If you’ve been a reader of this blog for a while, you may not have noticed a new feature there in the right column: The YFNCG Newsletter.
Even if you did notice it, you may not have felt compelled to sign-up. You may already have signed up to receive blog updates via email or RSS. However, those are simply ways to syndicate existing blog posts. The YFNCG Newsletter is different. It’s a way for me to connect with you more directly and more personally.
So if you’re on the fence about signing up, here are a few compelling reasons why you should.
Although this blog is still pretty personal, in the newsletter, you get more from-the-trenches stories from me. You’ll also hear the details about my own personal journey from computer business dreamer to running my own full time business. I don’t mind sharing these personal details in my newsletter because I know that the people who sign up for it want to hear it. Readers of this blog come from all over the net, so I sometimes hold back my personal stuff. Not in the newsletter.
Not only that, but you have an opportunity to respond to every email, and I reply to every email I receive from readers. It’s a more private and direct way to contact me than blog post comments.
I tend to use this blog as a grand experiment. I play around with different topics to write about. Sometime I’ll go off on tangents. Sometimes those tangents will work, sometimes they don’t. With the newsletter, I pull all the disparate posts on this blog together and tie them up into a nicely organized package.
For example, I just finished an email to my subscribers about Social Media. I’ve written a lot about social media on this blog, but I haven’t brought it all together in one cohesive lesson. I also let my readers in on what tools I use to streamline my social media use so that I only spend about an hour a week on it. This is a trick that I have not discussed on the blog, it’s only for my newsletter readers.
You like to save money don’t you? Me too. And I use the newsletter to pass along any discounts I come across on products that I find useful. Email is the best vehicle for these types of announcements because they are normally limited in time or quantity.
An example of this is the Computer Business Kit version 2. I needed time to evaluate it properly for my review on the blog. But the creator was offering a limited time 20% discount on the kit, so I shot an email to the newsletter subscribers to let them know about it. This is something I will continue to do for my newsletter folks.
If there are any major changes or updates that I want to announce about my business or my blog, the folks on my mailing list are going to be the first to hear about them. I’ll also ask for their opinions on certain ideas I might have for this website. So if you want to be a part of the future of YFNCG, the newsletter club is the place to be!
I know how busy running a computer business can be, so you’ll only receive anywhere from 1 to 3 emails a month from me. You have nothing to loose and I promise it will be worth your time!
