Hello,

I created a website where I send an advice every morning to my paying subscribers.

 

Every morning I create a blog post with the advice so people can see it after login. I would like that each day when I publish a blog post that an email is sent automatically to my customers with the title and content of my blog post. Or at leats everyday an email whith the link of the blog.

Hi @hugob,

 

So this could sort of be achieved but there are some issues that could potentially serve as a roadblock for this particular workflow you have in mind. The biggest issue would be that you’d have to schedule a campaign for every day of the year and have the setting “Reschedule recipients at send time” checked. One reason why you may want to avoid doing this would be that it could potentially lead to issues with deliverability if a campaign were to be sent out on a near daily basis and the open rates consistently ended up on the lower end of what we set as a target.  How to Monitor Email Deliverability Performance  has some numbers you can take a look at to serve as a guide for what we recommend you aim for. Another issue is that this is difficult to set up but not impossible.

As an alternative, you may want to consider only sending out campaigns for blog posts you anticipate high page view numbers for.

In terms of how to pull some of the information into the email you’d be looking for, Guide to Adding a Custom Web Feed in an Email would be a good place to start which will help but this does require some experience as it can be a bit more technical.
