Why email newsletters?

Email marketing is one of the top marketing strategies employed by businesses today. Why?

People like email because they have more control with email than, say, social media. They can opt in and opt out easily (versus having to figure out settings on each social media platform; or deal with ads), they can choose whether to open an email or not (as opposed to social media where, if you don’t care for a post, you still have to scroll past it), and they can delete emails they don’t like.

And marketers like email because…well…people check their email! When they wake up. When in line. On the bus. At work. For work. Email marketing gives you the ability to reach audience members who want to be reached, to be creative, to keep current customers up to date on deals and promotions, products, and news, and to nurture leads into paying customers.

P.S. If you’re looking for email newsletter ideas, we’ve got you covered.

Why have a creative newsletter name?

There are a number of effective ways to promote your business today, but with all of them in use by so many businesses, it’s hard to stand out with simply the channel you’re using. In order to capture the attention of your target audience and stand out above your competition, you’ve got to work on your messaging, delivery, and approach within each channel to shine.

Having a creative and authentic name for your email newsletter can help you to:

  • Get more newsletter signups.
  • Stand out in your readers’ inboxes.
  • Be remembered more.
  • Build a community around your brand.
  • Spread through word of mouth (Who doesn’t want a chance to say Tina’s Tuesday Tech Tips?).

Approaches you can take with newsletter names

In addition to having catchy and effective email subject lines, you can also use the email newsletter name itself to increase the appeal of your emails. Below are some creative tactics you can use to come up with creative newsletter names.

Quick note: Many of these names are real, so do some poking around before you choose yours to make sure you’re not stealing someone else’s in your sphere of influence

Rhyming newsletter names

Simple rhyme schemes can be delightful (Can I use that word? Yes.) and memorable. Choose a root word to build off of that ties into your local business or simply use your business’s name:

  • Renegade Arcade’s Cheat Sheets
  • Letters from a Trendsetter
  • The Pet Gazette*
    *But please, for the love of all things good in this world, don’t use this one as it’s as overused as [insert something you’re sick of hearing here].

Alliterative newsletter names

Using words that begin with the same letter or sound can help your newsletter name to roll off the tongue and welcome a click. Alliteration has been shown to focus a reader’s attention on specific sections of text and generate a natural rhythm and even a feeling. Specific sounds may also suggest undertones. For instance “s” may strike a ssslithering or sssecret feel. So keep this in mind in relation to your brand personality. Others may suggest no undertones at all, though, so don’t take this fact too seriously.

  • Monday Morning Memo
  • Runner’s Review
  • Daily Dispatch

Punny/play on words newsletter names

A pun uses a word or phrase’s double meaning to its advantage. These are particularly popular as they’re often humorous and clever.

  • The Daily Press—this could work for a coffee shop.
  • Fresh Thoughts—grocer or florist.
  • Between the Lines —for a tattoo shop.
  • The Drummer’s Beat—music teacher.

You can use this approach for coming up with a business name too!

Plain and obvious newsletter names

Some brands like to nix the puns, the rhymes, the cleverness, and just tell it like it is. This is good for brands that aim for a simple feel, or who cover complex topics and want to convey that they speak in plain terms their readers will understand.

  • Matt Levine’s Money Stuff
  • Design Things
  • Finance Facts
  • Simply Colors (painter or interior designer blog)
  • Just Pics (for a photographer)

Industry jargon newsletter names

Creative email newsletter names can also use industry jargon that only certain people would recognize or understand, to grab their attention. If you have a very specific niche, this can be very effective in giving the newsletter an exclusive feel and attracting a very specific following.

  • The REO Newsletter (REO is a real estate term, “real estate owned”).
  • Exhibit A (for a law firm or lawyer association newsletter).
  • First Look Newsletter (for a wedding planner).

Location or time-based newsletter names

Treat your newsletter like a place that people stop in on from time to time. This helps create an atmosphere for the reader. You can use rhyming or alliteration here but it’s not necessary.

  • The Caterer’s Corner
  • Allison’s Idea Factory
  • The Husky Lovers’ Hub
  • The Space for Taste
