Our Network, Your Growth: Steady's New Recommendation Feature

Hey there, 

When was the last time you listened to a friend's recommendation? For most of us, it happens on a daily basis. Word of mouth is one of the most powerful tools in marketing, and it can bring your newsletter promotion up a notch. 

I'm Flavia, and this is the Steady Growth Newsletter, your guide to mastering the membership game. Today, we're diving into the world of recommendations—with some exciting news.

We launched our recommendation feature!

Writers supporting each other have been pivotal for content discovery since the early days of blogging. It's easier to capture someone's attention after receiving an endorsement from a trusted source. That's why we've spent the last few weeks developing a new tool to allow you to do just that: say hello to our new recommendation feature!

How to use It

Getting started with Steady recommendations is easy and intuitive. Check out this quick tutorial: (Abre numa nova janela)

The coolest part? Anytime you recommend a media maker on Steady, they receive an immediate notification, boosting the chances of you getting a recommendation back from them. And if you want to ask for a recommendation directly, you can connect with fellow media makers by joining our community on Slack (Abre numa nova janela)

What to expect

Our early experiments showed a clear result – recommendations are a game-changer for expanding your reach. In the past six months, approximately 20% of new subscribers on Steady originated from the beta version of recommendations. For climate journalism newsletter Treibhauspost (Abre numa nova janela), this percentage surged to 71%. Treibhauspost journalist Manuel Kronenberg said:

We at Treibhauspost put a lot of heart and soul into our issues. There's hardly any time left to advertise and attract new readers. Steady is now doing this work for us.

It only takes a few simple steps to begin leveraging Steady’s network effect too. Just hit the button below:

Other exciting features this month

We've rolled out a couple more features in March. Here’s what’s new:

  • Introducing the sponsorship block for your newsletter! Now, you can effectively pitch your sponsors and continue diversifying your revenue streams.

  • We've made several adjustments to copies and translations to ensure consistency and style across the platform.

I hope these additions enhance your experience. But before you go back to creating, hold on a second – we have an offer for you. 

Recommend Steady (we’ll make it worthwhile) 😊

If you love Steady and know someone who could benefit, spread the word by sharing the recommendation link in your backend (hit "Referrals" in the left menu).

We will share with you half of our revenues for every media maker who launches a Steady project upon your recommendation—up to 300€ for each media maker you refer. Your referees enjoy the exclusive advantage of using Steady fee-free for 3 months after registering, which really makes it a win-win. Check out our FAQs (Abre numa nova janela) to learn more.

Not sure whom to share your link with? Use the new sponsorship block in your newsletter to spread the word and effortlessly grow your passive income.

We're thrilled to grow together with you! If you have any questions or feedback, drop me a line—I'm always happy to chat.
