Surpassed a big triple 0 milestone, just barely last night.
This influx of new subscribers is directly attributed to Facebook Ads, and a Referral program I set up (using Sparkloop) as well as launching a massive Content Marketing piece.
I launched on Friday Influence 100: The 100 Most Influential People In Influencer Marketing.
My newsletter covers the influencer marketing industry. In fact I curated the list from people who have been featured in my newsletter. I feature 15 ish articles per week. Roughly speaking that's at least 1,000 people featured, writing, profiled, quoted, listed. And from those I determined, who had more outsized impact.
There's no math involved. It was truly my own assessment, as well as 20 advisors I asked to look over the list and suggest changes.
So far 5,100 page views in the past 3 days. In the next week I estimate the 100 list will account for 200 new subscribers. IF my subscribers only go up 100 this week, then it didn't work. IF I have more than 200 subscribers. then it's from this.
While I had the audacious goal of 5,000 subscribers by the end of the year, I estimate it will be 4,200 since I'll have unsubscribes and there will be a slow down come Dec 15th until the first week of Jan.
