    That's always a sign of a good newsletter! 😉

    What do you use to manage your newsletter sponsors btw? I'm looking for users to try for this tool I'm building to manage newsletter sponsorships: http://getsponsy.com

    If you are interested in trying it out let me know and I'll add you to the close beta! Would be awesome to have your feedback!

      Hey my man, would love to sign up :)

      1. 1

        Cool, just invited you! Would love to hear your thoughts about it!

        1. 1

          I just signed up, a really nice flow.

          The only negative is the description text on the landing page. It's just one block, I wish I could format it a bit nice, like line breaks and maybe bold text.

          Also, I can't seem to save my subscriber, click rate, etc.

            Also another bug is I select the 18 March for a slot and when I save it says the 17 March

            1. 2

              Thanks a lot for the feedback and bugs! We are going to fix the bugs today for you. And I see your point of the description formatting, we'll try to implement that asap too.

              I'll email you about the bugs!

      Hey hey, just had an awesome launch yesterday , One of the most requested feature request was a newsletter, which I am planning to start. maybe sponsy would be a good choice for me.😀.

      1. 1

        Hey @Tomshwa congrats on the launch too, looks pretty good!

        You can definitely give Sponsy a try if you start a newsletter. My advise for sponsorships it is to first build a but of an audience (100+ subscribers) and then focus on sponsors, but there’s no harm in start looking for sponsors early on, and Sponsy is free to use and easy to set up.

        I can see the benefit of product owners advertising on your newsletter for extra exposure on their launch or product ;)

        P.S I noticed the layout of Firehunt doesn’t render so good on mobile, I can send you a screenshot if you want. :)

          Hey sircon, please do send me an screenshot if this is an bug, I need to fix it quickly.
          Also I will take your advice and wait for 100+ subscribers before looking for sponsors. Though we have some request of sponsorship for our front page.
          (Are you on safari, there was some bug which I fixed today regarding Firehunt not being rendered properly on safari.)

          1. 1

            Yes, it was on Safari and I just checked it again and it seems to be all fixed ;)

            Regarding, sponsorship don't follow my advice blindly, there are a million ways to do the same thing. If you already have some interest for some sponsorships I think you should take it, probably the same people would be interested as well on sponsoring a possible newsletter.

            Any time you want to try Sponsy, feel free to sign up for the closed beta and ping me on Twitter @sircon or @getsponsy, or by email [email protected] and I'll add you to the beta testers. The platform is free and it takes a few minutes to set it up and have it live!
