How do I create a MailChimp Autoresponder Email

The free version of MailChimp allows you to set up a single “welcome” email, which you can use as an autoresponder when somebody signs up for your email squeeze page offer.

It’s not possible to send an attachment, but you CAN include a link to a downloadable file, such as a PDF cheat sheet.

To create an autoresponder follow these five steps.

Step 1. – Sign up for a free MailChimp account
Step 2. – Click on “Create a Campaign” button and select “Email”
Step 3. – Select “Automated” from the popup menu
Step 4. – Select the “Welcome” message option
Step 5. – Design your campaign and welcome email

Don’t forget to send yourself a “Test Email” on the final screen page to make sure everything is working.
