When starting your business, you want customers to know what you have to offer, why they’d want your products, and how to purchase them. Mailchimp’s website feature, simple to use website builder, and marketing and reporting tools help you share your business with the world while staying in touch with your audience.
In this article, you'll learn how websites work in Mailchimp, and how you can use them to promote your products, grow your audience, and sell more stuff.
How websites work in Mailchimp
In Mailchimp, your website lives separately from your marketing campaigns. To get started, click the Create dropdown menu then choose the Website option to access our website builder. Here you can design and configure your website pages. It works a lot like our email designer, so you have control over your layout and can add or remove content blocks to individual pages as needed.
How to use your website
Building a website on a Mailchimp domain is completely free, so you can start designing the look and feel of your business online from day one. Here are some ideas on how you can use your website to promote your business or project and grow your audience.
Advertise your website with marketing campaigns
Promote your website with Mailchimp campaigns to target contacts in all phases of your marketing plan. You can create an ad with a call-to-action button linked to your homepage to increase traffic and interest.
Share on social media
Post to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to drive traffic to your website without ever leaving your Mailchimp account using a social post, or copy your website URL and share it on any social network.
Connect your domain to your website
You can connect your website on Mailchimp with a domain you already own outside of our app, or you can purchase a domain to host with us. You can use that same domain to send marketing email to your users.
