How to send emails from RSS feed with a free service

On April 14, 2021, Google announced that Feedburner would be losing its email subscription service. This has created many problems for those who relied on the free subscription and sending email service most used in the world. If you’ve always relied on Google’s Feedburner to send your site’s readers newsletters with all the latest articles published, you therefore panicked when you discovered that the service in question has decided to stop sending email newsletters and you have not yet been able to find a valid alternative to use.

The best alternative to this feature is a new platform called “FollowIT” which allows you to manage subscriptions of your feeds for free.

HOW IT WORKS

We have our very own Follow page related to this blog that we can share to allow somebody to join our feed, in addition to the form possibility. That is very useful if we want to use follow icons. The Follow page can be customized to a certain extent and looks very neat. Take a look at our own Page if you want to see how it looks.
Once we have added our feed, we can customize the text, emails we send, default settings and all of that.
After we have added our form, follow icon and customized our settings, that’s it. We’re done, we do not have to worry about prompt and nice looking notifications about our new posts.

If we have a list, we can import it. We can also export subscribers if we want to add it to another software. The process is a bit manual here for the time being, so this is far from optimal. Still, it’s not too bad.

The service provides a basic free plan that includes the ability to offer up to 5 feeds from your account, delivery on all channels, filtering options, the ability to view and download followers’ emails, function to import followers, possibility to set the language of the registration page and confirmation emails, access to statistics (with only unfollow and 1 month of historical data) and support within 72 hours. The content update cycle is every 6 hours, the history of saved messages includes the last 100 stories. For those who need more extensive features, there are paid plans, the price of which must be calculated.
