This may sound like a no-brainer but you need to have a very CLEAR intention why you need to setup an E-zine. Many start an Internet business without knowing what or why they are heading into it (like holding a small candle walking around in a dark room). Therefore the most important tool you will need more than any machine or software – is the sheer desire to succeed at all costs.
The next thing you will definitely need is a business plan. Knowing the reason why isn?t enough. Your business plan will be your blueprint that you will use to build your business around it.
Remember, those who fail to plan, plan to fail. If you don?t have an idea what sort of market you are going to target, for example, a hot hungry market where people are willing to part with their money for your product and services, your E-zine would be pointless.
After you have your business plan cleared out, you need to have the basic computer tools that you will need to start off the right foot.
You will need a domain name, web hosting, a good autoresponder and list management software.
In addition to that, you need content. So that means lots and lots of content to get started. Why is relevant content important? Because you need to spend hours of research when you start out on your first E-zine campaign. You must have content that you can use to play around with, tweak your E-zine and cross reference with or else you don?t stand a chance against the competition outside.
Learn to separate your content into manageable chunks. Don?t try and dump all your content in one e-mail – it is quite stupid because people generally hate reading long e-mails and the purpose of the e-mail is to pre-sell, not SELL!
With a domain name and web hosting, you are ready to start your website. Decide the theme for your website that provides a synergy that works well with your business plan and you need to get to work immediately.
