If your clients used Macs there would be no problem using pdfs of your document, but most people use PCs and Windows which only show the pdfs as attachments, that they ahve to click on to open.
The kind of mail newsletter you are talking about are created in html. Pages is not the tool for this.
You need a html/CSS Editor, or use MailChimp or similar service.

Apple Mail stationery via third party templates, or custom development is another possibility. The latter isn't for beginners, and is made more palatable by the use of commercial tools like Mail Designer Pro. Apple Mail stationery embeds the graphical elements into the e-mail, rather than a dependence on those images hosted on a remote server.
Yesterday, I composed an email with Apple Mail stationery, and sent it to a peer, who received it in Outlook Web App (OWA). This was on a 2010 Exchange Server. The e-mail appeared in the Microsoft mail user agent just as intended by my original composition within Apple Mail.
I also tested the “Send Contents of This Page” feature from Safari 6 on Lion (10.7.5) that opened an Apple Mail composition window with the web page displayed. I prepended the page content with a short message and sent it on to OWA with similar results to above. On Mountain Lion, the equivalent would be the Sharing icon on the Safari toolbar that contains ”Email this Page.”
Caveat. There is no assurance that all e-mail clients will embrace Apple Mail stationery, or any HTML e-mail composition with equal compatibility.
