Integrating with MailChimp
This article shows how to integrate the email marketing service MailChimp with your course.
MailChimp is a widely-used email marketing tool that allows you to build and manage large email lists. Although Miestro already allows you to send various emails to your students, you may still want to use MailChimp for reasons such as:
- Setting up automatic emails
- Making sure students who sign up for your course are added to your email list
- Monitoring and tracking email performance
MailChimp has both free and paid plans. The free plan allows you to send up to 12,000 emails per month to up to 2,000 subscribers. You can learn more about how to use MailChimp by visiting their website.
