How to Start a LinkedIn Newsletter
Do you believe in “newsletter magic”?
Actually, it’s a phrase I made up…
Because, time after time, when my clients send a newsletter to everyone they know – and keep it going…
They “magically” get clients and projects they’re excited about.
For example, Dawn Mitchell, one of my SMP members, just hit her business goal - and it’s only March!
She attributes her success to her email newsletter.
Watch this video to find out how her newsletter helped her land a big client:

After we recorded this video, Dawn shared that the "big client" hired her part-time, and they LOVE the value that she adds to their team!
Plus, with work coming in from two more new clients, it means she has the power to succeed on her own — which is especially important now that she is newly single.
Way to spin that "newsletter magic," Dawn!
Now, if you're ready to generate some magic of your own...
All you need is a LinkedIn account. (You have that, right?)
It’s really simple.
Here’s how to start a LinkedIn Newsletter:
1. Turn “Creator” mode ON.
Go to your LinkedIn profile, scroll down to “Resources,” and find where it says “Creator Mode: OFF.” Click to change it so it says, “Creator Mode: ON.”
2. Back in your newsfeed, click on “write article.”
3. Create a newsletter.
When it takes you to the article editor, hit the “Create a newsletter” button. It will lead you through choosing a title, description, etc.
And that’s it! Write your first issue and hit “Publish.”
Another benefit of doing this on LinkedIn: All your connections will instantly be invited to subscribe.
You've got a newsletter and a list! You'll be surprised how many people subscribe!
Remember: This is all a big experiment. You really can’t go wrong for trying it out. (And of course you can always delete it.)
In fact, I think it’s such a good idea to start a LinkedIn newsletter…
That I started my own – as a little sister to these Quick Tips – specifically to give you tips on using LinkedIn to grow your business.
