Earning Money from your site

Paid Newsletters

Using Premium Content blocks, you can automatically email your paying followers and subscribers with new premium content that you publish on your website.

While anyone can follow (or subscribe to) your website to receive email notifications of new posts, content created within the Premium Content blocks will only be emailed to your paying subscribers.

How do Subscribers see Premium Content?

Your followers and readers can see the premium content they’re paying for in two places:

  1. Directly on your website where you inserted the Premium Content block.
  2. Delivered directly to their email inbox in the form of a newsletter.

Paying subscribers will receive an email with all of the content of a post — both the general public content and the premium content. Non-paying followers will only see the public content and a button to subscribe to your premium content.

Creating a Paid Newsletter

Use the Premium Content block to select which premium content you’d like to be included in your paid newsletter – this can include text, photos, videos, and anything else you’d like to include in that block. If you’re setting up a subscription for the first time, you can determine the price and interval (monthly or yearly) within the block settings directly.

Turning on Email Notifications

Once you have your subscription set up, you will find the email settings either through the block editor “Manage your subscriptions” link (pictured below) or within the Earn tab in your account.

You will then see your subscriptions listed. Click on the appropriate subscription and then click the ellipses menu (the three dots) and select Edit.

Once in the Edit a payment plan section, click the Email tab. Select the option to “Email newly published posts to your customers.”

You can also set a custom message to new subscribers who have signed up to receive emails in the Custom confirmation message text box.

Click Save to activate the email notifications to your paid subscribers. The new premium content will be emailed to them automatically.
