There are a bajillion email tools out there, I know. I built Buttondown because none of them worked the way I wanted them to.
Some were super-powerful and super-complicated, designed for huge companies who were spending all day tweaking templates + workflow automations.
Others wanted to own my entire digital identity, keeping me on their platform and selling my subscribers’ data to the highest bidder.
I just wanted a small, elegant tool that let me collect subscribers and email them easily, with no fuss and at a reasonable price point.
It turns out tens of thousands of other happy writers, creators, and businesses wanted the same thing.
We built Buttondown to be the easiest way to run your newsletter.
Buttondown is GDPR-compliant — and then some. I don't collect any data about you (or your subscribers), and Buttondown is the only newsletter provider that starts with analytics turned off by default.
Buttondown uses the best of Markdown (plus things like embedded Tweets and photos) so you can write quickly and efficiently without worrying about clumsy email markup or WYSIWYGs.
Buttondown isn't a startup; it isn't a 'revolution'. It's just a bunch of people trying to make a tool that makes your life easier.
Everything you can do on Buttondown's interface, you can also do with our REST-ful API.
Buttondown makes it easy and painless for you to get paid for your newsletters. Want to have a free tier? That's possible, too!
Buttondown provides you with the analytics you need to understand your audience and grow your newsletter.
Everyone from Pulitzer Prize winners and Fortune 500s to study groups and first-time authors love Buttondown.
