View Full Version : Setting up a mailing list?

07-07-2017, 12:01 PM
I've read quite often recently that a mailing list is a good marketing tool for authors. I have a wordpress website which gets a few visitors, but I'm not sure where to go from there in setting up a mailing list and what's the best way to go about it, so I'd be grateful for any advice. I don't have a lot of money to spend so if I need anything other than the website to do it, recommendations for cheap (or free) services would be appreciated. (Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, I did search and couldn't find anything).

I use MailChimp. It's free, very user-friendly and does the job. :)

It'll give you a link you can put on your website or blog to sign up for a newsletter - that's a good start.

Thanks Broadsword and Sheryl! I've been meaning to do this myself, and this post gave me the kick in the pants I needed. :)

I can connect WordPress and MailChimp manually but hopefully this tutorial (https://connect.mailchimp.com/how-to/128) is what you need.
