Today I’m sharing Kristi Keller’s Substack story.

Kristi got 480 subscribers within 30 days using a rediculously simple method.

Her story made me realize that I could’ve had much better results in my first 4 weeks on Substack as well.

If only I knew then what I know now.

First of all, let me ask you a question.

Do you know that feeling when your screen overflows with desperate pleas of “click here” and “read my stuff”?

Well, I was guilty of doing this when I started on Substack.

I was constantly promoting my latest articles and my achievements.

But let me tell you, that strategy gets old fast.

For both you and the reader.

Kristi actually found a more natural way to connect with your audience.
