Today we’re suggesting ten different ways you can use RSS feeds to help your brand or business find more customers, promote itself and keep track of the marketplace.
Distribute your blog content
– adding an RSS feed to your blog or news page allows its content to be automatically shared around the internet.
Create a newsletter
– we aggregate blog posts into a pre-defined template and send it out as a newsletter to a regular schedule
Receive alerts of new content
on blogs – Whenever a client updates their blog, I get an email with a link to the new article. I use
.com to do this (home page, scroll down to the bottom)
Create a personal newspaper
, Feedly or
where all your favourite blogs are collated into one place for you to read
– use a feed to get updates on when a competitor’s website changes. You can use feedreader.com to find feeds on websites.
