Ticking “interests” on profile, and sending emails accordingly

  • tergra


    Hi everyone,

    I thought I’d ask this to the community because you may have strokes of genius about this. I’m a bit lost :
    I want the users to be able to tick “interests” on their profile page, each “interest” matching a blog post category (sustainable development, charity, humanitarian aid, etc.). I also want to be able to send emails to the users weekly or monthly to tell them “Hey look there is this new blog post about sustainable development that may interest you, as you ticked “sustainable development” in your interests”.

    How could I achieve this ?

    Thanks for your time 🙂

    @tergra – I am a novice at this stuff – so others may have better suggestions and certainly abilities – however what I would do to get to your goal kind of..

    make the interests “groups” – these can be easily made as selectable during signup.. and default settings can auto-send them a message when something new is posted to a group..

    if you REALLY need the info to be blog posts.. hmm.. post a link to the blog post in the corresponding group?

    haven’t really tried this kind of setup – but I THINK it would work for what you are describing.. or similar anyhow..



    I would probably suggest looking at email communications/newsletters like mail chimp plugin or similar since they may have tracking features. The basics is RSS feeds incorporated in emails should accomplish this in plugin you find.
