I'm now one of the editors for Better Marketing

Published 10 months ago • 1 min read

Hi Reader,

Exciting news: I'm now one of three editors for Better Marketing! Better Marketing is Medium's #1, top marketing publication with over 100k followers.

For a while, it was drifting between owners. Now, I'm thrilled to announce that Kati Amberry, Sinem Günel, and I will be doing our best to make Better Marketing the best place to learn about marketing online.

What this means for you

I have two main updates that are relevant to you.

First, Sinem, Kati, and I are hosting a Launch Party this Thursday, Aug 24th, at 11 am ET. It'll be on YouTube, so you can watch the recorded version after the fact.

Coming to the live version? Bring yourself and any questions you have:

  • What's Better Marketing?
  • What types of stories will get published?
  • How come we're the ones running it?
  • How will we be helping promote your stories?
  • And any other questions you might have!

Second, I am so excited to share that we applied for and were accepted into the Boost beta program. This means that each Better Marketing Booster will be able to nominate 20 marketing-related stories for the Boost every month as of Sept 2023. We will be actively looking for amazing stories about marketing to nominate!

Want more details? Head on over to this Better Marketing newsletter I published yesterday to read about what we're looking for, what we don't want, and our commitments to you.

Happy writing,

Good morning Reader, It is an uncomfortable truth that nobody really likes to acknowledge: to get better at writing, you should probably get better at taking feedback about your writing. (Sorry to Jane Austen for butchering her famous line.) I used to be terrible at dealing with comments from editors on my writing. I hated them! I feared them! I distrusted them! But you know what? To become a professional writer of any kind, you have to learn how to work with other people on that most...

Good morning Reader, Some exciting personal news: I've just been hired by Medium to be a product marketer! In short, I'll be doing a lot of what I have been doing - helping writers use Medium to write awesome stories - but now while wearing my sweet new Medium jumper. Here's the full story: Write Like Your Dream Employer Is Watching (or How I Got Hired by Medium) What does this mean for you? My focus will be more on Medium blogging specifically. In the past, I've written about AI tools, other...

Good morning Reader, Fun fact: my most-ever successful article started as a newsletter I wrote in about an hour. Seriously. Here's the story -- and if you were here a year ago, you might remember it! Around this time last year, I was getting fed up and annoyed with this one piece of advice I was seeing repeated everywhere: "You need to be on [insert platform]!" Insert platform was sometimes LinkedIn, sometimes TikTok, sometimes a newer platform like Threads. So I opened up my newsletter...
