Hi Nancy, you mean a program where I share tis how to use Medium (and othet platforms) together with Substack, drive your email subscribers, gain momentum and reach more people? Is this your idea? What would you be interested in specifically? Thanks a lot❤️

Yes. I was working with a coach who was a Medium specialist good but Not enough. Exactly what you’re saying plus maybe accountability for writing posting.

How to share a pdf or create eBook too

I have a wordpress blog too and am taking an online course in content creation on coursera.

Working alone trying to figure all out is not working for me

Thanks

Hi Nancy, I offer coachings via email or Skype. If you're interested just send me an email mail@kristinagod.com

My next free slot is in February. Mayb that's an idea.

Articles I recommend: https://kristinagod.medium.com/if-you-write-on-medium-you-can-also-self-publish-an-ebook-on-gumroad-530678a2e26d

It's about creating an ebook but I guess you would like to know how to create the book itself?

Could you share the link to your blog? Coursera is great.

A cohort-based course would be great for you. I offered 2 Medium Kickstarter Courses last year and one for people who want to create their own online courses. Would this be something for you?

Kristina - I signed up for Substack, followed all the directions, and ran into a problem. My readers who wanted to subscribe were greeted with an error message, and no one was able to subscribe.

"This connect account cannot currently make live charges. The 'requirements .disabled_reason' property on the account will provide information about why this account is currently disabled. If you are a customer trying to make a purchase, please contact the owner of this site. Your transaction has not been processed."

I can find no help desk, just a bunch of FAQs, none of which fit.

Help!

Hi Tom, did you get any help from Substack and how did you solve the problem? Sorry for replying so late. Just saw your comment.

Yes. It apparently took a bit longer for Substack to get everything in place. A couple of days later, my first paid subscriber appeared. Unfortunately, I have several older folks who wish to pay with a check or cash. One 93 year old gentleman sent me four $20 bills in a card. I used my own credit card to award him with a "gift subscription." That seemed to work. Thanks for responding.

Hi Kristina - Just joined Substack and it's up to $8.00 a month or $80.00 a year for new subscribers. Inflation, I guess.

Hi Tom 👋 welcome to Substack. As far as I know you can decide whether you want to offer a paid subscription for 5 or 75 dollars. Here's the link to calculate how many subscribers you need that pay 5 to 75 dolllars per month to earn x amount of money per month: https://substack.com/going-paid

Hope this helps.

Hi Kristina! I hope all is well with you and family. I found this very interesting! I've had a Substack newsletter for a little over a year now and I'm trying to build my subscribers. Anywhere I can go to get advice on that?

Hi Rosa, Everything is fine. I'm pretty busy with family obligations but I'm hapy I could share my first Substack this year today😊😉 Could you be a bit more specific? Do you mean you have your newsletter and want to grow your free subscriber base? Or do you mean you're thinking about going paid? Many thanks and I will write a story about this topic soon. Hugs!

Hi Kristina! Thanks so much for taking the time to respond. I have an existing newsletter with only about 50 or so subscribers. For the time being, I want to grow my subscriber base with the hopes of going paid in the future.

Hi Victoria, liked your latest shorts! Side Hustle Club on Medium now has 5K subs on Substack and now goes the paid route too. I guess for us it's best to grow our free subscriber base and then offer more value to paid subs.

Kristina thanks for the message. Sorry for the late reply. I will check them out. I need to check out your shorts I've been a bit behind. Hope all is we.

I haven’t in a long while. Lost motivation. I’m thinking of coming back but if I do I want to narrow down on a niche.
