Building a Mailchimp System from Scratch
Email Marketing consistently sits at the top of the charts when it comes to marketing activities and the return on investment (ROI) they generate. To really take advantage of the fantastic returns available, you need an email marketing system that is effective in communicating with your customers, but also one that’s easy to manage, and is the right fit for your business.
Chimp Answers combines marketing and Mailchimp to help build a system that is the perfect fit for you, your prospects and your customers, whatever your business area.
Three things to know…
If you’re considering getting an email marketing system for your business, here are answers to the top 3 questions we get asked about this service, to help understand how it can help you.
Where do I start?
If you’re not sure if you want a system, we’ll help walk you through the process so you understand everything about the system and how it will benefit your business. It’s never templated, but is completely bespoke to your business and your prospects and customers
How do I know it's going to work?
We’ve build systems for all types of business and combining our knowledge of best practice in Mailchimp, along with an underlying knowledge in successful marketing, we’ll build a system that has every chance to succeed.
I don't just need an email system, I need a marketing system
As marketers first, we are able to advise on the full range of marketing tools and activities that you can use to succeed. Email marketing is a part of a broader marketing system every business should have and we’ll help point you in the right direction
It’s probably safe to say that most businesses out there realise the benefits of having an email marketing system. It can communicate and build relationships with prospects without any direct involvement. It can drive them to take the key actions, that turn them into customers… and it can continue to build relationships and get those customers not just to buy more, but to tell others about you.
…and this isn’t just for e-commerce or online businesses, this is for all types of business.
The thing is that most business owners are very good at ‘their thing’. It’s why they’ve got a business in the first place. Unfortunately, being good at ‘their thing’ doesn’t make them great marketers, let alone email marketing system builders.
Time is a limited resource and when you’re running a business, you don’t have the time to learn, develop and test your own system, let alone know if you’re doing it the right way.
Chimp Answers are specialists at building email marketing systems using Mailchimp, the world’s biggest email marketing tool.
With an intimate knowledge of the technology, along with over 25 years experience in all aspects of marketing, we work with you to build a system that works, adapting it to your circumstances and ensuring it’s a perfect fit for you and your customers.
No business is the same, and so each system we build is bespoke, meaning it’s tailored to your specific needs and those of your customers.
…and as marketers, we know it’s never about getting the technology to work , it’s about effectiveness and efficiency, getting the results you need in a way that fits with your business and is easy to manage.
We asked Robin to run a basic MailChimp training course for local businesses, giving them some background and an introduction to the tool. The 3 hour sessions have been brilliantly received by those attending, and they’ve left with skills and knowledge that they have been able to apply straight away.
We’ve run 5 individual courses so far over the last 12 months and have plans to run more throughout the year. Robin’s understanding of MailChimp and his marketing background make him an ideal person to help small businesses navigate the software and understand how to use it for their business, and this has been reflected in the feedback for the courses.

Pricing & Timing Guidelines
As with many projects we work on, it’s hard to give a complete breakdown of the potential costs involved, but to give some indication of the potential costs, we’ve built systems which have ranged in cost from $500 (£350) up to $4,000 (£3,000).
In terms of how long it takes to build a system, the planning/blueprint generation stage usually take 2 weeks, and then even for the biggest systems, we’re able to complete them within a 4 week timeframe.
'...in only a couple of hours a week'
I was feeling pretty down when I contacted Robin. I'd struggled to generate leads in my business regularly and didn't really have an idea of what I should be doing from a marketing point of view... I was a marketing magpie - looking for the next shiny thing I thought would help, without any thought out strategy.
Working with Robin has completely changed my approach to marketing. In only a couple of hours a week, I've been able to really get under the skin of my customers, develop marketing that specifically appeals to them and start generating valuable leads for my business from the right type of customer.
