Thanks CampSteve for your brilliant instight (as usual). No, I wouldn`t pretend to know about the history of poster design nor would I insult those who do by trying to put out the information. But this is not what this idea is about. Let`s say you own a drycleaners and you decide you would like to put up a website and try to draw in some local business. You call a local website guru who does just that. You`re now online. The website guru sends you a newsletter every month with marketing articles, articles about how to get the most from Google, search engine strategies, etc. General stuff that may would interest him. Its a general web marketing newsletter, full color, 8 pages, (or an ezine) and its branded with the website guru`s logo and contact information. Here`s the business model. The newsletter was written by me. I sell it to the website guru on a per month subscription basis AND I sell it to 100 other website gurus to give to their customers.
Here are a few more ideas...
Real Estate agent-General home improvement, design, how to newsletters for homeowners
Car dealerships- General car maintainance and car care
Dentists-General tooth care, problems
Landscapers-Gardening and landscaping tips
And on and on and on it goes...
It`s not meant to be an indepth look and an industry like most "newsletters: are but more of a general information "brochure" that keeps the website guru`s name in front of the customer while giving helpful tips and advice
However, if the website guru were to write this newsletter every week he would spend a lot of time (which equals money) doing it. By purchasing it from me he only spends a few dollars a month.
This model is actually already being done but the newsletters look like crap and you know (better than most)that people like beautiful color and design and they love that "poster smell and feel`.
You may ask just how I intend to write all these articles? I don`t intend to write them all. I will have writers do that on a per article basis.
