This is Part 2 of a 3 part blog series: How to Move from Feedburner to Mailchimp: Full Guide
STEP 3: Setting up your Blog (RSS Feed) to Email campaign in Mailchimp:
The Mailchimp blog also has a great tutorial on how to set up your RSS Feed to Email Campaign but I wanted to show you what I learned through the process.
- Login to your Mailchimp account and Create your Campaign – select RSS-Driven Campaign from the dropdown list:
- Add your RSS Feed URL. Most of the time it is just your email address and then /feed at the end like this: http://cascadevalleydesigns.com/feed/ but if you are not sure just add your website address into the field and Mailchimp will try and find it for you. If you have more specific needs for your blog emails such as sending a certain category or tag of your blog then find the URL to that particular tag or category and just add /feed to the end, like this: http://cascadevalleydesigns.com/tag/wordpress/feed/ . If you want to “mashup” a couple of different blog categories such as your main blog and a custom video blog post you can click on chimpfeedr and combine a few feeds into one email – pretty slick indeed. MailChimp also has some pretty good guides for bloggers and RSS feeds as well so check those out.
