Welcome!

Buttondown is the easiest way to start and grow your newsletter.

Okay, that's a lofty and nice-sounding mission, but what does it mean in practice?

In a nutshell, Buttondown lets you do a handful of things really well:

  • Build your list of subscribers (via embeds, hosted pages, API integrations, and more) and imbue them with interesting data
  • Host your archives without the hassle of setting up a separate blog or website
  • Send out clean, minimal emails with extremely high engagement rates

Where do I get started?

If you're a complete novice to the whole newsletter game, I'd recommend kicking things off by reading the entire Getting started section, starting with Quickstart. By the end of that section, you'll be well-equipped to grow your newsletter.

If you're coming from a different newsletter provider or ESP and are ready to rock, check out the guide to importing your data: this will point you in the right direction to set up shop.

If you're a programmer interested in messing around with the API, check out the API reference's introduction.
