Every broadcast you send can be made public.
That's right! Each broadcast you send or have previously sent to your subscribers can be made public, allowing anyone to read them on your public newsletter feed!
Think of it like a mini-blog for your newsletter content.
But what if you want to keep some content private for your paid subscribers? What if you want to tease the paid content you have to your audience? You can do that with our paid posts feature! 💸
Let's quickly walk through how to set this up in ConvertKit.
How to set up paid posts in ConvertKit
1. Create your paid newsletter
First things first, make sure you've created a members-only newsletter in ConvertKit using our subscription option. Learn how to do that here.
2. Set up your public newsletter feed
Next, you'll want to set up your creator profile for your newsletter feed. To do this, visit this link: https://app.convertkit.com/profile.
Here you can customize your avatar, name, bio, and custom domain. These will all show up on your newsletter feed like this:
After you've customized your feed, you'll want to select your newsletter product from the dropdown menu in your creator profile (note: this option will only show up if you have an active subscription product).
Choose the paid newsletter that you previously created from step one:
3. Share your paid content
Whether you're sending a new broadcast or using a previously sent email, you can lock specific content for your paid subscribers.
For a new broadcast that hasn't sent yet, click the 'Share' tab from the top right of the broadcast editor.
Near the bottom of the page, toggle the option that says' 'Post to my public feed'.
Once you've turned this on, you'll see the option to lock this content for 'Paid Subscribers Only':
For a previously sent broadcast, find your sent broadcast from your broadcast dashboard and click on the subject line to open it.
Then on the right hand side, toggle the button near the bottom that says 'Enabled on public feeds' so that it turns green. From there, you can toggle on the 'Paid subscribers only' content.
4. Admire your work
Now that this content is available for paid subscribers only, here’s what the broadcast will look like for non-paid subscribers in your newsletter feed:
For paid subscribers, they will be able to log in using the email address associated with their paid subscription.
For non-paid subscribers to gain access to any paid-posts, they’ll have to subscribe and pay for your paid newsletter. By doing so, they’ll unlock all past paid-posts and get exclusive paid content you curate and send.
