Now that you're convinced you need a newsletter and have chosen a provider, it's time to write! You may be thinking,"I already write blog posts. I don't have time to write a newsletter!" Don't worry, this will be painless.
What to write about + newsletter tips:
- First, keep it short and sweet.
- You must have a compelling headline. Make sure you stand out in the inbox.
- Already have a blog? Great! Use your newest blog post. Use a great opening paragraph and then have a "read more" link sending readers to your blog post. Your blog post titles need to be attention grabbing, too, so this will help your newsletters.
- Write a little about your newest feature. Marie Forleo, inspiring woman + founder of B-School, writes a few sentences about her newest "Q&A Tuesday" with a picture and link to the newest video.
An example from Marie Forleo:
- Use frequently asked questions or quick tips. Again, keep it short, simple + engaging. You can re-use this tip or FAQ for a blog post down the line.
- Which emails do you open and which emails do you find compelling? Which do you click through to websites? Pay attention and test that method in your own newsletters!
