Does this sound like you?
You are tired of the hacking and hustling culture.
You want to build a profitable newsletter but are not sure what to focus on.
You struggle to come up with things to write about and share on social media.
You want to build a business but hate being seen as too pushy or salesy.
You don’t want to rely on ads and sponsorships to monetize your newsletter.
You are not sure how to use your newsletter to promote your products or services.
You often overthink, leading to doing nothing at all.
It feels like everyone else is doing better than you.
Does it feel like you are the only one who doesn't have it figured out? That's not the case. The eight points above are the most common struggles I hear from newsletter owners!
Let's fix it!
How do you build a newsletter that will last?
You know your newsletter has the potential to take your business to the next level and make it a stable source of income. You know it, because you see the success stories proving it every day online.You have the knowledge and the idea of what you want to say. It’s just… hard to know where to start, right? And you don’t want to end up down the road realizing you picked the wrong route.Everyone is giving you different tips, hacks, and tactics. Which ones do you pick, and how do you know if they work?
Hint; It is not by selling ads and sponsorships...
Thanks to the last few years' hype, selling ads seems like the Golden Goose of the newsletter world. A money-printing machine where you turn on the faucet - and earn thousands of dollars every month.For a short period of time, this was almost true. But that is changing.Before you can even start reaching out to sponsors, you need 1000s of subscribers. And you'll be constantly fighting over ad money with newsletters with more subscribers and higher open rates.There is better way!
