It’s no secret that Feedburner is going away pretty soon, even if it doesn’t, Feedburner is very outdated. What would happen if you lose all your Feedburner subscribers? or when they integrate it into Blogger Blogspot only? Don’t wait for a Google “Spring Cleaning” announcement, you should move to another alternative. Unfortunately, there are no free services unless you have a very small subscriber base.
Having said that, most of the ‘complete list’ found online consist of AWeber or MailChimps. They are not newsletter services like FeedBurner, they are email marketing tools. FeedBurner is a RSS newsletter feed, below is the real complete list of FeedBurner alternatives. Some do offer free services with limited features, they are compatible with WordPress.
↓ 01 – Jetpack Subscriptions [ The Best ]
Subscriptions require no special magic to activate. Once you activate Jetpack on your site, Subscriptions will be activated by default. Once Subscriptions are visible on your site, visitors can choose to subscribe to new posts, and/or to subscribe to new comments on a post they’ve commented on so they can stay involved in the conversation.
↓ 02 – follow.it
The service is FREE on the basic plan, no matter how many followers you have. For followers it’s always free. Readers want new, interesting content. And publishers want readers. Today, however, readers frequently miss out because they don’t get alerted when relevant content got published – and publishers get less readers.
Common alert tools like newsletters, social media, RSS etc., all have major drawbacks – ranging from subscribers’ reluctance to subscribe (fear of spam) to a low chance of seeing the updates even if they did subscribe.
Imagine a perfect tool to follow websites: quick and easy following & unfollowing, no fear of spam, tailoring of feeds to one’s needs, wide choice of output channels, etc. – in short: no risk of missing out on important information, but without information overload. That’s what follow.it is all about. And what’s good for readers is good for publishers too, as they get many more followers and recurring readers.
