Introduction to Following

Following A Simplebooklet


Following allows your reader to opt-in and receive updates about changes you make in your Simplebooklet. You'll be able to send our a personal message to all of your followers whenever you make an update or change to your Simplebooklet.

In addition, your Simplebooklet will be automatically added to the reader's personal following page, which is a collection of all Simplebooklets they follow.

When a reader chooses to follow your Simplebooklet, they are also choosing to follow your account. This means when you create a new Simplebooklet, you can automatically add existing followers to it. This new Simplebooklet will automatically appear in your reader's personal following page.

As the owner of the Simplebooklet, you can also remove anyone from following your Simplebooklet.

As an account owner, you can follow other Simplebooklets, including your own. You can access any Simplebooklets you follow from the left hand menu on your dashboard under following.

All Plans support following.

PRO and BUSINESS plans can manage followers.


Following is a great way to keep your readers up to date with a Simplebooklet you update frequently. Similar to following someone on instagram or tiktok, you'll be able to share new content with them as you publish, and keep them up to date when you make changes on your existing Simplebooklets.

It's also a terrific way for your reader to keep all the Simplebooklet's you create all in one, custom, personal webpage. So referring back to your latest newsletter, report, or update is all from a simple to remember URL.


Here's a quick overview of how following works for your reader and for you the owner of the Simplebooklet.
