Web developers, owners, and managers are all starting to see the benefits of using RSS feeds as a way to market their sites. While there are still a lot of users who are unfamiliar with the process of using RSS feeders themselves, there is a large audience out there of people who are hooked to their reader for daily updates from their favorite blogs and news sites. Reaching this audience can provide you with a way to establish a connection with your customers that will be vital for keeping them around with your business. Here is a look at what you could do with RSS feeders to market your business and help it reach the top.
One of the biggest benefits of using RSS feeds to reach your clients is that you can maintain the interest people have in your site. By providing them with new content to look over on a regular basis, you can encourage them to keep coming back for more. This is how word of mouth spreads as people begin to benefit from whatever it is you have posted on your site. This also allows you to establish a sense of authority and trust with your users, which inevitably will make them more loyal to you in the end.
RSS feeds are great in the sense that they do not require any censorship on the publisher’s part. While you may need to be careful with what you say in newsletters and other direct forms of communication with your site users, you do not have to do anything of the kind with an RSS feed. The user can choose to filter out what he or she does and does not want to see. Thus it is no longer your burden to follow strict guidelines about something.
Readers love RSS feeds because it gives them quick access to information from their favorite sites so they can see what they want to read in a day. By providing them with an RSS feed to your site, you automatically assist their need for a convenient source of information. You can gain a lot more views this way in some cases than you can by just posting something up and hoping people find it. Setting up a feed for your site is not hard at all, and it could be highly beneficial to you in the end.
