3 Newsletters I read that are worth the time

I think I get around 50 or so different newsletters every day. Most of them are total garbage, but I sign up for them anyway. Once in a blue moon Ill refer to one for a newsletter design idea, so Im almost afraid to stop getting them.

Out of all of those, I read three regularly and actually look forward to them. They arent the prettiest things in my inbox, but when content is really good, who cares what they look like? And thats coming from a designer.

1. Boagworld – Web & Digital Advice

This is my all-time favorite. Its written exactly for me almost all the time, which is what all good newsletters should do. Trust me, were working on changing ours to serve YOU better.

This newsletter (and blog) is all about design business, process, new tools, new and old ideas, working with clients, working with technology, everything that I want to know about. Paul Boag is a big deal in the web world and his posts are excellent.

CMO.com – Digital Marketing Insight for CMOs


As much as Ive been complaining about Adobes recent stunt to make us all pay more for their software, This newsletter is pretty good. Great interviews, great case studies, news and insight. Its mostly for for-profits, but Id argue that marketing is marketing regardless of if youre a 501(c)3 or an S-corp.
