1,000 true fans

With Substack having made paid newsletters popular and a possible way for writers to make enough money to pay themselves a salary (and Kickstarter, Patreon and other services doing it in other domains), the practical application of “1,000 True Fans” is here.

After discussing the topic with a friend I re-read Kevin Kelly’s article 1,000 True Fans from 2008. It is still an excellent read, especially considering it pre-dates most of the successful services supporting creators looking to serve 1,000 true fans.
