Creating a New Email from RSS Feed is a useful feature to save time, especially when creating email newsletters.

RSS feeds are an easy way to retrieve content (blog posts, news, etc.) from the internet. With RSS feeds, you can automate the process of inserting content into your newsletter.

Step 1: Adding RSS feeds

 

Decide which RSS feed you want to use for your newsletter. The RSS feed may be from your blog (for e.g. the MailUp Blog has this RSS feed: http://blog.mailup.com/feed/) or from another website (such as RSS feed weather information from The Weather Channel).

Now, in Email > New > From RSS Feed, you have to choose an RSS template. You can choose a default template or upload your own newsletter template (view this page on how to upload your own template).

When creating/editing your own RSS template, keep in mind that RSS feeds are retrieved in MailUp through dynamic tags. In order for your email to retrieve the RSS information correctly, you must include the appropriate dynamic tags, which can be found here.  

 

Select the RSS feed to be retrieved into your email template:

Click Add new RSS feed at the bottom of the page. You'll have to add the RSS feed under Settings > List preferences > RSS. For more info, view this page.

Select what content will be included in your email and choose the respective position the blog articles will have in your email.

Finally, click on Create message. This step will take you to the built-in HTML editor in which you can further edit the email.
