Creating Subscription-Free Newsletters Powered By Docstoc
					by: William R. Nabaza

All good and bad newsletters or ezines require subscriptions. Newsletters will ask you for your
name and email address before you can receive valuable information from them. You might ask
yourself, "Am I too important that someone wants to know my name and email address? Yes,
you're that important as a lead or contact for the newsletter owner, that's why they're giving you
free for something in return and that's a little bit of your privacy. Some newsletters will go to the
extent of asking a survey-type question or majority will concentrate on your personal
information. You know what, majority of people that I "meet" on the internet are like that. They
are pleased to let them know you using their username or an alias. I was like that before hiding
under username: weblord but now I know better.

So now, you may ask how can I reach these majority who does not want to share their email
address or name? The answer is: create subscription- free newsletters. Actually, we're all doing
this since the start of internet and that is our personal homepages or an entire websites. Everyday,
users with no faces flood my websites looking for something that I can't help them with or
something that I already have but don't know how I can send it to them. Provide a page where
you can say everything there is to know about your products/services, say it in straightforward

Another is via article writing, pose a problem and give the solution, usually it's your services or
product that can remedy it.

Use .rss (really simple syndication) or .xml (extended markup language) in disseminating your
products/services, that way it will end up in thousands of rss or news aggregator already in the
computers of your prospects.

Creating an ebook and set in iframe or frame the url or web address you want to share to your
recipient, have him/her download the ebook from your site.

Screensavers can also contain your newsletter. Wallpapers can also contain your newsletter
messages. Sms go straight to their cellphonesl, or much better create a wap site in .wml (wireless
markup language)

Subscription- free newsletters are a way to increase your newsletter viewership without the need
to know the email address of a person where you intend it to be. I, myself, am using desktop
alerts - those small programs or applications that can be downloaded on your computer simply
fetching syndicated .rss or atom enabled site (example: ) To download a working functional demo or an
actual free desktop alert go over my site: and enjoy it anonymously and
for free.
