    Excellent, I was looking for something along the lines of this. I was wondering, do you think newsletters are still an great way of marketing online? Does anybody still use them well and actually acquire readers?

      I have a very content rich and lite on ads newsletter that gets me a 2% boost in traffic when I send it out. I think the success is based on the average age of your recipients. Younger people seem to love newsletters, but my audience skews older. Hope that helps?
