The word “E-zine is defined as an electronic magazine or newsletter which is transmitted via email to readers. Some e-zine owners have their e-zine available via their website (Web E-zine).
There are a number of steps you should take in order to develop a successful e-zine. I have outline the steps below:
First: Determine what topics you will discuss. Do you have a hobby? Is there a topic you are fairly knowledgeable about? Do you own a business? Your knowledge on any subject can be the basis for the topic of your e-zine.
Next, determine your target market. The e-zine I publish relates to business and marketing issues. My e-zine is directed towards business owners, opportunity seeks and Internet marketers. I want to provide tips on how to successfully market and Internet business. Determine who you will target and your purpose for targeting this group.
Third – The overall style, layout, content and delivery of your e-zine is extremely important. You want to project a level of professionalism. Proper grammar and punctuation are essential to a good e-zine.
What will keep the masses coming back for more of your e-zine….Content! This is considered the “meat” of any e-zine. If you are not familiar with writing articles, there are a number of resources you can use to add content to your e-zine. The articles listed here -(http://www.ideamarketers.com) are written by people who are considered to be “top Internet marketers”. I have used their articles in my e-zine publications. Websites:
