About Tripper’s newsletter

I find it annoying to be bombarded with emails after signing up for a newsletter – especially when the signup process doesn’t say much about how many emails I’ll receive or when the newsletter sender changes the rules in the middle of the game. I believe it’s distasteful and a breach of confidence and chances are that I’ll unsubscribe without thinking twice.

I wanted the Tripper newsletter to be different and I wanted it to cater to readers with different interests but without straying from the topic of sustainable tourism, of course.

The newsletter is sent on the last day of every month with a round-up of Tripper’s blog posts of the month and a round-up of news regarding sustainable cultural tourism (in English), selected by me.

Rest assured that:

  1. The email you use to sign up won’t be shared with anyone else, not even Tripper’s sponsors and commercial partners.
  2. I stand by my commitment to only send you one newsletter once a month. All upcoming events and special deals are shared on social media, so make sure you’re also following Tripper on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.

New blog posts delivered to your inbox every month

Disclaimers and FAQs

Trusting me with your personal email address is a commitment I will always respect, as well as your desire to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. One of my biggest pet peeves as a newsletter subscriber myself is receiving emails that either isn’t what I signed up for or that I can’t unsubscribe with a simple click on a button.

If any of the following FAQs don’t address any concerns you might have, feel free to email me and I will add a new answer to your question here.

1. Why do you ask for my name and country besides my email address?

I like to personalize my emails, however, the name field is not a mandatory one. If you want to fill in that field, you can choose to write only your first name, an alias, or a nickname; it’s totally up to you. As for the country field (also optional), that’s because I want all my subscribers to get the newsletter at the same time, according to their timezone. So, wherever you are in the world, the monthly newsletter goes out on the last day of the month at 1 pm.

2. Will you use my email to flood me with affiliate marketing links later?

Absolutely not. I only include affiliate links on selected Tripper’s blog posts (all links are clearly marked with a *), on a specific page for Sustainable Cultural Tourism Resources, and on the blog’s sidebar.

3. Will you use the newsletter to try to sell me something?

I will never trick you into buying one of my products or services. Whatever product or service I launch in the future will be presented in a specific blog post and promoted on social media. Blog posts are always shared on Tripper’s newsletters so, eventually, you will read about these products or services if you click on the link but you’ll have no obligation to buy it.

4. To how many lists will you add my email address?

By subscribing to this newsletter, your email address will only be added to one list (the only one I have now, actually). If, in the future, I need to segment Tripper’s newsletter subscribers, I will tell you so in that month’s newsletter or in a separate email. You will, then, have the possibility to click on a specific link to be added to that list or simply ignore it.
