MailChimp today announced the launch of a multi-million dollar branding campaign intended to increase awareness of the MailChimp email marketing service among potential subscribers. The campaign is targeted at MailChimp’s traditional subscriber, the power user who loves innovation.
”Our growth over the last few years has benefited greatly from personal recommendations,“ commented Ben Chestnut, CEO and co-Founder. ”Now that we are approaching the 1 million subscriber count, we felt it was appropriate to broaden our reach with a branding campaign. As usual this campaign is done MailChimp style.“
The campaign features the MailChimp logo on a simple red background and the creative is being displayed on all of the top tech blogs around the world such as TechCrunch, Mashable, Read Write Web, All Things D, GigaOm, VentureBeat, and The NextWeb.
MailChimp has focused on creating the best email marketing application in the industry with ground breaking technology innovations such as automated A/B testing (patent pending), Google Analytics API integration, and Timewarp (automatically send a campaign in a recipient’s local time zone). MailChimp was the first major email service provider to introduce Auto Tweeting (2009) and to integrate the Facebook Like feature into emails (2010).
MailChimp supports more than 3 million subscribers worldwide, sending 3 billion emails per month. The MailChimp platform improves the user experience by providing seamless, yet powerful email marketing and publishing features that are easy and affordable enough for a small business to get started, but powerful enough for a large company looking for an enterprise level solution.

MailChimp integrates with many third party applications including Facebook, Twitter, Eventbrite, SurveyGizmo, Salesforce, WordPress, Magento, Joomla, Drupal and Google Analytics. And best of all, prices start at free.
