Creative Entrepreneurship, DIY + Education

use mail chimp's free plan to automatically deliver an to in incentive - a video lesson ! | The merriweather council blog

By now you know, you should have a mailing list. And you also might know that offering a freebie or incentive of some kind is a great way to persuade people to join your mailing list. This is a win win situation because you get a contact on your list, and they get something free!

Many people are using Mailchimp to manage their mailing list, but wonder how can they auto deliver an opt in freebie without  upgrading to the paid version of Mailchimp which includes the automation feature? Well I am going to show you exactly how.

This video will show you exactly:

1- how to create an opt in freebie using Canva! Canva is a free service, so, bonus! (In this case, the freebie is a coupon, which isn’t my favorite example but it serves the purpose for this demo.)

2- how to get Mailchimp to auto deliver this freebie to your subscribers upon confirmation of subscription to your list.

Again, this is all on the FREE version of Mailchimp – no paid upgrade required. Check the video out now and let me know what you think.
