Post List of newsletter ideas (Let's collaborate here)

Okay guys, so I think it would be cool to start a thread of nothing but newsletter ideas to write about. This will give people some ideas and it's a really good marketing tool if you can make a monthly newsletter. The hardest part isn't the writing about a subject, it's coming up with a subject while STAYING OFF OF THE REPAIR SUBJECT! No topics should pertain to something you do that makes you money. It should be helpful hints to do things they already do in their daily lives, but maybe there is a shortcut. For example, one heading could be:

Heading: Copy/Cut/Paste Simplified
Content: Here you could talk about the keyboard shortcuts that not everyone knows about, ctrl+x to cut, ctrl+c to copy, and ctrl+v to paste.

I'm sure this can be expanded out to at least a short 5 sentence paragraph to be a small part of your newsletter.

Here is my list of topics, short, I know, but that's why I'm looking to you all!
  • Viruses and the importance of a good A/V program
  • How to get a free anti-virus (provided you don't sell one)
  • How to defrag your computer
  • I can't think of anything else!!!!!!

I have also been looking at sending out a newletter and I was also struggling to decide on what content to put into it.

I had a few ideas such as:

- Tips of the Week/Month
- Latest Offers or Discounts your company is running
- Latest Computer News?
