Most people know what an RSS Feed is: user-friendly blog content delivered to your social media feed as and when new content is published. For those who need an introduction, here’s a quick run-down of how to use Awebber to get your RSS feed content played on YouTube:
Step 1: Set Up Your RSS Feed
To get started, visit this page on our website and click on the button to create a free account. You’ll then be taken to your dashboard, where you can configure the settings for your RSS feed. From here, you can edit the settings for your RSS feed’s content delivery – the frequency with which you want content to be pushed to you – as well as the content of your RSS feed itself.
Step 2: Configure Your RSS Subscriptions
As you may know, RSS Feeds can be used to subscribe to other RSS feeds. To make the process of discovering relevant content easy, we’ve designed Awebber’s dashboard to auto-magically populate with content from feeds you specify in your RSS subscription settings.
To see how this works, click on the EDIT button located at the top of your dashboard and enter the URL of a blog or website that you’d like to have included in your RSS feed’s content. Then, in the corresponding section of the sidebar, enter the RSS Feed’s publication URL and select the type of content you want to see from this feed (i.e., all posts, only the latest, or any other option you choose from the drop-down menu). In this way, you’ll be able to easily keep track of content published by blogs and websites you follow, and you can quickly see what’s new.
Step 3: Promote Your RSS Channel
Once you’ve got your RSS feed set up and populated with content, you can start to promote it on social media. But before you do, it’s important to establish why you’re posting about this topic in the first place. Perhaps you’ve got a blog of your own and are simply looking to grow your audience? Or maybe you’ve just begun to explore the often-overlooked medium of YouTube and are keen to get your work played on as many platforms as possible?
Whatever your reasons, we’re sure you’ll be able to find a way to promote your RSS feed on social media.
Step 4: Enjoy Your New Featured Blog Posts
Finally, once you’ve promoted your RSS feed on social media, you can start to see the results of all your efforts. Every day, you’ll get email notifications whenever new content is published to your chosen feeds. And what’s great about this is that you don’t have to actively search for new content to appear in your inbox. Instead, your inbox will quietly suggest content to you, based on what you’ve previously been reading.
This feature makes exploring content on Awebber a much more passive experience. And that, in turn, may even drive you to explore more content, resulting in more conversions and bigger audiences. It’s all about the psychology of getting people to engage with your content.
