7 Effective Ways To Get More New Ezine Subscribers

by: Ken Hill

1. Swap an ad.

Pinpoint which ads and ezines work best for you by tracking your swaps. Also try to swap for multiple issues as many people won’t respond to your ad until they see it a few times.

2. Purchase ezine ads.

Run ads for your ezine in relevant ezines that you enjoy. Also search ezine directories for ezines that offer reasonable rates and that reach your target market.

3. Do a thank you page swap.Get excellent ongoing promotion of your ezine by using your thank you page to swap an ad or recommendation with another ezine publisher. Choose ezines that your new subscribers would be interested in, but not ezines that compete directly with you. Also make sure that you only recommend ezines that truly do offer valuable content, so that you won’t start off on the wrong foot with your new subscribers.

4. Offer a bonus.

Increase your subscriptions by offering something for free that your target market would find to be of value. For example, you could offer a free email course, ebook, report or access to your “subscriber only” membership site.

5. Write articles.

Your articles can help you to establish yourself as an expert in your field. Your articles can also help you to get more new readers that are interested in the topics covered in your ezine. Just add a resource box that promotes your ezine to your articles, or include a couple of lines of promotion for your ezine in addition to your other information.

6. Offer a sample issue.

Offer your sample issue on your site or by autoresponder, and when you can use it in your posts to ezine directories. You can also increase your subscriptions by linking to your sample issue in your resource box when you write articles to promote your ezine.

7. Provide testimonials.

Increase your ezine’s credibility by including testimonials that praise your ezine on your site. Include your reader’s first and last name and web address along with her testimonial, and when you can use testimonials that are specific in nature as opposed to those that are general.

7 Ways to Get More Mileage from Your Free Reprint Articles

by: Shery Ma Belle Arrieta-Russ

Do you have old free reprint articles gathering dust? Transform and re-submit them to give your business, product or service another boost!

Here are 7 ways:

1. Transform your article.

You can transform your article in several ways:

– Give it a bullet or number format.
– Give it a Q and A format.
– Give it an anecdote format by adding your own experience.
– Give it a Problem-Solution format.
– Give it a short feature format by interspersing quotes from 2-3 people with information.

Do this and you’ll end up with many versions of your original article.

2. Create many titles for your article versions.

List possible titles for the article versions you develop. Mix and match the titles with the article versions.

3. Give your article a different tone/style.

If your article is too serious, rewrite it and give it a lighter tone.

4. Focus your article on a specific audience.

If your article is too generalized, transform it into several articles aimed at specific types of readers.

For example, an article titled “Creative Online Marketing” can have these title variations:

– “Creative Online Marketing for Webmasters”
– “Creative Online Marketing for Small Business Owners”
– “Creative Online Marketing for Affiliates”
– “Creative Online Marketing for Auctioneers”

In the above example, 4 new article versions can be developed simply by being more specific with the target reader. Do this on your article, then simply do a minor edit of your original article by tailoring the content with specific article titles.

5. Expound on a sub-topic.

Go over an article and see if you can expound on a sub-topic, keyword or idea. Then develop that into a bulleted article.

6. Shorten your article.

Transform a 1500-word article into a 500-word one. The shorter, the better. In writing, one rule of thumb is: if you can get your point across in as fewer words as possible, do so.

7. Update your article.

An article you wrote 5 years ago may still be applicable today. Simply update the article to reflect current trends or new insights you’ve had on the topic since you wrote it.

And here are some places you can submit your new article versions:

Article lists:
