In this lesson, you will learn:

  • How to export ALL your stuff if you want to back it up or move everything to another platform.




One of the beautiful things about a platform like Substack is that you are not tied down to this platform. You can leave here at any time and take all your stuff with you, your posts, your email lists, your subscriber lists, your podcasts, everything you can take with you.

Let me show you how to do it. Go to your Dashboard and then to Settings. Then scroll down until you reach Export your Data. This is gonna allow you to export your posts, email list, and related emails.

Statistics will send you an email when your data export is ready to be downloaded. And it happens pretty quick. You just create a new export. And there it is.

As you can see, it only took a few seconds. Now clearly, this is a brand new account. So there’s not a lot of data. If you have a lot more data, obviously it might take a few more seconds to do it than what it took me. But the fact of the matter is, it happens really really quickly.

That’s how you do it. And that is amazing because you can take that data and you can go anywhere and set up shop again; you’re not tied down to Substack. That’s it for this video. Let’s move on to the next one.
