I've been frustrated recently with doing lots of outreach to get newsletter sponsors this month. (If you do want to sponsor my newsletters, you can email me at email@example.com). So I'm going to be starting a membership feature using Ghost.
I've really been inspired by Pat Walls and Anne-Laure le Cunff and their moves to get MRR on their publications. Pat is charging $19 a month for Starter Story's Pro membership and Anne-Laure has made over $5k so far from adding a membership tier.
I have a few ideas about how mine will look. I don't think a paywall is necessarily the way I will do it. I may just give earlier access to content, just like Scott's Cheap Flights gives out flight deals earlier to their Pro members. I expect I will give some ebooks away as an incentive for people to sign up for a yearly deal. I have lots of content from No CS Degree that I can re-package into ebooks and really distil down.
I also want to launch with a cool video on Product Hunt! 🥳
