RSS-To-Email

One of ConstantContact competitors has a feature called RSS-to-Email.


What it does is once a week it reads an RSS feeds, and sends the content by email to subscribers.


Basically we have a blog and we want to send an automatic weekly newsletter containing the latest news.


Is that something that is doable on Constant Contact?

campaign creation

Hello,



It is possible that you can generate content of your email from an outside source and then push it to us via our API's. You would do this by using our Campaign API, which will allow you to create a custom HTML or XHTML email on our system. You would need to create the HTML, and also set up a mechanism that also includes the content that you are generating, and put it in the required XML format and POST it to the Campaign URI.



If you have any questions about this specifically, or other things that you can do with our API's, please let me know.

Re: campaign creation

Hello,

 

I removed your email address for security reasons.  I also wanted to let you know that I sent you an email with some additional information.  Most everything a developer would need to create an integration with Constant Contact can be found here on this site. We don't have step-by-step instructions for everything, but instead offer documentation on using our REST API services, as well as wrappers and sample forms, these developer forums, and developer email support.  I always recommend searching the forums initially, because the solutions to many common issues can be found there.

 

Cheers,

So, this post started nearly 3 years ago. Is CC planning on creating this as a feature? With the explosion of websites being driven by Wordpress and other blog-style CRMs, it only makes sense to meet this demand. Or at least provide a better way than, hire a developer to use our API. If the "other guys" have been doing this for this long, why wouldn't CC join?

I can assure you, the newsletter is dead for my business. Real-time information, provided via email is what we need. 

I really thought when I downloaded the Wordpress plugin, that this is what I would get!
