What is follow.it?

The tool follow.it notifies automatically your followers when you publish a new post in your blog. This way, they get alerted about your new articles, click on the notification, and come back to your site easily.

The process is fully automatic (unlike a regular newsletter), so you don’t have any hassle: just keep focusing on producing great content, and follow.it will make sure people come back. 

While the newsletter feature is the most heavily used aspect of follow.it, the tool can do much more. For example, go to Pixelnatures’s feed on follow.it and click on “Follow”.

You’ll see that followers have many more options than just subscribing to a newsletter.
