MailChimp novice stuck at the starting line

by ConservThis 4 replies
I just signed up for MailChimp and tried to create my first campaign. I entered the name TEST and said I wanted to create a Regular campaign. MailChimp then asked me to select the recipients and I chose a segment of my mail list that had one email address. At that point, I thought MailChimp was supposed to display a NEXT button for me to click, however, none appeared even though it displayed the segment I created. What am I doing wrong and how can I correct it?

    The next and back buttons in mailchimp are at the very bottom of the page, far right and left if I remember correctly. I too very often find myself looking for the buttons until I remember to scroll down.

  • If you have any plans of doing affiliate promotions in the future stay away from Mailchimp .They will block your account as they do not allow affiliate promotions .

    Having said that if you only plan to promote your product/services then Mailchimp is okay.

      This information was helpful, thanks! I am having a similar problem creating an email that won't be rejected. I am promoting an affiliate product, but it's masked to look like it's free.

    Mailchimp also forces double optin as far as my girlfriend said. This kills optin rates because some people are lazy and do not want the extra step. I use sendlane but I am looking to switch to getresponse because the backroom is disorganized in send lane.
