1400 Email Subscribers

In less than two weeks, another 100 subscribers joined the Bootstrapped Founder Newsletter.

Here are the stats: 1401 Subs, 51.24% open rate, 13.64% click rate.

Honestly, I haven't done much for growth other than the usual: I release an article every week, I recorded and publish a podcast episode, and I am very active on Twitter.

My last few weeks have been busy working with my editor on the book version of Zero to Sold, my bootstrapping guide. I'm looking forward to sharing that with my list once the book is all done, which I expect to happen at the end of June.

I added an email capture (with a free couple of chapters from the book) to the Zero to Sold page. That one has 53 subscribers. As I am not promoting that anywhere actively, those subscribers trickle in slowly.

Slow and steady is the theme for my audience. It seems to work pretty well, and I am in no rush. Here to stay :)

    Well, you have some good material there, and the word of mouth is doing things. That's how I heard about you and that's how I recommend to others.

    Keep up the good work
