It seems like everyone and their dog has an email newsletter these days. If you go back and check the last 10 sites you visited, I bet at least half of them have a newsletter.

Is that a bad thing? No way ! While all the signup forms and popups you find online can be overwhelming, there are several reasons why so many sites want your email. 

Having a newsletter can help increase your brand awareness, foster deeper relationships with your followers, and even generate sales. And the best part is that creating and sending a newsletter doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. In fact, you can run a free newsletter quite easily.

Cómo crear contenido para tu newsletter de WordPress

Con tantos sitios compitiendo por los correos electrónicos de su audiencia, la mejor manera de diferenciar su boletín es entregando contenido valioso y sorprendente .

¡Es posible que ya tenga algo que quiera compartir con sus suscriptores de correo electrónico o que no tenga ni idea de lo que quiere enviar! Y eso está bien, estás empezando. Lo importante es que comprenda el impacto que tendrá tener un boletín informativo en su negocio.

Entonces, echemos un vistazo a 3 enfoques diferentes para el contenido de correo electrónico que podría enviar a sus suscriptores.

Para obtener más información sobre la creación de contenido para boletines, lea los 5 mejores consejos para ahorrar tiempo al crear contenido para boletines por correo electrónico .

1. Crear contenido original

If you want email to be the focus of your marketing strategy, it’s worth investing time and energy in writing original content for your newsletter. This approach will involve some planning, including deciding how often you want to send and send, creating a content calendar, but most importantly, working out what you want to share in each newsletter.

For small businesses, freelancers, and bloggers, you might share content that’s related to the work you do, such as:

  • Advice or tips
  • Short opinion pieces
  • Short essays
  • Case studies
  • Lists and links to helpful resources

You could even ask subscribers to send in their questions and you could pick one to answer in your next newsletter. The important thing is that you share valuable content with your email subscribers. After all, they’ve subscribed because they are interested in what you have to say!

If you get writer’s block and are stuck for content ideas, think about the challenges you’ve tackled this week and what you’ve learned. Is there an important lesson you’ve learned or a helpful resource you’ve come across that might help others?

Writing original content doesn’t have to be time-intensive. An hour or two a week is all you need, maybe longer when you’re starting out. Over time, you’ll get quicker as you send more newsletters and develop a routine. Think of it like writing a blog post or scheduling posts for social media.

When creating original content, don’t forget to consider your brand voice and tone—basically, your brand’s personality. For more, check out Why UX Writing Is a Thing Now.

Let’s take a look at an example of original content in a newsletter done well.

I’m a big fan of Kindred Word’s simple newsletter, which offers brief writing advice. Every time I open the newsletter, I know I’m in for some inspiring words.

Kindred Word E-Newsletter Example. Exemple de newsletter par e-mail Kindred Word.

Similarly, Austin Kleon’s weekly “10 things I thought worth sharing” newsletter is packed with creative links to get lost in.

Ejemplo de boletín electrónico de Austin Kleon. Example of Austin Kleon's email newsletter.

2. Creating a digest of existing content

If you regularly publish blog posts, a tried and true approach is to send a digest of your latest post (and even older ones from your archive).

Many sites use this approach with great success. The main advantage is that you can repurpose content you’ve already published and use it to drive traffic to your site. 

For users who don’t have the time to visit your blog regularly, getting a newsletter with all your new posts not only saves them time but helps keep your brand front of mind. Kind of like a friendly, “Hey! Remember me? Here are some posts you might like to read.”

For example, Kinsta sends out a weekly newsletter with links to latest blog posts published on their blog along with other useful links:

Ejemplo de boletín electrónico de Kinsta. Example of Kinsta's email newsletter.

3. Curating other people’s content

If you don’t have a blog and don’t have the time to write original content, why not share other people’s content? While this might sound like stealing, I can assure you it’s not. You might be surprised to discover many newsletters curate links to relevant content from around the web.

One of the many benefits of this approach is that it can help position you as an authority in your niche. While you may not be sharing your own original content, it shows you’ve got your finger on the pulse. Plus, it delivers value for time-poor subscribers who don’t have time to search for the links themselves and prefer to have them delivered in a timely newsletter format.

One of my favorite examples of this type of newsletter is NextDraft. Dave Pell, self-proclaimed “Managing Editor of the internet” reads about 75 news sites every day and picks the top 10 most fascinating stories, which he then shares in his daily newsletter.

