Play • 1 hr 11 min

This episode is one of those blueprint episodes where once you grab the notes and listen through, you’ll have a business model that you could implement either as a brand new one or model in your own niche if you want.  We’re talking with Russ Henneberry, who is the founder of The, a newsletter business with awesome open rates. Listen in as he gives us the play by play that goes into his business and how he’s got his advertising dialed in so he does not need a sales team. Russ has a huge history of content marketing in general and has worked for some really large companies doing a lot of interesting things. 

With his newsletter, he sends out a daily email to digital business owners and is able to monetize it through affiliate marketing and sponsorships. Most of his content is essentially curated that he finds around the web that is relevant to his subscribers. We really go into a lot of topics such as how to get better open rates with your emails, how to get better deliverability so they actually make it to the inbox as well as how Russ is able to locate the content to curate.  When you’re done, get some more advice about success with newsletters from our conversations with Doberman Dan and MaryEllen Tribby
