How To Export Your Subscribers From Medium

  • 2 min read

It’s super easy but comes with a catch.

If you want to export your subscribers, Medium makes it super easy for you.

  • Go to your Stats
  • Click on Audience Stats.
  • Got to Your Audience and view details.
  • Click on Export this list.

Medium will guide you to Settings where you need to confirm the export.

Within only a few seconds Medium will spit out a download link that is active for 24 hours.

Here’s the catch!

Sounds super easy… well… if you want to export this list and migrate it to Substack, you’re fine because on Substack you don’t personalize your newsletter issues.

On ConvertKit, MailChimp, or Ghost you could personalize your newsletter with…

Hi, Kristina,… Hi, Marc,…

Medium’s download link leads to a .txt file. In this file, you will ONLY get the email addresses of your subscribers.

Not their names!

So the personal salutation in the newsletter would look like this:

Hi there!…Hi!

Keep this in mind if you build an email list on Medium.

You have to enter the names manually!
