The newsletter editions are typically rich with images and videos. They range from shorter to heftier reads, depending on the topic. Build A Brand is set to a weekly publishing schedule, but the new editions are released much less frequently. This fact would disqualify most newsletters from being included in this list, but Build A Brand is interesting enough to subscribe to if Kait decides to start releasing articles more frequently.
