What is a newsletter?

A newsletter may refer to several different platforms: an email newsletter, a print (or digital) newsletter, or a newsletter subscription website.

An email newsletter is a daily and often weekly email sent to a list of email subscribers with links to your editorial content. A promotional email newsletter, which we refer to as a spotlight email, includes promotions for your publication and other services. For editorial email newsletters, we recommend designing it to be responsive using the email stack template.

A print (or digital) newsletter subscription is a weekly, monthly, or quarterly publication. It can be delivered through the postal mail and physically held, read, and paged through. A digital newsletter is read online, either through a PDF format, or a newsletter subscription website.

A newsletter subscription website is set up solely to sell subscriptions for a related print – or, even cheaper to produce, digital – newsletter. Often, the site also provides access to issues of the newsletter. A newsletter subscription website is commerce-based, with an overall objective of increasing product sales and providing customer service to existing subscribers. These sites are fairly simple: Usually the home page consists of a free area, with content that focuses on the benefits of becoming a subscriber to the related publication – a sales letter – and conversion architecture where a visitor can subscribe.

Some newsletter sites have a password-protected private area, where paid subscribers can view an HTML version of the current issue of the print or digital newsletter or download it in PDF format, as well as access and/or download back issues and other premium content. Like all premium models, a newsletter website is typically paired with an affinity (free) model like a portal or community which promotes the newsletter website.

No matter whether you’re just starting a subscription website or you already have one of the Internet’s successful subscription websites, you can learn and do more with your subscription website after you read my new FREE  handbook, Subscription Website Publishing: The Most Profitable Subscription Website Models.
