How the Generalist Got Over 40k Subscribers in Year 1
Mario Gabriele’s The Generalist Newsletter just hit 60k subscribers. This article shares his growth in the first 12 months.
“The Generalist has made money in three ways: subscriptions, sponsorships, and NFT sales. Before fees, that totals roughly $308,000.”
► Long-form, original content can be a growth engine for a newsletter. (Curated content is not.) Other examples are Packy McCormick and Lenny Rachitsky.
► Social media is a slot machine. “Posting on Twitter and LinkedIn has proven a solid way to attract new subscribers, but it’s hard to know what will take off.”
