Due to a couple of podcasts that mentioned different services as well as build-from-scratch solutions, I decided to not waste time building a too complicated mash up of different services, probably connected through Zapier. Although that is also how I have my other newsletter running, for now I wanted to focus on growing it, providing good content and having a pay structure that simply works.
Because of the above I quickly settled for Substack. I set it up to be all ready for what was to come.
For some reason I decided to do the initial contact and collection of the first email addresses with Carrd, Zapier and GSuite... mostly to give the
@rootstocks.org domain its credit.
May not have been the wisest of choices, as Substack ask a very high price ($50/m) for setting up a custom domain... so for now that will ask from the initial subscribers to also accept
[email protected] as
from address, but we will work that out later.
Seeing how Substack is developing and how it has a lot of options for gifting subscriptions and discounts, it is really is a good choice and the 10% seems reasonable... for now.
