I managed to acquire StartupLadder's first 10 subscribers from reaching out to college seniors and recent graduates on Linkedin! Overall feedback has been pretty positive as they seemed excited and grateful to have someone reach out to them to help with finding a job. I came across an article that explains how to search and filter through people by graduation dates on Linkedin, so am going to try this out to see whether I can make this process more efficient (since you got to do things that won't scale 😬).
I also sent out StartupLadder's first email newsletter last Thursday! Included newly added jobs and some spooky Halloween content 🧟
