Third, Set the Post Notification Emails

Go to the Email Subscribers plugin. This plugin will help you create, edit, send automatic post notifications as soon as a new blog gets published on your website.

Step 1: Compose/ Edit the New Post Notification Email

Step 3: Save the notification

Last, Test the Process

Now that, all the initial settings are done. Test the whole leads cycle. Ideally, you should subscribe to the list with a test email id, you get your freebie then go ahead and post a new blog and check if you get a notification email on the test email id.

If these things are achieved, your process is working fine.
