Hi all, my name is Mark, and I'm a reporter for Business Insider who covers the media industry and the creator economy. Here is my Twitter (https://twitter.com/MarkStenberg3).
I also write a personal newsletter about media innovation, called Medialyte (https://medialyte.substack.com/), and I'm about to hit 1,000 subscribers after almost a year of writing a weekly post.
I would love to turn on my paywall and finally start making money, but I know when I do that, I'll have to start producing more content or I'll basically stop growing.
(Because I only write once weekly, if I paywall that, I would have to write another post for my free readers, or just make it such that the "free experience" is just an article every other week.)
I've considered advertising, but it seems like a lot of work to keep up with on a consistent basis. Has anyone else dealt with this issue?
What did you do? Or what do you think I should do?
