You should first work on developing an "opt-in" email list via online and offline giveaways and promotions, plus have a e-newsletter subscription form hosted on your website so customers can easily register to receive your e-newsletter. Ask existing clients for their e-mail address and permission to add them to your e-newsletter subscription list. Do NOT use third-party e-mail lists that are considered spam and could get your website blacklisted from ISP's.
Create and broadcast e-newsletters every month or at least every 2 months. You can mention new product offerings, special offers, giveaways, tips and tricks, new hires, among other pertinent information. Keep it short and sweet and always place the full story on your website and link viewers to the web page. This can assist your overall SEO strategy since it will be recognized by search engines.
