Don't like FeedBlitz orange? Customize your FeedBlitz emails!

Tuesday, November 22, 2005

Don't like FeedBlitz orange? Want to add your own logo? Change colors, fonts? Add your own promotional materials, ads or other graphics?

Now you can, with FeedBlitz Pro.

Available from your syndication management area, you can access the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) mail template editor (see the snapshot image on the left) by clicking the "Pro" icon for your feed. It is pre-populated with the FeedBlitz layout to help get you started. You can add (and remove!) pretty much anything you like from this editor. You can see how you're doing as you edit by using the preview button. Graphic designers (and Safari users) can also get at the HTML template source to complete the customization process by including CSS stylesheets and other tags.

Once you're ready, click the "Use this template" check box and save. This is a premium service - USD $4.95 per feed per month - with a two week evaluation period. You'll be asked to subscribe. Once through the PayPal screens, which only take a minute or two (less if you've used them before) , you're up and running. If your brand, your image, is worth more than 16 cents a day, then this service is a must-have.

Better yet, the template is also used in the landing page after a subscriber registers to get your feed, so that the entire experience can be customized to your look and feel.

Finally, you can combine "Pro" with the new post truncation feature (see the new FAQs) and with "Turbo" for comprehensive, customized publication of your RSS content on your schedule.

If he liked orange we'd be good! I've commented on the blog - I'm sure you can imagine what I think about it. It did inform the title though - might as well have a little fun with it!

Ok, this is good. BUT!!!

I also have FeedBlitz Pro account, and i would like not to see FeedBlitz as sender of emails to my readers. Is it possible? Can i change email in 'From:' to mine?

Great! But here's a curveball for you -- if I'm a Pro/Turbo user, would you give me the flexibility of sending out emails on my own desired schedule? E.g., I would like to send updates to my site on a weekly basis instead of as they happen (so as not to put off my busier readers with frequent emails). Can I do this? Of course, this goes against the whole I-want-it-now idea of RSS but then, email isn't RSS, as you yourself point out.

Also, hellijs's comment about the From address is another nice-to-have.

Pro and Turbo users should expect to be able to change the real name of the from email and the reply-to address in the next 10 days or so - it's a common feature request from premium customers.

Weekly publication is no curve ball - FeedBlitz does this now for Turbo users. Just pick the "on demand" time frame and you can ship those emails whenever you're ready!

I love the service and like having your banner at the top of the mail.

But the line Here Are Your FeedBlitz Blog Updates is printed to fat to fit in the box on gmail using Opera.

So it looks like this:

Here Are Your FeedBlitz Blog

With "Updates" hanging out of the banner.

Just a tip, it doesn't bother me or anything.

Good luck. :)
