Hey @weCREATEco,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with blog posts to get this resolved. To provide some context, you have the option to invite customers to subscribe to blog posts and receive notifications when published or allow customers to subscribe to your blog feed through a third-party app. I recommend checking out our Advanced Publishing for Blogs Documentation, as it touches on this in further detail. 

 

To invite customers to subscribe to your blog, you can: 

 

  • Head to Online Store > Blog, from the Shopify admin. 
  • Click the name of the blog post where you want to add the feed name for the blog.

  • In the Content field, enter text with the feed name, for example Subscribe to this blog's RSS feed using http://store.myshopify.com/blogs/blogname.atom.

  • Click Save.

 

Alternatively, you can use an app available within the Shopify App Store to deliver all blog content to the shops subscribing customers. I've gone ahead and recommended a few you can check out: 

 

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Blair, 

 

many thanks for getting back to me. 

I have taken on an existing website built by someone else so am doing the hard thing of reverse engineering it… 

 

We have have list of subscribers who have ticked the Shopify box to be email subscibers within Shopify marketing. I signed myself up as a subscriber via my personal email account, however when I posted a blog I didn’t receive a notification of the new blog post making me believe that something is not setup correctly in blog? I would expect all new blog posts to automatically go to anyone who was subscribed to email marketing?

I did also discover that there is no welcome email when you subscribe. I have now set that up via the Shopify marketing automations. 


Is there a tick box I’m missing so that new blog posts are automatically pushed through to the email marketing subscribers or is that a totally different thing and just for creating email marketing from the templates rather than pushing the blog to them? 

Many thanks in advance

Hey @weCREATEco,

 

To ensure I'm fully understanding, have the blogs been set up to invite customers to subscribe to them? Currently subscribed customers will receive any marketing campaigns completed on the shop, but would have to subscribe to the shops blog feed specifically to be notified for any new postings. 

 

To complete this, you can: 

 

  • Head to Online Store > Blog, from the Shopify admin. 
  • Click the name of the blog post where you want to add the feed name for the blog.

  • In the Content field, enter text with the feed name, for example Subscribe to this blog's RSS feed using http://store.myshopify.com/blogs/blogname.atom.

  • Click Save.

I recommend checking out our Marketing Campaign Documentation, as it covers the various types of marketing activity available natively as well as with third-party services. 

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions!

Hello

Thank you for this helpful information. However I'm confused as to what to write in the content field... where do we insert our Feed name ? Also, where does this link take clients?

There appears to be NO updates to the Shopify Email App in regards to automatically sending blog posts via email to subscribers. Is this a feature that Shopify will be adding? If so, when?

This is such a BASIC feature - I am still surprised this isn't one of the Shopify Email App automation. A store owner shouldn't have to install (and pay for) yet one more app just to send their blog articles to their subscribers. I hope this is something that gets added SOON.

I too would like this feature of sending my blog posts to my customers who wish to be subscribed to my built-in shopify blog. It can count against my monthly email send limit and I will pay for any additional messages sent.

 

not sure why this hasn't been implemented yet?
