Newsletter directories to get more subscribers

Top Newsletter Directories to increase your subscribers

I wanted to genuinely create a platform where I can list newsletters and also collect stories from Newsletter creators about their experiences through interviews.

I was also fascinated by Newsletters and felt it will be a great initiative as a part of ChandraSaaS to interact with founders and creators of Newsletters.

My inspiration to make this section happened only after I discovered a few amazing Newsletter directories. So, here are some of the best newsletter directory to consider submitting your Newsletter.

Top Newsletter Directory

1.Newsletter Spotlight

Ours is a simple platform to discover good Newsletters and also interviews from Newsletter creators and writers. I also have a provide a “Award Certification” as way of recolonizing the newsletter creator and their team’s effort. Write to me to feature your Newsletter.

Why I created Newsletter Growth?

My goal is to help newsletter creators get more subscribers and also help writers, founders and designers to get inspiration while structuring and designing their newsletters. Increasing subscriber count is one of the biggest challenges of newsletter makers but I personally feel you should focus more on satisfying existing audience and ensuring they continue to support your writings by subscribing forever.

I am also planning to do video interviews of Newsletter creators.

2. is one of my favorite newsletter directory which helps you to explore over 500 newsletters to find ones based on the topics you love. They also have a thriving Newsletter Creators’ Club that is active. A community of over 1,500 newsletter aficionados who share thoughts, advice, and ideas on everything connected to newsletters, including technical, growth and monetization issues.


InboxStash is a directory of newsletters, a platform for email lovers and also a Community of newsletter creators that are learning, building, and growing newsletters in their own niche industries.


Mereku is a well built newsletter discovery platform. I like the UX design of Mereku. Mereku (pronounced “may-ray-ku”) is a social discovery network for informative, distinctive, and diversified newsletter writing.


One of the most beautiful newsletter inspiration and discovery website. has a curated collection of Discovery emails for reference and inspiration. Each review offers a comprehensive preview of the email design as well as other significant features. The founder also makes amazing videos on YouTube doing reviews of newsletter design.

6.Discover by Revue

Revue has developed a newsletter directory to help you find your favorite editorial newsletters. Each editorial newsletter contains significant editorial content directly in the email; there are no blog notifications or auto-generated lists of links. This is one of the reason I love discover by Revue. Being a newsletter company acquired by Twitter, they maintain their standards and ethics.

They also avoided any email marketing campaigns or direct advertisements; while the authors of the editorial newsletter may have a commercial interest, the goal of the newsletters chosen does not urge you to buy.

7. Newsletter Junkie

Newsletter Junkie offers a diverse selection of newsletter categories from which to choose based on your own interests. Art to business, culinary to design, education to lifestyle, and many more topics are covered. They’re also interested in hearing from you about how they can make it easier for loyal subscribers to find and engage with newsletters.

8. Inbox Reads lists some of the best newsletters to subscribe in various topics. The topics are clearly
listed on top of their homepage. The newsletter topics include tech, marketing, travel, food, sports,
Startups, Dev, Science, Remote work, Design, Crypto, Politics, Health, Music, Gaming, News, Jobs, Investing
and Productivity.
