Great class if you're just learning what email marketing entails and how to use MailChimp!

It's cute good to someone who's never done email marketing before. Make sure you write notes (in word or on paper - it doesn't matter). You'll remember more stuff. that way. Once you've finished - go practice. If you are not going to use the info in here in the next 2 weeks - you might as well not be listening to this course at all. so make sure you go and send a couple of emails ASAP. Nice job, skillshare :)
Lots of good info. I am going to have to watch this a couple of times!
