Publishing your Newsletter


8.- Contents

Part of running a successful business is knowing what to do yourself, what to hire others to do, and what to outsource altogether. Payroll is an obvious candidate for outsourcing. Perhaps somewhere in this document, you decided that, while you really would like to publish a newsletter, you simply don't have the cycles free to do it in-house.

Five Must-Haves for a Successful Newsletter
Even if you decide to outsource your newsletter, you'll still have to handle many of the functions yourself. A successful newsletter requires all of the following:

A purpose for the newsletter. What will you provide via your newsletter, other than your weekly specials?
A voice. Who will be talking to your subscribers? The voice of Corporate America is not all that appealing. Personalize it by creating a likeable voice that will speak to your subscribers. Notice right now, that we are not giving you advice in the abstract, we are talking with you about this process. Don't have your newsletter talk at the recipients, have it talk to them.
Constant promotion. Rare, indeed, is the newsletter that grows on its own. If you decide to publish a newsletter, you'll need to promote it everywhere your business is promoted. Add its name to your signature file. Offer people a way to subscribe "above the fold" on your home page and any other pages that search engines rank highly.
Content. What will you say on the theme of your newsletter each week (or whatever interval you publish)? You'll need consistent, high-quality content that recipients can't get anywhere else or aren't likely to come across elsewhere.
Distribution. How will you distribute your newsletter? Parts 5 and 6 of this series covered this in detail.

Of the five must-haves I listed above, only the last two really lend themselves to outsourcing.

Finding Content Providers
There are many places you can look to find people willing to create content and distribute it for you. We heard from a reader from India who runs Ezynes.com. For a price you won't match in the U.S., they'll write the content and do the distribution, or just write the content. For whatever market you're publishing, make sure the content rings true and sounds like it was written by a native speaker. That is one thing that impressed me about the samples this reader sent me. There was no discernable foreign intonation.

You can also look for writers at eMarketplaces such as eLance.com and Guru.com. Be sure to check references and writing samples. Make sure that the person or company whose services you enlist is able to meet your deadlines and speak with the voice that you want to convey. If you work with a company, get a guarantee that you'll work with the same writer every time. This way, you'll avoid having to train several writers in your voice.

If you continually see the type of content you'd like to provide on a news and information site such as internet.com, see if you can syndicate the content. One good thing about syndication is that you're sure the content will be high quality. That's one of the big "ifs" when outsourcing.

Content Expertise
Another place to look for writers is among content experts. To whom do you look for expertise in your field? Contact them and see if you can't arrange some combination of pay and barter in exchange for frequent contributions. You will likely pay more than if you obtained a writer from eLance.com or Guru.com, but you will also be far more likely to get content that your readers will be willing to open, read, print, and forward.

There is so much information available for free on the Web that yours will need to stand out both in terms of quality and in terms of relevance to keep from being deleted before being read.
