Are you using or thinking about using ConvertKit as your accessible choice for e-mail distribution?
No doubt accessibility is your first concern, and it should be.
You can join a discussion group for blind ConvertKit creators. Here fellow blind and visually impaired business owners and managers, like you, can pool their knowledge and tips to help you be more successful.
ConvertKit is a top-shelf leader in email distribution. Creators like James Clear (author of Atomic habits, Pat Flynn (of The Smart Passive Income Blog), and yours truly at Acoustic Tunesmith… and many more artists, musicians, and authors trust ConvertKit for their email marketing, newsletter distributionm, and digital product sales.
ConvertKit is also extremely accessible to a screen reader.
ConvertKit is accessible, because they have accessibility as a top concern. I can attest to that as I’ve worked with ConvertKit for a number of years to help improve screen reader accessibility.
I’ve never once reported an accessibility concern and not gotten a reply with gratitude and enthusiasm towards making needed changes. They care about us as customers, and universal design is high on their agenda.
To that end, there are always things to improve. That is one reason this group exists. You may also have a learning curve diving into a new platform, or jumping into e-mail list management for the first time.
As a screen reader and ConvertKit user myself, I don’t claim to know all the answers, but I’ve used it to create and schedule e-mails, create segments, build sequences, edit form content and settings, plus other needed tasks for Acoustic Tunesmith.
I’ve created a Groups.io discussion list for you to join.
Because, by joining this list, knowledge shared by the members with navigational tips using a screen reader, and general shortcut tips and tricks to improve the task of e-mail distribution for your business, will save you time.
Plus, it helps serve as added support reporting concerns and snags to ConvertKit’s accessibility team.
This is not an official ConvertKit group.
ConvertKit does not host this group, and may not interact with members directly. But they certainly may monitor appropriate posts for needed changes. As an independent list for creators like you, you can openly express your questions and tips regarding accessibility challenges or general navigation tips to fellow creative entrepreneurs.
Joining the group is easy.
Just send an e-mail to Blind-ConvertKit-Creatorsfirstname.lastname@example.org. You’ll need to be approved, but when you are, you can start sending messages to the group right away.
You can also visit the Blind ConvertKit Creators Groups.io page and join from there. Be sure to find your ConvertKit affiliate link, and spread the word to your blind and visually impaired colleagues.
