Best Marketing Newsletters to Make You Smarter

If you’re a digital marketer, then you know that staying up-to-date on the latest marketing news and trends is essential to your success. Clients and colleagues alike expect you to be the one who’s on top of it all, and these newsletter will you help you do just that.

Isn’t email a bit… old school?

The first email was sent in 1971, before most digital marketers were even born. And can you guess the content? Nope, it wasn’t about viagra, fake lotteries or even Amazon discounts. The email read ‘QWERTYUIOP’. Yep, pretty profound.

And while there were stories throughout the 2010s about social media and messaging killing off email, it never came to pass, simply because we need a central inbox for boring stuff like receipts, two-factor authentication and the general admin of adult life. Granted, your average 15-year-old isn’t spending much time in their email inbox, but most adults do look at email regularly and the user numbers continue to grow. And so, if you can get a spot there, you’re grabbing a big slice of someone’s attention instead of competing among the noise and chaos of an endless social media or video feed.

What’s in a good newsletter?

With the resurgence of email as a way to receive original writing and digests, we’ve seen a variety of formats emerge. Some send daily, weekly or monthly. They tend to contain a mix of articles, tips, resources, links and other information. By subscribing to newsletters that serve your niche you can very precisely tune into what interests you. Each edition of your average newsletter tends to be crammed with a lot of content as well as links to more stuff.  Newsletters are a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in your industry and learn from the best minds in the business.

Anyway… Get your email address ready! 👩‍💻
