Here’s Why I Love Beehiiv

-

I love Beehiiv.

There, I said it.

I was previously a Convertkit user (they’re also a great company, and the owner is a good dude).

But…

They made me mad at how they handled their annual billing.

I won’t go into it in detail here, but I share my story in this video.

At the time, I was sampling Beehiiv to test it out.

Right after my nightmare Convertkit story, I moved my entire business over to Beehiiv.

And I haven’t looked back since.

Here are the reasons I love Beehiiv (my referral link) and why I fully switched from Convertkit.

Note: I’ll add to this list over time as Beehiiv keeps shipping updates.

They Ship Updates.

And I mean, they shipppp updates.

I feel like I’m getting a weekly email from Tyler Denk and the team showcasing the newest updates. 

For example, just this month, I recall these updates:

  • An overhaul of the navigation
  • Lifetime premium memberships
  • Affiliate program for all users
  • Ability to embed audio

There was probably more, but that’s what hit my mind while typing.

They’re Super Helpful.

Not only are their tutorials and education solid, but I’ve also been surprised at how much they bend over backwards to solve any of my issues via ticketing. 

I’ve been impressed.

They Have Ways to Make $$$ Built-in the Platform.

They’re everywhere, and they’re constantly improving.

Premium Subscription Options

We’ve made over $600 from this, and we’re only scratching the surface. 

We’re planning to dig in more here soon for further growth.

Ad Network

As of writing, we’ve made $258 (this is from sponsors I didn’t have to go out and sell).

Boosts

You can get paid to promote other newsletters on the Beehiiv network. 

As of writing, we’ve made $23.

What’s cool is that you can also pay others to promote your newsletter.

So you can take cash and reinvest it quickly.

It’s Fast

I know, this may not seem like a huge deal, but it’s noticeable.

It’s really fast.

If I attempted to create another newsletter using a tool like Mailchimp, I think I would throw my laptop out the window.

They Allowed Their Customers To Invest

Beehiiv set aside $1M of their latest investment round for users.

They maxed this out in a few hours.

If that doesn’t speak volumes about the product, I don’t know what does.

Heck, I want to put in $100 just to say I own a piece of the service I use (Tyler, get me in dude – if nothing else, so I can talk about it over time in my content!)

It Can Serve as Your Website

I already have websites I create posts on, but I dig that my newsletter archives can serve as great secondary hubs and gain SEO traffic on their own.

My examples are here and here. 

Pricing is Competitive.

I’ve noticed that some competitors have adjusted their pricing due to how competitive Beehiiv is.

And since I have more than one publication, it’s been a no-brainer.

They Sent Me Swag

Yep, this holds merit with me.

A company that’s willing to spend some real cash and send you something in the mail makes you feel special.

Thanks for the gift!

I’m sure there will be more reasons as the months go on.  

I’ll continue sharing them in this post…

Good luck.

See you in the Hiiv!
