How Highbrow works

Highbrow is an email subscription service that brings bite-sized courses straight to your inbox every morning. All courses are 10 days long (so you don’t get bored) and are broken down into 5-minute lessons to make sure you can read them with your morning coffee.

All of our courses are in text format, and the materials are available right in the email. We believe that’s the simplest, easiest way to make learning an everyday habit.

Highbrow is free. Click here to sign up (all you need is an email address). After you’ve had a chance to fall in love with our free courses, get unlimited access to our Premium content for $7/mo or annually at just $48 for per year.

Unfortunately, Highbrow is a one-course-at-a-time deal. We want you to form a productive daily habit, but you shouldn’t tire your brain out. Thus, you can only subscribe to one course at a time.

Your course will start the following morning after you sign up for it. If it's Friday or a weekend, you'll get your first lesson on Monday. All lessons are delivered at 4AM PST / 7AM EST / 12AM GMT.

Highbrow will never sell, rent, or share your email address with any third parties. Your email address is currently only shared with our email provider. Your information is shared exclusively for the purpose of delivering our emails, meaning the provider is responsible for getting our email courses to you.

You can also check out our Privacy Policy page.

Sign up for a new course

To start a new course, just choose one of our courses and click the “Start this course now” link on its page. If it’s your first Highbrow course, click the “Sign up for Highbrow” button instead.

Your course will begin the following morning. If it's Friday or a weekend, you'll get your first lesson on Monday.

Please note that you can subscribe to only one course at a time.

This feature is already a part of our roadmap. But, unfortunately, we don’t have the opportunity to bring it to life right now. But we plan on improving our service’s functionality soon.

Email delivery

First of all, to ensure delivery, please add go@gohighbrow.com to your address book.

Then check your spam folder to make sure that emails didn't get caught in that email black hole. Look for emails from go@gohighbrow.com. If you find them in your spam folder, marking them as “not spam” should solve the problem.

If they are not in your spam folder, chances are you're using Gmail and our emails are going into your Promotions tab. If you find emails from Highbrow in your Promotions tab, start by dragging them into your Primary tab.

All of our courses are sent automatically, so 99% of the time, you’ll receive all the episodes without a problem. This time, you need to figure out where this episode got lost.
