Note: This guide explains how to adjust your settings to let people sign up to your newsletter from your Twitter profile. In addition, people can subscribe to your newsletter directly from Tweets in their timeline. Learn more.
We know many of you are already using Twitter to promote your newsletter and grow your audience. By showing your newsletter on your Twitter profile, you can make it even easier for your followers to become newsletter subscribers.
People will now be able to subscribe to a Revue newsletter directly from your Twitter profile by clicking the ‘Subscribe’ button — and all you have to do is activate the feature in your Revue Account Settings!
Here’s how it looks:
First things first, you need to connect your Revue account with Twitter.
Next, in your Revue account, head to Account Settings, then Integrations. At the top on the left, under ‘Sources’, you’ll see Twitter:
Click ‘Settings’, and you’ll see a page where you can enable the feature. Optionally, you can select a sample issue to show your followers as a preview of your work:
Check the box next to ‘Show newsletter on Twitter profile’.
If you want, choose an example issue from the drop-down list for followers to check out before subscribing. If you run a paid newsletter, this will need to be an issue available to all subscribers and not a members-only issue.
Hit ‘Save changes’, and you’re all set! Head to your Twitter profile to check out the new, beautiful button — and remember to tell your Twitter followers they can subscribe directly from your profile.
Can my followers subscribe from my Twitter profile as a paying member of my newsletter?
No, followers will only be able to subscribe for the free version of your Revue newsletter from your Twitter profile. After they subscribe, they can upgrade by clicking ‘Become a member’ in the confirmation email they’ll receive.
Will I be able to use this feature if I don’t use Twitter to log in to Revue?
Yes, all you need to do is connect your Twitter account with Revue via the Integrations page. Make sure you’re logged in to Twitter on a separate tab, then click ‘Connect now’ in the Twitter card on that page. You can do this even if you’ve used your email address to sign up to Revue.
Why do I see a button that says ‘Start reading’ instead of ‘Subscribe’ on my Twitter profile?
This will happen if the email address associated with your Twitter account is already subscribed to your newsletter. People who have already subscribed on Twitter will see ‘Start reading’ instead of ‘Subscribe’.
What if I have multiple Twitter accounts and Revue is connected with the wrong one?
Even if you use a different Twitter account to log in to Revue, you can connect your newsletter to another one on the Integrations page. First, you’ll need to click ‘Disconnect’ in the Twitter card. Then, go to Twitter in a new tab, log out of the account you don’t want the Subscribe button to appear on, and log into the one you do want the Subscribe button to appear on. Come back to Revue, and click ‘Connect now’ in the Twitter card. Once you’ve configured your settings, your newsletter will appear on the most recent account you connected.
