Creator Economy SendStack - Privacy-first newsletter platform
SendStack is a new newsletter platform oriented to user privacy. I find the writing experience and the subscriber management better than ConvertKit and Revue.
So I distribute my articles via SendStack.
Customizable subscription forms that you can embed in your website.
Website for Newsletter
You get a website for the newsletter, and you can find the website created for me here.
SendStack subscribers management is sleek and clean. You have a single unified list of subscribers. Anyone that drops out (unsubscribed) is removed - come to think about it - you do not need this.
Subscribers can be tagged, and you see who is assigned to each tag. A subscriber can be assigned multiple tags.
So you can run email marketing on SendStack. Sort of a simple MailChimp.
The Writing Experience
A good rich text editor with a clean setup of message subject and preview.
You assign a tag to the message to select the recipients.
Once you finish writing, you can send a preview to specific email messages.
And once you are ready, you send the newsletter.
Messages carry no tracking, and it is well known that open tracking is not a good metric.
With today's privacy-minded audience, it is better to be privacy minded.
You can integrate SendStack with API calls to add and remove subscribers, which is how I add new subscribers from my blog.
Integration to Slack and Email lets you get notified on subscribing and unsubscribing.
It is $19 for the first 1,000 subscribers. And then, it increases by $6 for each additional 1,000 subscribers. So the free tier is about a third of what is offered for free ConvertKit.
Yet, I found it much more convenient for sending blog articles than ConvertKit.
For the freelancer, creator, and solopreneur - SendStack is an excellent choice.
