Ecommerce newsletters offer an amazing wealth of information and they generally come at no cost to you. We read a lot of them and we think you should too.
Newsletters Are Hot
Newsletters are hot now. It makes perfect sense. You can get your favorite source of news, advice, or commentary right in your inbox so you know exactly when it’s fresh and you’re always in the know.
Plus, you don’t have to rely on big publications to be the only source of truth. Anybody with an internet connection can start a newsletter, and if they have something worth reading, it’ll get read. So a lot of people are writing great newsletters.
Newsletters – or at least the ones we’re talking about here – are free to subscribe to. That means it doesn’t cost you a thing to subscribe and ensure you won’t miss out on opportunities other sellers are taking advantage of.
Ecommerce Newsletters That We Read
We brainstormed, researched, and shared what we all like to read, and put together this ecommerce newsletter list for you. So you don’t have to go find the newsletters you need. They’re all right here.
Below you’ll find brief descriptions of 19 newsletters covering ecommerce, digital marketing, marketplaces, and omnichannel selling.
Introducing the Page One Newsletter
We’re also pumped to announce that we’re joining the newsletter party with our own offering that we think you’ll enjoy. Page One is free and hits your inbox once a week with a timely tidbit of ecommerce knowledge to help you get your products to page one of search.
We’re betting you’ll look forward to it arriving every week, and we’re hoping you’ll let us know how you use the advice we’re sending in it.
