What you’ll learn
Day One: How to build a regular writing habit
We know that one of the hardest things about starting a newsletter is… actually starting. So the idea here is to remove as many barriers as possible. Readers will learn how to set a rhythm and the importance of getting started — even if that’s just to send your first issue to yourself and a buddy.
Day Two: Get settled into Revue
We get it. It can be daunting sitting down with a new interface. The aim of day two is to orientate readers within Revue and help them make the most of the tools at their disposal, from handy curation features to an easy editor to a beautiful profile page.
Day Three: How to promote your newsletter
To state the obvious, promotion isn’t as easy as buying a lead ad and sitting back with a cup of tea. In day three, we’ll guide you through the process of getting your newsletter out there — and that starts with finding your niche and knowing your audience. From there, we’ll give you some pointers on how to build a strategy that fits with your audience to help you grow your subscriber list.
Day Four: How to make money with Revue
No matter what your newsletter is about, there’s probably a way to optimize it to create income — as long as you’ve found your niche and you know what value you bring to your readers. Here, we’ll guide you through how to set a business model, the practical process of setting up a paid newsletter, and how to manage your audience after you’ve made that jump.
Day Five: How to send and share your first issue
The final day of the course is all about sending your first issue. We know that most readers will likely still be tinkering with their draft as the week draws to a close, and this step is all about the adrenaline rush of sending your newsletter out into the world. We’ll emphasize the importance of a proof-reading step, and show you how to share the issue automatically on social media.
