Sent my first newsletter

Slava Korolev @korolvs

Wow, this is quite... terrifying — sending an email to a bunch of people I don't personally know.
Even if there are less than 50 of them.
Even if they agreed to it (with double opt-in sign up 😃)

But eventually, it is pleasantly terrifying, because I'm sending good news — now you can easily customize colors and fonts while using simplegoals.co

You can take a look at email here: https://mailchi.mp/f43c9de5bf8b/customize-simplegoals-to-fit-your-brand

    I remember this as well, I just launched a newsletter on responsible investment (https://nossa.capital/) - about 6 weeks in and each week as the subscribers grow more and more pressure to make sure I am sending quality content!

    I'll never forget first e-mail I sent out to a group of subscribers over ~100 people. You're spot on - terrifyingly pleasant to be able to reach out to that many people with a click of the button.

    The gif on the email is pretty cool, what the CTR?

      Thanks!
      Open rate is 60% and click rate is 10% so far, which is quite cool for me 😃

    This is just the beginning.
    I also dod the same a couple of days ago, it was just the thank you for subscribe, at the moment to 7 users........of colorsandfonts.com

    It has to feel amazing to send update email.
    I also used Mailchimp and Postcards by designmodo.
