Hello,

I continue here the thread I posted to "Making Money".

I've just launched a newsletter for my Commerce-2000.

Now I have 12 subscribers.

Can you suggest me some way to obtain more subscribers? Have I to post my Newsletter in any site?

Thanks,

Nic

Hi nicbos,

Well, for newsletters...

You were given some suggestions about making a pop-up - this makes sure your users know about your mailing list... if not this, definately place it in a prominent position. You'll need to do javascript to accomplish this. The problem is that you might end up annoying your users... I personally am not a fan of popups... ideally, you should set a cookie so the same person doesn't see it more than once... otherwise, they'll get annoyed when coming to your site... not great to encourage repeat traffic.

Otherwise, you can try to increase incentives to join... contests, special information that available on the website... that sort of thing.

I'm not sure about posting to other sites... if your newsletter has a specific topic - like an ezine, this might work... if it's a general site newsletter, it might not be that appealing to people on other sites.

Thanks for your interest,

yes, it is an e-zine with specific topic: the latest news to the best shopping on line resources.......

do you know where may i post a note to announce it?

I also don't like much pop-ups windows, but setting cookie to not stress return visitors it is a good idea......can you help me suggesting a site where i may grab code?

Thanks for all

Nic
