    How to Send Feedburner RSS Update to Aweber Mailing List

    By in Email Marketing

    We have covered couple of posts in the past about Aweber. I have started using Aweber  for ShoutMeLoud newsletter recently and I will come with my review of Aweber soon. Initially thinking of moving from feedburner to Aweber is scary but thinking of advantages of Email list, I can’t ignore this opportunity. Before we move ahead with another tutorial you should refer to:

    Aweber is technically used for sending Email newsletter but some time back Aweber also added the feature to send Blog RSS update as Email newsletter. This will make sure, that your subscriber will keep receiving Email updates.

    Add Blog Broadcast by adding Feed

    To get started with you need to create a list and once you have created a list, click on “Messages>Blog Broadcast”.

    Click on + sign and add your Blog RSS feeds and customize your Template titles by clicking on personalize:

    You can pick from any pre saved template and add it in your newsletter. I would suggest if you know designing, create a HTML template matching with your blog design and brand, else create a blank template.

    Set time for Sending:

    This is one of the most important features which will let you control when your blog broadcast will be sent to your users. Depending upon your blog update frequency set this. I have set it to 4. Also sending time is very important, depending on your time-zone you should consider finding the best time to send Newsletter.

    Once done, click on “Save Blog Broadcast” and now your new posts will be automatically sent via Email Newsletter.

    I already started using Aweber for ShoutMeLoud newsletter and will be sharing my experience and things which I learned after using Aweber. For now I would suggest you should not miss the chance to create an Email list for your blog using Aweber and sign up for Aweber.

    Do let us know what do you use for your blog? Feed Burner or Aweber? Do you have any plans for Aweber Email marketing in future?

    Harsh i have 2200 Feedfurner Email Subscribers in one of my blog. If i will switch to Aweber, then how to transfer that 2200 subscribers to Aweber.
    Is it possible?

    Hey Bilal
    There is a way but it’s not very feasible and not very effective.
    You can export your Feedburner subscriber Emails in a CSV file and import them on Aweber but they will get an Email again to subscribe and this way you might lose many subscriber..
    What I did is, I let the RSS subscriber run the way they are and on the other hand added Email subscription using Aweber.. So my earlier subscriber won’t miss any thing and new subscriber will receive update via Aweber Newsletter…

    I tried to import my Feedburner email subscribers into my Aweber account last year, and they denied it. I never did pursue it any further, so I don’t know if they can be persuaded, or if their policies have changed. On all new blogs, though, I start with the Aweber Blog Broadcast on day 1!

    Roy try now and it should work but again your subscriber need to reconfirm for Aweber Email newsletter…
    I missed this chance to create list from the first day but now working on it.. :)

    Hi Harsh
    Is Aweber better than Feedburner? Email subscription can also be given through feedburner, so why should we switch to Aweber? Please tell me, as I am new to this, so I might be missing something. Or is it just that you are experimenting Aweber?

    Hey DTP
    I’m learning Email marketing and till now I’m happy with my decision of shifting to aweber.. Building an Email list is the best thing which you could do and this will eventually help you in long run….
    It has some feature like follow up message, broadcast & blog broadcast which makes it amazing..
    Where as Feedburner has only 1 option call Blog broadcast , i.e. sending updated using Feeds…. Though major difference between two of them is paid and free…
    But if you have budget to spend, I would suggest go for aweber and after couple of months.. You will be appreciating your decision..!!

    Thank You Harsh for sharing this information. I am very close to start with aweber :) will try it then..

    Pankaj do give it a shot but make sure you are ready for some serious work else you will be wasting your money. You need to work on welcome Email and personalize them..but if you get everything right, you will be making most out of it.. :)

    Hi Harsh, i got a question for you. My blog is only 4 months old and I have already got 60 subscribers for my blog. If I use Aweber right from now on, will their be any benefits. I don’t know a thing about aweber, since I am pretty new to it. So plz explain?

    Harsh Agrawal

    Sathish Since your blog is blogger centric, I would suggest use Aweber as creating a list would be really useful for you in long run..
    Well I have already shared few article like this which will help you to get started.. Else if you have any more questions , feel free to drop in and ask your questions.. :)

    Hi Harsh, Thanks for your reply. Well, I got more questions for you. How do I get start with them. I have seen that for the first 500 subscribers the monthly price is $19. What if we get more subscribers in the future. It looks a bit costly to me. Any suggestions?

    Hey Sathish
    Think this way..More subscriber means when you pitch something you will have more people to take action..So obviously your sales will increase.. I don’t think anyone will mind paying more than $19 in that case… For ShoutMeLoud in couple of days we have reached 100 Subscriber.. So I will be paying more by next month ….But still I’m ok with it..Because I have a plan to pitch :)

    Thanks! Very useful info here and was fairly easy to setup… :)

    Hi Harsh,

    I was looking at the legal aspect, and every email needs to have a postal address at the bottom of the email. When Feedburner sends the email, it uses an address from Google. What happens when you use Aweber and you are in India ? Do you need to use a postal address from India ?

    Harsh Agrawal

    Ashish yes it’s mandatory to mention your postal address even in aweber or any other Email service .

    hey! good news is i have subscribed to aweber from the very beginning and already have my list of subscribers… but i can not figure out how to set up a decent looking blog broadcast that looks like the feedburner emails that i receive from people.
    i don’t need a fancy template, i just want to be able to pull some different variables from my rss feed… i’d like to create a “teaser” after the post title that has the first 200 words or so from my post as well as 1-2 full sized pictures from the post… followed by a link to “continue reading”
    i’m quite sure this should be something simple, i just don’t know how to make it happen! please help if you can! :)
    thanks

    Well, I got it now, Harsh. I am going to sign up for aweber. Thanks for helping me to take this decision.
