You spend a fair amount of time writing your blog posts. But that’s only half the work you need to do. The rest of your time is or should be spent promoting your posts so that they rank higher in the search engines. How would you like to use automated promotional email marketing to send new post notifications to your subscribers and have them actually read that email?
Broadcasting awesome email announcements when you publish a new post on your blog is a fantastic way to make your list grow and drive more traffic to your blog.
Today’s webinar is all about that. Here’s what’s covered in the training:
- Overview of the previous webinar: 1st Steps To List Building
- How blog broadcasting (visually) works.
- Sending Automatically vs Manually.
- Finding the RSS Feed URL on your blog.
- Tracking your results – how many people are opening your emails and how many are reading them.
- Let’s Get Started with a LIVE example!
- Q&A Session
The webinar is provided by Wealthy Affiliate and you have to be a member to watch the webinar. However, you can sign up as a free member so there’s no financial commitment to watch this. You can remain a free member as long as you want.
The webinar also looks at how you can customize your blog broadcasts to make them more friendly in tone and how you can format the content in the broadcast email so they have more punch.
If you have more than one list in the same niche, you can set up multiple blog broadcasts so that when you publish a post, it gets broadcast to the subscribers on your different lists.
Watch the Sending Your Blog Posts Webinar Here:
While the webinar focuses on using your blog’s RSS feed to send out blog posts to your list(s), you can also add your RSS feed to additional RSS syndication sites.
This only has to be done once per site you sign up with (for free). Once that’s done, those sites will pull your blog post information from your RSS feed automatically.
Here are some RSS syndication sites to look at:
- RSS Blog Directories – lists several RSS sites where you can submit your RSS feed URL
- The RSS Network
- Complete RSS (not sure if this one is still working)
Look for the Submit Feed or Suggest Feed links on these sites to submit your own site’s feed web address.
