Optimizing Feedburner to Help Increase Your Reach

I just set up a feedburner feed for this blog that people can use to subscribe to updates: http://feeds.feedburner.com/ryandsullivan. A lot of people use Feedburner, but not everybody takes full advantage of the features it offers. I created this short video tutorial for optimizing feedburner showing you things like

  1. How to change when your feedburner emails are delivered.
  2. How to change the subject line of your feedburner emails.
  3. How to link a Twitter account to Feedburner.

And more. If any of that interests you go ahead and watch the video. If it doesn’t interest you, have a great day anyway!

If you have no idea what Feedburner is or what it does, your secret is safe with me. You can read all about it here. Or if you have any questions feel free to leave them in the comments!

    Hi Ryan! I’m enjoying your new blog & just subscribed (I loved NMB, too, I have to say & will miss it). You’re a great writer. As a mom of a child with Autism, I especially enjoy your thoughts about that :)

    This was super helpful, just changed my email titles after watching this so now they’re a little more interesting hopefully!
    Question on the “ping shot” option that was checked on the left hand side there. Do you recommend that? Mine isn’t active right now and I’m wondering if that would help google reader update a little more quickly since it randomly decided to delay my posts this week and I’ve been pinging it manually.

    Ryan- Excellent blog. Can you explain how a subscriber can get an email from the feed but not take action. What action must they take? Don’t they just read the email? Thanks.

      Well, assuming you’re trying to monetize your site or get people to buy something from you, “take action” could mean click through to a sales page or download a free report. Something like that. But yes, most of the time it’s just a matter of reading the article or post.
