Simplified Subscriber Sign up - Part II

Wednesday, October 19, 2005

In Simplified Subscriber Sign up - Part I I described how to send readers to a sign up form for a feed; great for email signatures, web site chicklets etc.

But wouldn't it be better if you could personalize the signup? If you have a list of names you want to invite to your email feed, wouldn't it be great if you could prefill that dialog with their email address?

You can. Extending the approach in Part I, URLs of the following form will pre-populate the email field:


Simply grab your feedid from the HTML signup form and use your favorite mail merge product to construct the URL for each user. For the HTTP purists, coding the "@" sign as "%40" also works. For example:


This address only fills in the dialog correctly - the user still has to hit the "subscribe me" button and go through verification. Still, if you want to invite your colleagues, customers, prospects, partners, friends, members, congregation members or whoever to get your blog or feed sent to them, this is the way to go.

In fact, to make this really easy, the HTML code generator has just been updated to generate these links for you. And while you're in the dashboard creating these links, why not trial FeedBlitz Turbo? You can quit at any time and there's 15 days before you're charged.
