          Hi Michael,

          Yes there are many free blog and newsletter applications. I use Microsoft Office Live Small Business as my platform, but there are so many alternatives such as Wordpress and Blogger.

          Content may be subject to copyright, but you can always find willing writers or pay a content service. However, if you are going to blog, then drawing on external content may defeat the purpose. I can see you might like to have an informative blog or newsletter, but ideally you would provide proprietary expertise in the field of your business and present it in a personal manner.

          Perhaps you might look into the emerging trend of content sharing and bookmarking. Addthis is a poplular app you can use to feed out or link in content. Microsoft blogs have a Trackback feature that allows others to blog about other blog entries with linked references.

          My advice is to do a lot more research on blogging and e-mail marketing before you dive in. A common first assumption is simply that these are good ideas for a business. However, there is a growing common sense that it may not be as so many small business startups offer poorly thought out attempts. If you know what you are doing, then this can be a nice value-add.

          Best,

                  Hi there,

                  You can take a look at my primary blog www.nascentdynamics.spaces.live.com . My solution for you might be somewhat different than my example. Since you mention "newsletter or blog" I want to ask you what you specifically want to accomplish.

                  Both have positive aspects that can be offered as a service to your target market. Newsletters are typically great ways to send people company news and information. The frequency distribution should be monthly if not longer. However, the production value requires a substantial effort. Blogging, on the other hand, allows you to produce content about you and your experience. While that could seem like a waste of time, it can be done easily, relatively frequently, and the production value is already there. It represents a body of work you can continuously refer to and forward to people you know will benefit.

                  What you may like to consider is utilizing a social networking platform. I recommend exploring and occasionally you will find a very professional production you can easily incorporate into your own model if you want. My preferred platform is Ning. My site is www.arealight.ning.com . I can talk to you much more about online social media there. We provide the environment, support, and a suite of services to help you optimize your online experience on a personal level, how to apply your professional skills in the most productive way for your goals, and to organize through others whether creating your own free Ning or coming up with an online strategy for your business.

                  Best,

                    There are tons of free ones out there you just have to find them. I dont blog anymore and havent for some time. However more and more people are going back to it and even if you spent a little money on it they benefits of using it for business purposes out way the negatives.

                      Mike the best blog is your own blog.

                      Do you currently have a web site I see you use Gmail which leads me to believe you don't.

                      The best way to promote your new business on the web is to build a meaningful ad word load site that will allow you to get high quality site rating by search engines.
                      One of the best ways to drive trafic and gain high ratings is to have a blog or message board attached to your site.
