Should You Launch a Newsletter?


It probably feels a little ironic that we’re talking about newsletters in our newsletter, but go along with us for a minute, O.K.?

Not only has publishing this newsletter been fun (and yes, it’s been work too), but it’s also driving results for our business.

Since the first thing in our content framework in the planner is to start with your business goals, we knew that if we wanted to launch a newsletter it had to support our business goals as well.

This has far exceeded our goals and expectations.

We’re excited about where we’re taking this newsletter and the plans we have for it (publication on Medium and a referral program).

If you’ve been thinking about doing a newsletter for your brand and business, we’re here to tell you that NOW is the best time to start.

Happy Creating,
Jodi & Kim

Nothing beats content that comes from inspiration.

This week’s podcast episode was inspired because of something that I see over and over again in the online marketing space.

People get excited about possibilities and new projects but either never make it to the finish line and pull the trigger OR… they publish/sell what they’ve created and then it goes back on the shelf.

Finishing what you start goes beyond pushing your creation out into the world.

It’s about what you do once it’s out in the world. Marketing, driving traffic, analyzing what worked, what didn’t work…

Hopefully, this will inspire you to give your creations the time and energy they deserve after you hit publish.
