Opened Mailchimp this morning and saw that StartupLadder has 104 email subscribers for the weekly email newsletter I send out every Thursday!
The majority of subscribers have been acquired through Linkedin (connecting with college seniors and recent grads and messaging them about StartupLadder). I've also shared StartupLadder in a few Slack channels for startup communities as well as various "Class of 2020" Facebook groups.
I know that manually reaching out to individuals isn't a sustainable way to grow a subscriber base, so have been brainstorming other ways I could potentially scale. Do you guys have any suggestions/ideas?
