Yipee! I just finished creating my first RSS autoresponder feed. I set it up for the Blog to Book MiniCourse which is also set up as an email autoresponder. If you want to take it for a test run, click here.
Setting up the autoresponder information was not a problem. It’s much like setting up any autoresponder sequence where you set up each message, create a campaign, select the messages that go in the campaign and the days for delivery.
Where it got a little trickier is after publishing the RSS feed, then you have to set it up so people can subscribe to it. You can set up a web form for people to submit their name and email address before they get the feed or just give them a subscription link. Then they get directed to a thank you page. This means you have to know how to set up a web page. You can copy code for a very simple, bland web thank you page, but if you want it to match your website, you need to be able to "design" and post a web page.
The alternative is to submit the feed to RSS feed directories so the public at large can sign up.
