Have questions about publishing, growing, or going paid on Substack?
The Substack team, and your fellow writers, are here to help!
We’re gathering the writer community and members of the Substack team together in this discussion thread to answer writer questions for an hour. Drop your questions in the thread by leaving a comment, and we’ll do our best to share knowledge and tips.
Our team will be answering questions and sharing insights with you in the thread today from 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. EDT. We encourage writers to stick around after the hour and continue the conversation together.
Some updates and reminders from the Substack team:
Product news: Earlier this week we shared a rundown of what we’ve released in the past few weeks—from gift referrals to serialization tools and homepage customization. Check out what’s new!
Android app: Readers can now read, watch, and listen to your writing in one dedicated space on Android. The new app amplifies the network effects that already exist on Substack, making it easier for writers to gain new subscribers, and for readers to explore and sample Substacks they might otherwise not have found. Learn more.
Motivate your readers to upgrade their subscription: There's more than one way to convert free readers to paying subscribers. The savviest writers and podcasters determine what to offer their free vs. paid subscribers through reflecting on their audience, business model, and value proposition. Learn from them in our latest resource on free vs. paid strategy.
