Get Most out of Feed Burner Free Email Subscription Offer

Get Most out of Feed Burner Free Email Subscription Offer

Yesterday I talked about How to configure Free Email subscription option of feed burner. It’s time to get maximum out of Feed burner.

Do you know you can set the time of delivery of Emails and and also set the custom welcome message for confirmation message along with Email address which will be used to send the subscription email message.

I suppose by now you have activated the Email subscription offer and now it’s time to configure the other settings. These settings are   not critical but very useful for your blog.

Email Sending Time :

Email sending time is very crucial because suppose your email sending time is something when people are sleeping, chances are people might tend to ignore your email.

Keep your Email sending time when your blog get maximum visit. To Keep track of Time of maximum visit on your blog, you can use Site meter or Google analytic.

Now configure your Email delivery time under feed burner settings. Publicize > Email Subscriptions > Delivery options.

Email Communication preference :

By Default feedburner uses your registered Email address to send emails to Email subscribers. Though the best advice would be using a separate email address to send Emails.

Chances are someone might not be interested in your post emails and can send all emails to spam instead of unsubscribing. If you are using your main Email address to send Email, it’s better to create a new Email address for your domain like Feeds[at]domain-name.com. This way if something goes wrong, you can change your feeds Email address.

In this option You can also change the custom message that will go along with the email and give it a new look or add any personal message.

You can also change the subscription subjects to make user subscribe for your Email updates. If I see my Email subscriber stats, many users have not yet confirmed the subscription. So it’s only one time shot and try to make most out of it. Use your creativity to spice up your email Subject and custom message.

Now these two options sound basic to you and the fact is 75% of users leave it intact. To get the maximum out of your Email updates, play around with these settings and make appropriate changes.

    I have two questions re: feedburner. 1. Is it possible to occasionally send a message/post RIGHT NOW instead of a scheduled daily time? Sometimes my information is time sensitive and I would really like to know how to do this.
    2. You mention using the email confirmation custom message for un-verified subscribers. Can you elaborate on this? If I customize the message, how to I segregate that message and only send to those subscribers classified as not confirmed?
    Thank you!

    I did set the time according to INDIAN users as majority of my readers are from INDIA. One can set the image or logo of the website as well.

      Thanks for your comment, and that’s also true that Email subscription option will increase the no. of feed subscriber because this is more preferred over regular feeds.
