1. Automate sharing of new content on your website to your email subscribers
For this case study, I will be automating sharing of any new content (post/page/product) on our website digitalsplendid.host to all email subscribers using GoDaddy Email Marketing software. Any popular email marketing software should accomplish this objective. Sharing to your subscribers any new content (especially blog posts/products) is one of the easiest and cost effective ways to generate traffic/sale to your website/online store.
Need to activate RSS to Email feature under Add-ons.
In order to send emails only about fresh blog posts, feed URL instead of https://digitalsplendid.host/feed, will be https://digitalsplendid.host/blog/feed.
In order to send emails only about fresh product additions, feed URL https://digitalsplendid.host/shop/feed.
In case not in a position to implement email marketing software due to cost or other reasons, a free plugin that will serve the purpose of sending emails to subscribers about new blog posts is Email Subscribers & Newsletters plugin by Icegram.
