A brand new name and look for e-marketing-news!.
Preparing the way for the launch of:
I launched e-marketing-news back in September
of 2002. It was a pretty hurried launch. You see, I started
taking subscriptions for it at my eBook site in 2001. Now, I
did this because everyone had an internet marketing newsletter.
So I had to have one too.
One day, in August 2002, I received an email from someone telling
me that, they had subscribed to the newsletter but hadn't received
the current edition. The reason? There was no current edition.
In fact, there were no editions at all. E-marketing-news was
something I was going to get around to eventually. The subscriptions
pop-up was just running on autopilot and I never really checked
the list. So, after receiving that email, I did.
There were over three thousand email addresses in the database!
As you can imagine, there was smoke coming from keyboard as
I rushed to put the first edition together. The subscription
list continued to grow and grow and the newsletter got bigger
In mid 2005 I mailed out the last e-marketing news. Due to
my ClickZ deadlines creeping up on me at every last minute and
my hectic travel schedule I simply couldn't find the time to
publish anymore. So it just petered out.
However, the site continues to get tons of traffic and recently,
I checked the list again. This time, there's close to 20,000
