Clark Winter is creating a newsletter

I started Coletrickle with a simple idea, "let's make waking up in the morning better."

No, Coletrickle is not a better alarm clock or beautiful massage therapist, but rather a digest of things you actually want to read about and listen to. Coletrickle is a daily lifestyle newsletter focused on music, photography, travel, and generally cool sh*t.

But don't listen to me. As one reader put it, "Coletrickle is the perfectly curated mix of images, music, and personalities with a dash of news. Coletrickle is the interesting, well traveled and super hot stranger at a dinner party you want to sit next to. ”

The Vision
For the last two and half years, I have built up this newsletter as a labor of love. Aggregating content, preparing the newsletter, and the interactions with the readers on a daily basis are incredibly enjoyable, but they are also time-consuming and ultimately expensive.

My goal is to turn this dream project into an enriched and dynamic business that can benefits both readers and brands. 

Use of Funds
  • MailChimp: The service we use to email posts out to the subscription list. This fee grows as the subscriber list grows.
  • Facelift (ongoing newsletter development, brand design, web enhancement): Squarespace has been a great tool to get me where we are today, but the brand needs a facelift to move to a more dynamic newsletter with continuous content, music, photography, shop and web support.
  • Content: Most important. The soul that gives Coletrickle life. With more time and resources, we will be able to get to know products, brands, places better and provide more synthesized and detailed content. Furthermore, readers will reap the benefits in ways of promotion travel perks, discounts to brands, and exclusive access to products & services.
  • Promotion: The larger the community, the better perks. When we announce a new post on social media, this makes sure that the announcement gets onto 1/3 or 1/2 of our followers' News Feeds.
  • Me: As previously noted, this labor of love is my baby, but it can’t go on forever as a negative draw. 
  • Live: the beauty of this newsletter is the ability to virtually connect with some many people, but the dream is to bring that community together offline. In the future, there is a dream of a coletrickle festival where music, art, food, and cultural experiences can all meet at one place and time. 
After over 500 issues, I still enjoy putting together each issue as much as I did on Day One. Thank you for reading, listening, and consuming what I send you on a daily basis.
