When a business decides to use Mailchimp for email list management, they are stepping into a world of new information and automation, so let's examine what you can expect from using Mailchimp.
Mailchimp does most of the work during the process of gaining subscribers to mailing lists, but first, the business has to take the necessary steps to let Mailchimp do its work. The first step to creating a signup form is to first create a list. By clicking the word:List” on the navigation bar, and then clicking “create new list”, and naming and saving that list, then you’re ready to create a signup form.
First, when looking at the overview of the list, click the dropdown menu of the list to the right and click “signup forms” and choose the type of signup form you’d like to make. From here, all that is needed is sense of what needs to go on the form and how it should look.
