Effective Email Marketing with MailChimp – Bournemouth – Dorset Growth Hub

April 12 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm


Email is one of the most powerful digital marketing tools available to businesses. But it’s also one of the most undervalued, particularly by smaller firms. Email allows you to connect with an audience that are genuinely interested in your products.

This workshop is for businesses keen to explore how to use email marketing. It will include an explanation of how to set up and begin using MailChimp. Delivered by Andrew Knowles, our experienced and talented Digital Specialist, he will take you on a hands on journey with a “how to” approach on the basics of your email marketing strategy.

Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or tablet, so they can start to set up their own email marketing system during the workshop.

The workshop is based largely around MailChimp, but the principles will be applicable to other email marketing systems.

This workshop will cover:

  • The basics of MailChimp
  • How to set up your email marketing system
  • Designing your email
  • Personalisation and automation of emails
