Join our Tribe of Publishers!

if you publish an email newsletter, e-magazine or blog that serves the lifestyle niche… our tribe could be a perfect networking fit for you…

Warm greetings to you…

I’m delighted to see you here…  and looking forward to finding great synergies for us to work together.

At It’s My Life, we have a vision to create nurturing ecosystems where like-minded folk — guided by shared values rooted in spiritual principles — can interact, network and support each other’s business journey.

One such ecosystem we are building is the “It’s My Life” Tribe of Publishers…

The Tribe of Publishers is a community-centered network for e-publishers who serve the LIFESTYLE niche — who are interested in extending their publishing + marketing reach via a respectful, authentic and non-platform network — and who would love to be a valued member of a caring, sharing & supportive tribe where everyone benefits from the value-added ecosystem.

To get the best out of our network and to evaluate if we are a good fit for each other… please have a look at our Membership Package below (it’s free to join, by the way)…

Community-Centered Membership Package

1who is this for?

“It’s My Life” Tribe of Publishers is a good fit for those who publish an email newsletter, ezine, e-magazine or blog that serves the LIFESTYLE niche…

  • independent fashion & lifestyle brands — slow, handcrafted & artisanal niches

  • artists, artisans, makers, designers, creatives, authors

  • micro & small businesses with bespoke programs, products & services that support the well-being of mind, body & spirit — eg. coaching, counseling  |  destinations, travel, retreats  |  food, dining  |  health, nutrition, fitness  |  home, decor, feng shui  |  mental & spiritual wellness  |  parenting  |  style, beauty  |  etc

    Note:  Your content & offerings are resonant with It’s My Life 

Independent e-publishers, like us, in this particular niche — where value creation and compelling storytelling are integral to brand-building — may find ourselves at a crossroads:  where we are trying to preserve our agency + value propositions in an algorithm- and AI-driven environment… while looking for organic ways to promote our products & services…  and finding that the platforms no longer serve us well.

This is where our unique non-platform model can offer e-publishers in this niche a serene & authentic alternative… away from the noise and confusion that beset today’s platforms.

2membership perks

wider reach + ad opportunities + independence

  • Cross-promotions:  A simple one-for-one reciprocal exchange of promotions in each other’s e-publications

  • Advertising revenue:  Opportunities to monetize your e-publication when our networked advertisers take up your paid advertising spaces

    Pre-conditions for advertising revenue:  Your list must be organic and you’re willing to provide the publishing schedule + other pertinent info regarding your list.

    Integrity:  Ads & promotions are carefully curated to preserve the integrity of our publishing network and, as far as possible, we will carry out due diligence to ensure that products & services advertised are as claimed.

In our tribe, we respect your decision to decline any reciprocal or paid ads/promotions that you feel are not aligned with your publication & audience — You will never lose control over your publication… nor be held hostage by nameless, faceless, bot-driven algorithms.  This respectful, community-centered & nurturing approach is an important cornerstone of the non-platform model that is the foundation of how we do things at It’s My Life.

3tracking and feedback

Tracking & Feedback are critical tools that inform us of what’s working (or not) in our promotions or campaigns…  what improvements to make, and where/how to deploy our energy & resources moving forward.

We will share with you the Insights for each piece published/promoted in our email editions or email marketing campaigns…  and over time, those in our networked e-publications too.  We can work closely with you… allowing our Feedback mechanism & Insights to guide our next steps toward improving the performance of each future piece.

Feedback sessions:  We’re available to work closely with you, engaging in a feedback loop so that each piece or promotion that goes out is an evolved & improved iteration of previous ones.

Iterative approach:  This approach allows us to continually develop valuable insights as we improve results, letting the feedback itself guide our next steps.
