Post Notifications in WordPress Made Easy (video)

See how quickly you can create an email subscription service on your WordPress site in the short video above.

The sum up the main features :

  • quick to setup
  • design the way you want it
  • flexible frequency: immediately, daily, weekly, monthly
  • segment your content with category filters
  • stats for each send post notification
  • switch from Feedburner, Subscribe2 and MailChimp in a breeze

We’re awfully proud of it. Why? Because it was a lot of work to make email alerts so simple!

    I assume that this works only with blog “posts” and a newsletter is not automatically sent out when a “page” is created. Is this correct?

    Yup, this also works for pages and custom post types.

    Sounds great, but I already have over 400 followers on my jetpack (which I am looking to ditch because it doesn’t offer stats). Is there any way that I can transfer my jetpack followers onto this service?

    Aaron, we’re you able to export? Apparently, you still need to get assistance from wordpress.com staff to do it:

    Hiya Kim. I was able to import my subscribers from jetpack to wysija. Here’s how: At the bottom of my subscriber list on jetpack was an option to ‘download all as CSV’. I did this and my subscriber list came up in an excel page. I then copied and pasted this into a ‘new list’ in the subscribers section of wysija.

    One more thing, though. I’m trying to use a new gmail account as the sender of my notifications, and have tried to set this up. However, when I try to send a test email, it’s not able to go through and I get an ‘error’ message. Any thoughts on how I can rectify this?

    Cheers,
    Aaron
