Why publish your own email newsletter?

  • Keeps you top-of-mind - with your whole network, all 52 weeks/year. No more long gaps between touchpoints.
  • Positions you as a thought-leader - within your industry and/or functional expertise.
  • Builds trust & credibility - week by week, as you consistently share valuable insights and ideas with your relationships.
  • Cuts through the noise - Instead of creating Linkedin posts which may only be seen by a handful of your most important relationships, sending a newsletter lets you create valuable touchpoints with your entire network at once, at the press of a button - not a random group, and not a hit or miss approach.
  • Build an asset that sticks with you, wherever you go - Your newsletter (and contact list), are assets that you own, no matter where you go. Whether you move to another firm, switch careers, or go independent, your relationships come along for the ride.
  • Keep the conversation going - Unlike a one-off blog or Linkedin post, your newsletter lets you stay engaged with your whole network, week after week. Whether you want to share a big announcement of a recent placement, an event you’re hosting, or anything else, your newsletter is an exceptional network engagement tool.
  • Takes less than 30 minutes per week - 52x takes the pain out of writing a newsletter from scratch. Instead, we provide you with the ability to re-share any great article / thought leadership you stumble on, with the click of a button. And that great thought leadership piece you poured your heart and soul into can be included as well!
  • Works for you while you sleep - Think of it as your business development co-pilot, quietly working in the background, 24/7, creating valuable touchpoints on your behalf, with the exact group of people who are most interested in your services.
  • Is highly cost-effective - It’s like hosting your own mini-conference each week, where the only people in attendance are those who already know and like you.

Client relationship development, the modern way

The 52x Method is an outcome-oriented approach to client relationship development based on the tried-and-true principles of thought leadership and consultative selling.

It's simple:

The 52x Method

  1. Delight your network with valuable insights and ideas on a weekly basis (all 52 weeks/year).
  2. Over time, as you regularly inform and inspire your network, they begin to view you as a trusted advisor. An expert. Someone they can go to when they need a leadership solution.
  3. More business, more referrals, and more opportunities organically surface.

Instead of “pushing” your services onto the market, you allow the market to gravitate toward you.

What makes 52x unique?

52x is designed around the belief that tastefully curating and sharing highly-relevant thought leadership with your network is even more valuable than creating everything yourself.

In fact, our whole system is designed to help you share the best of what's already out there, and add your own commentary on top if you like.

This helps you establish and reinforce your area of expertise, whether that's based on an industry focus, a functional focus, or some combination of the two. We help you position yourself as an authority in your target market.

Here's how it works
We make it easy, in just a few steps.
Choose your topic(s)

Pick the topics that your network will benefit the most from. If you have a functional or industry focus, you might include the latest thought leadership in your industry. If you'd like to position yourself as an ESG or DE&I thought leader, you can do that too! It's entirely up to you.

Make it yours

52x gives you complete control over the design & branding of your newsletter. From colors to logos to fonts, your newsletter will be unmistakable and stand out in the inbox.

Collect thought leadership throughout the week

Each time you come across a great article, blog post, video, or any other type of content you think your network would benefit from, save the link so you can share it in your next newsletter issue.

Generate & send your newsletter

Once you're ready, use our flexible, easy-to-use editor to quickly insert the links you want to share. Within seconds, our system will automatically find the title, description, and image for each thought leadership piece you add... making it a breeze to create a high-quality newsletter in just moments. Finally, add your own commentary, tweak it until it's perfect, and send it out!

Spread the word!

52x comes with a dedicated website for your newsletter where people can sign up and read past issues. With just one link, you can share your newsletter and past issues anywhere you can paste a link, including Linkedin and email. Pro Tip: we recommend adding your newsletter's sign-up link to your email signature for even more exposure.

Your business grows

Week after week, as you delight your network with valuable thought leadership, they’ll begin to view you as a trusted advisor and new business opportunities will organically surface.

Technology does the work, your network gets the benefit, you get the credit.

Call-to-action buttons

Within your newsletter, you can add call-to-action buttons that you can use to drive traffic to your website, blog, Linkedin, etc.

With 52x, you can see exactly how well each post you send performs. That includes metrics like open rate, click-through rate, and more. This helps you understand what type of content is resonating the most with your audience, and how well your email marketing efforts are working overall.

See who opened, and the links they clicked on

For every post you send, you can see exactly who opened it, and which links they clicked on. This gives you rich insights into who is most engaged with your content, and which topics they're interested in. Next time you talk with them, you'll know exactly what to talk about. Ice broken.
