We can also display your sent newsletters in a beautiful newsletter website, where people can subscribe to your future editions, just like with Substack. Of course, you can customize that page however you want. Here’s an example.

In addition to sending out newsletters, Mailcoach can also send out drip campaigns and transactional emails. You can discover all of our features on our marketing website and our docs.
