‘We Have Been Able to Grow Our Newsletter Audience by 8.6%’; Introducing MDM’s VP of Audience Development Kati Tucker

Connectiv member Omeda is doing an excellent series calledOmeda Asks. In June, the Q&A spotlighted Kati Tucker, vice president of audience development at SIPA member Modern Distribution Management (Gale Media).

Here’s an excerpt:

“Since I started at MDM in January, I put a lot of energy into growing our newsletter because I saw a lot of potential. There was a large gap between the number of people in our database and the amount of people receiving our newsletter. I wanted to create new email promotions and gate more of our site to increase our overall audience and those subscribing to our newsletter.

“Over the last few months, with COVID-19 and the pandemic happening, we have followed along with the strategy of some other large media publishers like the New York Times to gate all our COVID-19 related content. We created a hard gate where readers had to provide their email address. This has been great for getting more people into the top of the funnel. From there, we can push them through a marketing automation journey that encourages them to sign up for our newsletter. Through all of these efforts, we have been able to grow our newsletter audience by 8.6%.”
