Substack Statistics user count and Facts

Substack is an online platform that allows writers and publishers to create and distribute subscription-based newsletters. It was founded in 2017 and has quickly gained popularity among independent writers and journalists who want to monetize their content and build a loyal following.

On Substack, writers can create their own newsletter and set a subscription price for their content. Subscribers receive regular updates via email, and writers can earn revenue from subscription fees or optional tips from readers. Substack also provides tools and analytics to help writers grow their audience, manage their subscriptions, and monetize their content effectively.

Substack has been praised for its user-friendly interface, simple payment system, and focus on quality content. It has become popular among writers and journalists who want to control their content and monetize their work without relying on traditional media outlets. The platform has also attracted controversy over issues such as moderation of content and the potential for misinformation or extremist views to spread through the platform.

Substack Facts

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Substack statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
