There are a lot of aspects that have to be considered to when writing a Professional Newsletter that will get your readers interested in your offerings. Here we have laid out some important tips in writing a Professional Newsletter.

Last Updated - 15th September 2005

Design Scannable Newsletters

Make the text easy to scan by:

using short paragraphs
using bullet points
including plenty of white spacing between topics
highlighting topics with uppercase or bold text in HTML newsletters

Insert Line Breaks

Improve the readability of your newsletter by formatting it with hard line breaks at 60/65/70 characters per line. You can use a text editor, such as TextPad, and set it to insert hard carriage returns at the end of each 65-character line.

Include Newsletter Title In The Subject Field

Include your newsletter title at the beginning of the subject field. This will help the reader differentiate your newsletter from junk e-mails. It will also allow them to filter your newsletter into a separate folder with the use of filters.

Make Your Subject Field Sell!

Advertise the most enticing story of each issue in the subject field. You literally have seconds to grab the readers attention, so make it count.

Include A Table Of Content

Include a table of contents at the top of the newsletter. This will allow readers to scan the topics to see if anything in the newsletter catches their interest.

Fix Long Links

Long hyperlinks may be broken when you format e-mails using hard line breaks at 60/65/70 characters per line.

To fix this problem, deselect word wrap after you have inserted the carriage returns. Then manually edit the links to ensure they are on one line. When the e-mail is sent, a link may still wrap onto two lines. But now it will be clickable.

Avoid Spam Filters That Flag The "Unsubscribe" Word

Do not use the word "unsubscribe" in your removal notice. A number of spam filters flag e-mails containing that particular word as possible spam. The reason is many spammers now offer "unsubscribe" functions that don't actually do anything.

Avoid Spam Filters That Flag Chain Letters

Some spam filters are flagging e-mails that asks readers to forward the newsletter on as chain letters.

Avoid using the word "forward" and any of the following words in the same sentence, "all, anyone, every, friends, many, others, people." Instead of "forward," try using "pass," "share," or "send."

Reduce Remove Request E-mails

There are two methods to reducing the number of remove e-mail requests from your subscribers:

Include a removal notice at the top and bottom of the e-mail
Place the bottom removal request at the very bottom of the e-mail, rather than a few paragraphs from the bottom.

Design User-friendly HTML Newsletters

Most people use an 800x600 screen resolution, but the e-mail preview pane is usually much smaller than the full screen. So format your HTML table widths at 500-600 pixels at the most. Better still, use a relative (percentage) width table, which will allow your newsletter to be resized when viewed in different sized windows.

Create AOL Friendly HTML Newsletters

AOL try to protect their users by eliminating potential security hazards. As such, AOL e-mail clients do not support the following HTML objects:

External Style Sheets
Frames and IFrames
Meta Refresh
Scripts: JavaScript, Perl, VBScript, etc.
In addition, the following HTML tags are the only ones supported by AOL e-mail clients:

Big: Big
Body: Body
Bold: B
Break: BR
Center: Center
Font: Font
Header: H1, H2, H3
Hyperlink: A
Italics: I
Paragraph: P
Small: Small
Strong: Strong
Subscript: Sub
Underline: U

Include AOL Clickable Links

AOL users can't click standard hyperlinks or e-mail links. For links to work in AOL e-mail clients, you must format them using HTML. This is why you sometimes see both standard and HTML formatted links.

For example:
<a href="">AOL Link</a>
<a href="">AOL Users Click Here</a>
<a href=""></a>

Spell Check Your Writing

Always spell check your newsletter. Text editors, such as TextPad, include a spell check function.

Alternatively, check your spelling using, a free online spell checker.
