MailChimp is a smart email marketing tool for start-ups and small businesses that want to enhance their presence and effectively reach their clients and prospective customers. 

It is a winning platform that combines valuable price, unbeatable user-friendly features, and reliability.

It offers business-enhancing analytical features to help you plan and succeed in your email and social marketing campaigns.

MailChimp has been designed with non-tech-savvy people in mind. It is easy-to-use, flexible and has a simple design so that anyone can send out professional-looking emails and social campaigns.

 

Here are the 3 main advantages of using MailChimp:

 

1. Forever Free

If you have up to 2,000 email subscribers, MailChimp offers a basic free plan. The free option is perfect for newcomers in their niche that are just starting their email marketing journey. You can add up to 2,000 contacts on your list, and you can send up to 12,000 emails for free a month! 

 

2. Feature-rich 

MailChimp is packed with useful features to make your life easier. Some of our favourite features include:

 

  • Landing Pages

In MailChimp, landing pages live alongside other campaign types. Landing pages are free to all MailChimp users, so you can build as many as you need. They are different from other pages on your site because they focus on specific, short-term goals so that you can get the results you want. Landing pages can boost your credibility and reinforce your brand.
