Build your audience, no matter where you're published.

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.
