If for some reason you’ve actually been following this blog all week and are up to speed, then today should be easy for you.
This is the second-to-last of my suggestions on how to connect your fans to every scrap of content that you want to distribute. Head on over to FeedBlitz and set up an account. FeedBlitz allows your fans to subscribe to an email newsletter. This is automatically generated by connecting your blog’s RSS feed to them. It’s easy to set up, and is free for the first month or so. Then it’s maybe 5 bucks a month depending on how many subscribers you gather. Check their incrimental pricing list before you commit to this. It’s pretty painless.
At the end of the day, here’s what will happen. You post something new to your blog. An RSS signal is sent to FeedBlitz and they email that post out to people who have subscribed. It’s just that simple.
FeedBlitz is used by power-bloggers around the country, and they have a pretty good reputation for customer service. Be assured that they won’t try to screw you over somehow by selling your sub’s email addresses.
That’s it! You now have an email newsletter.
Tomorrow is the moment of truth. Tomorrow, we learn how to “Connect Everything.”
