Your creator business starts with your fans.

You dream of the difference you’ll make in the world. Of how you can teach what you know. Of how you can sell the products you’ve created. Of the life you’ll build for you and your family.

All of that starts with an audience you can call your fans, your followers, your community.

Every newsletter, blog post, and product launch are all tailored to that audience. And while finding that audience doesn’t happen overnight, you wouldn’t have it any other way.

We want to celebrate you and your hard work by helping you grow your audience and kickstart those dreams.

Take the challenge

The Grow Your Audience Challenge

September 1-30, 2021

At ConvertKit, our mission is to help creators like you earn a living online. One of the many tools we believe can help you get started is a landing page. They’re a fast, simple, and beautiful way to promote your business.

Throughout the month, we’ll give you the tools you need to create a new landing page and grow your audience, a community to help keep you accountable, pre-recorded workshops to teach you list building tips, and live Q&As to answer all your questions.

On top of that, with every milestone you hit, you’ll unlock a new cash bonus to celebrate your progress. Yep! You read that right. Anyone participating in this challenge can earn bonuses for growing their audience.

In less than 10 minutes, you can have your next big idea live and ready to share with the world. Think it’s too good to be true? Check out some of our winners from the previous challenge:

The ConvertKit Challenge helped me stop overthinking and start creating. ConvertKit made it easy to get everything up and running, and the challenge provided extra motivation and support. I was excited to be one of the winners, but even more excited that people could finally download my worksheet!

Earn up to $2,000 in ConvertKit bonuses

We love our creator community and we're excited to reward the progress each of you make along the way.

Instead of one grand prize winner, we want to celebrate each creator as they hit a milestone in growing their audience. At the end of the challenge, if you’ve added at least 10 new subscribers to your list with your new landing page, we’re going to send you a cash bonus. That means on top of the progress you’re already making with building your audience, you get an extra “Congratulations!” reward from us.

How does the bonus work?

  • When the challenge ends, we’ll look at the data to see how many new subscribers you’ve added with your new landing page you created in the Challenge between 12:00AM PDT September 1st and 11:59PM PDT September 30th, 2021.
  • If your landing page reached one of the milestones listed below during that period, you get paid!

I’m currently on a ConvertKit trial. Can my time be extended so I can join the challenge?

You can participate in the challenge on any of our plans, including our free plan! If your trial expires and you aren’t ready to upgrade, you can still continue with the challenge.

I’m not a ConvertKit customer. How can I join the challenge?

You can sign up with a ConvertKit Free account. Fill out the form on this page and you’ll be directed to our main challenge page to create your new landing page and get started.

I am a ConvertKit customer. Can I still join the challenge?

Yes, please! Just make sure to use the same email address you used to create your ConvertKit account to join this challenge. That helps us with some behind-the-scenes housekeeping.

How many landing pages can I create?

You can create as many landing pages as you want. BUT the one that helps you gain the most subscribers will be the only one that qualifies in the challenge.

If I make multiple landing pages, can all my subscribers be added up?

No, we will only count the subscribers from the new landing page you’ve created with the highest new subscribers you’ve added during the challenge between 12:00AM PDT September 1, 2021 and 11:59PM PDT September 30, 2021.

Can I qualify for multiple tiers?

Yes! Each milestone you hit is an extra cash bonus unlocked that you add to your bonus total.

Can I use one of my existing landing pages for this challenge?

No, we’ve got some new landing page designs that we’re excited for you to try out, and we want everyone to start on the same page with a fresh new landing page. So as long as you’ve created your landing page after you signed up for this challenge, we’ll count subscribers gained on or after September 1, 2021 toward your bonus calculation.

Can I join mid-challenge?

We’ll keep the registration open until the end of the first week of the challenge on September 7, 2021 at 11:59PM PDT. We want to make sure you have enough time in the challenge to succeed. If you can’t commit to this challenge, don’t worry—we will host another one soon! But if you’re looking to kickstart your list build, there’s no better time than now to do it!

When can I access my ConvertKit account?

As soon as you sign up! Jump on in and start playing around with our landing page templates. But remember, only subscribers added to your highest generating new landing page between 12:00AM PDT September 1, 2021 and 11:59PM PDT September 30, 2021 will count towards your milestone bonuses.

What if I’ve never built a landing page or even tried email marketing?

Don’t worry! We’d never throw you into the deep end without a floatie.

The challenge provides you with pre-recorded workshops on the step-by-step instructions you’ll need along the way. We’ll also provide some optional live Q&As, extracurricular reading from our blog, Tradecraft, and our own Knowledge Base.

And if you’re really stuck on something, our amazing Customer Success team is just an email away.
