Newsletters are a great way to inform others about specific topics, especially when those ‘others’ are people who specifically signed up to receive the news you’re sharing in the first place. Talk about a perfect audience.
Whether that be about world news, industry updates or local community businesses, newsletters are a proven way to quickly and effectively communicate with an already-interested audience.
Keyword: interested. Building a thorough newsletter email list may be a challenging task in the beginning, but the best way to grow that list is to ensure you’re sharing valuable, educational or entertaining information that will make others want to share it with friends, family, colleagues, coworkers or business partners (or their stellar Jones PR blog readers!).
Many newsletters I’m subscribed to are due to my utter and simple interest in the topic, but I tried my best to keep those to myself and tell you about the ones I think your inbox would enjoy receiving, too. ☺

If you’re a 20-something like me, you probably don’t read the physical newspaper, so in addition to getting your news from Tweets, subscribe to the Daily Chatter. This newsletter solely focuses on informing others of what is going on in the world. Charging their subscribers $20 annually for the newsletter, Daily Chatter supports independent journalism by offering content that is “uninfluenced by advertising and mainstream media.”
For my fellow social media gurus, Buffer’s social media newsletter is a must. This informative, fun-to-read email is full of information on the newest features for various digital platforms that help keep you on the edge of the latest trends, tools and tactics for all things social media.

Every bookworm should be subscribed to Shelf Awareness. Sharing recently published books every week, this newsletter will grow your bookshelf immensely. After subscribing, I recommend taking a few minutes to fill out a short survey about yourself and what kind of books you’re interested in so Shelf Awareness can separately send you books you’d be interested in hearing about.
