Thinking Out Loud About Mailing Lists

I have two mailing lists I use: Reverbnation and Aweber. Reverbnation is designed specifically for musicians. In fact, one of the reasons I was the #1 Celtic musician in the world on that site last year was because of how I grew and used my mailing list. I also like it because it easily allows […]
