I have added custom Email subject, added my Blog Logo and customize the Email title and Font. Altogether that made my email unique and has given different looks.

Step 1 Please visit http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/myfeeds and enter into your feed (in case of multiple sites included under one feedburner account).

Step 2 Now go to Publicize tab from Feedburner dashboard and select Email Subscriptions from left vertical menu. Generally Email Subscriptions offer feed updates via email.

Step 3 Under Email Subscriptions more options will expend. Now let me explain one by one.

  • Subscription Management- Here you will get the Feedburner email subscription form code.  This can be used in your Blog directly. In addition you can see all subscriber information such as, their email address, subscription status active or Unverified. If you wish to transfer all your email subscriber email address to another third-party email newsletter service provider then Export the CSV file and upload it in other service provider. For example, if you wish to use Mailchimp but formerly using Feedburner then you can export the CSV file from Feedburner and upload it in Mailchimp.

  • Communication Preferences –This feature will enable Feedburner users to add the email where they will receive notification. You can change it any time. But for branding our Email we will change the Confirmation Email body. There you will find system default email, and after subscribing to your Blog feed this email will automatically delivered to subscriber’s email address for confirmation. So simply change it with your own words to make it meaningful.
