Before we get into it, a brief note on Mail Chimp. Our comprehensive guide to mail chimp is about getting into the nitty gritty of setting up Emails, campaign and various integration as well as advanced combinations of tactics to your email campaign, so I’m not going to go in to too much detail on the comparative merits of email providers here. Suffice to say that if you are reading this then you are well aware of the incredible importance of your email list.
That being the case you know that you need something ultra reliable. This is something that Mail Chimp or Aweber can do you for. If you have been using free email newsletters with WordPress or using a Feed burner plugin not only is it likely your emails aren’t great works of art (entirely not your fault) but also you may be running into issues with SPAM and low delivery rates among other things.
If you Google around you will find many studies that indicate using a third-party mailing service will help increase your delivery rate for your emails. Plus, once they are there, Mail Chimp will let you create some really wonderful templates so that your emails look super pretty.
Of course, the main draw back is the cost. The more complex functions like AB testing will involve a monthly subscription.
However, the functions that I am about to show you today come within Mail Chimp’s free services, which remain free up to 2000 subscribers.
Update: Mail Chimp has recently announced that automation will now be included in it’s free plan. This is very exciting news at automation is a feature that many bloggers and small businesses rely on heavily.
So, without further ado, let’s get you signed up.
