INTERACTIVE WORKSHOP – Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

Presented by Andrea Anderson

Did you know that brands lose an average of 25% of their mailing list annually, and between 25-50% of customers become inactive?

If they are not communicating with you, they will be communicating with your competitors.

Using Mailchimp as the main email communication platform, in this workshop you will learn:

  • Setup your newsletter for increased engagement
  • The process for developing an automated response campaign
  • 3 tricks to re-engage your old and outdated database
  • How to integrate with other software platforms for automated communication

This is a hands-on workshop where you will be working inside Mailchimp and creating templates to send.
