January means a new year, a clean slate, and sometimes not much else.  When you don’t have a whole lot going on, it can be hard to determine whether it’s even worth sending a newsletter to your fans.  If you don’t have any updates, what are you going to write about?

 

It’s important to remember that your fans are excited to hear from you, no matter what.  Additionally, sending regularly is a key practice in keeping a clean email list.  If you don’t have anything coming up soon, let them know what they can expect to see from you later in the year, or tell them what you did over the holidays.  They’ll be so excited that you wanted to share that with them.

 

We came up with a few ideas of what else you could share with your subscribers, plus we made a MadLibs-type fill-in-the-blank message if you have trouble composing your own.  Make it as serious or nonsensical as you’d like, and share your results in the comments!

 

Fun Things to Share With Your Fans:

 

Free Download

 

Even if you don’t have a finished product, fans don’t care!  Give away a demo recording or a PDF of some notes you scribbled on a napkin.  They like an inside look as much as they like a polished piece of content.
