Simple Tips on How to Create a Newsletter for your Business

As business owners, we always have this one question that goes through our minds from day to day, how can I attract more clients? Creating a newsletter for your business is an excellent way to get more clients. Newsletters give prospective clients a chance to understand the purpose of your business. This might sound like a difficult task but newsletters can be fun to create. Just remember to make your newsletters informative, interesting, and most importantly creative.

Tip 1 – Make Newsletters Informative. Be sure to provide them with as much information about your business as you can.

* Give background information about you and your staff. This will allow the prospective client to get a basic idea of who you are and your qualifications. It is also helpful to provide pictures of you and your staff.
* List basic services your business provides. This gives the client a chance to see whether your business provides the services that they need.
* Provide the purpose for setting up your business. I would put this as an introduction so that readers can understand why you started your business.
* Keep readers informed. Give prospective clients the latest updates on your business such as new services that you offer and special discounts. Also, you can include a calendar of events letting readers know about important dates.

Tip 2 – Make Newsletters Interesting. You want to provide readers with ample amounts of information about your business but at the same time too much information can be quite boring.

* Do your research. Try to provide things in your newsletter that no one else has. Remember you want to set your newsletter apart from everyone else.
* Keep them guessing. Leave the reader wondering what will be in the next issue. For example you might want to include tips, trivia, articles, etc., make it interesting but yet your own. If you are going to write an article or provide tips make sure that it correlates to your target market. Be mindful of who you will be distributing your newsletters to.

Tip 3 – Be Creative. Show prospective clients not only your business side but your creative side as well.

* Brainstorm. Create an outline of what you want to include in your newsletter. Try to reach your readers not only on a professional level but a personal level. Microsoft’s website has plenty of different newsletter templates and pictures to choose from. Make your newsletter colorful; avoid using plain colors such as black and white.
* Think outside the box. Try to come up with catchy headings. The key is being creative not simple. Give the reader a reason to want to subscribe to your newsletter.
* Proof, Proof, Proof. Your newsletter will be a reflection of you and your business. Before you go to print with your newsletter be sure to proof, proof, proof. The last thing you want to do is send your newsletters to prospective clients and it is filled with errors. That will definitely not attract more clients.

Once you have completed your newsletter here are some common questions to ask yourself:

Will readers have a basic understanding of why my business exists?

Have I provided enough information about my business and myself?

Will readers want to subscribe to my newsletter regularly?

Will the information provided correlate to my target market?

Creating a newsletter is quite simple and fun to do. When I first started working on our newsletter I had no idea what I was getting myself into it. The more I did it, the easier it became. I truly enjoy creating newsletters and using these simple tips you too can create your own newsletter and actually have fun doing it.
