Dale Carnegie once said “Flattery is from the teeth out. Sincere appreciation is from the heart out.” And I completely agree.
When it comes to my job, I have to say I wholeheartedly appreciate all the people I get to connect, and exchange comments and ideas with. On a daily basis, I get to e-meet many of our Paper.li users and find that sometimes our community knows more about how to use Paper.li than we do :). I’m often surprised by the creative and amazing ways that you all put your papers to use for the benefit of your audiences.
Although I’ve tried to explain how you can find and distribute content with Paper.li, the real way to show the power of content and how Paper.li can help is by placing the focus on the work of our community.

Those papers are indeed very nice. Thanks for sharing.
I did notice that most of those pages were not generating any traffic to the paper. Is there any paper.li newsletters that have been used to generate traffic?
Hi Casey, thanks for your comment! Generating traffic should come as a result of sharing good content with a good curated hub. If you’re looking to increase your traffic, I would suggest you schedule promotion on social media to make sure others sign up. Also, if you have another website, you could install the subscription widget. I suggest you visit our helpdesk for help on how: https://support.paper.li/hc/en-us/articles/204104653-Promote-Add-a-subscription-widget-to-your-blog-or-website
After subscribing to several PaperLi newsletters, I started my own about six months ago, opting for the PRO version to embed in my website, which brings more traffic to my site. Going PRO allowed me to customize my paper to match my website and feature own books as ads in the sidebar instead of outside advertising.
As a novelist, I focus on content for writers and readers, limiting the categories and renaming them to suit the publishing industry. Ex: “Arts & Entertainment” is “Books, Movies and More”. Others are: Business of Writing, Tech for Writers, World of Writers. I may add video tutorials about writing, blogging, website design and even a few music videos or film trailers.
While the sources of my content have taken time to fine-tune, I now feel I have some highly respected voices on the business automatically feeding my paper every day, which is gaining more interest from my fellow writers. Every morning, I spend a few minutes editing the new edition to choose my favorites to headline, particularly authors I know personally. When I send notification of publication to my social media, these writers are mentioned on Twitter, which promotes them and creates re-tweets. Win-win.
Yesterday, I received a message from a writer whose blog featured a new book of another author. She was excited to tell me that previous posts about the fabulous author had only received a handful of hits. Yesterday, her blog had 1500 hits. The only difference was that her blog was one of the headlines in my newsletter. Pretty sweet!
I may not have a big following yet. But I think it takes time to get the word out there. I have been asked to write an article for the Novelist, Inc. newsletter in December, explaining how I fine-tuned my newsletter for my website.
Meanwhile, I plan to write my own blog about my personal observations of many PaperLi newsletters–what works and what doesn’t (in my opinion). I do believe that “going Pro” is worth the investment for a truly focused, branded newsletter.
Thanks so much for your product!
