Mailchimp 101

If you have ever worked for a client that wanted a newsletter, chances are you have used Aweber or Mailchimp.

Mailchimp is free, but that doesn’t mean that it is the best just because you don’ t have to pay for it.

Me being as cheap as I am though, free is my priority.

Mailchimp offers flexibility, you can track your campaign, upload a list of clients from AOL (Who uses that?) Yahoo, Gmail, and every other cranny. Then you simply add them tot eh campaign and Viols! The mail is sent out replete with a fist of fury insignia on the home opage.

You can track and see if clients are actually looking at your content, or if they are more interested in getting back to their workday. Plus you can scrutinize over the exact people who are opting to get delisted from your deals.

I alos began to notice parallel creations of my same deals going up across the net with past colleagues. Interesting, and still flattering. Even if all of the people do not get into what you are offering you are still out there in everyone’s face and you need to be doing that!

Remember you can sign up for a free account, and the first thing you want to do is create a list of contacts. Gather all of the names of past clients and put them in here. Even the ones you don’t want to have contac twith.

Then send it off. Got to love Mailchimp.
