There’s the wrong way… and there’s the right way…

No matter whether you’ve been using Mailchimp since it started, way back in 2001, or are a recent convert, it’s hard to disagree that it’s very easy to get started with.

If you follow the basic instructions, you can usually get an email out to a list of emails relatively easily. It might not look stunning, but it’ll get where it needs to go and get the message across… and that may be all you need.

Unfortunately, because Mailchimp focuses on making it so easy to start, the next step is actually a bit harder to navigate, and thus you have to try and work out the right way to do things for your own business.

…and if you’re not careful, you could end up actually making things harder and worse if you’re not 100% sure of what you’re doing.

Mailchimp… Not helping!!!

Mailchimp has over 12 million users worldwide. No matter if they’re bigger businesses, local churches, the restaurant round the corner, an online retailer or a local youth group, they could be using Mailchimp to communicate.

…but with that breadth of users, and levels of experience (not to mention how they actually use the system), Mailchimp’s own training resource isn’t as specific as we’d all like it to be.

So much of the time the specifics of how you should do something aren’t as specific as they could be.

….and you’re left wondering to yourself… am I doing this the right way?

Learning Mailchimp ‘the right way’

Due to it’s breadth of users (and uses), Mailchimp doesn’t preach a “this is the right way”, because for many their requirements are quite simple and basic.

…but for business owners who want to take advantage of things like landing pages, automation and website integrations, doing things the ‘wrong’ way will make things harder (and might even make things worse!).

With time and experience, you can eventually learn how to set things up ‘the right way’… but chances are you’ll make some mistakes along the way, and it won’t be a quick learning curve.

…and thus it might be easier (and definitely quicker) to use a Mailchimp expert to get you where you want to be.

121 Mailchimp Training

When you really need individual advice in person

Tailored, in person, face to face training – The ‘Ultimate’ Mailchimp training solution.

You sit there, looking at the screen… you’ve a feeling that there’s so much more to Mailchimp, that you’re only scratching the surface… whether it’s forms, automations, or just how to write a better email.

How do you get the best answers to your Mailchimp questions?… and how do you use Mailchimp to underpin and support the growth of your business?

An in-person 121 training session is hands down the best way to get the in-depth and specific support that you need to make Mailchimp an effortless and effective integral part of your businesses marketing efforts.

Unlike group training, the 121 session is tailored specifically around you and your needs. It can cover anything from getting yourself started with a solid database structure, through setting up forms for effective data capture, all the way to advanced elements such as automation (who doesn’t love letting the computer do the hard work?) and variable email formatting.

…and of course, unlike your traditional, IT “geek based” focus, the training will include over 25 years of marketing experience – meaning that not only will you know what to press (and when)… but why you’re pressing it, and the knowledge that it’s having a positive impact on your marketing efforts.

So no matter where you are, an in-person, 121 training session will give you what you need to make Mailchimp work for you and your business.

There is simply no better way for you to get a grip on Mailchimp and your marketing activity.

I thought the whole session was excellent. We covered more than I thought we would and Robin took time to understand my business, my capabilities and what I wanted to achieve. He made it easy for me to follow and the practical run throughs were brilliant. I really did learn something that will be valuable to my business.

Got any questions about In Person 121 Mailchimp Training?

Here’s some of the questions we get asked the most about In-person 121 Mailchimp Training.

How long is a training session?

Due to the nature of an in-person training session, we’ve learnt that a (max) 4 hour session (either as one block, or split into two x two hour sessions) is the best way to get the focus and detail that is needed to succeed.

Obviously, if there is more to cover, then we can do a full day session, but experience has indicated that breaking things down delivers a better result for everyone and ensures that you are able to take in what you need.

How Much Does The Training Cost?

Each 4 hour session is charged at £350 (no VAT) plus mileage costs from SW London & any other agreed expenses (we can even be persuaded to stay a little longer with chocolate!).

Mileage is charged at 45p per mile for every mile over 40 miles total.

All costs are agreed and confirmed prior to the session being booked, so that it’s all completely transparent.

A non-refundable 50% deposit is charged at point of booking with the balance (£175 plus expenses) due within 7 days of the training session being completed. If the session is broken into 2 parts, then the balance is due within 7 days of the second session being completed.

Where Does The Training Take Place?

All 121 sessions are delivered at a location of your choice using your equipment. From experience, conducting training on your computer with your data is much more effective as it allows direct relevant examples, and means that as you learn, you implement on your marketing straight away.

Ideally this will be your office/work location, but if an alternative location is necessary, then it must offer a quiet environment to allow for the training to be conducted without interruption, easy access to coffee/tea (we need our caffeine!), and with a reliable internet connection.  We can help you to find appropriate locations, but all costs associated with such a location are to be born by you, the client.

What Happens If I Need To Cancel?

Sessions can be changed/rebooked up to 14 days prior to the agreed date, but any changes within 14 days may incur an additional cost.

If the course is cancelled within 14 days without rebooking, the full cost of course is charged.

If the course is cancelled outside of 14 days, only the deposit is charged.

How Many People Can Be Trained?

The 121 training is designed to be delivered to just you!  If you are looking for training for more than one person, please contact us directly so we can advise on the options available.

How Do I Know We'll Cover The Topics I Want?

