If you’re interested in starting your own ezine, one resource you should check out is Alexandra Brown’s site:
She offers a free 45 minute audio class on starting an ezine, and free articles, weekly tips via email, and paid products.
According to her site, Mark Victor Hansen & Associates said she is one of the top ten direct marketers in the world, so you should definitely check out what she has to say.
The free article section alone looks like a goldmine to me.
I’m not an affiliate (yet) but perhaps I’ll sign up…her stuff looks like the real deal.
