My new email newsletter is another way to keep up with Sketchbook B
Since I started the 52 Shirts project, I’ve talked to many people about how they keep up with blogs and news. Most use social media, but I was surprised by how many people like to receive updates via email.
I wanted to create an email newsletter that was more letter and less newsletter. So each month, I’m going to write a letter to my subscribers and include links to recent shirt designs and blog posts at the end. I’ll probably include teasers for upcoming projects.
I'm calling it The Sketchbook B Letter. My plan is to send out the letter at the start of every month recapping the previous month and looking ahead to what’s coming up. You can take a look at the first newsletter for October 2017.
I’m using Mailchimp to run The Sketchbook B Letter. Honestly, using Mailchimp was a no-brainer. Sketchbook B is built on Squarespace, and they have direct integration with Mailchimp. Plus I’ve used Mailchimp for years at the day job, so I was already comfortable with the system. Getting set up was easy.
If you are looking for an easier way to keep up with my shirt project, or any of my other passion projects, consider subscribing to The Sketchbook B Letter.
Once you subscribe (and confirm your subscription with Mailchimp), you’ll get a copy of the current issue. And then look for the next issue at the beginning of next month.
I hope you like it.
