Resources & Advice

How to build your creative business with a newsletter?

Email newsletters are a piece of marketing that shouldn’t be ignored.

Why should you set up a newsletter?

  • Newsletters will help you stay in contact with your clients

  • Helps you build an audience to market your passive income stream

Every creative business (freelancer) needs to have a strategy game when it comes to acquiring clients. And we all know that in order to acquire one, we need to not only push the client to explore your portfolio (website), but also attract them to come back and make contact with you. You need to give them a reason (and remind them) to come back. Being able to send them helpful emails is the easiest way to re-target them to contact/respond to you!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, rather early this year, and we’re not mad at it! Last Christmas (we won’t be quoting any more Christmas songs, don’t worry) practically didn’t exist so this year has got us extra excited.
