You’ve probably seen them on Medium. These “native” sign up forms ending a lot of articles you can read on the blogging platform.
I said “native” as they are from a third-party but feel like completely integrated.
Upscribe, is the app behind them. Let’s review it in details in this post.
Upscribe is a tool for building newsletter signup forms and lead generation forms that embed right into your Medium story.
That’s pretty much all it does and it does it really well.
So well that it makes some good money. In October 2018, Upscribe had over 10,000 registered users and 250 paying users.
Yes, this is only a side project with Josh Anderton as the proud founder of Upscribe.
How does it work?
- Go to Upscri.be
- Create your form
- Paste the link in your Medium post and press enter to start collecting subscribers.
Watch the video below to see the link transform into a beautiful form.
You can create forms directly from the dashboard. Choose the headline, color design, CTA text and additional fields if you have more than a free plan.
From there you can integrate the form with your favorite ESP (mine is Drip).
See your stats, all your subscribers and even send them an email directly from Upscribe, that’s a brand new feature.
If you are looking for a little bit more than just sending the subscribers to your ESP, that’s no problem.
Thanks to Upscribe integrations you can send them to your CRM, a Google sheet and more.
