I just started a curated newsletter about personal finance for millennials. Each issue includes 10 curated articles from various sources about investing, budgeting, paying off loans, and etc. I do not have any subscribers yet.
First, congratulations on launching your curated newsletter! That's an amazing step, and you should pat yourself on the back.
There are a few different tactics you can take to get people to subscribe to your newsletter. I recommend applying all of them and seeing what sticks.
1. Locking an enticing, enriching piece of content and requiring sign-up for access to the doc.
2. Engaging with your target audience on social media — consistency is key here.
3. Publishing for online magazines that fit your ideal reader to broaden your reach on wider platforms.
I would love to give you more insights about each of these tactics (especially the third). There are some definite "do's and don'ts" when pitching publications — I would be happy to offer you some insights during a call.
