Set Your Moosend In Motion: Publishers

Send automatic emails to your subscribers every time you publish something new. Connect your RSS feed with Moosend and grow traffic to your website or blog with a super easy process you will learn in this video.

Hello! Welcome to another Moosend tutorial! 

As a publisher or blogger, you want to keep your subscribers engaged and informed while making your life easier. 

This is where RSS email campaigns come into play.  

When you set an RSS campaign we take your new content, automatically insert it into an email and send it to your subscribers on a scheduled email that you control. 

Sounds cool? 

Let’s see how you can create your RSS email campaign with just a few clicks! 

Click on the New Campaign button.

Locate the RSS campaign and click on the “Create” button.

Next, you’ll need to define the campaign settings. 

Start by setting up the available fields. 

Campaign name, Subject, Preview text is optional, Sender, Reply to, RSS Feed Url, the link that allows us to receive regular updates from your website or blog, and Send Confirmation to.

If you would like to track your campaign at Google analytics, enable the option with a click. 

Click on the Next button to continue.

The next step is to select the mailing list which will receive your campaign.

Keep in mind that you can choose more than one list. And if you have any subscribers contained on multiple lists, don’t worry! We do our magic and your email is only sent once! 

Click Next. 

Now let’s choose the appropriate format for your campaign.

Plain text campaigns only contain text and no other design elements like images or links. 

HTML and plain text campaigns let you incorporate all manner of images, fonts, and layouts, just like a web page. 

Once you choose the right format for you, click on the Next button to continue. 

To create your newsletter design click on the Take Me To The Editor button, and design your newsletter as previously shown.

From the Structure tab choose the container you want and drop it inside the empty editor. 

Click on the Settings button of your container. 

Go to the Container Type dropdown menu and select RSS Campaign. 

This is how we fetch your content from the RSS Feed url you added previously in Campaign Settings.

You can go ahead and style your title the way it suits your newsletter. 

Then click on the Update Campaign and Continue button.

When you’re done, click on the Next button to continue.

Before sending your actual campaign you can test it, of course, to see how it looks!  

Just go to the Design and Delivery Test Tab, add your email to receive the campaign and simply check how it looks! You can add up to 5 email addresses, separated by commas, and send your campaign to them as a test. 

If you don’t want to test your campaign, just click Skip Test. 

Now let’s select the recurrency settings. 

Choose Daily/Weekly recurrency for your RSS campaign. 

Next, set the time that your RSS campaign will be sent out, by selecting the Hour, Minutes and Timezone from the available dropdown menus. 

You can tick any day of the week for your schedule. If every day is selected, this acts as a daily schedule.

You can also choose Monthly recurrency for your RSS campaign.

You have two options: Day and Date. 

When Day is selected, you can set a day to schedule your campaign.

Keep in mind that you can add more than one option.

When Date is selected, you can set a date to schedule your campaign.

Here too you can add more than one option.

When you’re ready, click Next. 

Take a look at all of your campaign details one more time and click on the Preview button to look at your newsletter design. 

When you’re ready, click on the Start button. 

Congratulations! You’ve just set your first RSS campaign!

Happy email marketing!
