The email newsletter is the most powerful tool I have to drive sales in my business. Push send on an email and I can (usually) bet on a few sales coming in. But I still see the majority of business owners overlooking this powerful communication tool. Why? I suppose part of the reason is that social media is talked about more often today. It’s a newer, more exciting way to communicate and gets more coverage in the press.

Not surprisingly, when we interview founders that sell direct to consumer, email marketing is one found to be one of the best ways to drive sales. Take for example our interview with the flavored water company Hydrant that went from doing $40k in sales to $2 million in just a couple years. One of the most effective marketing tips they shared was to use an email newsletter to encourage repeat purchases. And repeat customer orders is the name of the game.

Hydrant uses an email marketing newsletter to increase repeat sales.

Not only does a newsletter let you to communicate directly with your customers, it can be used to ask for a sale. A recent study by e-commerce software firm found email marketing can convert sales at 4.24%, as opposed to only 2.49% from search engines and less than 0.6% from social media. Not to mention, most of your followers on social media don’t end up seeing your status updates at all unless they are boosted.

I can speak from experience when I say that investing in a good email newsletter is worth your time and effort. I manage a newsletter with over 40,000 active subscribers.  Nearly 100% of the sales for books or our premium community join the newsletter before they buy.

In this post, I’ll share a bunch of newsletter name ideas that aren’t boring. An appealing newsletter name is extremely important to encourage readers to signup. The ideal name can be little bit sexy, out of the ordinary, or offer some type of unique value. These examples are the best newsletter names I could come up with.

Value bomb: Stick around to the end of the post, I’ll share some of my most practical tips for getting people to join your newsletter. Including freebies you can use to increase your signups fast. Let’s do this!

B2B Newsletter Name Ideas

I run a B2B newsletter in the food business space.

While a business can benefit from its own internal newsletter, knowing what is going on in the business world is just as important. If you’re selling products or services to other businesses, publishing a newsletter that offers practical advice that solves your customers problems is always a good approach.

A few common pain points in other business: technology implementation, sales, marketing, payroll, HR, and hiring in a remote world. Having a Business to Business (B2B) newsletter can help other businesses understand the market trends or provide annual market research in their own area of business too. If you do this thing right, you can offer a lot of value and build trust with readers.

How to Start a Newsletter Business

hands

Don’t worry… You won’t need to get your hands dirty to get started.

So you want to start a newsletter? As mentioned earlier I have an email list of 40,000+ active readers so I can share some guidance on the topic based on my personal experience.

First, I wouldn’t get too stressed out about the technology you use to publish your newsletter. There are dozens of email service providers that allow you to setup and send newsletters. Pick a major one that provides appealing email templates and move on.

If your goal is to make money from a newsletter, you’ve got to think about what you have to sell and who might want your product. So for example, if you have a stock investing course, you’ll want to build an email list filled of people that are interested in investing. If you have a weight-loss product, find people interested in getting fit.

It’s critical that your newsletter content matches what you plan to sell. I’ve learned this lesson the hard way on a few occasions. One time, I tried to sell a restaurant startup course. The problem is most of the readers on my list wanted to start a food truck business, not a restaurant. It was a total flop that I think only two people signed up for.

When people say an email newsletter didn’t work this is usually the reason why… they didn’t send out the newsletter long enough. I don’t have any hard data to back this up, but I’d bet 8 out of 10 most newsletters don’t go beyond issue #10. Businesses send out a couple emails, they don’t get any sales and they think a newsletter won’t work in their market.

Getting people to sign up for your newsletter

You need to give people a specific reason to sign up for your newsletter. No one wants more emails so you’ve got to come up with something specific.

If your current idea is to offer a weekly newsletter giving away “free tips” you’re pretty much destined to fail. No one wants more free tips. You need to get more specific than that. Here’s what’s worked for me.

  • A business kit. Offering a free free startup kit is a terrific way to encourage readers to join your list. I do this all the time. Once readers subscribe make sure you send some really good stuff. Ideas include a stock investing kit, a meal planning kit, or a business idea kit. Get creative!
  • Offer audio or video lesson. If you’ve been podcasting or doing videos for awhile, offer people a free lesson on a certain subject. Make sure it’s a lesson that people are actually interested in. I repurpose my podcast interviews all the time and make people sign up for them as bonuses. It works well!
  • Challenge: This is all the rage right now. Create some type of a 7 day or 14 day challenge and take people through the challenge each day. Challenges could include doing a certain number of pushups each day. Maybe it’s a goal planning challenge that’s always popular around the first of the year. As long as they are good, people will sign up for these events.

The email newsletter is a marketing approach that takes time to figure out. I’m still figuring it out myself and I’ve been doing it for over half a decade. If you want to give it a real go, commit to test sending one newsletter a week, on the same day, for one year. This will give you the time to find out what your readers respond best to and find your unique voice in the process.

With all of this complete, you have the foundation you need to come up with a catchy newsletter name that people will actually want to sign up for. Remember to keep sending the newsletters regularly to maintain your subscriber and reader base. Persistence is the key here! You probably won’t hit a home run on your first at bat.

Here’s another good article I found on the subject of making money from a newsletter. I think it was helpful if you want to go deeper on this subject and I agree with the perspective.
