Writer Office Hours 📅
Have questions about publishing, growing, or going paid on Substack?
The Substack team, and your fellow writers, are here to help! Our team will answer questions and share insights with you in the threads today from 10 a.m.–11 a.m. PST / 1 p.m.–2 p.m. EST. We encourage writers to stick around after the hour and continue the conversation together.
To help organize conversations, we’re opening two discussion threads to explore distinct topics. Jump into a thread to join the conversation most relevant to you.
Launching paid subscriptions: Writers often ask, “when should I turn on paid subscriptions?” If you are ready to do so, or curious about testing the waters, we’ll discuss strategy so you can have a successful launch. Join the thread.
Collaborate to grow: Features like Recommendations, cross-posting (which now you can post to the web), mentions, and Notes support cross-promotions amongst writers. None of these tools require the writer to be marketing-savvy, and none rely on clickbait or gimmicky packaging, but writers are using them to drive 40% of all free subscriptions and 20% of paid subscriptions across the Substack network. We’ll swap tips and advice on collaborating to grow in today’s thread. Join the thread.
We’ll host Office Hours again next Thursday. Save it to your calendar so you don’t miss it.
