7 Useful Free Services For E-publishers
If you want to have an online business, without doubt, you should have your own newsletter. Why is that important? Most people won't buy your product on their first visit to your web site. They need your advice to buy exactly your product because "it is the best, the cheapest" etc. You can tell them when you will make an update, to visit your site again, and so you get repeat visits. You should provide some useful content in your newsletter to make them stay as your subscribers.
When you decide to have a newsletter, you should promote it, so that you will have more people on your list. It is easy to build a big list very fast, if you pay for that. However, many people don't have much money to spend for their list promotion so they mostly must use free services. This brings up a good question? Which services are useful for e-publishing and are also free? Here, I will write 7 services that I use and which have showed good results.
1. Swap ads
Swapping ads can be very useful. You have to find newsletters that have quality content and a contact to the owner. When you make a contact you have to write why you are interested in swapping ads with that newsletter. You have to tell about the benefits of swapping with you.

2. Article submit
It is very useful for list promotion to submit your articles to other publishers that are looking for some content. You should put a resource box at the end of your article where you will write who are you; you can also put your web site and list address... It is more likely that they will subscribe to your newsletter if they liked your article rather than reading your ad. You have to find those publishers who will be interested in your articles.
3. List submit
There are services where you can submit a description of your list or announce when you are going to publish it. These services can be useful because, they provide quality lists. Therefore, people can decide to subscribe to your list.
4. Participate on discussion lists

However, there is a free service where you can get a list of domain names that are free because of non-payment. Also, you have to check if a certain name is available.
6. Applications and Services

7. Search engines
There are many different opinions as to how useful are search engines. Having a good placement in a search engine for relevant words can be very useful for your list promotion. I must say that it is not worth submitting to every search engine. There are a few that are the most popular.
These 7 services can get you subscribers for your newsletter. Don't expect that you will immediately have several thousand subscribers using free services because it doesn't work that way. Don't believe in everything that you read on the Net, because you can be disappointed. E-publishing can be very useful for you and for your business if you use it in the right way, because, it establishes you as an expert in your field of expertise.
