Much needed feature and marketing technique too. I've created one for my blog readers.

Expecting custom newsletter option. I mean, creating custom message from the html editor.

Hi Sarugu,

I'm glad to hear you jumped on board with the new tool so quickly. Please let me know when you have added the subscribe widget to your site and start generating subscribers for the newsletter.

Keep us posted with your success and comments.

I created one, however the widget for signups is too wide, and when I use the txt link one, nothing happens on my site...

Hi Mcangeli,

We created a widget for you to use that fits your sidebar. I'll email the code over to you. Please let me know if you do not receive it.

but I think for us, we would need to be able to include offers by key words. In any event we have a newsletter list of over 9k people, so what do you have available for that? (I've been including offers manually).

Echo this. Really important to complete the automated process, AND ensure relevant offers are made available so as not to annoy subscribers.

Like Work911, I already have a newsletter subscriber list. Can it be imported into your tool or would I have to start over?

Tom,

Thanks for your question; you can upload your current list into our RSS to Email tool so you don't have to start from scratch. I will contact you directly to get things setup.

Hi Karen,

The newsletter is unable to recognize source feeds from Feedburner. Please see that this is fixed.

Thanks you

Hi Kaushik,

We have many publishers leveraging feedburner feeds for their newsletters so there must be something else at work.

I'll have the team take a look and we'll be in touch via email.

Hi Work911,

Yes, you most certainly can change the RSS feed used on your newsletter at any time.

Yes, you can easily edit the offers by clicking the 'Edit' link within the RSS to Email Control Panel page.

Yes, you can easily move your names over to the new list. We can walk you through the process behind the scenes...it's pretty straightforward and simple.

Let us know if you have any other questions or comments that you'd like to review.

Thanks,

David Fortino

Thanks David. One more question. Am I correct that the frequency options are once a month or once a week? I'd actually like to do it twice a week.

I think I can actually forward the email to my existing mailing list, actually, so as not to have to move it over here. It saves hassle, if it works, and it allows me to keep the two mailing lists separate, and make use of the web views I get from the original archived newsletters.

You can set the newsletters to go out on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. If you'd like to do it twice a week, simply select the 'Weekly' option and then select the days which you want the newsletters to go out.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Thanks. Sent out the first test today, and it's looking good.

Another questions. I need to know a bit more so I can ensure that the content in the newsletter isn't repeated. Best way to ask is with an example.

I have a feed with 100 items. It changes, of course, but a number of items are in the rss feed over a number of weeks. My newsletter shows 5 of the items.

Does your system "know" what it's already included? Or does it simply take the first five items in the feed, then the next time it takes the first five items, even if they are still the same?

Don't know if I'm being clear here, but just trying to avoid duplication from week to week.

I've passed along your comments to Engineering for review. We'll see what we can do to optimize the current messaging.

Thanks,

I also need to be able to change the width of the subscription box, hopefully to 200px wide. I'm trying to mod the code, but apart from the table width, it's not immediately clear what else needs to be changed.

David's picture

We can easily customize that behind the scenes. Dan will be in touch later today with a modified version.

He'll also explain another option we make available that specifically is focused on capturing your migrant search engine referral traffic.
