Is there a section of subscribe form on your website that collects email addresses? Did you know that you can automatically email your blog posts – without doing anything after you write them?
Automatically email your blog posts
Some people prefer to receive news via email rather than via blogs or an RSS reader.
Emailing your blog posts is important because the majority of your readers will not visit your blog daily, weekly, or monthly to read your posts – they become busy and/or forget. If your readers are unaware that your new, incredible blog post has been published, they may never read it!
The simplest way to notify your readers that you’ve published something new is to send a ‘snippet’ of your blog post via email blast, complete with an attention-grabbing headline, photo, and read more link.
Note: Some people send their entire blog post via email as a result of it being automatic and stress free. However, it should not be like that. If your main target is to increase traffic, you should always be looking to increase traffic to your website by thinking on improving your SEO – search engine optimization. Also, you need to note that a snippet whets the appetite of your audience and encourages them to visit your site and read the entire post!
Mailchimp is one of the most popular tools for sending your blog posts via email.
