How Newsletters Help Publishers Increase Engagement and Strengthen Reader Relationships

Check out this blog post to get insights into how newsletters improve engagement for publishers – and how Naviga’s solutions help you make every step of the newsletter process easier.

Did you know that the number of global email users is expected to grow to 4.6 billion users by 2025? Email marketing is here to stay – and is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to push content to your readers while growing a relationship with them (outside of social media and push notifications, of course!). That’s why it’s no surprise that newsletters have become a hot topic in the industry, especially as subscriptions have skyrocketed over the past several years.  


Growing audience engagement with newsletters

Newsletters are easily one of the most important pieces of email marketing, since it delivers all of a publication’s high-interest content directly to their audiences (on a virtual silver platter). This not only helps publishers gain recognition as a trusted resource for quality news, but also improves engagement rates as they view multiple articles and stay longer on your website. 

But that’s not all.  

As we move towards a cookieless world, newsletters also help publishers with getting more first party data. You’ll be able to learn more about your audience’s behavior and use that to personalize emails to continue growing engagement and loyalty.  

By growing that relationship with your audience, you’ll be able to more easily convert readers into subscribers.
