I don’t recommend things that I don’t use and like so it’s a no brainer to say that you should sign up for MailChimp – especially since it’s now free for lists of under 500 people.
If you’re serious about promoting yourself and your work you need a mailing list!
Why use MailChimp or other email marketing services? I made this video to explain some of the advantages.
The signup link here gives you $30 in credit if you get a paid accouint, too.
