With the passing of time there has been an evolution in the types of promotional materials but hardly can any match the popularity of newsletters in terms of being the best form of catering fresh information. If you search by print promotions there will be so many mediums available to you such as brochures, letterheads, rack cards, booklets, etc. but hardly can any of these mediums be compared to the overwhelming nature of a newsletter. But the sad part is that most of the company owners in today’s date are using the newsletters in a wrong way. People have become bored with the same old comments “we are the best” and several other such pieces of promotional quotes. Some other marketers make their newsletters so overburdened with facts, figures and information about their company that the recipients feel disinterested in going through them. Thus the location of a large percentage of newsletters in today’s date is the trash box.
The main purpose of a newsletter can be defined as that of building loyal customer base that stays with your company for a long time. If you can build a long term relationship with the readers then you are sure to catch their attention. Below are some tips for ensuring that:
While creating a newsletter be very sure about the target audience. To know your target audience abide by these steps –
- Gather a group of potential readers. Be clear whether you want to target the customers, affiliates or all the people listed in the mailing list.
- Create a rough estimate of the payment you expect from them in return for your newsletter service.
- Know what your prospective audience wants.
- Get information about your competitors.
- Study the details what your competitors are doing and design your newsletter based on that.
- Focus on things that your readers want but somehow or the other your competitors have missed out on those.
- Be free to use colors and graphics as these will gather a lot of attention.
- Graphics should also be used as these give a visual relief to the readers from the texts present in the newsletters. It makes the page much easier to read.
- When using colors always choose colors that are opposite to each other on the color wheel, these are the best combinations.
- Use visuals to reinforce the important ideas that are present in the text of the newsletter.
- After all these there is one important act left that is to proofread the matter. This may seem very trivial but it is very important. If there are spelling mistakes, typo errors in a newsletter than it convey a very bad message to the readers.
