Curating and sending newsletters is a time consuming operation for many owners and managers. A new RSS solution, from the founders of FlipRSS, is set to simplify the process of collecting and sharing content with subscribers.
A single click when visiting a web page captures the title, description, image and link of the content being viewed and stores it in a custom, branded RSS feed. The ability to capture content regardless of the channel - whether that’s on YouTube, a pertinent Tweet or thread, an inspiring article, an images or anything else you can find online - enables SnipRSS users to curate rich, engaging feeds that can be produce engaging automated newsletters. Alternatively, they can be shared directly with subscribers.
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an internet standard developed to deliver computer-readable updates to online content. They are frequently used by blogs and podcasts to syndicate latest content to subscribers, third party systems, newsletters and more. To avoid having to frequently check favourite websites for new content, RSS provides the ability for site users to subscribe to, and be notified of, new content when it is published by the author. It makes content portable, sharable and open so is an ideal format for publishers and content producers or curators.
Content can be edited at the point of capture or in the SnipRSS platform to enable customised titles and descriptions of the content - ready for sharing. Captured content can be edited, re-ordered and deleted to give complete control over what is shared with subscribers and visitors.
SnipRSS has been developed by the founders of FlipRSS, a tool that enables multiple RSS feed newsletters that are not only automated but personalised to individual subscriber preferences. Speaking on the launch of the new tool, founder and lead developer Andrew Gleave commented, “We are focussed on helping newsletter creators increase subscriber engagement and deliver more value whilst saving time in the process. SnipRSS epitomises this ethos and allows content, from YouTube videos to Tweets, to be collected quickly and efficiently. Storing this content as an RSS feed provides creators with the ability to automate their newsletters using RSS-to-Email features - common with many of the leading email service providers.”
On the compatibility of SnipRSS with other newsletter solutions, Andrew added,
“The beauty of SnipRSS is it can be used as a standalone product, or to compliment other email platforms in the delivery of RSS-to-email newsletter campaigns. In most cases, this provides newsletter owners or teams with the flexibility to enhance their workflow and efficiencies without having to change email service provider and without incurring significant costs.”
The service is extremely cost effective with all tiers offering an unlimited number of RSS feeds. Trying the service is simple and requires no commitment through a free-for-life plan, which is limited to 50 posts. Paid tiers start at just £18 per year - just £1.50 per month.
