At a time when online marketers are so enthralled by "what's new," whether that be social network sites or online video, there is a danger that they may ignore one of the most powerful but misunderstood of all online marketing channels: e-newsletters.

Email newsletters have been part of the online landscape from the beginning, and in the hands of skilled marketers, make a very significant contribution not only to the immediate bottom line, but also to long-term customer value.

With a quality newsletter you can hold the attention of tens or hundreds of thousands of readers. Over time, you can build a level of trust and loyalty that no other channel can match.

During the course of this seminar you will be taken through each of the steps necessary to create a quality newsletter that will hold the long-term attention of your readers and deliver revenue.

While the examples offered will be B-to-C newsletters, most of what you will learn can also be applied to B-to-B newsletters.
