Lots of information about how churches can use MailChimp, including:
- Building a list
- Creating a newsletter
- RSS-to-email campaigns
- Social sharing
We’ll cover all the basic features MailChimp offers for churches, and how you can use them effectively. Chances are, your church has been sending newsletters, either physically or digitally, for a long time. Newsletters provide a great way to keep your congregation informed about news, events, schedules and more. You may have close relationships with many of the people that attend your church, but newsletters provide structure, keeping them informed about everything your church is offering in a way that may not otherwise be available.
If you collect email addresses physically at church, you can upload them to MailChimp, too. Here’s how you do it: First, transcribe the content of the cards you collected at church to a program on your computer, like Microsoft Excel. You can include the same interest groups on the cards, and upload them along with the email addresses.
