10 Valuable Tips For Ezine Publishers
1. Write your own articles.
Your articles will give you an effective way to build up your status as an expert by sharing your tips and advice with your readers.
Your articles will also help you to effectively promote your business through your resource box at the end of your articles.
Use your articles to get more subscribers by submitting them to article directories and announcement lists with a resource box that promotes your ezine.
2. Recommend the products of affiliate programs you've joined to your subscriber base.
If you've earned the trust of your subscribers your recommendations will help you to successfully increase your commissions.
Only recommend products you can honestly vouch for and that you believe can meet your subscribers' needs.
3. Swap ads with other ezine publishers.
You could swap an ad for your ezine or for your business with another ezine publisher in exchange for publishing her ad in your ezine.
Try to swap ads for multiple issues and track your ads so that you'll know which ezines are the best ones to continue swapping ads with.
4. Swap "thank you" page ads with other ezine publishers.
Promote other ezines on the page your new subscribers are taken to after filling out a form or subscription box to join your ezine in exchange for those publishers promoting your ezine on their "thank you" pages.
In addition to swapping ads on this page, you can also swap recommendations with other ezine publishers to get even more powerful promotion from your "thank you" page swaps.
5. Publish testimonials.
Post testimonials for your ezine on your site as well as testimonials for your products within your ezine.
6. Provide a sample issue or an archive of your past issues on your site.
This will help you to increase your subscriptions by showing your visitors what your ezine has to offer them.
7. Encourage reader participation.
You could run contests, have your readers send in their tips, or have an ask the editor section where you answer questions sent in from your subscribers.
You could also ask your readers to send in their articles for publication in your ezine.
8. Occasionally send out a special solo mailing to your subscribers that tells them about your sale, discount, or subscriber only special.
9. Promote your ezine in your signature file. Use your signature file in your emails to your visitors and clients that email you with their questions and also in your posts to moderated discussion lists and forums.
10. Promote your ezine on every page of your site.
You never know what page your visitors might enter your site from. Promoting your ezine on every page ensures that your visitors will know about your ezine and that they'll be able to easily subscribe to your publication.

It is, after all, one of your first impressions with prospective customers ? and first impressions absolutely do count on the internet. Not only is your welcome message a natural opportunity for you to connect with your subscribers, it's also your chance to make sure they remember you with positive anticipation so that they will be eager to open up your next message when it arrives.

5 Ways to Make More Money With Your E-zine
Have you been publishing an e-mail newsletter for at least six months but still aren't seeing real results (read: revenue) from it? Don't fret - you may just need a tune up. Here are five ways to kick your e-zine income into gear this year: TOOT YOUR OWN HORN MORE The adage goes, "If you don't blow your own horn, someone else will use it as a spittoon." If your focus is providing your readers with useful information that enriches their lives and businesses, bravo! That SHOULD be your focus. But now I want you to look out for yourself as well: Take at least 25 percent of your e-zine space and make it all about YOU. Give promos for your services, products, books, workshops, etc. List raving testimonials from clients and customers who LOVE you. Weave your business success stories into your articles and tips. Share something funny about your weekend that makes me feel closer to knowing you personally. (For more self-promotion tips, see my article at http://www.ezinequeen.com/7ways.htm) MAKE ME AN OFFER I CAN'T REFUSE Let's suppose I'm one of your subscribers. Even if I realize you offer wonderful products and services, I may need a kick in the pants to make a move. To entice me, offer me a special, l1mited-time deal. Examples: three months' of consultation for the price of two, a 20% discount on your latest book or newest service, or one of your usual offers with a few exciting bonuses thrown in. Make the offer obsolete within a few days or by next week. By putting a time limit on it, I'll be more apt to act now instead of later. Don't overlook how powerful this tactic can be. Some of my most profitable weeks have resulted from running a limited time, special pr0motion of this type in my e-zine. PACKAGE IT AT A LOWER PRICE POINT This is a super strategy for service professionals such as consultants and coaches. As your subscriber, I know the way to get the BEST service from you would be to hire you one-on-one, but perhaps I can't afford that right now. BUT consider that I may likely be interested in lower-priced options such as group coaching, teleclasses, online seminars, or a manual/e-book. This is exactly how I became an e-book author. When I started my first e-zine, my main business was writing for corporate communications. After I gained a few thousand subscribers, I realized that my readers were mostly small business owners and entrepreneurs. So I began creating products and services geared toward them. And now I profit more from those each month than from my corporate work. PROMOTE A PRODUCT/SERVICE THAT COMPLEMENTS YOURS Do your readers and clients often ask you about a certain topic that's related to - but not exactly - what you offer? Then resell a resource that you heartily recommend and would put your reputation behind. For example, while my specialty is e-zines, I get many questions about creating and selling information products online. So I continually research credible resources on this topic to share with my readers. Many of the creators of these products offer a handsome commission on any sales I refer to them. (I do this myself by paying out up to 25% commission on any referred sale. http://www.ezinequeen.com/affiliate.htm) NEVER recommend any service or product to your readers that you haven't personally tried and wouldn't back 100 percent. Otherwise you'll blow the trust that you've worked so hard to build up in your readership. SELL AD SPACE AS IT SUITS YOU E-zine ads won't make you wealthy, but they can make for some handy extra c^sh. (I call it my "margarita money.") Most e-zines offer one sponsor ad at the top and several "classified" ads at the bottom. Sponsor ads typically cost three to five times more than the classified ad, but you'll see the ranges vary greatly. Start by offering ad specials to your own readers. Then also list your e-zine in the many e-zine advertising directories on the Web. These services help match advertisers with appropriate publishers just like you. (Need help? My manual gives step-by-step instructions on how to accept and profit from ads in your e-zine.) Remember that you have every right to be selective about the type of ads you accept. While your readers know these ads don't represent YOUR business, their quality will indirectly influence their perception of you.
