"There aren't many services for converting RSS feeds to emails and even less that integrate with Pardot. To top it all off, the design is simple and user friendly, while allowing for customization for power users. Finding FeedOtter has helped us consolidate systems, saving both time and money while providing an even better customer experience."

Choose when FeedOtter creates and schedules email

Flexible sending patterns make FeedOtter work for any use-case.  When creating a blog digest you will select “Digest” and configure the following options:
  • The number of posts to appear in each digest
  • The sending interval (month, week, day, hour, minute)
  • Whether to send on weekend or limit sending to business days only
  • Your timezone

Enter your RSS feed url

Content for your Pardot blog digest comes from an RSS feed.  This is a very common, structured format for blog data.  Most CMS systems including WordPress have these feeds by default.  In the Plus and Advanced pricing tiers you can add multiple RSS feeds to create sections in your blog digest email.

"Super easy and gorgeous emails from RSS. Works seamlessly and, as a not-super-technical user, I was able to set up weekly RSS feed with Pardot. It took under an hour. Been easy to do things like modify templates and I like that I can directly edit stuff in HTML."

Test and Send

You can send yourself a proof email at anytime during the creation process by pressing the PROOF button located in the blog digest editing interface. This is also a great way to test your new blog digest using a tool like Litmus. A note about FeedOtter magic; While it may not be obvious FeedOtter is doing lots of other things behind the scenes.  Here are some details commonly asked by Pardot blog digest clients:

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.

UTM Tracking:

It’s easy to add UTM codes to your Pardot blog digest emails 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.

Pardot Merge Tokens

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