I remember when I learned how to use MailChimp. It was 11’o’clock at night and my eyes were hanging out of my head. I was probably swearing in the half-light trying not to wake anyone with my frustration.
I know how confusing and tricky it can be so once I nailed it I started teaching other people what I know through my YouTube channel with how-to videos.
A lot of people have told me how helpful these are, how easy I make it with my explanations and my unique sense of humor. What beautiful compliments!
I thought I’d create a hub for a bunch of the MailChimp videos to make it easy for people to work through them in order.
So here goes:
(PLEASE NOTE: a number of these videos are older so my directions aren’t as aplicable because MailChimp have changed the names and placement of things – however the overarching principles still apply.
Aso a number of the features of the free plan have changed so you may not be able to perform these functions on the free account anymore.
I am delivering a Beta version of my MailChimp Group Mentoring March 31-April 30 2021. If you would like support with your MialChimp you might consider joining us there. MORE INFO HERE.)
What should you do first?
Make a list!
The new look MailChimp
Things look a little different…
What do all the buttons mean?
Once you’re a little set up – here’s a look around.
Next! Send your first email.
Now it’s time to send an email.
Import your contacts
Maybe you don’t have your people in your list yet…
Create a template for your emails
Don’t recreate the wheel every time.
Another way to make templates
Once you send a really great email, you might want to use that style again.
Edit your social share buttons
If you don’t edit your social share buttons you’ll be sending people to the MailChimp website and Social media
Did you know you can resend to people who didn’t open?
Sometimes people just get busy…
Write your email on Tuesday and send it on Saturday
The marketing statistics seem to indicate emails convert better on weekends…
