Create a website in Mailchimp to share your business with the world and stay in touch with your audience. We'll help you design your web pages, publish your website to a domain, track your website's performance, and everything else you need to get online.
In this article, you’ll learn how to create a website in Mailchimp.
Enter the name of your website and click Next to choose an audience.
Use the drop-down menu to choose an audience and click Edit My Site.
If you have more than one audience, you'll first need to choose the one you want to associate with your website.
This will take you to the website builder, where you can create new web pages, set your website's styles, or edit your homepage.
When you set up your website, you can apply the same colors, fonts, and button style to every page you create. This helps you streamline your site creation process and maintain a consistent brand identity.
To define color, font, and button styles for your website, follow these steps.
In the Manage Site menu, click Styles.
Click the Palette drop-down to choose the colors for your site. Pick from one of the predesigned color palettes, or select Create New to make your own palette.
If you want to continue with a predesigned palette, skip to step 10.
Type in the name of your new palette.
Click a color swatch to use the color picker.
You can click colors within the color picker, or enter values in the HEX or RGB fields to save a color to the palette.
After you select colors for all 5 swatches, click Save Palette.
Click Edit to change how to apply the colors to your pages.
Click Default Color Scheme.
Click each color scheme to preview how those colors will look on your web pages and select the one you like best.
Click Edit Palette and then Styles to go back to the Styles menu.
In the Theme section, click the arrow icons to apply different font and button styles.
In the website preview, you'll see the heading and paragraph fonts change based on your selections.
If you want to make changes to the theme, click Edit. Here, you can choose different Font pairs, or adjust the Size and Spacing of the text.
Excellent! You’ve set the basic look and feel of your website. The styles you chose will apply to each new page you create.
Use the editor to add sections, images, and text. Share your story, contact information, a product for purchase, and anything else you want your visitors to know about.
In this section, we'll show you how to edit or add content to your website in Mailchimp.
Access the web page editor
To access the web page editor, follow these steps.
On your website dashboard, click Edit Site.
Hover over the page you want to work with and click Edit Page.
Add and edit sections
Sections allow you to organize and design your web page quickly. Choose the layout of text, images, and buttons, as well as other elements like signup forms, navigation bars, and your web page footer.
To add a section, follow these steps.
Hover your cursor over the plus (+) icon where you’d like the new section to go.
Click Add Section.
In the Add Section menu of the sections panel, choose a section type.
Choose a layout for your new section.
Nice work! You’ve added a new section to your page design and can now customize it with your own content.
If you need to make changes, hover over the section to access the editing toolbar. Here, you can click the icons to delete a section, move a section, choose a different layout, or make style edits.
Click the Rounded Corners icon and type in a number between 1 and 300 to adjust the shape of your image.
Undo and redo changes
When you’re designing your website, you might accidentally remove something you've written or made other changes you want to revert. With the undo and redo buttons, you can recover the previous versions of your page.
To undo a change, click the Undo icon.
To redo a change, click the Redo icon.
Undo and redo buttons only work within the same editing session. If you close your window, or navigate away from the editor, previous versions of your web page will no longer be available.
Preview and exit
Good work! Once you're done adding content to your website, click Preview to see how it looks or click Done to go back to the Manage Site page.
On the Manage Site page, click Finish Later to return to your website dashboard.
If you want to change the name of your website or the domain it’s associated with, you can update those details through your website dashboard. If you prefer to use a different domain than the options available, you can purchase or connect a domain instead.
To edit your website domain and title, follow these steps.
Check the box to accept the additional terms and click Save to confirm.
Great work! Next, we’ll go over the settings for your individual web pages.
Edit page settings
Each page that you add to your website has individual settings that control how it displays on your site’s navigation bar, in web browsers, in search results, and in social share posts. You can also change each page’s URL path.
After you’ve edited your domain, styles, content, tracking, and other settings, you’ll be ready to share your website with the world. Before you publish, we recommend you preview how it will appear on desktop and mobile.
To preview and publish your website, follow these steps.
On your website dashboard, mouse over the image of your home page and click Preview Site to review your content as it will appear live.
Click the X icon in the top right corner of the window to leave the preview.
When you’re ready, click the Edit Site drop-down button and choose Publish.
In the pop-up, review our additional terms, then click Accept Terms & Publish to confirm.
You’ve done it! Your website is live at the URL on your dashboard. You can unpublish your website later if you need to. Check out Manage Your Website in Mailchimp for more information on the unpublish process.
