what to DO
Have shareable links so that readers can send the content or the entire newsletter
directly from the newsletter to others and social media (NOT forwarding), or send
this link to get your friends to subscribe- link.
Sign your emails from a person, not a business. "Send your welcome from a person, not from
a business account. We’ve found this tactic to be especially effective when the sender is the
founder of the business or someone with an established audience. Use a photo of that
person and not your company logo to help the email stand out." -TechCrunch
Have a sample of your newsletter for potential subscribers to view before they do- but make
Make your content digestiable and in small bites size pieces.
what NOT to do
Provide too many calls-to-action or links.
Too long of subjects or headlines within the newsletter.

Run a social media poll on our stories asking what people's fav part of the newsletter is so we can
rearrange it if needed.
See how many people on our socials are involved in the newsletter by taking a poll to see who is
signed up and who reads them weekly.
Take weekly screen recordings, scrolling through the newsletter and posting to our stories so that
people might see something that catches their eye and go check it out.
Mini campaign: Post an official post on our feed about our newsletter similar to when we did a
post about our calendar and say that if they sign up for the newsletter and/or share the post to
their stories, walls, etc. we can maybe give 2 people free SheHustles/GRIT/Event/etc. tickets?
