Tips for Writing Succesfully as Noahopinion

Here are some tips for writing a successful Noahpinion newsletter based on extensive research:

  1. Add something novel to the discussion. To be a successful writer, you must add value to the conversation. You can teach people about something they don’t understand, come up with fresh and exciting takes, or rehash old stuff with a writing style people enjoy.
  2. Grow your audience. Look at your metrics and feedback to figure out which kind of people are interested in things you write. Play around with new topics and formats to see if you can find hidden pockets of interest. Get to know other writers in the field and be part of the professional community.
  3. Keep your post formatting consistent. Establish a clear brand identity and help readers know what to expect from your newsletter. Write concisely and visually break up blocks of text.
  4. Give a free preview on paywalled posts. Let people see what the post is about before they decide whether it’s worth paying to read it.
  5. Engage in discussions. Engaging in discussions is a much better viral marketing method than push-promoting your posts. Develop good relationships with other writers and use that to create high-quality conversations.
  6. Consistently post. Consistent posting helps you build relationships with your subscribers and is vital to success on Substack and other platforms. Your readers will only get to know you if you show up regularly.

By following these tips, you can write a successful newsletter like Noahpinion that engages your audience and adds value to the conversation.
