10 Classic E-zine Advertising Tips

by Ken Hill

1. Target your advertising.

The more targeted the e-zine is for your offer, the greater
your response will be for your proven ad.

2. Track your ads.

Don't leave your ad campaigns to guesswork. Use ad tracking
to show you exactly which e-zines and ads are most
profitable.

3. Run your ad for multiple issues.

You'll get a better response, and possibly save money as
many publishers offer special deals on bulk advertising.

4. Spend lots of time writing your headline.

An effective headline will successfully grab your reader's
attention and target your audience.

Your winning headline will also get people to read the rest
of your ad, leading to more traffic and sales.

5. Don't try to sell your product from your ad.

Write your ads to create interest and get people to visit
your site.

From here, your powerful sales page will do the selling for
you, and you'll be able to get people to join your e-zine or
mailing list for successful follow up.

6. Don't use all caps in your headline.

You'll appear like your yelling at your reader, and your ad
will come off as amateurish.

7. Include a "call to action."

At the end of your e-zine ads, include a call to action that
tells your reader what you want them to do next (i.e., visit
your site or subscribe to your e-zine).

8. Don't be cute or funny with your ad.

You might put your reader in a good mood, but don't count on
that translating into more visits to your site or more
sales.

9. Offer something for free.

Provide an incentive for visiting your site such as a free
ebook, sample chapter, or trial.

10. Subscribe to or view the archives of the e-zines you
would like to advertise in.

You'll be able to see the quality of the content provided,
how many ads are published in each issue, and you'll get a
good idea of the products those readers are interested in by
the ads being run.
