I got my first subscriber!

I set up an #emaillist called The Copy Club about a week or two ago, but haven't had the time to market it except for:
  • Add a link to my #Instagram bio
  • Include the link in my onboarding emails
I can easily see whether the link was clicked from my Instagram bio because I currently use Linktree which "monitors" url clicks. And I can also easily see whether a link was clicked from my onboarding emails because I am testing out a system called 17Hats, which does the same "monitoring".
In this case, it came from Instagram and by reverse-engineering the domain-based email, I was able to figure out who it was!

Yes, I'm a stalker 🤦‍♀️

But that also means a total stranger found me on Instagram and liked my posts/feed enough to give me their email address!
Or it was a bot...🤖

But I'm an optimist, so I'm going to celebrate this little victory.

tl;dr I got my first email subscriber to an email list I recently set up to market myself. I haven't actually marketed it much, which feels like someone sought it out or stumbled upon and liked it... or it was a bot. Whatever the case, I'm counting this as a small win.
