I am looking for someone to design a customizable newsletter for my real estate business, I need something that is editorial worthy,creative and readable for people. I want something that is not canned or contrived, something that is a true newsletter for my clients and new membership. It's a real estate newsletter however it can have all sorts of information in there for people.
I'll most likely input in the data each month or week, so it should be in a format that is usable for me and easy to edit! Thanks... also, I use [url removed, login to view] which has some prebuilt templates
In a nutshell, an HTML newsletter is a web page that is transmitted via some email broadcasting service. Because this format incorporates graphics and color, HTML newsletters are more attention-getting than plain text newsletters. Overall, when compared to a plain text newsletter, HTML newsletters:
--Have a higher click-through rate (more readers click on the links contained within your newsletter that link back to your site, affiliate program, or sales offers)
--Permit you to track your open rate (determine how many readers actually open your email newsletter)
--Help you continue to establish your brand in front of your readers, as it may carry the same look as your website or other marketing materials you may use
--Are read more often than plain text newsletters because of the eye-catching graphics
3. Create your newsletter template. Your template will probably be a simple table format that incorporates your logo and a few other graphics. Your newsletter should not exceed 600 pixels in width, as you want to ensure that your readers won't have to scroll across the screen to read your newsletter. And, in the case of HTML newsletter, size does matter. A newsletter that is large in size (greater than 25 MB) is tough to deliver through many email systems. Less than 20 KB is optimal for greatest chance of delivery to your subscribers.
4. Link all graphics to the full graphic URL. In order for an image to display, it must be hosted on a website. Some distribution programs, like Constant Contact, will host images on their server. However, if you're creating your email newsletter from scratch, you need to tell the newsletter distribution program the full URL that will help it locate the image. So, for example, in your website design program, you might see an image URL listed as ...images/yourimage.jpg. In an email newsletter, the full path of the image URL needs to be indicated, as in [url removed, login to view] in order for the image to display. So, be sure that any images your paste into your newsletter are also uploaded to your website, and check to see that the full URL for the image is listed in the image properties of your graphic. If you need an FTP program to help you upload images or pages to your hosting account, I recommend CuteFTP.com.
