The Newsletter Crew podcast was started when I couldn’t find any podcasts on how to grow and professionally run my newsletter. In my frustration, I decided it’s time to fill the gap and help everyone out. There are awesome communities out there for newsletter creators, including the newsletter category on IndieHackers. There are no newsletter based podcasts that dive deep into how to build, run, and grow a newsletter based business.
I posted on IndieHackers a week or so ago asking if anyone was interested in being interviewed. Colin Bartlett responded first and showed interest. The first episode I interviewed him.
In this first episode, we dived deep into how Colin grew his newsletter by 1000 subscribers in one day with one simple trick. We’ll also cover why newsletter creators should build an audience first before monetizing. Colin co-founded VimTricks with his business partner Andy, we’ll take a look at how it’s like to run a newsletter business with a co-founder. I hope every listener takes away some useful information to grow and execute their newsletter.
