How to create a campaign in MailChimp

If you’ve never used MailChimp before, it may seem a little daunting, but really, once you see it done, it will seem so much less intimidating! So I’ve created a couple short videos that walk you through creating an email newsletter, start to finish, in less than 20 minutes.

These videos assume that you’ve created your MailChimp account, and set up or imported your mailing list. And also that you’ve written the text for your newsletter and prepared your images.

The first video is about 10 minutes long and walks you through how to set up the campaign and create a basic newsletter. (The time limit I refer to at the end of the video has nothing to do with MailChimp; it was just the time limit for the video app I was using.)

The second video is about 6 minutes long, and shows how to add images, how to add your links to the social media icons, and how to send the campaign immediately, OR schedule it to send at a future date or time.
