Department Newsletters with MailChimp and WordPress

Presenters: Cathy Finn-Derecki

The UMW News and Publication Information office recently launched an HTML newsletter using a service called Mailchimp. Mailchimp allows up to 12,000 emails per month FOR FREE. The UMW website, and UMW Blogs, both have tools that integrate WordPress, Gravity Forms, and Mailchimp to enable you to send out regular newsletters via spiffy HTML emails AND to manage newsletter subscriptions and mailing lists. The days of PDF newsletters are GONE!!!! All the cool kids are using Mailchimp.
