The Garlic Press - I need your advice.
It has now been 4 months since I started publishing The Garlic Press Newsletter.
I do enjoy the process, but I have to find a way to monetise it and make it worthwile for me and my team.
I contacted a few of my subscribers and asked for their opinion on the best way to do that. One advice that I heard several times was: newsletter value will go down as more people are reading it. Nobody wants to pay for product leads that are known to thousands of other Amazon sellers.
So I came up with an idea of so-called “Club99”.
The idea in a nutshell: the newsletter becomes paid and costs $99 per month. At the same time, I limit the number of subscribers to 99 people. This ensures that the opportunities that I publish are exclusive to this limited group of sellers. Yes, 99 is still a lot, but not everybody acts on every lead I send, and to me this feels like a good number.
In fact, recently my company launched one of the leads that I published in this newsletter, thinking that this is not for us. We then reconsidered the opportunity, went for it, and it is already turning profit.
Anyway, I need your help to see if Club99 is a good idea.
I created a poll where you can vote and comment. It is anonymous, so feel free to be as brutal as you want:
