A Newsletter, On Growth Hacking Newsletters.
"Can't hack it" isn't in our vocab.
We break down week by week the best hacks to scale your newsletter, in real time and reporting on our fails and wins.
This should be fun.
Whether you're looking to start a business, scale your offerings, sell a course, or become a NYTimes bestselling author, the single best way to do that is to grow a newsletter.
Why A Newsletter?
Because algorithms & platforms can't be trusted.
Whether it's Facebook, Amazon, Instagram, Twitter or Tik Tok if you build on their platform, they own your followers, you don't. Going back to their inception they have systematically been optimizing you to pay more, for less eyeballs. Anyone selling on Amazon, buying ads on Google of FB know what we are talking about. Not to mention they have a pesky habit of ya know, disappearing, like Snapchat, Myspace, and even AOL IM for you 90's babies.
Because you can create a community.
You're creating a following of people who want to hear from you. Who will be notified about what you're doing next straight in their inbox. Who can share with their friends and become evangelists. Brands are really just that, communities. Raving fans = higher profits, and multiples. You can grow customers by 40X more than social media, and sales by 333% with email. We think newsletters and email lists are the OG's that keep on giving, so does Andreessen Horowitz, which is why they dropped $15.3M on this newsletter platform we're on right now.
