Create an RSS email with multiple categories of content - each powered by a separate feed.
Create complex newsletters where blog, news, events, and webinar content is into a single email using multiple data sources.
The possibilities are endless.

Advanced Optimization Features

FeedOtter contains lots of extra features that make the little things easy.
Image Processing:

We have built a proprietary image processing technology to make sure your images resize and look perfect in all emails. No more stretching, shrinking, or missing images. FeedOtter recommends that you have tags setup on your blog and that all images therein are at least 600px wide to ensure the images in your emails look great -always. We always prefer to use a tag to ensure the images shown in your RSS emails are the same as those shown elsewhere on the web.

UTM Tracking:

It’s easy to add UTM codes to your Salesforce Marketing Cloud RSS email from inside FeedOtter. Here’s an example of how to add UTM properties to the FeedOtter loop. You will need to edit the FeedOtter template code a bit but we’re here to help if you get stuck.

Salesforce Marketing Cloud Merge Tokens

You can use ANY Marketing Cloud merge tokens in your RSS emails. Clients have used this to inject banner ads, first name text, or custom greetings.
