MailChimp Overview

MailChimp allows you to keep in contact with your customers using newsletter and special offer campaigns, making it a great platform for publishing content and keeping in touch. To make things even better, MailChimp is free for those with mailing lists of less than 2,000 contacts. Ideal for small businesses.

Course Description

This training course is aimed at those who want to learn how to run email campaigns through MailChimp. The course starts with setting up your own Mailchimp account and the requirements for running campaigns that will not get you blacklisted. As part of this, we look at the various methods for creating subscriber lists and good practises within the industry.

The course then looks at creating a number of reusable custom email templates that can be used within your campaigns. We look at designing your own newsletter and special offer templates that can be used later when required. Building these initial templates will make life easier later on when you want to focus on your email content.

We then look at setting up email campaigns and discuss the various options available within MailChimp. The course looks at adding and customising your own content (text, images, video, etc) into your own custom email templates. A part of this process requires using MailChimp’s merge tags to individualise each email - an extremely powerful feature.

The course covers email testing within Mailchimp using the various preview modes, as well as inbox testing using Litmus. Finally, once the emails have been sent, we look at the reports available for tracking user open statistics and devices types.
