FeedBlitz adds "newsflash" email broadcast capability

Monday, June 26, 2006

Sometimes you have breaking news that just can't wait to be blogged and picked up in the next scheduled FeedBlitz run. Sometimes you just have to get the news out now, now, now.

And, now, you can, if you're a FeedBlitz premium publisher.

Premium publishers - Pro and Turbo - can now send emails immediately to their subscriber base. If you have a Pro template enabled, the mail is formatted using it. You can send "newsflashes" by clicking the alert icon that now appears at www.feedblitz.com/f?Lists

The editor is the same one used for Pro template creation, so you can style your message, insert images and more - it's very easy to use. Once you create your text, you preview it in its formatted style and then kick off the email (you can't stop it once it starts, so be really sure it's ready before you hit that final button!). Once done, you are sent a quick report (by mail of course) of how many subscribers the broadcast was sent to.

Uses for this "out of band" (non-blog derived) communication include:
  • Breaking news (e.g. is your boss going to be on TV in an hour? Send a newsflash!).
  • Urgent needs or opportunities (e.g. a seat for tomorrow's training class just opened up).
  • A way to email your email subscribers only without going via the blog (e.g. communicating a special offer).
