Automate Push Notifications With RSS Feeds

Automate Push Notifications With RSS Feeds

We always aim to make your life as a content publisher easier, while allowing you to reach your audience through new channels. Aside from the automation provided by our WordPress plugin, we are happy to have launched a new feature: sending push notifications from RSS Feeds.

What does that mean for you?

RSS Feeds are most of the times automatically generated by the content management platform you are using. Every time you publish a new article, the RSS feed is updated. Since RSS is a standard, easy to read format, Push Monkey reads the feed and checks for new articles. Once a new article is found, a push notification is fired to all your readers that have subscriber to receive push notifications from your website.

How to automatically send push notifications from your RSS feed with Push Monkey?

Once you sign up, either with a FREE account or paid plan, please go to your Dashboard. Now click on the Manage Websites tab.

If you do not have a website added, please go ahead and fill in the form from the middle column.

Your websites appear on the left column. There you can find a new button: “Add RSS Feed“. Click on it and a dialog with an input field will appear. Paste the URL of your RSS Feed in the input field.

See below a screenshot of the said dialog:

Once the Feed URL is saved, you can see it in the left column under the name of your website.

That’s is all. From this point onward, all the articles you publish and appear on your RSS feed will automatically send push notifications to your readers that use Firefox, Chrome or Safari, on Android or desktops.
