Use Networking Effects to Grow Your Newsletter in 2024 (without Lifting a Finger)

  • 3 min read

If you’ve been dying to start your email list in 2024 but don’t know how to get subscribers — this is for you.

I’ve been using ConvertKit as a marketing manager for different brands and services since 2014.

In 2021 I started using it for my brand too.

Then in 2023, I recommended it to my husband Patrick God.

He immediately fell in love with it due to its new Creator Network which helped him to grow his audience by about 2,700 subs within two months by collaborating with other creators in his field.

ConvertKit’s new recommendation engine is mimicking Substack’s recommendation feature from spring 2022

When someone signs up for your newsletter, you recommend other newsletters that could be valuable too.

In return, those other creators promote your newsletter.

See? Easy!

With many different ways to grow and monetize an email newsletter, the strategy of newsletter recommendations is one of the best ways to do this.

Platforms like Substack, ConvertKit, and Beehiiv make it easier than ever to grow an online business and make money from a newsletter.

ConvertKit’s new Creator Network is especially powerful since it can help you build a profitable online business.

Here’s what it looks like after someone has subscribed to Patrick’s newsletter:

Patrick’s friends Julio and Milan both serve an audience that’s similar to his, yet they all have different styles, perspectives, and offers.

Patrick knows their content is valuable to someone interested in his newsletter, so it’s a no-brainer to promote each other’s work.

ConvertKit is also making it increasingly easy to connect with like-minded creators and experts in the Creator Network.

Based on a quick survey it shows you like-minded peers with whom you can grow your businesses together…

…and get in front of new audiences without lifting a finger — it’s cool!

Audience overlap is the key

Let’s say you’re a fiction writer looking to collaborate with other fiction writers or authors, in the Creator Network, you’ll find your tribe.

If you’re writing about health & fitness or are a coach, find other coaches and fitness experts in the network.
