This is my first post so I'd like to introduce myself.
My name is Bill and this forum was recommended as a place that might help me.
I currently produce an offline, printed newsletter for approx 700 retailers in the UK at a price £9.99 bringing in a revenue of around £7000 per month with sales from backend products.
This might sound impressive but bear in the mind the printing costs and postage etc. However, I still make a modest income.
I would like to reduce my costs and one of the ways I thought about doing this was to make the newsletter an electronic product instead.
I have just invested in Aweber which I heard was good and will do this for me.
However...and this is where I would really value your expertise, I would like to add an extra subscription based service for my customers by hosting a list building service for them in order to generate regular repeat business.
I produce a handout for them to give to their customers which encourages them join the retailers mailing list for exclusive special offers via an online list building form.
I will then send out a specified number of mailings for them each month for £25 (just an example).
However I don't know how to set this up.
Is there a program that would allow me to set up an opt-in list building form for each of my 700 clients where I would have full control and allow me to charge them a monthly fee?
I have done a Google search but I don't really know what I am asking for.
If any member currently does this or can recommend a service I would be most grateful.
PS. If I have not explained myself clearly or if you are confused about what I am asking for, please say so and I will try to clarify it. I won't be offended if you don't have a clue what I am on about
PPS. If you have any further suggestions on where I could take this business to another level I would be appreciate it very much.
