Mailchimp is a valuable outreach gem for any online brand.

Think about this: you spend thousands on social media ads to get new clients. You can also convert your existing contacts into first-time and repeat buyers — while building long-term relationships with them — for free.

Mailchimp solves these problems

You must have experienced at least one of these problems when sending marketing emails to your contacts:

  1. Spending a lot of time sending emails to thousands of contacts one by one
  2. Lack of email performance data about your how your emails are performing — which content is the most interesting, how many people open them, and when they open your emails the most
  3. Scattered data about your contacts including where they come from, what they buy, and their interests
  4. Expensive email costs from sending bulk emails from normal email services e.g Gmail
