bring a strong relationship with them and they will share their business ideas with you for sure :-)

    • Whiztechy

      Agree Jimmy, feedback which we get from readers are very important and helps us to get innovative ideas and at the end you get loyal readers and long term relations. :)
