History and Concept: Newsletter
On the Internet and in a book on Digital Marketing in Spanish, they title it as Newsletter, in our language, it is “Electronic Bulletin”. This way of communicating is not a very recent concept or technique.
Long before the Internet was born, the Newsletter technique already existed. Companies sent a letter by post to their customers and even people interested in their products and services. Although nowadays postal mail is also used but not much.
With the Age of Digital Information, the Newsletter is a potent tool that companies are using. But let’s see its concept.
A newsletter is a publication distributed regularly, focused on a central topic of interest to its subscribers. Many newsletters are published by clubs, societies, associations and businesses to provide information of interest to their members or employees on the same campus. Its extension is variable and can have several functions.
Suppose we approach it on a commercial level. In that case, the electronic or digital Newsletter distributes a message by email directed directly to the people who have voluntarily subscribed to receive this type of commercial message.
The Subscriber List is the people who have voluntarily registered to receive the business’s electronic newsletters because they are your clients or people interested in knowing more about the business, interested in the topic or following the company.
Spam: Bad Practice
It is essential to clarify that sending emails to an email list that has been purchased is an illegal technique called SPAM.
We never recommend our clients to buy email lists because it will NEVER generate positive results. It generates a hostile environment.
The money is on the list
It is a phrase that is known as “The Money Is In The List”. Partly it is true, but on the one hand, it is false. It is not always the case.
Let’s see why it is false. You can have a list of 1000 (thousand) subscribers, but 1% only open the email message or take any action because they are friends or family. They are not people interested in the business. Something is wrong.
Now, why do I say YES is true. A list of 100 subscribers, 80% open the emails, and 30% act according to the message they are sent. It is a success because the list is active; there is an excellent digital marketing plan.
Remember that the people who subscribe to your list receive information about your business; they even agree to receive your offers and discounts. Take advantage of this new opportunity to create direct and personal contact between your company and the person through email.

The Electronic Newsletter is a channel. If used correctly, we will build a relationship of trust and credibility with the subscriber. This person will sooner or later become a potential customer.
