Hello there! Welcome to LetterStack, a unique, curated collection of resources for newsletter publishers. My name is Michael Frew and it's nice to meet you.
My goal here is to keep the LetterStack resources fresh, responsive and relevant. (If you're curious, I also run my own newsletter focused on the narrow niche of online business acquirers and operators.)
Paul Metcalfe originally started LetterStack after saving countless links to articles, communities and directories. He wanted to share these great resources with other artists, creatives, and writers all over the world.
So he built LetterStack to compile all the newsletter building resources he found. Following the launch of the site, Paul got LetterStack to #1 on Product Hunt.
Like most successful entrepreneurs, Paul was working on multiple promising projects and decided to move on from LetterStack. He trusted Kyle Steinmeyer with the site, and Kyle continued to build out this unique online resource for creators. It certainly helped that Kyle publishes one of the best newsletter resources on the market today.
In my quest to figure out how to build, grow and monetize my own newsletters, I found Letterstack in late 2020. I signed up, profited from their resources, and then I learned that LetterStack was for sale on MicroAcquire. It was as if the stars had aligned!
As Kyle's other obligations increased, he wanted to allow someone new to assume the reins and take over. That's where I come in...and my goal is to continue to add valuable resources and support newsletter creators all over the world ♥️
In 2020, there was a noticeable pivot towards newsletters in response to the pandemic and desire to connect more directly with people sharing the same interests. It seemed like everyone realized how simple, profitable, and fun it can be to share your ideas using the email newsletter business model.
But, although conceptually simple, running a newsletter is not easy. There are technical challenges, marketing issues, and a lot of background logistics to figure out.
Hopefully, LetterStack can continue to educate our community and grow with the success of the newsletter model.
I'm always open to ideas, feedback, and your thoughts on the site and what I could do make it better and more valuable to the community. If you ever want to drop me a note, you can reach me at email@example.com. Trust me, I read every email I receive.
