Boost your newsletter growth with Redirects
Increase your open-rate and subscriber loyalty by redirecting users after they sign up to your newsletter.
G’day G’day 👋
I’m back in your inbox after a little hiatus! Last time you heard from me I was in a start-up hostel living the “Digital Nomad dream” in the tropical paradise that is Bali. Turns out, from living on a motorbike and driving through the remote villages of Vietnam, spontaneously house sitting a Welsh Springer Spaniel in Berlin’s winter, Ko Pha Ngan full-moon rituals, a summerless Christmas in England’s country-side, Sober psychedelic trips, contracting dengue fever - and some Portuguese waves - you can get a bit burnt out. So I’m back in kiwi land, New Zealand.
Now, onto the star of the show - the new SubstackAPI feature to supercharge your newsletter's growth. Let's talk about…
🚀 Redirect after sign-up
Growing your newsletter is about more than just snagging emails. It's about rolling out that virtual welcome mat by crafting a unique journey that keeps readers hooked. Here's the playbook:
👋 Personalized Welcome: When someone signs up, greet them like an old friend. A warm welcome sets the stage for a loyal reader relationship.
🎁 Extra Value: Deliver more than expected. Shower your subscribers with exclusive resources, tools or tips. Producing an instant win can reinforce their decision to welcome you into their inbox.
📚 Top Picks: Tease them with your best work. Showcase a popular post to give them a taste of the value they're in for.
💰 Upsell with Finesse: If you've got a premium subscription, this is your chance to sell it to them. Tempt your subscribers with the benefits of upgrading.
Start redirecting with SubstackAPI Redirects:
Your Substack newsletter can now utilize the same growth method used by the biggest newsletters. If you're not already using it, all you have to do is integrate my free tool, Custom Substack Embed, and enable Redirects.

👀 On the horizon:
📋 Export Captured Subscribers: Soon, you'll be able to export all subscribers captured across your site with the Custom Substack Embed tool - even those who never confirmed their email!
✉️ No More Double Opt-In: Say goodbye to double opt-in hassles! It’s been a game of cat-and-mouse with Substack, but I’m working on a foolproof method to capture subscribers without requiring them to confirm their email.
💥 Popups: Did you know a popup could increase your conversion rate by 11.06 percent? Capture sign-ups anywhere after engagement or roll out the virtual welcome mat with an eye-catching popup.
🎉 Landing Pages: Give your newsletter a facelift! Replace that default landing page seamlessly with one optimized for growth, complete with A/B split testing, tracking, and analytics. This feature, soon to be branded under supastack.com, can be utilized to grow newsletters on all platforms, not just Substack!
What's got you stoked? Let me know what you’re most excited to see and I’ll prioritize shipping that tool first:
