Leverage the Power of EzineArticles Email Alerts

Get the article writing and marketing information you need delivered right to your inbox.

Email alerts are one of EzineArticles’ most powerful Member tools, yet many members fail to sign-up for these informative and timely notifications. These alerts can notify you of:

  • Newly Published Articles by your Chosen Categories
  • Newly Published Articles by your Chosen Author
  • New EzineArticles Blog Posts
  • The Latest EzineArticles Newsletter

Some of the Benefits of Email Alerts:

  • Stay Updated – Email alerts can notify you almost immediately about new EzineArticles features and changes that affect you.
  • Stay Informed – Receive tips on writing more articles in less time and advice on how to use all of the different author tools available.
  • Track Your Competition – By signing up to receive an email alert every time one of your competitors have an article published, you can find out what they’re doing and adjust your marketing strategy accordingly.
  • Improve Your Skills – By signing up to a category email alert, you can improve your own skills by getting the latest information from the experts in that particular niche.

With all these great potential benefits, there aren’t a lot of good reasons not to sign up for at least a few alerts. I think you’ll find it worthwhile to invest 4 minutes watching this video to discover just how easy it really is.

If you can’t find an author you like out of more than 250,000+ experts in over 600+ niche markets… perhaps you didn’t dig deep enough?

One way I like to dig into our site deeper is via the advanced search options:
Give it a try. :)

As for how to write an ebook? Sorry, that’s beyond the scope of our focus here in this blog. We’re focused on helping you write and submit articles that attract big gobs of high-value traffic BACK to your website where you then convert that traffic into new clients & opportunity.

What a great idea; I wasn’t aware of the alerts.

Saves searching to see what’s new, and what others are up to. :-)

Chris, it’s sneaky at its best being able to track your competitors movements. Good ideas for the us all to take on board.

I’m puzzled – I’ve signed up for this twice and I haven’t as yet had a single e-mailed notification?

Awesome tips here. I use email alerts on individual authors and RSS feeds in my categories of interest. I also have a subscribe to my articles button on my website now and I think it may increase my subscriptions as well. :)
