Last updated on September 22, 2020

Blogging is an essential tool for every business. However, it’s not only about writing blogs and leaving it there that does the magic. Once a blog is published, you need to go out and promote it so that it goes viral.

First, promoting new articles to your subscribers

You may promote your blog on different platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, various forums, etc., and each will get you visitors. But the most profitable way of getting traffic is banking on the people that are already present on your list.

Your subscribers will definitely be more loyal than a random visitor that visits a Facebook group. So before you go ahead and promote your blog elsewhere, we advise you to promote it to your own subscriber list first.

So, using Email Subscribers plugin, an automatic notification email can be sent to your subscribers as soon as a post is published on your blog. This automation not only saves tons of your time but also makes the entire process stress-free and simple.

Here’s how to set it up

This is a simple configuration.

Step 1 – Go to your WordPress Dashboard -> Email Subscribers -> Campaigns

Email Subscribers > Campaigns

Step 2 – Click on Create Post Notification

Email Subscribers > Campaigns > Create Post Notification

Step 3 – Select one or more lists you want to send the post notification t.

Step 4 – Select an email Template from the dropdown. If you don’t want to use an existing email template, you can create your own.

Step 5 – Select Post Category for which you want to send the post notification. So, whenever a post is published, it will check the post categories and match them with the post notification. If it matches, it will send a notification for that post.

If you want to send the notification for all posts irrespective of categories, select All Categories. It will also consider all categories which will create after creating this post notification.

Step 6 – If you want to send the post notification for Custom Post Types (CPT), then select custom post types.

It will send the post notification when selected custom post type is published. Please note, it won’t match categories for custom post types.

Step 7 – Click “Save Changes”

That’s it. You are done!

Note: The email templates for sending automatic notifications will be dynamic and it will contain keywords.

For example:

Email Subject – New post published {{POSTTITLE}}

{{POSTTITLE}} – will automatically pull in the title of the post that has been published. Thus saving you time and energy of doing it manually.

And with the time you saved, better utilize it for writing more blogs, promotion on social media or simply spend time with family.
