So. Every article I read about having a successful web presence of any meaningful size always starts with, “Have a newsletter. Collect email addresses.”
I’ve never done that. It is a glaring omission in my strategy. There’s many reasons for that, but most end up in that vicious cycle of “Unless I specifically plan to sell you something, I can’t incur the cost of paying for such a service.”
Well, today after stumbling across a free (we’ll see about that) option, I figure let’s try an experiment. If you’re interested in what a Shakespeare Geek newsletter might be all about, please come over to the blog and sign up. I don’t really know what the newsletter will involve, I’ll be honest. It’ll depend on how many people sign up.
Over at the top of the left-hand column you should see a new “Follow Shakespeare Geek by Email” widget, where you can enter your email address (and then confirm by clicking on a welcome email). If for some reason that widget is not working or you don’t see it, please click here to go directly to the subscribe page. Thanks!
I’m relying on you folks to let me know the demand for this feature. If I see a bunch of people sign up right off the bat, I’ll know it’s something you’ve been wanting. If I have to beg and kick and scream, well, everything will balance out – I won’t go killing myself to deliver content via that channel. It’s up to you.
