Mailchimp for Small Business Owners: Live Training Sneak Peek

Mailchimp for Small Business Owners: Live Training Sneak Peek

If you’ve been trying to master Mailchimp and are having a tough time,  take a sneak peek at what you’ll learn during TTG’s Step by Step Live Training. These trainings are all virtual events, which means you stay safely socially distant while building your DIY digital marketing skillset.

What You’ll Learn

During Live Trainings, you learn email marketing best practices, including email design, which covers how email marketing messages should look to make a good impression on your customer. We also cover the difference between email marketing campaigns and automations, and explain when and why you’ll want to use each option.

The Secret of Successful Skill Building: Interactive Education

What makes TTG Live Training special and valuable is the fact that participants are expected to arrive with their specific DIY marketing questions and we answer them in session. Hearing other business owners share their challenges and identify points of confusion and having those issues addressed is the most efficient way to gain a robust, real-world understanding of what really involved in using digital marketing tools effectively.

For example, here are three questions we heard during our most recent Mailchimp training, along with a short and sweet synopsis of the answers we gave.

How do I create my account?

It’s super simple to get started with Mailchimp. We actually walk you through it step-by-step in this video:

Can I use the free version or do I need to pay?

Depends on what you’re planning to do. Before you commit to spending money, make sure you can’t accomplish what you need to on the free version. Check out their different plans to see what’s right for your business.

Be aware that you do get what you pay for. Some of Mailchimp’s most robust features aren’t available for free. For example: You can’t create an automated series of messages.

Now that I’m set up and ready to send emails, how do I ask for permission to send emails to my audience?

The use of forms on your website is a good way. Just make sure that you have something like a checkbox that says “By submitting your email, you are agreeing to sign up for our newsletter.”


Still have questions?

Space for our July 13th Mailchimp training session is strictly limited to 20 participants. This training is 75 minutes long and is designed for the beginner to intermediate Mailchimp user.
