One of the main issues people have with putting out a monthly email is coming up with content on a regular basis. I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be original, just interesting!
Of course, original content is the most valuable but sharing something else can still be effective – think of those articles your mom or your aunt cut out of the paper for you!
Here are three ways you can save time and easily find content:
Google News Alerts
Sign up for Google News Alerts here, using any number of keywords you like. Set your preferences and Google will email you as often as you like with articles relating to your search. Tip: If you share your location, the results will be more targeted.
RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication. A site like Feedly helps by collecting all your sources in one place. It’ll take a few minutes to set up all the websites you’re interested in, but then Feedly will pull in all the headlines. Now you just have to visit one site for your content.
Sign up for industry email newsletters
I like to make things as easy as possible by having content delivered to me. Sign up for email lists relating to your industry or any other business who sends out interesting content, depending on what business you’re in and the sort of emails you send out.
