I. How to create your MailChimp account
Sign up for a MailChimp account here.
You'll be prompted to fill out your information. MailChimp will then send you a confirmation email with a button leading to a page to fill out the rest of your information.
Once that is done, you will be led to the dashboard.
Click on the navigation link called Lists. A list is where you store your subscribers once they sign up for your newsletter. You can create multiple lists depending on what each group is interested in. For example, if you're blogging about nutrition and yoga, you could have a list for each topic and subscribers will be catered according to their interest.
On the upper right, click on Create a list.
Fill out the fields, remember to check the double opt-in and GDPR which protects your subscribers' privacy. And save.
Now you have a MailChimp account and a list, yay!
I'll be writing a separate blog post covering how to build a template and setup a campaign with MailChimp soon.
