1K+ Newsletter Subscribers

Ali Salah @alollou

We just hit 1K subs of our newsletter today! Also today, we sent out our first newsletter ever :D

1K came with some difficulties though.. we needed to change our email newsletter provider from Buttondown to Mailjet. Buttondown was awesome, but it's $5/mo after 1K subs. Mailjet is free up to 6K, so it gave us a chance to have zero costs longer 💪

We tried to send our first newsletter earlier this week, but we were notified by friends that amazon affiliate links aren't allowed in emails. So we stopped the campaign, and sent a new version today to the rest of our subscribers.

Our next step is looking for newsletter sponsors.. Do you have suggestions on how to find a good one?

Thank you! 🤗
