Let's start with the definition of newsletters.
What are we talking about?
Wikipedia explains that: ’’ A newsletter is a periodic information update that a company, an institution, an association or a work group sends to a specific target, such as users, customers or members, updating them on their activities. Born in paper form, today it is mainly sent by e-mail. ''
How do you schedule a newsletter?
First of all, to design a newsletter you need to know your readers' interests well and only send quality content that is interesting to your potential customers.
The first step is to plan, you need to create a calendar and decide when you want to send your newsletter. Decide for each publication the type of topic to be treated. This way you can prepare your content in advance.
- The subject of the email is the most important part;
The more personal and engaging the style used to write the e-mail subject, the more successful you will be; if your e-mail appears as a 'sale at all costs', more users will trash your e-mail without even opening it. It is very nice to open the mail with the name of the recipient, whoever receives it will understand that it has been personalized for him.
- The message must be concise;
It is important that the message is short and concise to keep the interest of readers high.
