Frequently Asked Questions

It's really free, forever?

Yes! The base plan is always free. It's a great option for your basic blogging and newsletter needs. We recommend moving to a paid plan if you're a writer looking to earn.

I'm an individual interested in writing and monetizing. How do I start?

We recommend starting with a free plan. Once your email list is large enough (~500 subscribers) from some consistent writing and sharing on social media, decide whether you want to monetize through paid memberships or sponsorships. You can upgrade to the Side Hustle plan at that point. If you start to grow rapidly, talk to us about our Business plan. We'll help you build out a media business and always make sure it's the most affordable option on the market for its value.

If you don't have an audience yet, but want to earn from writing, we can also match you with businesses for freelance writing opportunities. Just fill out this form.

How does Letterdrop compare to Substack, Revue, etc?

Glad you asked! Lucky for you, a lot of people are interested in helping independent writers right now. Our goal is to make it as easy for you to start and scale a media business as it is to sell a physical product on Shopify.


To help you decide on who you should go with, check out our alternative pages here for Substack, Revue and Mailchimp.

I'm an individual looking to do some freelance writing. Can you help me find business?

Letterdrop can provide you with basic SEO training and add you to our talent network so that businesses can discover and work with you. They know that you have the Letterdrop stamp of approval and you get more clients. We make it seamless to work with them through our software. If you're interested, fill out this form.
