Medium is a powerful tool for publishing quickly and getting your name out to hundreds of thousands of users, but it's important to build your own email audience. This lets you cultivate and grow a direct relationship with your users that you can nurture and own regardless of what platform you're on.
Having a Buttondown subscription form at the bottom of your Medium stories lets you take advantage of Medium's biggest strength — its cross-promotional visibility — while allowing you to build a permanent following of your own.
Buttondown makes it easy and painless for you to get paid for your newsletters. Want to have a free tier? That's possible, too!
Everything you can do on Buttondown's interface, you can also do with our REST-ful API.
Buttondown is GDPR-compliant — and then some. I don't collect any data about you (or your subscribers), and you can turn off pixel tracking and link tracking with a click of a button.
Track subscriber retention, open rates, and more with flexible, powerful analytics.
