    Any ideas on how to make a good newsletter?
    I am always afraid of emailing our customers but I think a weekly or monthly newsletter would be fine.

    Any ideas on a nice template and content suggestions. We are a web hosting company. It's kind of a boring industry, not much changes each week.

    Stuff is always changing in technology though, and that could make a newsletter from a hosting company pretty interesting. What's the newest gadget? Did something change in WP? What new functions or updates are now available? Set up a few Google alerts on different keywords, and I bet you'll come up with a whole list of potential story ideas.

    Depending on who you use as your email company, they should have some templates you can try.

    Google news alerts, didn't think of that. Great idea.

    We would use our own system in our CMS, I'm sure I can track down a nice template online.

    Excited about the Google news alerts, that is really good idea lol thanks!

    Also recommend signing up for updates from competitors and other companies that are aligned with your industry for ideas. When I get ready to launch an affiliate program I survey the competition and sign-up for their newsletters. Gives me an idea what they are doing and stay abreast of new products and concepts.

    All this is great advice for AFFILIATES as well - use this info for your newsletters, too.

    Building a good newsletter is tough, you don't want to make your customers/contacts angry. Always have an easy to find "unsuscribe" link in it, in case people want to file an abuse and blacklist your mail server...
