finally reached 1000 subscribers for https://eastvc.news/, so to share some info.
It took around 5 months from 0 to 1000.
80% of subscribers came from LinkedIn. I found that DMs work really well, most people are happy to check it and subscribe. Most subscribers are people who work within the VC industry. Twitter is probably also good, but since I don't have many followers not many subscribers came from there.
Since I reached 1000 subscribers, I decided to open it for sponsorships. Sold out next 4 weeks for advertising (max 1 ad per edition). This newsletter is probably one of the best ways for startups to present themselves to a larger VC audience.
In the meantime, I declined 2 offers to sell it.
