Since my new project, Chicago Public Square—“Chicago’s new front page”—launched publicly a week ago Monday, things have gone well:
An organically grown subscription base of more than 500.
And email open rates for the most recent four weekdays averaging 49 percent. (Compare to a media-industry average of 22 percent.)
Ask how I did it. Meyerson Strategy can help you do the same.
Note to longtime subscribers to the Meyerson Strategy email list: The launch of Square means features like the “3 Things” series or my previous work on the Chicago Tribune’s Daywatch and my late WBEZ blog will appear there, not here.
This blog—and the corresponding email subscription—will remain home to observations on content strategy, journalism, podcasting, popular culture and tech; and to occasional dives into the Meyerson archives.
I hope you’ll consider adding a subscription to Square here. (It’s free.)
