700+ New Newsletter Subs Since Book Launch (=2265)

Since I launched my book Zero to Sold ten days ago, my blog visits and, subsequently, my newsletter signups have skyrocketed.

Before that day, I created a milestone every 100 new subscribers. Well, turns out I missed a few. Before the launch, I had just reached 1500 subscribers. The launch added over 700 new subscribers to the list, which is almost 50% growth in one week.

I am blown away.

Here are the stats: 2265 subscribers, 50%+ open rates

Of course, I will continue things just like I was before. It's just an amazing and frankly unexpected experience.
