~10% conversion rate.

These are the reports from the email newsletter. Notice the reddit traffic. I think it’s actually higher than 26%. I spent time last night and this morning doing some reddit pumping.

I posted the links to the /r/NYC subreddit. This is a good target because the group is localized and self selected. I got 12 signups in the process.

Apart from reddit, I tweeted the link to the landing page on my publicartfound twitter account.

Feedback from a friend said that the link was not very informative. This is unintentional. It reflects the lack of clarity I had when first making the newsletter.

This is one of my favorite services. I use this after I write blog posts, to cross check the ‘readability’. This tells you where your sentences can be rewritten. Its available online for free and now there is a 5$ application that can be used off-line.

Highly recommended.

email newsletter promotion

I created a email newsletter for graffiti lovers in NYC. Im promoting the newsletters landing page on Twitter and Reddit. I used reddit’s /r/nyc subreddit to geotarget my audience.

Im still searching out my idea, so the newsletter is a good way to flush out my audience. I will promote this as a stand alone product and manually curate the content. I expect this to be an enjoyable process.

Per Gary’s suggestion, this isnt just a look-at-cool-stuff email. This will be a way to test out tangential ideas, such as restaurants/coffee shops to checkout in nearby places, stores worth seeing, and specific routes worth taking. If people like the process, I will keep trying new ideas.

At the time of writing this, I have 13 subscribers.

Once upon a time, I was interested in a domain name. Of course, it was already taken. And by Jonathan Harris, no less (one of my all-time design heroes and an overall massively impressive human being). Eventually, I worked up the courage to ask if he’d be willing to part with that domain. He…

I want to talk and compare an app that most of you don’t have access to: Facebook Mentions and compare it to the Pages App that anyone who has a Facebook page can download and use.

I found out about Facebook Mentions from a banner ad that was at the top of my Facebook account earlier this week…

Pre-kickstarter promotion

http://democracyos.org/

They are launching a kickstarter and use their landing page to gather email addresses. When they launch, I assume they will blast out the emails. Seems like a good technique to utilize all the attention they get.