3 free opt-in and newsletter subscription plugins for capturing subscriber emails

Building an email list can be difficult—especially when people don’t know your list exists! That’s why you need an opt-in form on your site. Newsletter subscription forms allow you to advertise the fact you have a newsletter and collect emails from your site visitors.

There are several types of opt-ins: pop-ups, slide-ins, bars, sidebars, and in-post opt-ins. No matter which type you use, the basic premise is simple: users can enter their email and sign up to join your list.

With the right opt-in plugin, you can create better converting opt-in forms for list building that grow your list faster. In fact, the average conversion rate for email opt-ins is 1.95%, according to Sumo. Not bad for a tool that works passively in the background collecting emails for you.

Here are three free WordPress plugins we’ve tested at MailPoet and recommend you check out.

1. Holler Box

Complemento de suscripción de Holler Box. Holler Box opt-in plugin.

Holler Box is a super simple freemium plugin that lets you add pop-ups and banners to your WordPress site. It’s lightweight and user-friendly, unlike other complex opt-in tools.

The free version comes with just enough features that you won’t need to upgrade unless you need to do some heavy-duty promotion on your site.

Features include:

  • Unlimited pop-ups.
  • Choose between notification box, pop-up or faux chat.
  • Choose between subtle notification bubble or lightbox popup.
  • Exit intent pop-ups.
  • Supports MailPoet, Mailchimp, ConvertKit, Drip, Active Campaign, or a custom form.
  • Limit to certain pages.
  • Time delay and scroll triggers.
  • Show to logged in/out and new or returning visitors.
  • Use shortcodes and WordPress content in your popups.
  • Conversion rate analytics.

  • Supports Ninja Forms, Gravity Forms, WPForms, and Contact Form 7.
  • eCommerce buy buttons.

2. Hustle

Complemento de suscripción de Hustle. Hustle opt-in plugin.

With 80,000+ active installations, Hustle is an email opt-in plugin that has quickly gained a following and hundreds of 5-star reviews on It’s easy to see why—it’s simple to get started creating eye-catching opt-in for your site, and then track and measure your results as visitors start filling out your form.

Hustle offers more advanced customizations than Holler Box, though it only lets you create pop-ups, slide-ins and in-line opt-ins. A user-friendly (and well-designed, I might add) wizard guides you through setup.

Features include:

  • Target visitors with a range of behaviors and conditions, including time-on-page, on-click, scroll, location, position, page, post, login, category, tag, referral link, and device type.
  • Target visitors with smart exit intent.
  • Integrates with popular email service providers, including AWeber, Mailchimp, ActiveCampaign, ConvertKit, SendinBlue and SendGrid.
  • Display social icons on your site and customize using floating social, widgets, and shortcodes.
  • Detailed analytics, including stats on how many times opt-in forms are displayed and submitted, as well as conversion rates.

3. Icegram

Complemento de suscripción de Icegram. Icegram opt-in plugin.

Icegram is another popular WordPress optin plugin and it has a ton of features. It’s a great option if you want to add more than just pop-ups to your site, including header and footer bars, toast notifications, and slide-ins.

Features include:

  • A collection of customizable and responsive theme designs
  • Integrates with popular email marketing services including MailChimp, Constant Contact, AWeber, Campaign Monitor, GetResponse, and InfusionSoft.
  • Unique headline generator that creates engaging headlines, giving your copywriting a head start.

2 free SMTP plugins for reliably and securely sending WordPress email

When sending emails from your WordPress site, you may have noticed issues with messages landing in spam folders. It’s an all-too-common (not to mention frustrating) problem that can usually be traced back to WordPress sending via PHP mail.

This is where setting up an SMTP plugin can help. An SMTP plugin can help you configure and send all your outgoing WordPress emails via an SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) server, completely bypassing PHP mail.

Note that MailPoet does send emails if you sign up to the free Starter plan so you don’t need to install an additional plugin.

Here are two free WordPress plugins we’ve tested and recommend.

Note: Don’t forget to read Top 3 SMTP Plugins for WordPress Compared (and How to Fix Emails Not Sending).

1. WP Mail SMTP

WP Mail SMTP plugin. WP Mail SMTP plugin.

With 1+ million active installations and a 4.5-star rating, WP Mail SMTP is the most popular free SMTP plugin for WordPress. What’s great about this plugin is its user-friendly setup and reliability.

