Debra Eckerling- #GoalChats on Newsletters with Andrea Hubbert

Here is a recap of Your Goal Guide author Debra Eckerling’s latest #GoalChatLive with Andrea Hubbert, video included!

Newsletters

This week on #GoalChatLive, I was joined by #GoalChat regular Andrea Hubbert, cofounder of The Solopreneur Society , to talk about Newsletters. We discussed the value of Newsletters, and touched on its role in the big picture of email marketing. When figuring out what information to send to your friends, fans, clients, and prospects, remember that your newsletter is all about them.

You – and your background, expertise, and experience – are your best resource. But you still need to build your email, and any communication, with your readers in mind. What articles, links, and deals will be most helpful to them? What will keep them as subscribers, customers, and advocates?

Sunday’s Twitter conversation was also filled with plenty of tips, tools, and links, from #GoalChat community on getting your newsletter together and out into the world. Consistency, professionalism, and personality were highlighted in both conversations.

Bonus Goal: Newsletters 

Whether or not you already have a newsletter, take a few minutes to brainstorm what would would like to create to share with your community. You can then take the best ideas and incorporate them into your newsletter … or use it as a starting point.

Final Thoughts

Most importantly, don’t overthink your newsletter. Just think it through. Create something you can and will send on a regular basis. Decide what categories of information you will include. Make sure it’s in your branding and voice, and you will be good to go.
