Setting Up Automated Blog Updates With MailChimp
Did you know that you can set up automated blog updates with MailChimp? For busy bloggers and businesses, this is a huge time saver! It can be overwhelming when trying to get newsletters out to their mailing list and this is a great solution. MailChimp’s RSS Driven newsletters can be set to automatically pull from your blog’s RSS feed. Once you create the initial template, all you have to do is post your regular blog posts and MailChimp will pull the new ones from your RSS feed and send to your readers whenever you want.
Once you create the initial template, all you have to do is post your regular blog posts and then MailChimp will take care of pulling the new ones from your RSS feed and sending them out to your readers based on the schedule you’ve set up.
You have the option of sending out your newsletter daily, weekly or monthly. I’d suggest going with one a week, as you don’t want to annoy your readers with a bunch of emails. I have seen sites that offer a daily summary and/or weekly summary for their audience to choose from which can make sense.
