How to Design Custom MailChimp Email Templates

Raise your hand if you've been putting off sending emails to your list because the MailChimp email template design is more headache than you can bear right now?

I see you.

Last week I walked you through setting up your MailChimp account, showed you how to start your first list, helped you customize your MailChimp sign-up form, and then showed you how to add all that magical email goodness to your blog.

Creating beautiful MailChimp email templates doesn't have to be confusing or scary. This step-by-step video tutorial shows you exactly how to do it, walking you through the various design tools, showing you how to add HTML, and even how to schedule & send your emails.

Now it's time to stop making excuses and actually design that email template so you can start communicating with your subscribers! Let's do this.

If you've been scared to dive in and make a pretty newsletter template, or you've tried and given up, you're going to slap yourself when you see how easy this really is. Promise.

Now, I could sit here and take a bazillion and one screen shots and make you scroll through the whole freaking blog post to learn how to do it, but instead, I decided to make a video that you can pause & play until you "get it".

You're welcome.

Alright now, move over and grab your coffee. I'm going to sit next to you and show you how to design your custom MailChimp newsletter template.

 See? That's not so bad, right?! It's actually kinda fun.
