5 things I do so that every email newsletter I send performs WAY higher than industry average

Gather round hunnis, I’m about to drop some serious insider info and share a behind the scenes look at my biz numbers!

If you’ve ever wanted to creep my stats or see how another business owner approaches online marketing, then this is the blog post for you. I’ve got screenshots galore, pulled right from the back end of my email marketing platform.

Many people/businesses keep these numbers private (which is 100% fine and totally normal) but I’m all about being transparent and sharing this sort of information with my audience!

Disclaimer: I’m not an email marketing wizard or anything - far from it, actually - but I must be doing something right because my email newsletters consistently and dependably out-perform industry averages.

Also, it goes without saying that I’m not writing this blog post to pump my ego, to brag or show off for vanity reasons , duhhhhh!

Instead, I’m getting vulnerable and putting myself & my numbers out there for scrutiny in this area because online business (specifically web design/development and SEO consulting) is a relatively new career path and we’re all still trying to figure out how to do it successfully.

Think about it: many of us are solopreneurs or we run small businesses/teams, and there just aren’t that many opportunities to see how we compare to our peers, or have a benchmark to aim for if we’re still starting out - let alone know what’s normal and how our own numbers stack up!

So pull up a seat, pour yourself a glass of whatever tickles your fancy, and let’s dive right in!
