Outpost is publicly launching its self-serve service to let Ghost newsletter publishers of all sizes have a great autoresponder, privacy-respecting analytics, and ways for users to give tips, at a price that more than pays for itself.

So it's time!

We've finished a lot of plumbing and built what we think is an easy way to sign up for Outpost's Space Station level of service. This includes the Best Damn Autoresponder for Ghost, Plausible Analytics, Tip Buttons, and analytics reports.

These features aren't just nice - they make sites more money than they cost. We're excited to be launching a self-serve system that we think will be of help to Ghost sites of all sizes, after more than a year of working with some of the biggest sites using Ghost to publish.

Our final tweaks before launching:

  • ✨ Changed behavior at sign-on so that the Outpost Autoresponder triggers work off users' Ghost sign-up date. So if an existing user signed up a week ago, they would not get an email sent 3 days after a new user signs up. They would get the one sent to users 10 days after sign up.
  • ✨ Added a new sign-on feature to help sites easily add Plausible Analytics and Tip Buttons via a draft post in Ghost
