New Course: MailChimp

You guys!! This is so crazy. I just made a course here on Food Blogger Pro. Whattt!!!

I know you all are used to Bjork’s slow, steady, and confident voice as he guides you through the terrifying and confusing world that is starting a food blog, and Lindsay’s teacher-esque tone as she helps you find your ground with social media and photography.

So if you’re totally weirded out by listening to me talk during this course – so am I! But I really enjoyed making this course, and I’m really excited to share it with you. I handled all of the MailChimp setup stuff for Food Blogger Pro when we moved over to MailChimp a few months ago and I use it for my own blog as well, so I’ve been through this process a few times.

Ok, so enough of that. What the heck is this course all about? Well, let me tell you:

Finally! This course is definitely long overdue. We’ve helped so many members out on the forum with their MailChimp questions, but I know how valuable these courses are as compared to asking questions one-at-a-time on the forum.

For this course, I started from the bottom. First, we make an account. Then, we create a list, add some subscribers to that list, and add a signup form to our blog.

Then I walk you through creating your first RSS campaign, which is really exciting! I finish up with a tour of the other MailChimp features, like templates and reports, and end with a video on how to get people to sign up for your mailing list, which I really recommend watching.

So if you have a moment, head on over and check it out. I hope you love it!
