A Pardot RSS email will also ensure your content is always sent on-time, correctly, with perfect reporting via Pardot campaign reports and Google Analytics UTM campaigns.

How Does it Work?

We have made sending RSS email from Pardot quick and easy. Here is how a typical Pardot RSS email campaign is setup.

If you already have a FeedOtter account, login.  If not, you can sign-up for a free trial account and follow along with this guide.

Select a sending schedule

Configure when you want FeedOtter to send your Pardot RSS email including:

  • When there is new RSS content
  • At a designated date/time
  • Business days only
  • Every other week/month

FeedOtter supports every possibility.


Enter your RSS feed URL

FeedOtter uses the web-standard RSS feed XML format to pull in data from your website and compose Pardot emails.

WordPress, Shopify, Magneto, Drupal, Joomla and all top CMS products generate RSS feeds for content by default or with the help of an easy to install plugin. Handy RSS Tools:

Most Pardot users only automate content from a single RSS feed. If you would like to combine or display content from multiple RSS feeds in a single email FeedOtter can handle that too. With our multiple feed feature you can:

  • 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

Choose a template or bring your own

Every FeedOtter user gains access to a growing library of responsive, mobile-friendly RSS email templates.  Whether you want to send a single post, create a blog digest, or newsletter we have a great looking template that can be setup in minutes.

If you have email creation resources on your team you can email your HTML template file and our team will add it to your account at no charge.

Adding rss email recipient lists for Pardot

Select your audience

Our Pardot integration allows you to quickly select lists and dynamic lists to target the perfect audience.

Selecting a Pardot campaign for your emails ensures your reporting over time is perfect.

Reporting and Traffic Gains

Once setup, FeedOtter creates and schedules your RSS email in Pardot according to the rules you setup. Emails are created as “scheduled emails” in Pardot and will appear on your Pardot marketing calendar as if you created them.

Unsubscribes, and open, click, and campaign reporting are all handled by Pardot so your emailing stays in one system.

Extras

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 Pardot 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.

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