Your public newsletter feed is like a mini-blog for your newsletter content.
With newsletter feeds, you can easily share your newsletter content with others and provide them with an easy way to sign up to your list!
Every broadcast you send or have previously sent to your subscribers can be made public, and you can also limit access to paid subscribers using paid posts!
This is great if you're looking for a simple way to share your newsletter with potential subscribers who want to preview your content before they sign up.
