What’s inside:

An introduction to MailChimp for former Constant Contact* users. Topics include:

  • Managing your account
  • Building your list
  • Creating campaigns
  • Viewing your reports

Welcome to MailChimp. Getting started is easy, and this guide will help you make the transition in a few simple steps. We'll cover the basics of building a list, creating beautiful campaigns, and viewing your reports in MailChimp. We'll also highlight a few of the notable variations in terminology and workflow that you'll encounter as you make the switch from Constant Contact to MailChimp.


When you send a campaign in MailChimp, unsubscribed or bounced email addresses are automatically removed from your list. Constant Contact also removes unsubscribed addresses from your list, but it manages bounces in a slightly different manner. As a result, you will need to be sure to filter out the bounced addresses before importing your Constant Contact list into MailChimp.
