A few weeks ago, I was talking with another team member about email and how it works for them. My colleague also had questions about email marketing. She has worked as an email marketer for at least a decade, but hadn’t used the same platform all that time. Some of the tools have changed since she started, and she was wondering where she could find the tools she needed.
My colleague and I had a discussion about what tools she should look into. She mentioned that she had recently taken a look at MailChimp and that it looked like a great tool. I agreed that it was a great tool, but I could tell she was not really sure she wanted to use it.
One of the first things I looked at was my email list. I have a pretty healthy email list. I have around 3050 subscribers and I am on all of my platforms at least once a day. I have an email list on several platforms, but for this example, we are going to use only the ones I am using.
I was looking at my emails and I realized that my list was getting bigger and bigger. I am not sure how many of my current subscribers are reading this blog, but I do know that I am receiving an average of about 20 emails a day, and I receive at least one new email a day myself.
So, I wanted to know how my email list was growing. I decided to look at my list and see if I had any new subscribers. Here was the result:
At the bottom of the email, I clicked on the link and my email was sent to a random list of subscribers. I checked my list, but there were none. I checked my other platforms, and there were no new subscribers added to them.
I was a little bit confused. This was not what I thought would happen when I signed up for email marketing. I had looked at some of the tools, and they had a feature to add subscribers to certain lists. I had even used them in the past, but I had always removed myself from the lists.
I decided to give it one more look and I found that when I added the email to my list, I lost the ability to remove it. I thought this was a little strange, but I figured it was something I would have to fix on my end.
So I searched online and found a list of email subscribers that had unsubscribed. I downloaded their information and I was able to remove my name from that list.
I was a little bit frustrated with this list because it was getting bigger and bigger. I would have to keep adding subscribers to this list and I would never get rid of these people. I decided to see if I could find a different list.
I searched the internet, looking for email subscription lists that I could use that I had never been on before. I found a few lists that I had never even heard of. I downloaded the list and I was ready to set it up.
To start, I had to enter my name and email address, and I had to add an email provider to my list. I decided to use my gmail account. I was going to add my business email account that I currently use for my blog.
I decided to use a free email marketing service like MailChimp. I had no idea if I was using the right tool for my needs, so I decided to try it out.
I had a few questions about it. I decided to look at their website to find out more information. Here was what I found:
The first question I had was about how this tool worked. I decided to read it because I wanted to make sure I was reading it correctly. On the homepage, it says that MailChimp is a free email marketing platform.
I decided that I was going to use this service because I was not sure if I was going to pay for a service like this or not. I decided to check out the website and this is what I found:
I decided I was going to use this service because it looked like it might be the best one out there. I found some reviews on the website, and it looked like it was pretty good.
I decided to download the free trial and I went through the steps to create my account. I filled in my name and email address, and then I signed up for a trial account. I signed into my website and was asked for my name and password.
I signed into my email account and I was able to see my email list. I had to pick a list name and I decided to pick a list I had never used before, to start. I had to enter my name, email address, and then I had to click on the link that said “Create a free list”.
I signed into my email account, and I was given the option to create a list. I decided to create a list for my blog. I had never added an email list to my blog before, and I wanted to make sure I did everything correctly.
I had to input my full name and email address. I had to click on the link that said “Continue as guest” and then enter my password.
A quick recap
I decided to add my email list a few months ago, and I have been adding subscribers to my list. I decided to look into my list to see if I had any new subscribers. I found that I had lost the ability to remove subscribers from my list.
I decided I needed to find another tool for my list as I did not want to lose my subscribers. I looked for a list of subscribers I had never been on. I downloaded their information and I was able to remove my name from that list.
