Intelligent and Dynamic Calls to Action in Posts: Outpost

Outpost, a set of power tools for Ghost sites, just released a new version of its in-post CTAs. These allow you to show different messages and actions to different levels of readers automatically (unknown, free, monthly, annual, complimentary).

With the latest version you have control over the text and can choose the action per level, and those changes are dynamic - so that the CTAs in your older posts update as well.

Our announcement post on the Intelligent CTAs.

Please offer monthly, Quarterly or a free trial for you higher tiers so we can test these features without the fear of losing alot if it doesn’t work how we would like.

Also, is everything still sent through mailgun or no? If its sent through mailgun why do you charge more based on number of members. I have 11K members so its scary thoughts.


We don’t offer a free trial on our higher tiers currently because it’s quite a bit of manual work to set up the site on those tiers. We have to edit your theme to make that happen, which requires you to download and upload your theme, then we modify it for you.

We think there are ways to streamline that but it’s going to take a little time to do that.

The biggest bang comes from the auto responder and the tip jar, which are fully featured on the free trial of Space Station plan. And the price difference between the two isn’t super high.

I appreciate the feedback and we would really love to give people a free trial of the most full featured plans.

As for mailgun, yes we use mailgun but not your account or Ghost Pro’s.

We’re going to be adjusting our prices downward very soon, so I would say test out Space Station for 3 weeks, and then we can figure out a price that works for you given the performance.



I just found your free trial there for the lower tiers and checking it out now. Question, is it dependent on labels for the auto responder? Because I see it created free vs paid labels for existing members but it doesn’t appear to create them for new members after the api is set up with outposts. I like what I see so far.

Will have many more questions as I tinker with it. But if it’s dependent on creating labels I may need help already as it doesn’t appear to create Free or Paid labels for new members, free or paid but did label existing members that way.
