Welcome to Paul’s Podcast Diary for Saturday 4th May, 2019.

Coming up this week:

  • How I just achieved my highest number of replies to a mailout EVER … and no, they weren’t refund requests!
  • What I learned from finally getting around to listening to a couple of audio books by Dean Wesley Smith
  • I’ll be talking to Kinga Jentetics CEO & Co-founder @ PublishDrive about the publishing platform, how it can help authors and what’s planned for the future

This diary charts my self-publishing journey – the ups the downs, the successes and the failures.

Everything goes into this diary, week-by-week, but you’ll also find it a source of great tips, resources, tools, podcast recommendations and so on.

    Yes yes do the mailchimp non fiction book. I use mailchimp but very badly. Ive read ninja newletter but I don’t know how to implement in mailchimp half of what she says. Would love a simple breakdown on a platform I actually find confusing

      Mailchimp can be a bit of a struggle if you’re new to email marketing. MailerLite is a lot simpler for beginners.
