MailOptin will automatically send the new post newsletter to your ConvertKit email subscribers on your behalf for every new post you publish.

Enter a title and select as automation type, New Post Notification.

Here’s how to use your own custom email template.

You can decide to send the newsletters immediately after post by checking “Send immediately” or schedule it to be sent minutes, hours or days after publication.
