Welcome to the ultimate guide to free email marketing from MailChimp!
Today, we’re going to share a walkthrough tutorial on how to get a free email marketing subscription from MailChimp – one of our favorite online email marketing tools for small local businesses in Garrett County, Maryland and Deep Creek Lake. Let’s get started!
1 – Go to mailchimp.com to register for a free email marketing account.
2 – Register for a free email marketing account with your business email address and create a username that you will be able to easily remember.
3 – Click the activate account button in the email sent by MailChimp. Note, this may take a few minutes to arrive.
4 – Confirm you’re human. Note, this may only appear if you are on a shared connection.
5 – Select your preferred pricing tier – we often start with free, but many accounts upgrade after the first 6 months to a year if their marketing strategies are effective.
6 – Fill out the remaining information fields in the guided wizard. (See multiple screenshots below.)
7 – Sign-up for MailChimp’s email newsletters to get tips and tricks. We love these emails, as they often contain handy tips, but these are optional emails.
8 – You’re finished! For most folks, this process takes only about 10 minutes. Pretty easy right?
Now, you’ll want to set-up opt-in forms on your website, Facebook and other social media sites, and collect emails at in-person locations.
