I’ve been getting the podcasts transcribed. Most of them are in. I could sell the transcripts, and maybe I will.
In the meantime, I’m going to start sending some out to newsletter subscribers. (Enter your email address below to subscribe for free.)
Which ones? Post a comment and tell me!
Newsletters and lists get a bad name. Let’s talk about that.
I don’t affiliate market to my newsletter.
I use Mail Chimp rather than aWeber or some other spam software, and Mail Chimp won’t even send out affiliate promotions.
I use the newsletter to let you know when new posts are available (although I don’t send a newsletter out each time a new post is up).
I use the newsletter to solicit your input, which is why the 20 Rules for Your 20s series has been such a success. In fact, the widely read 47 Life Tips from an Afghanistan Vet and Airborne Infantry Soldier was a response to my newsletter. Yep, I didn’t edit it or anything. That was just an amazing piece by a subscriber who wanted to give back. (The same was true of these 15 Tips.)
The newsletter data is helping me write the book. I A/B test everything. This gives me a statistical, data-driven basis to know what people want to see.
If you’re using Gmail, check your promotions folder.
For some reason my newsletters end up in your promotions box. (I’ve read the posts that say how to avoid this. My luck is 50-50 even following those tips.)
Anyhow, if you want free stuff, subscribe to my newsletter.
