What is Substack?
At its core, it is essentially an email marketing service. It requires putting in the work to cultivate an engaged subscriber base. The beauty of Substack is that our reach is no longer contingent on how relevant our content is to the platform's users. I might be mistaken, but many Substack writers possess strong personalities that naturally draw people in. In other words, being unapologetically yourself in your writing could potentially attract more subscribers than focusing solely on a narrow niche.
It’s incredibly liberating not having to worry about using all the "right" keywords or Hashtags. The focus is solely on what would be most useful for the therapists who are reading the posts and looking to be part of a community of therapists in private practice looking to learn more about the business side of things or who have become business nerds since setting up like us!
