Few days ago I hit my biggest milestone so far.
I got 100 subscribers to my newsletter Engineering Growth, without using any ads or paid promotion. It took me 6 months and an article a week to get here
My open rate is 48%, I'm not tracking the clicks so I don't have any data on that :)
This is huge for me, as I got massive growth only last month. My growth is a sign that doing things with no ads and annoying promotion still has it's place in this oversaturated digital world.
