Finding Contents For Email

I plan to email my subscribers once a day,so I will need a lot of valuable content. Where exactly would I find them? What are some good places to go to? I mean, I can probably come up with a lot of information from my personal experience, but that's a very limited amount and I will need a lot more fresh content.

I also see people sending motivational emails and emails similar to those that aren't related to the main topic. Do you do any of that? How useful is it?

What type of emails do you send besides those that are content based or only related to your category?

    Hey dcwwg,
    I know it can be overwhelming at first. But you would be surprised if you look at your personal experiences, opinions, family life, relationships, your IM story, day to day activities of your Life etc..etc.. well you would be surprised how far that can take you in creating a hell of a lot of Content for your Emails.

    People love stories. This is how we Connect. And you must connect with your List.

    I would strongly advise against hiring someone to create your emails.

    Remember, just get 30 done and just recycle the best ones with highest Open rates and Conversions

    I usually unsubscribe from lists that send me emails every single day - no matter how informative and valuable.

    Most of the subscribers do the same.

    Why you have to send your list an email every single day? I don't know your niche. Maybe you are in the current affairs niche then it sounds pretty much OK to do it, but I'd never do it in IM niche.

    The list will get saturated pretty soon.

    Secondly, your list will not buy from you rather they will expect content and only content from you.

    And as you pointed, it will really get hard in the long-run to send them valuable content every day.

    It is better to send 2-3 emails a week and as I know most of the gurus out there do the same.

      if you email everyday then you need to make it clear when they sign up that you are emailing everyday, so they are conditioned to receive them daily. People are raking it in mailing every day, others do not mail every day maybe a few times per week and are making loads of money, Both ways work.

    I'd recommend every other day if not every three days. You need to be thinking about some very high quality PLR to serve as a launching point. You'll need to rewrite this, but if can serve a purpose when you're in a 'writer's block mode' Also, you don't have to be a master copywriter, or even a good writer. If you speak whatever is on your mind at the moment, as well as tie into recent events, times of the year etc. then you showing an identity. email marketing is difficult these days if you don't have/aren't developing a relationship.

    There are many good sources as another has mentioned Warriors For Hire is Good, also you can do a google search for content creators. Fiverr is always a good option as well, the key thing is to look at their feedback first. Content isn't that expensive. But of course it all depends who you hire you want the best bang for your buck.

    Personally I like to get inspiration for content from magazines. For example, if you're in the muscle building niche then take a look at the magazine covers for some of the popular ones and you'll get plenty of ideas.

    The other thing to do is get inspiration of blogs or authority sites in your niche.

    Lastly you can also subscribe to email list of other authority figures in your niche and see what they talk about and use that for inspiration.

    Hope that helps.

      make sure you email content is related to your niche, but plr articles are a good choice for quality content. If you are working with smartlists keep you email message short and sweet.

    Surveying your list or having your list ask questions can spark content ideas. Sometimes from a single consulting session, I can get 3-4 email ideas. I agree with what others have said as well...emailing every day may be a bit much and if your list KNOWS you'll email every day, they're less likely to open it. No bueno! I recommend toying around with what will work for you and your goals.....more content doesn't necessarily mean better...and your audience knows that.

    Side note: Add personal stories..that will keep them entertained. Having great content is good but people want to know you're a real person too. Good luck!

    A source for content can be forums in your niche (to figure out what problems they have, and so forth), other people's articles (to see what other experts are doing, saying, helping) and try to make something better & more useful.

    Yahoo Answers works same like forums...

    E.g. If you go to ezinearticles.com you can find plenty of articles in your niche with really useful information, grabbing a tip or two from each one and compile them with your own twist as something new (plus reading article titles can be a source of inspiration for new ideas as well).

    Good copywriting extends to your headline and email subject line

    One last thing to bear in mind is that your copywriting efforts extend to the subject line of your newsletter that appears in the recipient’s inbox as well as the headline you give the newsletter itself.

    You can read more about inbox subject lines but for now it’s enough to remind you that before a recipient can read the text in the message, they have to choose to open it in the first place. It doesn’t matter how good your copywriting in your message is if your subject line isn’t interesting enough to make anyone. In fact, many would argue that the text you will use in your subject line is at least as important as what’s in the actual body of the message.

    Do it yourself or as mentioned above hire someone.

    If you do it yourself you can do simple searches in google to find relevant content but if you do hire someone you can hire here on warrior forum or just find a freelancer. Make sure that the content is relevant and helps your audience.
