HTML Newsletter Software: Nvu
Nvu (pronounced “n-view”) is a popular free HTML design software that is very good for creating web pages and also HTML newsletters. You can add graphics, colors, create tables, and do many more cool things with your newsletter design.
A great thing about Nvu is that it’s a WYSIWYG editor (i.e. “What You See Is What You Get”), which means you don’t need to know even a single code of HTML because you can easily create your pages using the visual features in this program.
Text Newsletter Software: NotePad
NotePad is a very easy to use program that is available on any version Microsoft Windows. You can easily find it in your Start Menu. NotePad is perfect for creating your plain text newsletter.
Now some people write their newsletter in MS Word or WordPad, then copy and paste it into their email program, and send out to their list of subscribers.
But there’s a big problem here. You see, when you create your newsletter in MS Word, there are some automatic characters placed in your text that are not compatible with “plain text” emails.
So you will end up sending a newsletter to your subscribers that is full of strange invalid characters, which will hurt your credibility and professional image.
So make sure you use a “plain text” editing software (e.g. NotePad) when creating your newsletter.
