What is a Substack?
Substack helps anyone set up a blog and email newsletter. No tech knowledge is required. Without ads and algorithms to get in the way, you can sustain a direct relationship with your readers and retain full control over your creative work.
Do I need to pay for Substack?
It’s free to get started on Substack. If you turn on paid subscriptions, Substack will keep a 10% cut of revenues for operating costs like development and customer support. There are no hidden fees and we only make money when writers do.
Do I own what I publish on Substack?
You will always own your content and your payment relationships with your subscribers. We make it easy to import and export your archive, email list, and payments information to and from other platforms.
Will Substack help me grow my audience?
Yes. More than 30% of all new free subscriptions
and around 10% of paid subscriptions to Substacks come from within our network.
How do I move my past work to Substack?
If you already have an audience on Wordpress, Mailchimp, Medium, Tumblr, or another platform, you can easily import your posts and your email list
in the Substack setup process.
