Write A Better Newsletter!
You've decided to write your very own Newsletter to promote your business, communicate with your customers, or just for FUN.
You've read hundreds of newsletters.
You've also noticed many of these newsletters lack original material.
They are identical in format and/or article content!
Don't Fall Into That Easy Trap!
The following tips will help the new newsletter writer/ publisher create a better newsletter.
Know Who You Are Writing For.
This sounds simple enough, you must know your readers. What are their demographics. Are they male, female, young, old, middle income, high income, getting by, just starting out, looking for business opportunities, looking for work at home jobs, stay at home moms, business women or men. Learn to select the articles that reflect your readers interest.
Establish A Publishing Schedule.
Professionals publish on a regular basis.
Make that your goal!
A regular publishing schedule will also assist you when you accept articles from writers. The contributors will have an idea when to submit articles. And this will also assist in scheduling your ads. You will know how to schedule ads, knowing what issue they will appear in, according to your publishing schedule.
Stick To Your Plan Like Glue.
If you plan your issues the 1'st of every month stick to it. Don't publish erratically. You will lose readers or they may forget they subscribed to your newsletter because of your irregular publishing schedule.
Proofreading is very critical to the publishing process. Every publisher must proofread the newsletter before it is sent out. Take the time to correct any spelling or grammar errors. This will improve the quality of your publication. Run your spell check program and then go over the text with your own eyes looking for common errors the program may have ignored like substituting two for too, or their for they're.
Experiment With Style.
Change your format. Add different types of articles. Ask readers to send in their questions or opinions. Have surveys. Trivia bits, breaking news, quotes, even your favorite jokes. The change in format will keep readers interested while improving your writing skills in various formats.
Research your articles online. Add interesting links to more relevant information. Links to another free resource, software, interesting downloads, are always welcomed.
Invite New Writers
Writing a newsletter is overwhelming to most new publishers. Seek help from writers online. Ask your readers or writers to contribute to the newsletter. Offer a resource box in your newsletter to all contributors as compensation.
This will prompt queries from many writers. And of course you can easily download articles from many article directories online.

Write Your Way To A Better Brain
Boost Brain Power Through Writing
Good writing is like sex. Two people are involved ? the writer and the reader. Bad sex usually satisfies only one person, most preferably, the writer ? the person who leads. Good sex not only satisfies both people, it pleasures them. So, like sex, writing must have all vital points that reach unto this pleasure ? movement, foreplay, sensitivity, rhythm and climax. When a writer carefully and logically includes all these aspects, the reader is pleasured, satiated and gratified, but when a writer ignores them, the reader feels that the writer is impotent and he abandons him after that one night. Good writing is about making a person desire to read.

Writers are often are greatly surprised or disappointed by how their work is changed when it is adapted for the big screen.
