Good overall class on how to start with email marketing, covers broad range of topics and gives you a good starting point. I suggest you follow up with other mailchimp courses, which go to greater detail (design, copy)
It´s a good introduction to email marketing. Kind of marketing of their own service though but it´s ok.
I have heard of Mailchimp before, but did not understand exactly what the email service did. This was a great introduction to Email Marketing Services. Thanks!
