Newsletter: What is it and why should you use one?
A newsletter can be an excellent marketing tool for your business when used correctly. It’s a way to keep in contact with customers and provide them with new offers or products they might not know about yet.
There are many different types of newsletters that serve various purposes. From monthly news updates to seasonal product announcements, newsletters can be customized to suit your needs (and budget).
One of the best things about newsletters is that you can track their success. You can see how many people open them, click on links, and even sign up for your mailing list. This information can help you to tweak your newsletter content and make it more effective in the future.
I am personally subscribed to a few newsletters (Seth’s Blog, SEO Notebook, The WhiP) I follow every week – it’s a blend of industry news and promotion of products and services they offer.

This is a great way to encourage people to sign up for your newsletter after they’ve read an article or blog post.
Use a popup CTA
This is a great way to catch people’s attention when they first visit your website.
Use a slide-in CTA
This is a great way to catch people’s attention when they’re about to leave your website.
