Session 1.2—Models of Successful Substacks

As we build your Substack, we want to make sure that you are modeling it on those who’ve been successful.

Substack is its own world. Certain things work on here and certain things don’t.

These are types of Substacks that work. Substack is wholly individual, but this will give you a framework that you can't find anywhere else.

Types of Substacks we go through in this session:

  • Practical Substacks

  • Curated Substacks

  • Reported Substacks

  • Literary and artistic Substacks

  • Teaching Substacks

  • Publication Substacks

Watch the session to find yours. Even if you’ve been on Substack for a while, this will help you reframe and gain confidence in your Substack, which leads to growth.
