A newsletter to help you become a better writer.

Any writers here?

Curious to know if this would be useful to you.

I just created a newsletter to help you become better every day. You'll get daily emails with a writing prompt and a selection of writing tools, interesting articles, tips to monetize your work, and learning opportunities.

As a writer, I know it can be tough to stay motivated - so see this as a daily dose of motivation, delivered in your inbox!

The first issue can be found here: https://www.getrevue.co/profile/dailywriter

Feedback welcome and much appreciated. Thank you!

        Sure thing!
        I'd love to learn more about email copy best practices / strategies. Specifically welcome emails for consumer apps for wellness (like Calm, Headspace, Strava, others), catchy subjective lines, catchy section sub-headers (there must be a cooler way to say "How it works"!), etc.
        Also, any thoughts about balancing succinctness / brevity vs. "sounding like a real human" -- this is something I struggle with. I often wonder if it's worth the extra 1-2 lines to say something really "real" vs. just cutting it to trim down on words.. then I end up with a somewhat basic / boring / standard email.
        Thanks a lot :)

          Sorry for the late reply! I hear you. I'll find some resources around that and write down some tips in the next few days!

            hey @alicia_sykes -
            super random question i'm on the fence about right now and thought you might be able to help! :)

            Question: for the CTA in an email, is it better to phrase the action to the reader as "Your" or "My"? To clarify a bit - the 2 options I am considering are either:

            1. "Meet Your Coach"
            2. "Meet My Coach"

            The context is that when the user clicks this CTA, theyre taken to a page where they see who their new coach is.

            So I'm wondering if in your opinion it is best practice to frame the CTAs as if the reader is thinking about it from their own perspective, or reading it as if someone (us) is talking to them?

            1. 2

              Meet Your Coach! In my opinion, it should always be about the reader, not about you - even if your blog post or e-book or whatever is based on your own experience, you need to try and make it about the reader. :)

            @aliciaskr no worries and sounds awesome! Thanks so much - can't wait to check it out.
