Skills Workshop – Mailchimp & Email Marketing Stage 2 (Mondays)

When: On 26/11/2018 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm


A practical hands-on, small group workshop in Tunbridge Wells covering the basics of using Mailchimp for your business by sitting down together with our laptops and going through it “live” using your own Mailchimp account.  The workshop will last about 4 hours including tea breaks and is limited to no more than 4 people so that you get the time and attention you need.

You’ll take away instructions to refer back to, which you can add to with your own notes to remind yourself of how to tailor things to suit your own business. I’ll also be happy to answer any queries and give you a hand if you get stuck once you do things on your own after the workshop.

The workshop will be held in Tunbridge Wells – address will be provided after booking.

Stage 2 will cover the following:

  • Review where you got to after Stage 1 with troubleshooting if necessary
  • Reviewing your mailing list formats
  • Reporting and how to use it to make your campaigns more successful

  • Automation and how to get Mailchimp to send emails automatically for you based on specific criteria
