Automated Monthly Blog Round Up Email

SOLVE

Hi there! I'm trying to automate a monthly email to share with my blog subscribers of the recent content that's been published.

 

I've reached the point of creating this email and adding in the RSS feed but I've found it's not very customizable.

 

Is there a way to only include blog posts published under certain topics? OR is there a way to exclude blog posts from certain topics?

 

 

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!

Hi @SRossing,

 

If you want to customize your monthly blog round-up emails beyond the options that are described here, 'Set up your blog subscription emails', I'd say your best option would be to manually create this email. It's not automation, I know, but it gives you the opportunity to put some life into the otherwise very mechanic email.

 

Best regards!

Hi @SRossing,

If you're looking to create an RSS feed specific to certain topics you can do this by using blog tags.

Once using blog tags, you can navigate to Marketing > Website > Blog > Tags

Click on the tag that you want to use which will open the page itself for all the posts using this tag.

Copy the URL from your search bar and add /rss.xml to the end of the URL.

This can now be used to build a blog notification email for a specific topic.

Hope this helps!

Hi @SRossing ,

So it sounds like you would like to send RSS blog subscription emails only for certain blog post topics?

 

Well! Currently it is not possible at the moment - I did some digging, and I found a similar idea here posted by someone else on HubSpot Ideas forum

 

While it looks like this is not currently planned, I'd recommend you to upvote their idea and leave your use case there too, which will hopefully let HubSpot product team know! 🙂

Hope this helps!