To get started with WP Mail SMTP, all you need to do is install and activate the plugin, and then choose an SMTP service provider. SendInBlue is recommended (and free for up to 300 emails per day). Then you’ll be asked to enter an API for your chosen service. And that’s it—SMTP is installed on your WordPress site.

Features include:

  • Integrates with SendInBlue, MailGun, SendGrid, and Google (Gmail).
  • Set “from” email and “from” name.
  • Send test emails in HTML or plain text format.

2. Easy WP SMTP

Plug-in WP SMTP facile. Plug-in WP SMTP facile.

Easy WP SMTP offers no-frills SMTP configuration for your WordPress website. The simple settings page has all the options needed to connect to an SMTP provider.

You’ll need to find and sign up for an account with a third-party SMTP provider before using Easy WP SMTP since it doesn’t offer integrations with popular providers. It’s not complicated—you just need your SMTP host server, port number, and username and password—but it does mean taking extra steps to connect compared to WP Mail SMTP.

Features include:

  • Basic SMTP configuration options.
  • Set “from” email, “from” name, and reply-to address.
  • Debug log.
  • Send test emails.

Putting it all together

Now that you’ve got all the free plugins you need to get your newsletter up and running, here are some more tips.

  • There’s no “undo” button once you hit send to all your subscribers, so don’t forget to test your newsletter before sending it! That means previewing what it looks like on desktop and mobile. For more, check out our complete guide: 20 Best Tools for Testing Emails.
  • Creating and maintaining a regular sending schedule will ensure your subscribers know when to expect newsletters from you.

Why Do You Need a Newsletter?

Newsletters play an important role as a lead nurturing strategy. If you’re making all that effort into producing value-driven content on your site, it deserves to be read by your subscribers. Newsletters make sure that the right audience is finding your posts through email.

So if you want to ensure that your blog and site content is drawing recurring traffic, don’t ignore sending newsletters to your subscribers.

How Do You Create a Successful Newsletter?

Asking yourself how do I make my newsletter stand out? There are countless email marketing guides out there that have tons of great details on how to make a successful newsletter.

WPForms is the best WordPress Form Builder plugin. Get it for free!

Getting people to subscribe to your newsletter is just the beginning. You’ll want to do a little planning before you make your first successful newsletter.

Here are a few basic tips to get you started:

  • Define Your Audience — Ask yourself who your target audience is and what their needs are. If you don’t know yet, consider creating a survey form to find out.
  • Set Your Goals — Do you simply want more traffic? To engage readers? Are you gearing up for a seasonal sale? Once you decide what you want to get out of your email campaigns, you’ll be able to decide on what kind of content to create and send.
  • Choose the Frequency — Marketing emails can be annoying if sent too often. Decide how often you’ll be emailing your list, be it weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.
  • Gather Your Best Content — You don’t have to start from scratch with your newsletter. Make a list of your most helpful content from your site and build an editorial calendar around those posts to win over readers with your great advice.
  • Use Emojis in Subject Lines — If it matches your tone, try using emojis in your subject lines. Subject lines heavily impact your open rate, so give them a lot of love and research.
  • Write with Care — Regardless of if your email recipients are new leads or existing customers, your newsletter needs to be a well-crafted piece of content. Check for typos and use a conversational tone.
  • Use Calls to Action — Make sure your emails include Calls to Action. Meaning, ask the reader to do something such as clicking a link or button that says ‘Click here to get more details. CTAs are how you’ll convert readers into customers and bring them back to your website.

So now that you’ve got an idea of how to create a successful newsletter, let’s dive into our tutorial on how to create an email newsletter.

How to Create an Email Newsletter (Step by Step)

Step 1: Install and Setup Newsletter Plugin

On your WordPress dashboard, click on Plugins » Add New. Then type in “newsletter plugin” within the search field. You can choose any newsletter plugin of your choice, but we’re going to install Newsletter as shown below.

If you’d like more customization options when editing your forms, WPForms is a much better solution. In fact, you can integrate WPForms with The Newsletter Plugin if you upgrade the latter to the premium.

In the next step, you can perform some tests to make sure emails are sending properly from your site. Provide  test email address and click on Send a test message.

With this data, you can monitor how well different newsletters with different subject lines are actually performing. This is great for experimenting with and improving your subject lines for better open and clickthrough rates.
