This is how my blog / newsletter business works: I send out free writing advice, training techniques, and I maintain a free Facebook group.
Then, for one weekend every month or two, I open up one of my premium writing courses, and I ask people on my email list if they would like to buy it.
If you sign up to one of my free writing guides, online courses, or newsletter, I will include you in my paid course launch emails.
There is no obligation to buy anything, ever. As long as two percent of the people on my email list buy, I am very happy.
You can unsubscribe any time, or ask me to remove you from my records.
I will never share your information with spammers or give your email address away.
During those launch weeks, I may also send you an ad, once in a while, on a platform like Pinterest or Facebook. I have not done this very often so far, but I may start doing it to reach more of my email list during the brief windows where I am promoting one of my courses.
I may use the data from my email list and my website visitors’ info to create a “lookalike” or “custom” audience on Facebook. You’re going to see targeted ads on Facebook, whatever I do — that’s how they make money — so I think it’s morally acceptable for me to use Facebook’s systems to try to find more people like you, people who truly care about their writing and who like the way I teach.
As mentioned elswhere on this site, some of the links on my blog are “affiliate” links. This means I get a finder’s fee from the seller if you buy through my link.
