Join Virginia O'Connor for an in-depth discussion in this video Importing subscribers into a list, part of Learning MailChimp.
- Now that you have defined your Wisdom Pet's…newsletter list, it's time to add some names…and email addresses.…To get new subscribers, you have a few options.…You can add a new subscriber manually…if you have their permission, like if they gave you…their email at a trade show, for example.…And we'll show you that option in just a minute.…You can create a signup form and put that form…on your website or Facebook page for new subscribers…to sign up, and we'll do this in another video.…You can import a list of subscribers if they have…already opted in to receive emails from you,…and this is what we're going to show you now.…
To import a list of subscribers, you can import…from a comma separated values file,…you can copy and paste from Excel,…and you can also directly import…from a MailChimp integrated application.…It's important to understand that MailChimp will only…import your list if it believes it's safe.…If it can't verify that the list is safe,…the import will stop.…After you start sending emails, your list could be blocked…
And if you find your subscriber list grows beyond the 2,000-address limit imposed in the free app, check out the tutorials where Virginia shows you how to upgrade to the paid version of MailChimp, which contains one of its most useful features: autoresponders.