In the initial discussions prior to the actual session, we cover the specific requirements you have, ensuring it’s tailored to your level and your needs.

It’s about ensuring you get what you need to succeed and so the initial chat prior to the session will establish these requirements.

Do I Get Any Other Benefits?

Every 121 training session comes with 30 days support after the session. We ask that you don’t abuse this… but typically if a query takes 10/15 minutes to solve, we’ll do our best to get it sorted.

What type of chocolate can I bribe you with?

If you want me to stay for a few extra minutes over the allocated time, chocolate is usually a good way of doing it. Current favourite is Hershey’s Cookies & Cream… but i’m partial to most Cadbury chocolate as well (as long as it doesn’t have dead flies (i.e. raisins) in it!).

121 Remote Mailchimp Training

When you live miles away but still need that 121 advice

Can’t make it to a live event… or you’d rather you were able to learn in your own environment on your own schedule?

One-to-one webinar training uses the power of the internet and enables you to benefit from a one on one session with a specialist MailChimp coach through your computer. You can book in hour long blocks and design your training around your own schedule.

How does it work?  Using the power of the internet, we connect using an online collaboration tool, so that your coach is able to see your screen and hear you, whilst you can see your coaches screen and hear them.

All this means less of “press this button… what you can’t see it?” and more of “click on the green button and then on the red icon, see this is how I did it…”.

One-to-one webinar training means you get the benefit of clear and focused MailChimp training… all on your schedule.

A one hour session over Skype really helped me get my head around what I should be doing with MailChimp. Robin knows MailChimp, but he knows Marketing too, which meant every nugget was based on how to develop my business using email, not purely on the technical aspects of MailChimp

Wayne Trice

Owner, Magic in a Trice

How much does it cost?

A 1 hour remote training session is £100, but this also includes some prep work where we review your MailChimp account and get an understanding of where you are already.

We also offer a money back guarantee – if you feel you’ve not got results from the session that you want – or if we felt that we’ve not been able to help you, you’ll get a complete refund.

How do I know it's relevant and specific to me?

Every remote session includes some time spent reviewing your MailChimp account prior to the session. We request access as an administrator to your account which allows us to understand what you’re doing and the things you can get better at. We also send you a brief questionnaire so we can understand how you capture leads (forms, direct) which is a big part of MailChimp and successful email marketing.

What software do I need to do the session?

Typically we run the sessions on Zoom as this allows us to share screens and chat. It’s free, so you won’t incur any additional cost.  Of course, you need a robust internet signal to do the session… but since MailChimp is an online resource, this shouldn’t be an issue.

What can we cover in the session?

The session is driven by your needs and the initial questionnaire/account review. Obviously you can focus on the key issues you’re facing and get answers to them as well. We’ve seen most things when it comes to MailChimp so unless your query is very specific or very advanced we should be able to help (and if we can’t, you’ll get your money back!)

How do I book?

If you want to proceed with the session, then Click Here and send us a message – we’ll then let you know how to book and make payment prior to the session.

 

We’re based in the UK so we try and do sessions between 9am and 6pm UK time, but if that’s not possible we can them later or earlier (although we’re not very “morning” Chimps without a heavy dose of coffee!!!)

Group Mailchimp Training

Who wants to learn alone?

Cost Effective Mailchimp training

If time and cost was no object, then everyone would be looking for an in-person 121 training session on Mailchimp.

Unfortunately, for every business, time and cost are something to be aware of, and using those resources effectively is something not to be ignored.

Consequently, a group/classroom training session might be the right way forward for you.

Whether you’re looking for a Kickstart to get your Mailchimp up to speed, or to Supercharge your Mailchimp to the next level, our training courses give you the tools you need to get your email marketing working for you in a cost effective manner.

In appropriate and convenient locations, you’ll be able to interact with other Mailchimp users and get the low down on what you need to be doing.

…and post session you’ll get a copy of the slides used in the presentation, along with relevant tips, advice and links to appropriate articles.

…and you’ll also get 30 days free ongoing support to ask any questions you forgot or which came up after the session.

Group Training is a cost effective way to get your ‘chimp moving or take it to the next level.

…and if you’ve already got a group of people who want training, be they several people in a single organisation, or members of a community, networking or business group – we can deliver effective ‘in-house’ training to you customised to your specific needs.

Working closely with the organiser, we can tailor the contents specific to the audience to ensure they learn the ‘right’ way to do things – specific to their needs.

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.

Damian McGill

Partner, Pauley Business Services

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.

How Much Will It Cost?

As all In-house training sessions are bespoke it’s not possible to give a direct indication of costs… but you can get an indication from our other training courses. The costs are dependent on number of attendees and the level and length of training.

What Training Can We Have?

The length and detail of training is completely based on your requirements.

As an indication, we’ve run half day introductory sessions for membership based organisations giving them the top line details, and have run full day courses for up to 30 attendees giving people the stuff they need to start implementing themselves.  We’ve also done custom half day and full day sessions for agencies and VA businesses so they can make the most of MailChimp for their customers.

What are the Minimum Requirements?

To run an in-house session requires a minimum of 3 individuals working for the same organisation, or at least 8 individuals if it’s for a membership organisation.  There also needs to be a location to run the training which has access to the internet (and either a big screen or projector that all can view)
