If you ever feel weird about selling to your list get ready because my guest this week is Jenna Doolittle.
Jenna is a career coach for actors and when the industry shut down overnight as much of the world went into quarantine, Jenna wanted a way to truly help the acting community access as many high-value free resources, classes and events online as they could.
So, she began curating a daily digest of the best resources for actors. Over time, Jenna’s newsletter evolved to a weekly digest that brings in a bit of ad revenue.
But Jenna needed a better way to monetize her newsletter without losing the original intention, essence or value of it.
In a private session together, Jenna and I came up with a pretty clever way to monetize her newsletter with Patreon. Which left Jenna with two questions.
How can I keep attracting subscribers to my newsletter?
Once someone subscribes, how can she convert them into loyal Patreon members?
That’s what we dig into during today’s episode. It’s a juicy one and I’m excited to share it with you.
