    Looks like you don't talk about the newsletter itself but about the welcome email.

    Get on Warrior Paul Myers's newsletter Talkbiz - he's
    one of the most lucid communicators in the
    Internet Marketing community.

    Writing a good newsletter can be a LOT of work.
    Don't kid yourself.

    People won't read unless it's well-done and doing
    it well means sweating the details.

    If you just want an autoresponder series to sell something
    that's different.

    Dan Kennedy emphasizes offline newsletter publishing
    for all kinds of service businesses. It's worth looking into
    how that is done too.

    Here are my best tips:

    1. Give them what they signed up to receive

    If you promised SEO tips, don't start sending them information on how to get a mortgage, for example.

    2. Be yourself, and be honest

    Treat your subscribers as you'd like to be treated. Write as if you were speaking to one person.

    3. Stick to your schedule, and if you're changing it let subscribers know

    Once a week, once a month, every day... You train your subscribers what to expect from you. Be consistent.

    Remember that a subscriber may be on your list for many issues before he buys anything you're selling.

    4. See your ezine as the central hub of your business

    A good ezine takes time and effort. However, it can be a literal gold mine as your subscriber list grows.

    Project: imagine what your ezine will be like (and how it will impact your business) when you have 5,000 subscribers, 10,000 subscribers...

    Good luck with it. :-)

    Cheers

    As others mentioned here, make sure you are providing high quality to your readers, and giving them something that they want.

    I'd suggest writing in a way that draws people in, and gets them to look forward to your next email. Drop little nuggets at the end of each message about something compelling regarding the next email in the series.

    Yes, I would definitely suggest signing up for other newsletters in your niche, and seeing how they are doing it as well.
