Advertising Networks Defined

What are advertising networks? They are companies that act as an intermediary between publishers and advertisers to create a meaningful and profitable advertising experience. They connect publishers that want to sell space in their newsletter with advertisers who want to pay for the space.

Depending on your business model as a publishers of an email newsletter, advertising revenue can be a major source of your income.

The Opportunity for Increased Revenues from Your Newsletter

Ads in emails are used by many publishers who want to monetize their newsletter. Email advertising revenue can be bread and butter for lots of companies. If you’ve worked hard to increase your subscriber list with thousands of subscribers, this is a big opportunity to at least consider. Further, if your newsletter subscribers are an audience demographic that an advertiser would want to target, even better opportunities are possible.

Although you may be reluctant to do so, you can make good money from your newsletter by allowing advertising in your email newsletters. In fact, it may create a whole new revenue stream for you, a stream that may pleasantly surprise you with results.

Also, don’t forget that readers expect to see advertising. It’s part of life. We get many quality newsletters ourselves that have ads in them, and we feel that the reader experience is not negatively impacted, especially if the advertisement is relevant.

Some Guidelines and Standards to Aspire To

There are some standards that should be met to maximize the earning potential. First, you should have a large enough email list. This should be over 2,500 subscribers, but having more than 10,000 will really help your monetizing potential. Second, ideally your open and click through rates should be average or above average. This is important, as it determines how many people click on the ads in your newsletter, and how much money you will ultimately make. See if your industry is listed below and if your newsletter compares to the industry standards.
