A lot can be said for industry newsletters. Or not even industry, just in general NEWSLETTERS. You know, those annoying emails you get every single day that are filled with usually worthless information? Well, I’m here to tell you that there are a select handful out there that aren’t a waste of time or inbox space.
And if I’m being totally honest?
I sound intelligent in conversation half the time thanks to what I scroll through and read in those newsletters every morning.
They’re a great and easily digested way to stay on top of news, and given how fast the news cycle is these days it keeps you from getting pulled down the rabbit hole of Twitter or any other type of social media. And/or falling for “fake news” which I am also guilty of! No shame in my game lol.
So, how do you know which newsletters are actually worth signing up for? I got you. The below are ones that I ACTUALLY GET sent to my inbox and I never “auto-archive” them for the sake of missing news that is relevant to my day job as a PR girl.
For those of you that don’t know, hi.
I work as a PR girl in the cosmetics industry.
Welcome to the party.
Back to the point, give these newsletters a try if you’re looking for a way to keep up with news without cluttering your inbox. Another tip I can give you if you’re a fan of “inbox zero” is to set up a separate email account JUST for subscriptions.
That way, you have one for personal notes, one for work stuff, and one just for subscriptions.
If you ever want to disconnect from that part of the world, all you gotta do is uninstall that email inbox from your phone. Bam. Problem solved without a lot of hoops to jump through!
That’s it. That’s all you’re going to need and you’re going to be on TOP OF YOUR GAME. I’m sure if I tried I could recommend a few others but to be honest with you…after awhile all newsletters stop adding value and instead add clutter.
That’s why I don’t put out a newsletter of my own right now. I just don’t have enough unique content that I feel is worth cramming in your inbox on a weekly basis, *shrug. Anyone, any blogger, who claims otherwise is probably lying to you (unless they’re food bloggers. Man, those people NEVER run out of recipes to throw your way!!!)
OKOKOK people, what did I miss?
Any newsletters that YOU love that I should get on my radar?
