Never want to miss the next best deal on a tool you can’t live without? Below I have 3 very simple to set up options for you to never miss a Struggleville post or video.
Push notifications for your web browser or mobile device. You may of noticed a small pop up box at the top of the first Struggleville page you loaded. This box asked if you would like to be notified whenever we post an amazing tool deal. If you accepted our offer then you are already receiving push notifications on the device you were browsing on. If you clicked no, by accident I am sure, worry not my dear friend you can still accept our offer by CLICKING HERE.
We will use RSS feeds along with the website Feeder.co to send you notifications based on which content you are interested in receiving. You will need to create a free account with Feeder. Once signed up you can install their browser extension (Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari). You can also install their apps (Android, Apple).
Now you will need to add the feeds that you are interested in. The bottom of this post has a full list of feed options for this site and my Youtube channel. Once you find the feeds you want you will open the extension or app and click the plus sign. A window or box will open that will allow you to enter the feed URL, be sure to save before exiting.
Thats it! On the browser extension the icon will have a number by it representing the new number of posts. You will be able to see the title of each post and if you click the link it will take you to the page on this site. Simple!
This option also uses RSS feeds but this time we are going to use the feeds to send us an e-mail anytime a new post is created. To do this we are going to use a website called IFTTT.com. You will have to create a FREE account on the site. Once you have an account CLICK HERE. In the new window click “Turn On”. In the box at the top you will enter a title for this RSS feed. In the box at the bottom you will enter the URL of the RSS feed you want an e-mail for. The bottom of this post has a full list of the RSS feed options. IFTTT will also ask you to connect your e-mail address to the site. If you would like to set up e-mails for multiple feeds you can click the link above again and repeat the process.
Any of the URLs below can be added to your RSS feed reader (or IFTTT) to start receiving notifications.
