    I am not sure if this is in the right place. I am working on my very first newsletter for my hobby business which I make soaps, bath salts, bubble bath and more and I am trying to work out what sort of things that I can put into a newsletter.

    I will be sending the newsletter out every 3 months

    Hi Heidi

    Keep your newsletter very small and tidy. Most people won’t read it – but if it’s just a couple of photos, a heading and a few lines of text – you’ll stand a much better chance of at least some people reading it.

    The sky really is the limit, although a few pieces of advice!

    Make it relevant
    Stay true to your brand values
    Don’t waffle on
    Make it about what your customer wants to hear, rather than what you want to say

    Good luck! :)

    I was also thinking of having a section ‘Ask the Editor’.

    I will be using mailchimp for my newsletter and have worked on a few ideas for my first one so far. I want to be able to give what the customer want in it

    And as you’re coming up with all these wonderful ideas for content (probably far too many for one newsletter) start a “work in progress” document – spread sheet or just Word – to record all these ideas for future newsletters.

    You may even find it easier to write up the different sections continuously throughout the 3 months, then it’s just a matter of putting each newsletter together.

    Best of luck !!

    You can include satisfied customer story who has used or bought your products.

    To share their experience and quality of your product and services.

    It will be great to include facebook and twiter links to get good coverage.

    I already have my facebook link on the newsletter. So have something like say ‘Customer’s Feedback’

    I wouldn’t even have the feedback under a heading, or grouped together.

    I’d have just the quotes in ” ” with their name after it and have two or three of them placed throughout the newsletter.

    That way the positive feedback feels like it’s just part of your business, something you get all the time, so there’s no need to separate it to make it special.

    Hope I’ve explained myself properly, it’s getting late and I’m tired lol

    I wouldn’t load it with too much information. People tend to have very short attention spans. Short, sharp copy is the way to go.
