Of course, if you want to have a successful newsletter, you’ll have to give some quality content to your public. One great example of how quality content can bring you some loyal readers is WPmail.me.
Keep Up the Rhythm
WPmail.me is a free, weekly roundup of WordPress news from all over the web. It was founded by Cristian Dumitru Antohe and it’s not affiliated with WordPress. WPmail.me gets all the news regarding WordPress itself, news on popular themes as well as releases of new themes. WordPress plugins and tutorials are also included.
The success behind the WPmail.me newsletter lies in the frequency and the content of it. Many of you will send the first newsletter on some topic, the second one will be on schedule, the third will be a few days late and the fourth… No newsletter?
It takes some serious engagement to keep up with your newsletter schedule; you need to get some content for it, give it a great design, tell a story with it – your readers want the best quality content in their inboxes, right? Yes, newsletters are hard, but it can be done.
Be Ready For Your Opportunity
