Header for postsSubstack Video about Publishing a Private Newsletter

You will learn:

  • Where to find the settings to make your newsletter private
  • How to invite just certain people to read it
  • How paid subscribers can be allowed to invite a number of friends to receive your private newsletter



Next thing I want to teach you is how to create a private publication.

You could create a newsletter on Substack that nobody can see on the Substack website. It won’t even be seen by search engines. In fact, the only people who will be able to see this newsletter are people that you personally invite.

Here’s how you would do something like this. Go to your dashboard. settings.  Scroll down until you get to the import your email list section. And here is a little checkbox called {Invite only mode}  When turned on, visitors to Truth about Bigfoot will not be able to see any posts or content unless invited by you. This will make Truth about Bigfoot blocked from the public.

And then I have a couple of options. Once I do that, it says let paying subscribers invite, nobody, up to one friend, up to three friends, up to five friends or up to 10 friends. Each of your paying subscribers can invite a number of other people to Truth about Bigfoot You choose how many invites they should have, if any. Click here to send some invites yourself.

That’s the invite only mode and that is how you would create a private newsletter.
