πŸͺ„ Magic Links

Tired: requiring visitors to enter their email into a subscribe form on your landing page.

Wired: allowing people to auto-subscribe to your newsletter with just a single click.

With Magic Links you can create a unique link that is compatible with over a dozen email platforms. Any recipient who clicks on the hyperlink will automatically be subscribed to your newsletter without needing to enter in their email or go through the normal subscribe process.

Just click on Magic Links in your sidenav under Grow, select the email platform of choice, and copy and paste the URL wherever you'd like. Under Advanced Options you also have the ability to add UTM parameters to further track and attribute new subscriptions.

Magic Links are compatible with the following email platforms:

  • beehiiv

  • Active Campaign

  • AWeber

  • ConvertKit

  • Drip

  • Hubspot

  • Klaviyo

  • Mailchimp

  • Campaign Monitor

  • MailerLite

  • Constant Contact

  • PostUp

  • Sailthru

  • Others that support dynamic content

πŸ‘πŸΎ Recommendations via email

Two weeks ago we launched Recommendations, which allows you to seamlessly recommend other newsletters (and inversely, have others recommend your newsletter). In just a few short weeks we've seen thousands of new subscriptions created via this feature.

And as of today, you can now add Recommendations directly into your newsletter with just a few clicks in the editor.

This feature also leverages the power of Magic Links to allow subscribers to signup with just a single click.

tl;dr β€” you drop recommended publications into your newsletter with a few clicks. Subscribers signup to these newsletters with a single click from their inbox. You drive more signups, and other newsletters can do the same for you πŸ’ͺ🏽.

πŸ’₯ Email Blast UI

A month ago when we launched Email Blasts (i.e. one-off sends to an individual segment of your list), you had to create a segment first, then create the blast from the segmentation UI.

We recently streamlined this considerably so you can seamlessly create email blasts anytime, directly from the main dashboard.

And when creating an email blast, you can now select from a dropdown of all of your segments to choose which you want to send to.

Note: email blasts are only available on our Scale plan. To learn more about our premium plans, click here.

πŸƒπŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ Slim email templates

There's no action needed from you on this one, but behind-the-scenes we recently launched a few massive updates to your email template. The end result:

  1. The "weight" of your emails should be between 20-40% lighter, meaning your emails are much less likely to be clipped by Gmail.

  2. Your emails should be well supported in dark mode across various clients.

  3. All hyperlinks now have improved security, resulting in improved deliverability and a superior browsing experience for your readers.

πŸ–₯ New dashboard

If you've logged in anytime in the past week then this isn't necessarily news to you, but we recently launched a new and improved dashboard. Expect further enhancements here over the next several weeks as well πŸ˜‹
