About This Class

Join newsletter publisher Zachary Kyra-Derksen as he shares his experience and advice on picking an email newsletter topic for fun and profit. It’s essential knowledge for anyone who wants to start a profitable, location independent newsletter business.

A note from Zachary…

I’ve been fortunate to be able to build a profitable newsletter about Elon Musk, which I sold to Inside a year and a half after starting it. Based on this experience I really believe that building an email newsletter is a great option for anyone who wants a location independent online business with low capital costs.

I see email as the original social network. It’s still a great way to build and engage an audience - much better than any social media platform.

I currently operate two Facebook pages with 300K+ followers and an Instagram account with 65K+ followers. A newsletter with this number of subscribers would have both exponentially more engagement and earning potential in comparison with these social media accounts.

One of the best things about a newsletter business is that you own the audience, and an algorithm will never reduce your reach. There are also more ways to earn money from a newsletter than a social media account.

With this Skillshare class, I start at square 1 of building a profitable and fun newsletter business. I follow the lean startup methodology and will show you step by step how to generate ideas for your newsletter, how to shortlist ideas, how to test for profitability, and how to find out if anyone will actually subscribe to your newsletter. I look forward to seeing you in class!

To your success,

Zachary Kyra-Derksen
