    Hey guys, If I were to have a blog about a certain topic and also a newsletter to send out to a list, how would I distinguish between what kind of content to put in each. What is the difference in a blog post and a news letter? Or, what should one say about their topic in a newsletter that hasn't already been said on a blog?

    Usually, people will only read newsletter once so you want to use it to inform them on the latest news that is happening at the moment or going to happen. You can also discuss special tips that you didn't publish on your blog in the newsletter. This will motivate people to read your newsletter.

    Thanks for the response. Good point. So you are saying just short time sensitive updates and personalized content for the newsletter, and more in-depth content for the blog? regarding Special tips, how do you decide what goes into a newsletter or what to put in a blog post?

    News Letter is just as News from Paper, TV, ADS etc. and the message should be trending at that time. A blog post can be viewed at any time by a reader, so I preferred to you blog post is better than News letter. However NEwsletters can bring traffic when the news is released on the day..
    It usually depends upon the content you are writing, can you specify what products you want to promote?

    Thanks for the reply. What is the difference between a newsletter or a scheduled email that you send your list with the intention of eventually making a sales offer? The latter is what I am actually more interested in doing. Is there a big difference?

    A newsletter is informative to people, you can put in prominent contents on your blog so readers can access it, when they receive the newsletter, and newsletters can also stand as advertisement and reminders for your blog, so both can go hand in hand.

    Blog is a place where you will have the entire content and newsletter contains links along with a short teaser or summary. Newsletter is a guide for the readers so that they understand what to expect in the blog. Newsletter can contain full length article, but most of the time it only features few articles.

    Blog posts may contain detailed description of a product, travel, experience or hobby. It is subjective and it is usually use to entice people by making thing sound easy and fun. Newsletters on the other hand entail facts and the latest happenings in a company, place or organization.

    @butterfly@butterfly : I am sure you meant to say by sending out newsletter to the people who are associated with your blog for some reasons. (readers/authors/subscribers, etc, )

    A blogpost is something that you publish on your blog and that has more reaches than to a newsletter. A blogpost should be very informative, catchy and in detailed about covering the topic.

    A newsletter is something that you send to people one by one. Writing a newsletter means writing something that don't let your user go off after a few lines but engage them to read thoroughly and so you can be more productive to supply the information you want to with the help of newsletter.

    A blogpost is visible to everyone that will be a static, however you can make a customer newsletter for someone specific.

    Blog Content should be better than email content. we can use maximum links in blog content but not in email. if you are using links in email content then definitely you are going to spam folder.

    In any case blog content is better than Email content. Blog content is the place where you can mention the small summery about your service, product and business. And you can put more than one link also. so its better for traffic generation.

    Blog content help you to increase traffic on website. Email content help you do the same but you can also do it from home. Blog content is real time action. Email content may take time to increase traffic.
