Hi Roland.

Turning on paid is a great start. I wishing expect it to yield immediate results and you may have to iterate a little to find the value proposition.

I wrote a post recently in the paid section of my newsletter on going paid. I’ve set you up with a comp subscription if you want to take a read.

I also like your idea of having a YouTube channel. Is your plan to monetise on YouTube? Or use it as a funnel for Substack?

Hi Martin

YouTube has recently reached the first stage of monetisation and that has been set up. I now need to reach 1000 subscribers to get the advertising revenue.

One other thing you could do is look for other ways to monetise.

Subscriptions are just one way.

You could also look at advertising or sponsorship for you Substack or sponsorship for a particular post.

Or maybe one of the places you visit could shout you a freeze entry on condition that you write about the place?
