September 23, 2022
Newsletters are undergoing a renaissance in popularity, but managing a newsletter team successfully remains a challenge for news organizations amid competition from independent newsletter writers and platform changes that limit access to audience analytics. In this archived session from ONA22, the award-winning newsletter team from the Wall Street Journal share how they approach newsletters as a journalistic format and as an audience-focused product. Their conversation addresses how newsletters fit into a membership business model, how to measure success, how to deal with the demise of open rates and experiment with new newsletter formats.
This session was designed for:
- Newsletter writers and editors interested in innovative newsletter formats.
- Audience engagement specialists looking to reach new audiences through newsletters.
