Fans & Successes

Here are just a few of the many testimonials we’ve generated for our Marketing Support and Mailchimp Help… click here to see more 

Where it is natural that any delegate to a Mailchimp course wants to be able to send an email, Robin's approach is far more strategic and really challenges you to think about the best approach to manage your email list, how data reaches your mailchimp list, and then moves forward as to what emails are to be sent to this list and then how to craft that mail. Such an approach goes well beyond expectations.

Robin popped round for a day's intensive private session to help me move my Mail Chimp from an ad hoc messy thing into a finely honed precision machine that I may be able to sell on to team mates.

We worked really well together, got the outline worked out and structure in place. Robin has assisted with a few bits when I got stuck working on my own. Highly delighted with the results. Thanks Robin!

Dave Goodman

Owner, Clever Little Pig

Robin delivered an amazing course on how to use Mailchimp Effectively. I attended expecting to hear things I already knew. Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong. Robin was extremely well prepared for the session and has a great rapport with the group. He got right into the important things that i and I'm sure many others missed when setting up their accounts. He was more than happy to divert from the course content to ensure that he answered any questions that were thrown at him. I am hoping to implement as much as possible that I have learnt from him. I just wish I could listen to his wisdom every day. I would definitely recommend that if you have the opportunity to listen to Robin, you should grab it with both hands.

Top Mailchimp hacks everyone needs to know

Most people will probably only use the basics of what Mailchimp can offer and will be missing out on some awesome capabilities. To help you out, a few of us “experts” got together to share our Top Mailchimp Hacks Everyone Needs To Know.

At what point is a subscriber GONE?

Keeping your audiences organised and relevant is an important part of email marketing, but how do we know when a subscriber is really ‘gone’…as in, they are in your audience (list) but really shouldn’t be…and actually, perhaps, don’t want to be?

What’s your name?

Your name matters, especially when it comes to emails. Email is sent from an individual to an individual and for most small businesses your email needs to come from a named person in the business and not “sales” or “info”. Why? Let me explain…

What do to with Unsubscribed and Cleaned Emails In Mailchimp

To understand what to do, (if anything) you need to get a handle on what these terms mean to you and Mailchimp. Once you know this, it’s a lot easier to handle.

What email newsletter sign up incentives work best?

“How do I build an email list?” is a regular question within the Chimp Answers community. I’ve spoken to 8 other industry experts to get their opinion on what makes a good incentive when it comes to encouraging email newsletter sign up.

The Perfect Fit

Don’t make it difficult for your customers to say yes…don’t put up unnecessary barriers. Make sure your potential clients know why you are the perfect fit, so that buying from you is a no brainer.

No email response doesn’t mean no thank you

MailChimp says, on average a resend will increase your overall open rates by 8.7% so should we be taking no for an answer?

Are you letting the tail wag the dog? Take control of technology.

Are you letting technology dictate your marketing when you know what you’re trying to do is the right thing for the business?
You can’t let the tail wag the dog and here’s why.

The power of signals of proof…

The most powerful signals of proof usually come in two main varieties…from someone we know and trust personally, or from a trusted body. If you need someone to help with your Mailchimp…(hint: you’re already in the right place!)…I’m a Certified Mailchimp Expert.
