Cast your vote for your favorite print subscription newsletter!

Last week I announced my upcoming one-day workshop on how to be a six-figure print subscription newsletter publisher this coming October.  Print, subscription newsletters are different than free client/customer newsletters and if you have not yet gotten on my Priority Notification list about this very focused info-publishing workshop, you can do so here:

I’m already in the research and development phase for this workshop and thought it would be interesting to see what your thoughts were, regarding subscription newsletters.

What print newsletters do you pay for (or have paid for in the past)?

I’m interested in hearing about consumer-oriented subscription newsletters or business-oriented newsletters you have subscribed to in the past or are currently subscribing to.

I’m not interested in free or ezine-type newsletters.

Include the newsletter name and any positive feedback you want to leave regarding the publication.

Cast your vote(s) below and I will give away a very cool newsletter swipe file to the 1st, 10th, 15th and 20th person to leave a comment below with their newsletter suggestions (make sure you include a way to contact you).

ATTENTION SUBSCRIPTION NEWSLETTER PUBLISHERS: If you are already publishing a printed, subscription newsletter and are interested in being interviewed about your newsletter, please contact my office.

    Robin Robin’s Technology Marketing Minute is one of the most informative newsletters in the MSP marketing industry.

    • Mike Capuzzi on July 30, 2013 at 2:45 pm

      Thanks Jeff. You’re the first response. Will email you the details of your download.

    I have four newsletter subscriptions presently I pay for$:

    1) Smart Ideas (Mike Capuzzi)

    2) No Hassle Newsletter (Jim Palmer)

    3) BEN (Charlie McDermott)

    4) NoBS (GKIC)

  3. Tom Trush on July 30, 2013 at 2:53 pm

    I often steal ideas from Charlie Gaudet’s Predictable Profits Insiders’ Club newsletter. He does a great job of not just covering concepts, but giving specific steps that lead to marketing breakthroughs.

  4. Craig on July 30, 2013 at 3:04 pm

    I LOVE Smart Ideas! (Not kissin’ your butt or anything. I do! 🙂


  5. Steffan on July 30, 2013 at 3:46 pm

    Hi Mike,

    The newsletters I subscribe to are:

    Your Smart Ideas – simple and quick to read (packed with info and usable examples on the site to download)

    Jon McCulloch’s Business Supremacy – different topic every issue covered in depth with a great active forum and a lot of intervention by Jon with extra critiques and tips.

    GKIC’s No B.S. – enjoyable topical input by Dan, good it has the CD / transcript of an interview and a workable idea in the swipe file.

    Hope that helps,

    1- local newspaper
    2- rural paper
    3- City paper
    4- smart ideas
    5- my own printed newspaper

    warmest regards


  7. CJ Bronstrup on July 30, 2013 at 5:48 pm

    Dan’s No BS Newsletter for sure… but I like the old format better. The new one is too “slick”.

    His really old style from the 90s was great.

    Jim Straw used to send his out on one page, typed on both sides. You could get the info FAST and move on to IMPLEMENTATION quicker!

    Much like Gary Halbert’s.

  8. Stuart on July 30, 2013 at 6:39 pm

    I subscribe to Smart Ideas very good. GKIC No Bull gold member and did subscribe to No Hassle newsletters.

    • Mike Capuzzi on July 30, 2013 at 6:45 pm

      Thanks Stuart. I did a little edit job. Hope you don’t mind!

  9. Robert Schwarztrauber on July 30, 2013 at 10:08 pm


    Hopes this helps in your new project…

    1.The GKIC NoBS newsletter is one of my favorites
    2.”More Time at the Beach” by Scott Bywater is also very good
    3.”The Doberman Dan Letter” by Dan Gallapoo

  10. Howard on July 30, 2013 at 10:27 pm

    I subscribe for 1. Smart Ideas and 2. GKIC.

    I publish my own for my clients called “Tax Sense Today”

  11. Andrew Huffer on July 30, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    1. GKIC
    2. SMART ideas
    3. Pete Godfrey (Australia)
    4. Facilitators Inner Circle (some bias there…)

  12. Mike Phillips on July 30, 2013 at 11:20 pm

    Along with Smart Ideas and the NoBS newsletter, I also receive the Nutrition Action Health Letter, published by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. It does a very good job of presenting what should and should not be eaten, how to read labels on food products, and teaches about food safety.

