Mailchimp Analysis

…for when you need to know if you’re doing it right

Are you good at Mailchimp? How do you really know?

If you’ve been using Mailchimp for a while, it’s easy to fall into the habit of just doing the same thing again and again. You seem to be getting good open rates, and you seem to be getting good results, so why change?

Unfortunately, for most Mailchimp users, this is a trap. When all you see if your own data and own results, you’re creating an echo chamber, reinforcing your own knowledge and belief things are going well… and because of that you aren’t aware of other things you could be doing. In essence…

You don’t know what you don’t know

If you’ve no context of how you’re performing next to other Mailchimp users, how do you know if you’re doing it right? How do you know that your leveraging the best that the platform has to offer? How do you know you’re not missing something crucially important which could have an exponential effect on your results?

You don’t – but this is where we can help you.

Having reviewed and audited hundreds of Mailchimp accounts over the last 10 years, we’ve come to understand the right (and the wrong) way to develop and use Mailchimp.

Just because Mailchimp doesn’t come with an instruction manual doesn’t mean there isn’t a right or a wrong way – our analysis will ensure you do things right.

  • If you’re not sure you’re on the right account level or want to make sure you’re not spending more than you should (hint: most Mailchimp users do!) then we can do a free Check-Up on your account and highlight any account issues.
  • We’ve also got a self-help tool where you can Rate Your Chimp by answering a few simple questions on how you use Mailchimp – and which will give you ideas of where you can get better.
  • …or if you want to do things properly, you can go for a full Mailchimp account audit – which we call a Chimp Medical – which looks in detail at your account and focuses on the 1o key areas that can make or break your Mailchimp success.

The simple fact is most Mailchimp users don’t know if they’re doing it the right way – the only way to really know is to get the experts in who’ve seen it all and can ensure you are truly on the right path.

"…if you're looking for experts in how Mailchimp works, Chimp Answers are the people to go to!"

I'd managed to upload my mailing list to Mailchimp and create a lead magnet PDF relevant to my business but I couldn't work out how to connect the landing page on the website to Mailchimp to receive the lead magnet automatically.

Initially, Chimp Answers was just going to sort this out for me but the scope of the work grew to encompass my wider marketing objectives and how to engage with these new leads in order to sell more hypnotherapy sessions to them.

Chimp Answers created an automated welcome series to maximise the customer journey and knowledge of my services and provided prompts for me to create content for the automated emails.

"This simple but valuable set up has given me the confidence and ability to duplicate the process in the future for new lead magnets."

Why would you be comfortable spending more than you should for anything?… and yet despite this, most organisations are currently paying more than they should for Mailchimp.
