Here is a checklist of Mailchimp tips.
What is the primary objective of your email campaigns?
Can you write this down in one sentence?
It is good idea, if possible, to only have one Mailchimp Audience.
This will mean that everything is in one place.
Your stats will improve and it is much easier to find subscribers.
Sometimes, it makes sense to have a separate audience, for example for a different company or country.
Tags can be used to add attributes to a subscriber.
They are private and cannot be seen by the subscriber.
Many enterprises prefer to use Tags on their own, without using Groups.
Spend more time thinking about your campaign Subject line, as this is the gateway to the campaign.
Difficult to understand, unengaging Subject lines = lower opening rates.
Make it interesting, useful and helpful.
Focus on the subscriber’s needs.
Write short sentences, just like this one.
Always look at the campaign report.
Check your Audience’s signup form, as it generates the Preferences centre.
Promote your newsletter
If you are using Mailchimp as a promotional tool, promote your newsletter widely.
Include a signup form within every page of your website.
Use the EepURL (signup form link) within company emails and social media.
