Growing your newsletter can be challenging. Especially when starting out and few know about your work.
Having your newsleter listed in specialized directories that attract potentially interested readers is a valuable discoverability opportunity.
These directories are databases that let readers search or browse the entries by category. Sometimes the directories share the newsletters to their social channels or in email updates. The continuous flow of subscriptions coming from directories, even if small, adds up.
Below is a list of directories you can submit your newsletter to. I included only those that approve all or most submissions. I omitted some highly selective directories that focus on the largest or most influential newsletters.
Maybe it's just an impression. However, I’ve been noticing a small but steady flow of subscriptions since submitting my newsletter to several directories. It's just a trickle right now. But noticeable.
I'll keep this list up to date.
