What should you name your email newsletter?
Another Monday Morning Website Tip by
Have you ever signed up for an email newsletter that has no name and a call to action of “sign up for our newsletter,” I’m guessing you probably didn’t. Is it because you had no idea what the magic newsletter was? The data for those signups of that email newsletter probably looked a lot like these sales George Costanza had for his Dad right?
What if you named your newsletter something that was relevant to what you do or that’s personal to your brand?
Here’s some examples that do a good job and the reason why they capture someones attention.
Retire Simply Weekly from compassretirement.com
This example tells the prospect exactly how often they will receive the email newsletter (weekly), what it’s about (retirement), and how to do it (simply). It hits 3 key areas and is the first thing you see when you pull up Compass Retirement.
New This Week from rehomeks.com
This example hits that pain point of missing out if you don’t sign up for their emails. It also tells the prospect how often they’ll get it (weekly) and that they’ll miss out if they don’t sign up. Simple, yet very effective.
The Crafty Caterer from Engroff Catering
I love this example because it shows this company as more than a catering company, but a company that is going to give tips, ideas, and specials when prospects sign up for their newsletter.
The key is to give a reason to sign up for your newsletter.
Even if you aren’t sure what you’re going to name your newsletter, giving someone a reason to sign up is key to them handing over their email address for you to market to. Take a look at East Bank On Mill Creek, not only is this one of the coolest boutique hotels in Kansas in my opinion, but look at what they did with theirs – this is great! Even if they don’t email weekly – they are saying that when there are specials or deals you’ll want to be on their list by saying simply “Sign up for East Bank Updates and Specials.”
About Marcus Rangel
I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.
I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.
When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Topeka, KS.

Do you automatically talk to a someone when they fill out a form on your website? Here’s why you maybe shouldn’t… I remember back in 2019 when I was building IMC and working at AE in my full time gig when someone filled out a request to talk about their website. I scheduled the call over my lunch break, and immediately when I was on the phone I told myself, “I’m never doing that again.”…Read More
Now that it’s 2022, you may be thinking about that website of yours. It’s kind of like a house once you have one for a while… you know, you love it once you get it, but then after a few years it may be time to make some upgrades or an entire makeover. via GIPHY As Cuba Gooding Junior would famously say in the movie Jerry McGuire, “SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!” is probably what you…Read More
Follow me here, I used to run 3 miles a day in some comfortable shoes, the ones Forest Gump even ran with. My Nike Cortez, I thought, were the best. Then, I had someone who is currently in college (and yes, a lot younger than me) tell me that Nike was over with, and they’ve been take over by a brand called Hoka which I had never heard of and you probably haven’t either right?…Read More
