Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
Social media campaigns are constantly increasing in popularity, but people often forget about the effectiveness of a good ol’ email campaign. After all, you’re reaching customers right in their inboxes. But how do you make your campaign appealing with limited resources if you have no design or programming knowledge? That’s where MailChimp comes in. Using this tool, you can manage large lists of contacts and send them your newsletters or campaign emails. You can also use MailChimp’s design templates (which are also customizable) to give your emails a little more flair. So there’s no more excuse for boring emails!
