Session 2.6—Substack's Community Features

Go from someone with a lifeless email list to someone with an engaged community of subscribers

In part three, you’ll go from someone with a lifeless email list to someone with an engaged community of subscribers and readers.

We're going to talk about Substack’s community features and how they can work for you and the ways to create community and get real engagement. On other platforms, you have a vertical relationship with your subscribers. You send to your mailing list. Occasionally, they email you back.

Substack, on the other hand, gives you a horizontal relationship with your subscribers, which creates a community.
