What if you have one blog, but you want your subscribers to be able to choose between Daily RSS emails and Weekly RSS emails? That’s totally do-able!
Let’s assume you’ve already got your RSS to Email feature set up and working properly (if you need a hand setting that up in the first place, you can find directions here).
To set up an alternate schedule, follow these steps:
- Head over to your RSS page in Mimi, and click “Add a Feed.”
- In the window that appears, write in your regular Feed URL
- At the end of your URL, add this exact text: ?1
So, if your first RSS Feed URL is http://blog.madmimi.com/feed, your second RSS Feed URL would be http://blog.madmimi.com/feed?1
Now, you’ll have two different setups for the same RSS Feed. You can keep your original schedule intact, and schedule the second feed to send to a different list at a different time.
For example, you can schedule http://blog.madmimi.com/feed to send new posts every day at a certain time, to a “Daily” audience list. Then, you can schedule http://blog.madmimi.com/feed?1 to send new posts every Friday, to a “Weekly” audience list.
If at any time you’d like to add another alternate feed schedule, you can click “Add a Feed,” and use http://blog.madmimi.com/feed?2
Note: If ?1 doesn’t do the trick, you can try adding #1 at the end of the Feed URL instead. It’s also a good idea to visit the amended URL to make sure the Feed loads correctly, before setting it up in Mad Mimi.
