Monetization 🀝 Guaranteed

Turn your newsletter into a revenue machine.

We formally launched the beehiiv Ad Network back in September with a simple goal: to help newsletters seamlessly monetize with premium advertisements.

In just a few months since then, over a thousand newsletters have earned ad revenue via our platform, amounting to over a million dollars in payouts to publishers.

However, we built our platform to democratize monetization for everyone, not just a select few thousand newsletters. So, we had to step it up a notch…

Introducing: our monetization guarantee 🀝.

Starting today β€” all users on the Scale plan are guaranteed ad placements.

What is the beehiiv Ad Network?

It's the first and only newsletter ad network seamlessly integrated into your workflow, providing an end-to-end solution.

With just a few clicks, you can have your newsletter sponsored by some of the world's most popular brands, earning real revenue with minimal effort.

  • Browse and accept available ad opportunities

  • Easily drop an ad into your newsletter directly within the editor

  • Receive automated reports and payouts $$$

With the launch of our monetization guarantee today, there are only two requirements:

  1. ActiveΒ Scale Plan: Ensures you have full access to all of our premium features.

  2. Stripe account connected to your beehiiv account: This allows us to seamlessly deposit earnings into your account.

Previously, scaling an advertising based newsletter required a dedicated team to handle sales, data, copywriting, tracking, and invoicing. But with beehiiv, it’s never been easier.

What You Do:

βœ… Send newsletters β€” just keep doing what you’re doing

What We Handle:

βœ… Sales β€” presenting you opportunities from premium brands

So how does it work?

We created a quick 3-minute tutorial walking you through the entire process end-to-end.

    • No, as long as you are on the Scale plan and have synced your Stripe account, you will be eligible to receive ad opportunities.

  • How many ad opportunities should I expect?

    • We are continuously sending ad opportunities to newsletters who match the criteria of our ad partners. However you are guaranteed at least one opportunity per month. However, most newsletters receive several opportunities per week.

    • Payments are made on the 20th of each month for all placements ran in the previous month.

      • Example: On March 20th you will receive payment for all ads ran in February.
