Newsletters are hot right now! And so, being able to build an email newsletter business makes sense.
With the launch of Free Smoke last week, James, Oren, and Colin are all building email lists in different niches. Selfishly, they had to bring Jack Raines of Young Money onto the pod to talk all things writing, building email lists, and developing relationships for distribution. Jack and YMCMB are on a remarkable trajectory right now so he’s the perfect guest for an inaugural email list deep-dive on this topic.
