You may have a bunch of traffic coming to your website from different ways. But how you will promote your newly published article?
You may use different methods to promote your new articles. But how will you make sure that your all newly published article will reach to your all visitors?
Almost every blogger uses social platform to promote their articles. But we are not 100% sure that our newly published article will reach your all users? because not every our visitor comes from social media.
Traffic coming from the social network is just temporary. You cannot call them your loyal visitor’s who reaches to your website from any social network. they may hit your website just for a few minutes and then leaves.
if your visitor like any of post that you have published on your website they will not take a chance of missing other posts that you will publish on your website.
There are two best ways which they use and won’t miss your newly published. One, they will subscriber to your Email list and the second one they will regularly visit your website to check new updates on your site.
The world is too busy now a day they won’t even remember to visit your website regularly. So Method Number Two not gonna work we only have method number one to make our visitors to visit your website.
For that you just need to collect emails from your loyal visitors, once you have collected the email from your subscriber then you would easily send an Automatic new post notification to them.
How Do I send an Automatic New Post Notification to My Subscriber?
If you are confused That how you will send automatic New Post notification to all of your subscribers. This is so simple we are going to use WordPress plugins called Email subscriber & Newsletters.
This plugin sends a small notification to your existing subscriber as soon as you publish a new article on your website.
So you do not need to have any other email marketing service, all process will be done by this plugin and you will be able to see all of the emails on inside WordPress dashboard.
Installing and configuring Email subscriber & Newsletters Plugin
Let’s install and configures Email subscriber & Newsletters plugin.
Login to your WordPress Admin account, click on Plugins and New plugins. Search for Email Subscribers & Newsletters which is created by Icegram. Simply click on install and activate the plugins.
This is what you will get after activating email subscribers and newsletters plugins. I will try to cover all these available option steps by step.
So let’s begin.
Here you will find all of your existing and newcomer subscribers. As you can see after clicking on subscribers tab I get only two emails.
The first one just for the demo you can delete it anytime you want. But the second is Admin email. Which you easily replace or edit using edit option.
Here you will be able to make your new templates or edit your existing Templates.
As you can see two templates already have been made. These two are default templates.
First one (New post Published) when you publish a new post this templates will be Used to send an automatic notification to your subscribers.
The second one (Welcome to Email Subscription) will be used for your Newsletter. when you manually want to send a small message to your subscriber.
You can edit these default template and you should do. Inside these templates, some text is written by default. So before using these templates I really recommend you to make some changes. You can do that by clicking on Edit.
This is where you can manage all of your settings related to new post notification. You can select different settings for your every category and make different settings for each.
But I really recommend, one setting should be for all of your categories. I have not made any categories so far that’s way I don’t have one.
If you want to send an email notification after publishing an article then choose email immediately. Or add to cron and send the email via a cron job. which mean notification will be sent to your subscribers based on your defined schedule.
Here are the settings for your Newsletter. If you have made another template or just edited default one (Welcome to Email Subscribers) you can choose them from here using (Select email subject from available list)
And the second one you can choose your email type as we just saw in the above Screenshot. You can either choose (send an email immediately or send an email via cron job).
The third one is about (select Subscribers group to send Email) by default you can choose Public.
You will find every setting that you need. In the Admin section, you will find all the settings which are related to Admin. For example Admin email address, Opt-In Type options (Double Opt-In or Single Opt-In) much more.
In Signup Confirmation, you will be seeing all of your Subscribers settings such as what should your subscriber see if they subscribe to your blog or any error occurs while subscribing.
And cron this is where you can schedule your email.
Setting Up Email Subscription Widget
Simply go to your widget area and look for email Subscribers. it depends on your choice where you Choose to set up your website subscription box.
Drap widget, set widget title and save.
You can also choose Name field if you choose YES then all users will be asked to fill the name field or if you choose NO then all users will not be able to see the name field.
in my case, I will select yes. Now it’s time to visit your website and see is it working or not.
As you can see I just put my name and email and successfully Subscribed. Now just let confirm are we getting the new email or not.
Above in the Screenshot, we can see new subscriber but it’s still showing unconfirmed. it will remain the same until the user does not confirm his email address.
If you are seeing this because you have chosen (Double-Opt-In) on Settings sections. if you choose (Single Opt-In) then subscriber won’t be asked to confirm their email.
That’s it, Now sit back and wait for new subscribers. we have completely configured Email Subscriber plugins. Now An Automatic new post notification will be sent to your all subscriber whenever you publish a new article.
