If you are like most small business owners that send out emails, whether an email newsletter or just random sales notifications, you probably use Mailchimp. (And if you don't, I highly recommend them!)
Mailchimp is awesome because they are simple to get started with, have some cool advanced features if you need them, and there is a LOT you can do for FREE! And we all know that free is good.
The biggest problem that most small business owners have is that they don't have the time, energy, or knowledge to really use their email list effectively. Don't feel bad--I'm in the club too, and I do marketing for a living!
Today I'm going to give you a super simple step-by-step to add a user to your Mailchimp account so that you can get some help with this great way to keep in touch with your customers and prospects, keeping you top of mind when it comes time to buy.

How a Mailchimp Helper can help you
If you are already familiar with Mailchimp, then maybe you just need somone to proofread your newsletters and make sure they get sent out.
If you're not already a Mailchimp Pro, then you could use someone who already knows their way around MC and can get you set up with a template and help you add content without you having to take time from your busy schedule to learn that stuff. Then you can hit the ground running, adding content and sending newsletters out.
If you're a super-blogger, your helper can set up an RSS feed so that very time you post on your blog, MC sends out a sweet email to your list with the blog post.
If you just don't want the hassle, set up your MC Helper with Admin privileges, and they can get your list set-up, a great template, and help you find and add content to send out, plus put a sign-up form on your website.
