I know, this isn't the first time you've heard this. BUT! If you're reading this today, and you still haven't started a list, gather around, because we're going to get you set-up in about 3.5 minutes. ✨

Welcome to the ultimate guide to free email marketing from MailChimp!

Today, I’m going to share a walkthrough tutorial on how to get a free email marketing subscription from MailChimp – one of my favorite online email marketing tools for small local businesses in Garrett County, Maryland and Deep Creek Lake, and in Morgantown, West Virginia. Let’s get started!

*Note, the MailChimp design team is πŸ’« amazing πŸ’« and frequently tries cutting edge designs in the wild. Your experience may vary slightly from the screen captures, but the content and steps are just as easy. 😎

1 – Go to mailchimp.com to register for a free email marketing account.

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?

What’s next?

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.

Don't forget to upgrade once you've tracked some mileage from MailChimp. It's rad to support companies that help folks get early traction and utilize their tools for free while you're building an audience.
