    Welcome to Business Advice Forum Andrew, thanks for joining and posting your questions.

    A newsletter can be a very effective way to connect with your contacts and to remind them that you are still available should they need your products or services. When sending newsletters it's important that you don't make them too promotional in nature, i.e. ensure that the newsletters contain content or news that your contacts will find useful. Also, don't send them out too frequently or some of your readers may start to un-subscribe.

    You could consider some of the following reputable services for your newsletter management;
    http://www.mailchimp.com/
    constantcontact.com
    http://www.aweber.com/

    I haven't personally used a CRM system myself but I'd suggest that the providers below would be good places to start;

    http://www.sugarforge.org/content/open-source/
    http://www.vtiger.com/

    You can also find good solutions here on SourceForge.

    Good luck with it!

    Newsletter are surely a very good way of connecting with your customers. With newsletter you can keep your customer updated about new things and make them remember that you're still out there so whenever they need something they come to you. There are several web-based newsletter management companies which you can try as guided by Fergal above. I've been using Aweber since a long time and I'm very happy with them. There are certain other companies which you can try like MailChimp, GetResponse and several others. If you're just starting out and don't have much client then MailChimp would be a good solution and also it is free for certain number of subscribers.

    If i donot have registered users on my website. but if some one purchases millions of emails or already have. So sending newsletter to all those emails is beneficial or not for traffic and for seo?

    And another thing. If hosting donot allow to send emails to thousands and millions of people at once but allowed some range in every hour. The above services you people written can do so or not. As i never use them.

    Personally I wouldn't recommend doing that, as those emails would be unsolicited and considered spam. In my post above I was referring to keeping in touch with existing contacts who have expressed an interest in your business, newsletter or contacts.

    The services I linked to above also have very strict policies when it comes to unsolicited emails / spam. They provide different plans and the more advanced the plan the more emails you can send, but obviously the more advanced plans are more expensive.
