At his core, Case is a writer and creator, whether it’s through his podcast, newsletter, or products. He’s built his career on creating compelling writing.

In this episode Case talks about:

  • Why email is the best way to connect with customers/clients.
  • What kind of voice and content you should use in you emails.
  • How to get started with a cold email list and how to figure out the strategy around monetizing it.

Main Takeaways

  • You own an email list, it’s not going anywhere and your communication can’t be hampered by third parties like Google’s SEO.
  • Approach your email list as a way to converse instead of announce. You will have better conversion rates because people view it as more personal.
  • If you have an email list you’re not using, send some emails to warm it up. Ask your readers what they want to see and strategize your content from there.
  • To connect with your audience, you need to be honest and real. People don’t want clones of big email marketing lists, they want content they can connect with.
