“The whole point is to have a list that is reaching people who are actually interested in what it is you have to say…. So the gurus can say whatever the heck they want. Bottom line is, just be consistent. But choose what that means for you. If it's a monthly email newsletter because you only really have something relevant to say once a month, cool.” - Tammey Grable-Woodford
The daunting task of crafting and sending effective email newsletters stirs doubt - and maybe even a touch of commitment phobia. Are they worth it? Will they make me any money? Who should I send to anyway? Do people actually read email newsletters anymore? … Maybe I should just skip them altogether and focus on social media. That’s more up-to-date anyway… isn’t it? Before you give up the future cash on the email newsletter table (that’s totally a thing), soak up the wisdom Tammey Grable-Woodford dispensed in this episode.

As podcast editors, we were particularly interested in one of the main areas of Tammey’s expertise: sales and marketing. Finding new clients, securing contracts, and retaining clients are always high on the priority list of any podcast business.
