Hey folks! Ghost Expert here, doing a little market research. I’m curious to know what a service that generated digest newsletters for your Ghost content would be worth as a monthly subscription.
You’d configure (easy web form) what frequency your wanted for your newsletter, whether to include a default heading section or a different one that you wrote custom for each (day/week/month), what tags to include, and whether to send full post bodies or just the excerpt. My function would take that information and check your site automatically each day/week/month, pull the data for the new posts you’d made, create your digest newsletter, and schedule it for Ghost to send to your subscribers.
Is that something that folks would find useful as a paid add-on? If so, what’s it worth to you? (If you’re willing, maybe also share how many subscribers you have currently, for reference.)
No, I haven’t written it yet. I’m looking to see if there’s enough interest (and ability to pay) to justify writing it. :)
Update: I offered for a client last week to build something that lets users pick specific tags to get in a combined newsletter. That’s also a possibility, but it’d mean that each user effectively gets their own personalized email, so would require a separate integration with mailgun or similar, rather than just scheduling emails with Ghost…
Yes, it would work on Ghost Pro.
p.s. to anyone who missed it: There’s a built-in way to include your three latest posts in a newsletter: Include latest posts in newsletters . This proposed offering would go significantly beyond that in terms of automation and customizability. :)
