I would like to welcome those who are visiting for the first time and thank the ones who follow this site. If you remember from a few months ago, I wrote an article on Email Marketing, talking about the importance of establishing an email marketing presence. Email isn’t going away and it’s not dying anytime soon.
Emailing marketing is probably the most inexpensive marketing that you can do and when I say inexpensive, I mean free. It’s not going to cost you anything to get on this banwagon. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not making use of this.
Mailchimp was started as a side project in 2001 by Mark Armstrong, Ben Chestnut, and Dan Kurzius that rapidly grew a following. This project went from the side burner to main industry, providing options to small business, that before was only available to big businesses. Giving people with bootstrap budgets the ability to start email marketing.
I’ve personally been using this product for 2 months and have been fully satisfied, making use of its email management system to keep track of all my followers that want to keep in touch. Getting started was a simple as 1-2-3.
All you need to get started is a physical address, organization name and details, and website (if you don’t have a company page, you can enter a Facebook or Twitter page, or a personal page or blog). If you have been following me along with my website, you should already have a personal page or blog going. You’ll also have the opportunity to upload a profile photo and to subscribe to MailChimp’s series of “Getting Started” emails if you wish.
