We’ll notifiy you each week when your newsletter is ready, you have full control over what appears.

How it works
Build audience

Build your audience with our Slackbot

Ask your members to subscribe to your newsletter from any channel at anytime with Lowdownbot.

You can also send it via Direct Message. Lowdownbot can even ask all your new sign ups automatically - a great way to keep them coming back.

Here’s a few ways you can use Lowdown:

1

An exclusive benefit

Do you have a pro-level in your community? You can use Lowdown as a special perk for just these members.

2

A channel specific update

Pick a valuable channel for example #jobs and deliver new job posts to your members inboxes each week automatically.

3

A personal content stream

Only want to share your own content? No problem! Share your posts and links in your own private channel and have Lowdown deliver it to your subscribers.

How it works
Security

Concerned about data protection? Here’s what we do to ensure your data is safe.

What data do you store?

We only keep a record of your account so we know who to send newsletters to. Your messages are only pulled for temporary processing and only those that are delivered in your newsletters are stored securely within Lowdown - so you can view your past content and see what your members engaged with the most.

Do you retain any personal information?

For your members we only keep a record of what is needed to send each newsletter. That means we store basic user details - name, avatar and email.

How do you protect my data?

All data is encrypted via SSL/TLS when transmitted from our servers to your browser. Our software infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches. Our products run on a dedicated network which is locked down with firewalls.

Do any humans read our content?

No. The only time your content may be viewed is when you request support. We’ll ask your permission before doing so and only authorised Lowdown staff will be permitted.

What happens is someone who isn't a member of my Slack gets sent my newsletter?

It is of course possible your email newsletter could be forwarded to someone outside your Slack. We anonymize all references to your users names by default and no one who isn’t a member will be able to access your Slack from the newsletter without being a member.

Do you sell my data in anyway?

No we will never sell your data. We take your privacy and data security extremely seriously and will never give your personal details or those of your members to anyone.
