So, you have a newsletter, right? It could be in any format…even just regular emails that announce your new blog posts or podcasts.

In other words, we write newsletters to make more sales.

Greetings, friend. I hope you’ve recovered from the world’s longest election night in history. If you’re not in America, sorry for all the noise over the past weeks, but thank you, again, for ringing the church bells in celebration.

Hi there. It’s me, Forest. Long time no writey, eh? [Insert details of pandemic effects, health challenges, and remote 7th-grade schooling happening in our house.] I’ve deeply missed writing to you, and that’s not a joke. Finding great things to share with you and then writing to you about them is one of my favorite things to do. In the past, I used to share 10 things in each newsletter that could help your online business engine run better, but while I do like the number 10, the Number 4 feels left out. So, today’s issue of The Intelligence Brief is brought to you by The Number 4.
