10 Email Newsletters That Make Me A Smarter Entrepreneur

When it comes to being inbox-worthy, these ten must-read email newsletters don’t disappoint. I’ve been reading them for some time now, and so should you.

  1. HBS Working Knowledge Newsletter

    The HBS Working Knowledge newsletter is an email product from Harvard Business School. The HBS Working Knowledge site offers a forum for innovation in business practice. What’s great about the HBS newsletter is that it’s always ripe with new content from 200+ HBS faculty members that are at the forefront of their diverse fields of expertise. If you want to stay at the cusp of innovation and change, this newsletter is a must-read.

  2. 99U Newsletter

    99U is for the creative in us all because they’re all about making ideas happen. Their consistent conversation on failure, collaboration, leadership, risk-taking, creative blocks and more make their email product noteworthy. 99U is Behance’s effort to share pragmatic, action-oriented insights from leading researchers and visionary creatives. They say, “we don’t want to give you more ideas—we want to empower you to make good on the ones you’ve got,” and that in itself is an interesting value proposition.

  3. eMarketer Daily

By collecting data from thousands of sources and putting it into context, eMarketer conveniently provides you with the most complete view of digital marketing available.

  4. Ex Post Facto by VC Tomasz Tunguz

It’s never good to be a mile wide and an inch deep, and thankfully Tomasz Tunguz helps you mine for startup gold with this concept in mind.

  5. WP Beginner

    74 million websites use WordPress and I’d venture a guess that you do too. If you’re one of the 74 million and counting, it’s always helpful to understand the nuts and bolts of the CMS platform that powers your business. This is where WPBeginner is handy. A free WordPress resource site for beginners, WPBeginner offers quality tips, tricks, hacks that allows WordPress beginners to improve their site(s). Their email newsletter can take you from novice to pro in no time.

  6. HubSpot Newsletter

    Every entrepreneur needs a daily dose of inbound. If you’re not an inbound marketing evangelist, you soon will be once you grasp the pure brilliance of the most effective marketing method for doing business online. HubSpot’s Marketing Blog is a must-read for marketers and small business owners alike. If you need no-nonsense marketing articles delivered straight to your inbox this newsletter is a no-brainer.
