Thanks for joining me again for:
Day One: What is RSS?
Day Two: Email Subscribers
Day Three: CustomizingNow that you have customized the email that goes out to your subscribers each day, you may also want to schedule when that email gets sent. This is another great thing you can do with Feedburner!
Log into Feedburner, click on your feed, click the “Publicize” tab, and click on “Email Subscriptions” on the left hand side.
At the bottom of the sub-list, click on “Delivery Options.” You will see this screen:
Select your time zone, and then you can choose a two-hour window during which time your daily subscriber email will be sent. Which hours you choose is up to you, but you might want to take into account when you normally publish your posts, and when people might be more likely to read your email.
I set most of my blog posts to publish at 1am my time, and I set my daily subscriber email to send between 9am-11am. This way, I figure my subscribers are getting my daily posts on the morning of the day I post them. I prefer that to them receiving my posts at the end of the day, but that’s just me! Maybe you want to send your posts in the evening because you figure people have more time to read the email, instead of being busy and ignoring it in the morning. Your call!
I hope you are finding this series to be useful! Please let me know what you think! Tomorrow will be the last day of the Feedburner series, but I think tomorrow is my favorite tutorial! Come back and check it out!
