Note: Email lists are only available to upgraded blogs

The email list tool allows blogs just starting out or with a small audience to create an email newsletter list. However, Bear does not send emails when you post on your blog. You will need to send emails to your subscribers manually (outlined below).

Sending emails

For more than 150 subscribers

If you have a larger number of subscribers and want to improve your newsletter, consider using email services like EmailOctopus or Buttondown. You can import your existing email list from Bear.

It is recommended that if you're using an external email service that you add the service's subscribe form embed to the content or footer of your blog as opposed to the Bear subscriber signup embed.
