Gather Subscribers From Different Platforms In One Place, Automatically (Free Template Included)
Take your audience with you
I have another freebie for you. I created a Notion template to automatically gather newsletter subscribers from one or more platforms in one place.
I’ve switched newsletter platforms a few times in the past. From ConvertKit to Substack, from Substack to Revue and back to Substack.
If I wanted to switch providers, I’d have to export all subscriber data from various places and import that into the new tool.
Before we continue, make sure to try the Substack app for iOS if you haven’t! It’s a great reading experience.
That’s why I created a Notion template that automatically gathers all my subscriber data from different platforms in one place.
This has multiple upsides:
✔ Backup. I have an automatic copy of subscribers in my Notion workspace, in case something happens with the platform.
✔ No hassle. Since this workflow runs automatically, I don’t have to worry about losing data, managing new subscribers, manually copying them over, etc.
✔ Filtering. By tagging subscriber data with relevant info within Notion and via the automation itself, I can filter for and target specific user groups.
To utilize the power of this Notion template, you need Zapier, an automation tool. Here’s how you do it:
You create a free account with Zapier.
Then, you create a new Zap, as they call it.
You connect Zapier to your newsletter provider of choice, in my case Revue. But you’ll find many of the popular options here, including ConvertKit, Mailchimp, MailerLite, Gumroad, Sendinblue, etc.
Afterward, you connect your Notion account and the correct database.
Lastly, you connect the appropriate Notion fields to the Revue values, the email field to the email address from Revue, first and last name to their respective Notion columns.
Additionally, I manually add the source (as plain text) to the Notion database. In my case, I write “Revue” to the Notion source column. This way, I know the subscriber came from Revue. If you add another Zap for a second platform like ConvertKit, you repeat steps 1–5 and add the source “ConvertKit” as plain text.
Do it yourself
Let’s stop with the theory. Go try it for yourself!
Afterward, each new subscriber will automatically be added to your Notion database with all relevant info.
The bottom line
You need an email list. This will be your audience, your true fans, people who want to receive your creations in their inbox. It’s powerful.
With my simple, free Notion template, you can automate the process of gathering and managing your subscriber data quickly and easily.
