A Beginner's Guide to Newsletters - Cuppa Press

In talks with Dozie Anyaegbunam

September 28.2020  5 minutes


We were today years old when we learnt that being called ‘Newsletter Nerd’ or ‘Newsletter Monster’ was not common. What an absolute shocker. 


Newsletters are one medium for brands to stay in touch with their customers and often used to keep them up-to-date with the latest trends or promotions. 


However, they are not a new phenomenon, and have been around for several centuries.  According to Orange County Attorney Journal, the first newsletter appeared in 1704.


So if you’ve been toying with the idea of starting one yourself but aren’t sure where to begin, this episode of Cuppa Press will most certainly give you the clarity you need to launch your very own newsletter. 


With guest speaker Dozie T'Challa Anyaegbunam, we present to you the latest one on Cuppa Press - A Beginner’s Guide to Newsletters.
