How/Why you should Set-up your RSS feed for Customers

RSS feeds can be powerful. Imagine every one of your customers following your feed and getting alerted every time you feature a new product or start a promotion. RSS feed technology is being used more often than you think. The key is to promote your feed to your audience. Provide instructions so they can follow you. Using your social media channels is one good way to do this; another is to advertise on your website. In the example below you can see how Rakuten provided instructions on their website to make it easy for their customer-base to follow their RSS feed:
