Seeking Volunteers — Try a Newsletter for free

By Travis Johnson, Stock Gumshoe, June 25, 2013

Update: We have at least one publisher actively looking for guinea pigs today to try their service for free if you’re willing to review it, please let us know if you’re interested in being on our reviewers list.

We occasionally have newsletter editors ask us how to get reviews on our site and increase their exposure, and our answer usually is “ask your readers to submit a review” — but we are also willing to help them out or work with them to some degree, particularly if they are small or independent publishers. One way of doing that is by connecting those newsletters with individual investors who are willing to review a newsletter in exchange for a trial subscription of some reasonable length (at least 3-6 months).

So … if you’re curious about newsletters and are willing to spend a little bit of time reviewing them and sharing your opinion in exchange for a trial subscription, please let us know and we’ll keep you on the list of possible reviewers for future consideration. We’ll give preference to folks who have submitted reviews of newsletters in the past, but won’t exclude readers who haven’t reviewed before.

In exchange for a free trial subscription you will be obligated to submit a review of that newsletter at some point during the next several months, and that is the end of your obligation — these won’t be the kinds of trials that end up costing you something, and they won’t need your credit card or anything.

It does not have to be a positive review, of course, it should simply reflect your opinion and your experience as an individual investor, and your opinion about whether the newsletter is worthwhile or interesting or useful and, briefly, why. Most of our subscriber reviews range from 100-250 words.

If that sounds like something that would interest you, please drop us a line — use the contact form here and the subject “General Questions” and just let us know that you’re willing to try out newsletters for free, let us know if there are particular kinds of newsletters you are or are not interested in (ie, income stocks, foreign stocks, etc., or just willing to try anything), and give us your email address and a phone number. That’s it — if and when we have a newsletter trial to match you up with, we’ll let ...
