WHAT IS A BLOG BROADCAST NEWSLETTER?

A blog broadcast newsletter is an email newsletter that you create by pulling from the published articles on your blog’s RSS feed. If you have a WordPress or Blogger blog, then you absolutely have an RSS feed. Every time you publish a new article to your blog, it will be added to your Aweber blog broadcast, so the great thing about this strategy is that you can set it once and forget it.

HOW TO USE A BLOG BROADCAST

When I first started my consulting business, I was spending most of my time creating content and searching for clients, I didn’t have the time necessary to publish a regular newsletter. BUT one thing I knew was that it was very important to continue engaging my list. Sporadic engagement will only result in sporadic results, and people will forget why they signed up in the first place or even who you are. That’s why it’s a great idea to use a blog broadcast newsletter as your main weekly, bi-weekly newsletter, or as an article wrap-up type of a newsletter.

    Thank you Lisa! I am working on my new newsletter now, so this video was right on time. Question: After I’ve done what you showed, do I need to remove the text that’s currently there in order to put in my own copy? I’m afraid to remove any of the default text! :) Thanks!

      Hey Kelly,
      If you’re going to customize your blog broadcast newsletter, then all you need to do is add copy or html above the default personalization code or below it. All the code does is pull the blog post information from your RSS feed. If you wanted to create a totally customized newsletter with pulling from the feed, then you would create a plain “broadcast” newsletter instead of a blog broadcast one.
      Thx for reading:)

    Very nice video tutorial Lisa. I am pondering whether to send out a blog broadcast or not. At this point I’m only using the follow up and the regular broadcast features of AWeber. If I change my mind I know where to get the step by step instructions!

    Thank you and have a wonderful holiday!

    Lisa, Lisa, Lisa….every time I read your blog I lose my footing (and a piece of my loyalty) to MailChimp. Aargh! At any rate, great tutorial and if I do ever decide to make the jump, at least I know where to come for an instruction manual! 😉