  13. Shannon on July 30, 2013 at 11:54 pm

    Hi Mike,

    Following the format others have set, here’s what I pay for:

    Nutritional news (but won’t after this run)
    Sometimes Bottom Line publications

    I like newsletters but the truth is that I don’t manage to read them and they pile up, so I avoid them altogether.


  14. Kevin on July 31, 2013 at 2:43 am

    Dan Kennedy’s NBS Newsletter is very good but it could do with a revamp!


  15. Brian on July 31, 2013 at 4:35 am

    I have 3 paid for newsletters I

    Obviously No 1 Smart Ideas A real Golden Nugget for my service business)

    No 2 No Hassle Newsletters Jim Palmer (saves me hours with my
    Inner Circle paid membership site

    No 3 No Hassle Social Media Jim Palmer – Makes Social Media a

    No 4 John McCullough’s Business Supremacy – Great technical info and ideas. Also terrific forum

  16. Jim on July 31, 2013 at 7:43 am

    Hi, Mike —

    Tough call. I really like Smart Ideas, your newsletter – get something valuable out of virtually every issue. But my favorite has to be the Dan Kennedy letters. Not sure which one specifically, but I get and devour:

    * NO BS Marketing Letter
    * Gold and Diamond letters
    * Looking Over Dan’s Shoulder
    * Marketing to the Affluent Newsletter/Reports
    * Info Marketing Newsletter (even though I’m not an info marketer, per se)

    I’ll be interested to see the results.

    Jim Edholm

  17. Roberta Eastman on July 31, 2013 at 10:08 am

    I receive all the letters Jim mentioned from Dan Kennedy:

    NO BS Marketing Letter
    * Gold and Diamond letters
    * Looking Over Dan’s Shoulder
    * Marketing to the Affluent Newsletter/Reports
    * Info Marketing Newsletter

    in addition…

    3D Mail Inner Circle & Copywriters Corner (paid with a subscription to product)

    Rich Schefrens Founders Club – More of a report than a newsletter but devour it every time it shows up (paid for through my membership in Rich’s Business Systems Growth Program.

    Good Luck With Your Research

    • Mike Capuzzi on July 31, 2013 at 10:46 am

      Thanks Roberta and welcome to the SMART Ideas family!

  18. Grant Miller on July 31, 2013 at 12:54 pm

    – Dan’s NO-BS is a classic (especially the pre-corporate takeover version)
    – Smart Ideas, of course, most excellent (seriously)
    – Perry Marshall’s Renaissance Club Newsletter
    – Love the old Gary Halbert newsletters
    – The old Writer’s Utopia by Jerry Buchanan which are also very good.

    • Mike Capuzzi on July 31, 2013 at 1:36 pm

      Grant – thanks and all excellent choices!

  19. Howard Zeiden on July 31, 2013 at 3:19 pm

    Smart Ideas is by far the most productive for me and my clients.
    Thanks for your efforts every month in maintaining the quality.

  20. Mike Ornelas on July 31, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Hi Mike,

    The only print newsletter I subscribe to is the No B.S. Marketing newsletter. I really enjoy the informative articles and practical advice provided by Dan Kennedy. I’d say that the segments besides Dan’s that I really like are the info-marketing by Robert Skrob, Lee Milteer’s, and the economic trends Harry Dent. Other than those three, I think GKIC can cut out the other portions and it’d be the best it can possibly be.

    It’s like getting a gift every time the newsletter is in the mailbox!

    Thanks Mike!

    P.S I enjoy your e-mails and content

    • Mike Capuzzi on July 31, 2013 at 6:17 pm

      Thanks Mike! You should check Dan’s “old stuff.” That and Gary Halbert’s (

  21. manuel on August 24, 2013 at 6:01 pm

    Hey Mike,

    I´m subscribed to GKICs No B.S Marketing letter

  22. Jason on August 17, 2014 at 2:16 am
