Think it through: do you need or you don’t need an email newsletter?
You need to think about this and if you decide that an email newsletter isn’t the right thing for your business, then don’t be afraid to let your employers and bosses know that.
If you’re not sure about this, what you need is a little research. Check some successful newsletters and see what;s there, compare it to yours and see the similarities and differences. Think about the time, budget and internal support you need for creating the perfect newsletter for your business.
Keep in mind the business goals as well. What are they? Retaining more customers? Closing more and more deals? Improving the skills of the salespeople or increasing the leads number?

Gather data from the business, create plans and agendas, organize and everything and work hard on it.
Think also about the type of newsletter that you want to create
People have said it already, the worst email newsletters are the ones that are cluttered, unfocused, and try to support every aspect of the business they are promoting so in the end they turn out to be a mess. Every email, no matter if it is a newsletter or something else, needs a common thread that will hold everything together.
One way for improving this is choosing one topic and making the whole newsletter around that specific topic.
Make the newsletter 10% promotional and 90% educational
The subscribers don’t want to read about your business or your products through the whole newsletter. Don’t rely too much on self-promotion and try to insert parts about some educational and relevant information. Promote yourself, your business and your company only when you have some big news and announcements to make.
