MailChimp Offers Free Email Marketing/Lists


I’m trying a new service from a site called MailChimp, that allows free email marketing and list organization to basic users. MailChimp makes it easy to send out mass newsletters and track statistics, as well as create customized forms for your website and emails.

The website is very user friendly, and email campaigns are easy to set up.  The MailChimp blog offers you a wealth of information on getting started – with topics ranging from design to switching to HTML emails.  As with most new web companies, you can find MailChimp on Facebook and Twitter.

The free plan allows for 100 subscribers and 6 monthly newsletters.  If your campaign takes off, you can either pay $0.5  per email as you go or purchase a monthly plan.  MailChimp has lots of well-known customers, from Mozilla to Canon to the University of North Carolina.

I will be trying out this service for a while to send (bi?)weekly newsletters, with tech news links, blog post updates, and podcast links.  If you’d like to sign up to get the newsletter, use the form on the sidebar to register.
