Making money on the Internet is a long sought-after goal of many individuals and companies; and as such they employ various methods in their attempt to achieve this goal. Most who pursue this goal start out by building a website, creating a product/service (‘product’), or establishing affiliations to promote, market and sell products – and some are active in all three areas.
However, did you know that it is very possible to make money on the Internet without promoting or selling products? One way this can be accomplished is by publishing of your own eZine, if you are one of the above mentioned pursuers of Internet money-making success; because an eZine, also known as an electronic newsletter, can be started with your own dynamic and creative ideas put in article form and shared regularly with those whom you have determined are interested in subscribing to it.
Put in a nutshell, after you format the eZine publication, simply send out issues periodically to your subscribers. The good part is that you have a great deal of flexibility in determining whether you wish to automate the process of sending out your eZine issues, or manually sending them on a periodic basis.
As an eZine publisher, not only can you easily achieve the benefits a conventional newsletter publisher enjoys without having to chop down several trees in the process, you can easily and conveniently spread your marketing influence and expertise – on one subject, or range of subjects – to your base of readers of subscribers from the perspective of an ordinary individual (you).
In other words, you do not have to invest in expensive printing equipment, like a traditional brick and mortar publishing business; and it’s certainly not necessary to hire a staff just to run your own newsletter publication. These types of expenses represent hindrances and obstacles in the form of capital, time and exhaustive effort that have stymied many businesses before they even get started. You would not encounter such problems with an eZine, but could derive substantial benefits.
Basically, all you need to start your own eZine are an auto responder and broadcast feature to go with, enabling you to reach out to your massive subscribers whom you can regard as your prospects also. So if you do not have the skill, money and time necessary to create your own for-sale product, then publishing your own online newsletter can be one of the wisest decisions you will ever make, given the benefits of impressive marketing power and influence it can offer to you.
Most importantly, when publishing an eZine it is strongly recommended that you insert a resource box, the purpose of which is to list your name – as the eZine author – your website address and perhaps a few lines of information about yourself at the end of content you shared with subscribers. It can be said that your resource box is the most important part of the eZine for those who wish to monetize it.
