Recently I have been moving some of my clients over from Feedburner to Mailchimp to send out blog posts to subscribers through email. That’s right Mailchimp is not only an Email Newsletter Manager but it also provides many services such as RSS Feeds to Email. Before I tell you how to do this transition, lets review the reasons why this may be a good move for you:
Why move your Blog Subscriber list from Feedburner to Mailchimp?
- Easily manage your subscriber list and use for other purposes such as sending out newsletters or announcements…not just your blog posts
- Customize Customize Customize! Isn’t it frustrating that you have very little control of how those blog emails look from Feedburner? What if you wanted to add your latest product to the email footer? Can’t do that in Feedburner but you can in Mailchimp!
- Better scheduling: You can send emails daily, weekly or even monthly in Mailchimp. Feedburner only has the daily option.
