Why should writers, coaches and speakers subscribe to Opt-In Ezines?”

    November 29, 2002

Opt-in ezines, produced by companies, individuals, web sites or publishers, offer their subscribers unique, useful information. They use the “free” article format of 500-1400 words or a tip format from 100-400 words. Each ezine has anywhere from 1000 to many thousand subscribers per ezine. Think of the multiple exposure your message will have when you submit to these ezines.

Subscribe and Benefit – 5 Ways

1. Keep up with the latest promotion and marketing on the net. These articles mentor you to do what other successful people do.

2. Learn how to operate your business to make more profits by the many “how-to” articles. The favorite, “how-to’s” not only teach you, they are most in demand, because people come to these ezines wanting free information.

3. Provide your own ezine with fresh material. While you may never run out of ideas, as an ezine publisher, you will want to give your readers different points of view from your own.

4. Use these articles for new Web site content as long as you include the signature file at the bottom. Because, if visitors don’t get new content each time they visit your site, they will leave you for a better one.

5. Learn and apply many new resources such as web site addresses and other ezine titles. This information helps to make your job easier. From these free articles, you can get the latest, up-to-the minute research for a book, a teleclass or a talk.
