In today's digital age, platforms like Notion have revolutionized the way we organize and collaborate on projects. But did you know you can also monetize your Notion workspace?

In this tutorial, we'll walk you through an easy, free method for turning your Notion workspace into a valuable resource that people are willing to pay for. In a nutshell, by leveraging tools like and Kahana, you can create monetized hubs where people can pay to access your Notion workspaces.

The image below shows one example of the "finished product," a monetized hub that contains a Notion workspace (or workspaces). This is an asset you'll create for yourself that allows people can pay you to access your Notion content.

The best part about this method is that it protects the actual URL of your Notion workspace. When customers purchase access, they won't be able to copy the link to your Notion workspace and redistribute it - only customers that have already paid and are logged in through Kahana will be able to actually see and access your Notion workspaces.

Here are the benefits of this approach:

  1. Free - you don't have to pay anything to start making money with this method.
  2. Secure - people will not be able to steal the link to your Notion workspace and redistribute it to people who want to bypass payment.
  3. Automatic updates - you don't need to republish your Notion workspace whenever you make updates. It will update automatically within the hub.
We don't get any sort of commission or referral bonus from Super - we just think it's a great option that works well with Kahana and can be used for free. It just gets the job done.

Let's dive in!
