If you read our last post, you already understand the importance of a good newsletter. But, as a writer, I already know that sometimes the hardest part of writing can be coming up with a good idea.

That is why we have provided a post solely with content ideas for your newsletter. Let's begin!

· Company News

You may not think so, but your clients and customers are interested in short bits of news about your company and its people. They want to hear about your accolades and successes, since they have helped your achieve them. They are equally interested in reading about the expansion and development of your business, as they have contributed to that growth.

· Feature Product

A feature product or service column is a great way to profile new products or shine a light on existing products that you sell. Use this space to provide an image of the product, and list both benefits and features. Ensure that your feature product is reduced in price to encourage customers to visit your store and purchase it.

· Employee Profile

Just as readers are interested in your company, they are equally interested in the people who work at your company. Profiles of new or recognized employees help to build relationships, and establish trust. Your customers will connect the face on the newsletter, to the face that is helping them find what they are looking for, and ultimately close the sale.

· Cartoons

Cartoons in good humor that relate to your business or service can go a long way – literally. If readers find the image funny, there’s a good chance they’ll forward the newsletter to their friends and family, which means your message has a further reach. Using humor in your newsletter also helps to keep the tone light and informal, showing that you don’t take yourself too seriously.

· Testimonials / Stories

A box or column featuring testimonials of the month or a customer story can be an engaging element of your newsletter. People are naturally curious to read about others’ experiences and thoughts about consumer products and services. Testimonials are a great way for customers to hear the benefits and praises of your product from someone else.

· Events

If your business hosts regular customer events and seminars, include the pertinent information in your newsletter in a prominently featured events section. Alternately, if your business is an active community participant, consider featuring upcoming community events that you are either sponsoring or attending. Including this kind of information can encourage readers to hang on to the newsletter as a “save the date” piece. If you choose to feature community events, do so strategically. If you cannot include all community events, you may create a problem for yourself.

· Expert Corner (Internal or External)

This is one of the greatest added value components of your newsletter: your knowledge and expertise. If relevant to your business, include a column that provides information to your readers from an expert source: either you, or someone you have asked to contribute their knowledge. Doing so will position your company as an expert in your industry, and give your reader another reason to hang on to the newsletter. Keep the content relevant – both to your business and current events.

· Special Offers

A newsletter is a great way to inform your readers of special offers and sales. Always include the regular price, or total cost of a package, as well as a high quality image. If you do not regularly offer discounts, ensure the reader is aware that this is a rare event.
