Option: Direct subscribers to third parties

Options include:

  • Instapaper + IFTTT (supports iOS, Kindle and Android)
  • Readability (supports iOS, Kindle and Android, but all articles must be sent manually, no automatic delivery)
  • Kindlefeeder (supports Kindle only)


  • Little to no time investment; subscribers manage themselves, and no need to add extra conversion steps to publishing workflow


  • Complete loss of "branded experience"; can feel hacky and/or require extra work on the part of the subscriber
  • Impossible to monetize
  • Small third-party services often have suboptimal reliability and/or unsustainable business models
