Setup WordPress New Post Notification To Brevo (Sendinblue) Email List

The New Post Notification email automation feature in MailOptin is an essential tool for email list builders. This tutorial will teach us how to set up new post notifications or email alerts to the Brevo (Sendinblue) list.

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

To get started:

Ensure you’ve connected MailOptin with your SendinBlue account. If you haven’t done that, go ahead and do it before returning to this tutorial.

Ensure the From Name and From Email set in MailOptin matches the sender name and email you have verified in Brevo (Sendinblue).

Click “Email Automations“> Create New.

Enter your “Automation Title” and “Select Automation Type” > “New Post Notification” > Select Template.

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

Creating new email automation

After selecting your template, you will be taken to the email customizer page where you can configure the automation settings, template page, template header, template content, and even send a test email to your email address.

For this process to work without issues, you need to click the “Campaign/Automation Settings” and select “SendinBlue” as your connection.

Then select a specific email list to which the new post newsletters will be sent. You can also decide to send the newsletters immediately after post by checking “Send immediately” or schedule it to be sent minutes, hours, or days after publication.

So that you know, you can create as many automation to be sent to different email lists based on the categories and tags the post belongs to.

The setup is now complete.

If you want to add some personalization to your emails, you can use Brevo placeholders in the automation to add a personal touch to your emails. For example, if you want to add the user’s first name to the subject, you can add this placeholder. {{contact.FIRSTNAME|default:’Friend’}} 

The default value of “Friend” will be used for users who do not have their first name saved in your Brevo list. You can see more placeholder modifications that are available in this article on the Brevo site.

Every time MailOptin sends a new post newsletter to your list, you will see the record or log in Brevo (Sendinblue) as shown in the image below.
