I've made some careful changes so far and I believe that it's improved how many of you interact with 2PML on a daily basis. For one, I've reduced the number of letters from five per week to a more sustainable (and digestible) three per week. The percentage of readers who clickthrough to external articles (my measure of success) has risen from 23.1% to 31.2% in the last 20 issues. Additionally, the overall open rate rarely falls below 50% now, a good sign.
To build on this, I am planning a few additional improvements that will go into effect no later than Issue 240. For one, the next two partnerships will be announced: an eCommerce behemoth and a $1B+ venture capital fund. I'm extremely proud to have rounded out the longterm partners for this project. However, here are few improvements that will better serve you:
Update no. 1: Once per week, there will be a subscription-based, long-form analysis of the week's newsworthy advancements in eCommerce, brand, or digital media. Professionally written, edited, and delivered to you before Saturday brunch.
Update no. 2: For the readers who want access to that content, there will be a custom-built forum for you to communicate with one another or even contribute content of your own.
Update no. 3:
As such, 2PML will be hiring an analyst for the weekly long-form product. Email me for info: firstname.lastname@example.org
Many readers use 2PML
to influence decision-making in the fields of retail, investment, and business / fashion journalism. The upcoming private community and weekly content will provide another platform for no more than 600 leaders to consume and communicate with their peer groups.
