Can you make money on a newsletter?
Welcome back, reporters! If you noticed these emails started looking a little different, you are perceptive. Basically, we got so big that MailChimp wouldn't let us freeload anymore (ha cha, we’re going places!).
So I switched to Substack, a free newsletter delivery service.
The downside of Substack is that it’s WAY more bare bones than MailChimp, in pretty much everything. Analytics, design, social sharing, payment. They do offer a feature to turn your newsletter into a paid podcast, if you’re gunning hard core for that Millennial dollar.
In fact, newsletters are one of the best ways to turn lurkers into paying subscribers for news, according to recent studies. So… time to experiment?
