It’s time to arrange your own one.

With newsletters you’re talking directly to your audience. It’s a personal way to attract their attention and increase engagement (if you need more tips, don’t forget to check this article)

But, what is a newsletter? According to Wikipedia: 

A newsletter is a printed or electronic report containing news concerning the activities of a business or an organization that is sent to its members, customers, employees or other subscribers. Newsletters generally contain one main topic of interest to its recipients. A newsletter may be considered grey literature.

If you want to create your own one but you don’t know how to start doing it, we have selected for you some useful tips.

Manage your list and build your community

A newsletter is more than an email. 

Announce your new subscribers, check Insights and thank people that have opened, read, shared and appreciated your articles.

Keep your newsletters short and simple

Nobody wants to read a novel, best newsletters are short and easy to read.

Focus only on your main topic and add links in case people want to know more about other related themes.

Include images and illustrations

Make it colorful: Add amazing images, illustrations, icons and infographics. It will be easier to read it and your newsletter will be more engaging and attractive.

Use a call to action

Always add a call to action: A sign up button or a like one.

Personalizate your newsletters

Personalization is the key. According to the website oberlo.com, emails with personalised subject lines generate 50% open rates. 

Your readers are special, treat them as they need and you will be the reason they will open their mailbox.
