#12: Grow from 0 to 1000 Newsletter Subscribers

I have a goal 👇🏼

To grow my newsletter from 50 to 1000 subscribers with $0 ad budget before the year ends.

Here's my no-secret game plan.

1. Have a consistent promotion plan for the newsletter.

I can mimic the following creators' tried-and-tested tactics and how they promote their newsletters through socials.

2. Encourage newsletter subscriber referrals.

One of the tactics Morning Brew and The Newsette used to grow their newsletters to millions of subscribers is rewarding subscriber referrals. Thinking of trying this out soon!

3. Cross-promote with other creators of adjacent topics.

I'll be collaborating with other creators so we can promote one another's choice of platform: YouTube channel, newsletter, or podcast. The Dream 100 list would be my best friend when executing this tactic.
