In the fast paced and extremely competitive world of
internet business today, savvy business owners and
webmasters alike are finding more and more creative and
effective ways to monetize very nearly every aspect of
their businesses.

These internet marketers, both huge conglomerates and
modest one man operations, of this exciting new tech
oriented era have come to realize that one of the most
determining factors related to their success or failure is
now, and always has been, a properly structured and
tediously cultivated consumer database.

Not surprisingly, the phrase "the money is in the list"
has become the bi-line for literally thousands of marketing
promotions offering a huge array of techniques and
products promising all sorts of list building results,
most of which rely on one key element to be effective...
website traffic.

One very effective tactic which will help you to attract
visitors to your website without spending a fortune on
advertising is providing a newsletter for your
subscribers. Also commonly known as "ezines", regularly
published newsletters provide many benefits for both you
and for your subscribers. Two of the most obvious benefits
for you are; (1) The results can be very financially
rewarding and (2) The actual amount of time and effort
that you will need to dedicate to the creation and

long term relationship with them.

newsletter would be the ability to position yourself as an
authority, or even an expert on various subjects and/or

into very effective "self promotion" and begin to draw new
readers to your publication just on the strength of word

made apparent through your writings.

Obviously, much of this type of benefit is going to depend
heavily upon your level of knowledge related to the
subject of the discussion at hand. This is not to say that
you are going to have to become an expert on every subject
that you choose to cover in your publication. It does
however, require you to do the necessary research to
enable yourself to offer your educated opinion on subjects
which you may not already be familiar with.

It is critical that you always do the necessary research
to verify your material and provide only accurate
information to your readers. It has been said that people
