Increasing the size of your newsletter subscriber list is a proven way to grow your audience and make more money from your business. But it’s all about attracting the right people using the right strategies. Below are 19 creative strategies you can use right now to pull in more subscribers for your newsletter.

1. Build a brand that offers value

No amount of email marketing and list building tactics can make up for a business model that is lacking in value. Based on one report, 40% of people who subscribe to your mailing list simply do so because they like your brand.

This means they find favor in the overall value proposition put forward by the brand, whether it is in the brand image portrayed, the way it interacts with the public, or the quality of the products and services offered (or, ideally, all of the above). As a result, emphasis should be placed on building a valuable brand before going down the rabbit hole of pursuing newsletter subscribers. …

There are countless WordPress themes available in the marketplace to help you create the website you want. Divi happens to be among the most popular, and for good reason.

Secondly, Divi has all the basics — along with a seemingly endless stock of features, customizations, and other bells and whistles — designed to meet the needs of various website designs. In addition, it is set at a price that is competitive when compared with other themes in its class. …

Shower Thoughts

Could the election of Joe Biden backfire on Democrats and essentially lead to 8* more years of Trump?

The 2020 Presidential election is just a few weeks away.

However, when discussing election outcomes, the media seems preoccupied with two scenarios:

  1. Trump loses the election (and by some more vivid accounts, refuses to leave the White House altogether); or
  2. Trump wins re-election (and the Trump-era “mania” continues for four more years).

While it’s true that Trump will either win or lose in the 2020 Presidential Election, there is a third scenario which I think many Americans are overlooking. …

Medium Writing Course

Hey everyone!

Just a friendly reminder that my Medium course launched October 12, 2020.

When I decided to make a course on Medium writing, my #1 goal was to produce a high quality guide at an affordable price.

When I started on Medium a few years ago, there were hardly any resources for new writers, or writers looking to increase their earnings. The only option was a $400 course which seemed crazy to me as a new writer!

As I built Medium Blogging Guide, I’ve tried to give away at least 99% of my best content for free. …
