40+ SaaS, Marketing, & Growth Newsletters

Your inbox is likely a study in quantity vs. quality – and if you’d like to shift the balance towards quality, I’ve got some recommendations for you straight from my most-trusted sources.

Note: most of these links go straight to the blog pages where you’ll usually see a pop-up asking you to sign up.

Content

  • Backlinko – Nothing but the best information on increasing traffic. (Twitter)
  • Copy Blogger -Writing copy that sells, measuring it, and managing it all happen on the CopyBlogger blog, highlights of which you can read comfortably in your inbox when you subscribe. (Twitter)
  • Copy Hackers – Want to know how the copy pros do a newsletter? It’s worth signing up just to check their subject lines. (Twitter)
  • Moz Top 10 – A semimonthly digest of the 10 most valuable articles about SEO and online marketing. (Twitter)
  • Yeah Write Club – Copywriter Kaleigh Moore’s first newsletter was A Cup of Copy, which included beautifully-written advice for new and seasoned copywriters on writing better copy, and on building a writing business you love. Her Yeah Write Club is completely different – it’s interviews with working writers at the tops of their fields, book recommendations and even writing opportunities. I love both, but those interviews are fabulous. (Twitter)
  • WordWeaver – Alaura’s newsletter is tightly packed with insights into how to use storytelling and powerful language to create human connection that helps businesses sell and grow. (Twitter)

CRO & UX 

  • Conversion XL – Master the essentials of conversion rate optimization. (Twitter)
  • GetUplift – If we’ve spoken for more than 5 minutes, I’ve probably mentioned how much I LOVE Talia’s newsletters from GetUplift. That’s how much I talk about this conversion optimization newsletter! I’ve used these as inspiration for my own writing more than once, because her writing style is so personal, so fun, so interesting and always informative, pulling insights from her own experiences. (Twitter)
  • Nielsen Norman Group – Weekly newsletter with article summaries on interface usability, web design and UX. (Twitter)
  • Sarah Doody – Sarah Doody is an entrepreneur, UX designer, consultant, writer and speaker. Her weekly UX newsletter is a compilation of her personal experiences in UX design, curated articles, UX tips and prompts to get UX teams talking. (Twitter)
  • User Onboarding – Samuel Hulick, user onboarding expert,  examines how the most successful companies handle onboarding new users in his “teardowns.” Sign up for those teardowns – they’re golden. (Twitter)

Specifically SaaS

  • Christoph Janz – Managing partner at Point Nine Capital, Internet entrepreneur and angel investor in some really successful startups (Zendesk), Christoph Janz, discusses the finer points of growth in SaaS. (Twitter)
  • Forget The Funnel – Forget The Funnel is for marketers at product-first tech companies – it’s a weekly series of free, 30-minute workshops designed to help tech marketers “get out of the weeds, think strategically, and be a more effective SaaS marketer.” These 30-minute workshops are not fluff, and you can tell that by their impressive list of workshop leaders, like Talia Wolf, Joanna Wiebe, Ross Simmonds – and oh yeah, me. Really didn’t mean to plug myself, but you’ll see me on the list, and I didn’t want this to get awkward… (Twitter)
  • Hiten Shah – Weekly e-mail chock full of links about SaaS. (Twitter)
  • SaaStr – Jason Lemkin shares what he knows about growth in SaaS and B2B markets. (Twitter)
  • Tomasz Tunguz –  Data-driven blog posts about key questions facing startups including how to fund raise, startup benchmarks, management best practices and team building. (Twitter)
  • Totango – Customer Success for SaaS is Totango’s Newsletter’s forte. (Twitter)
  • Wootric – Wootric scours the latest publications from innovators in CX, product, and Customer Success to bring “the best of” right to your inbox every other week. (Twitter)

Straight-Up Growth Hacking

Other Good Stuff

  • Double Your Freelancing – Brennan Dunn, freelancer, author, and entrepreneur sends weekly words of wisdom on building a better freelancing business. (Twitter)
  • Femgineer – Femgineer promotes inclusivity in the tech industry, which is already pretty great (and much needed). The newsletter is an outstanding source of inspiration, practical advice and free weekly lessons for people of all backgrounds learning tech. (Twitter)
  • Product Hunt-The best new products, every day. (Twitter)
