Mailchimp tutorial Part 2

Welcome, welcome !

Today, it will be a pretty straight forward post of to do and having done list. The last two days have come and gone and even if I’m at home, I’ve been busy ! Applying to jobs, cooking, figuring out which type of coding I’ll have to learn to run this blog, discovering what is a domain and how it’s different from hosting and how in any case all these things cost money. I’ve downloaded gimp to start learning how to edit photos and create cool thumbnails for youtube, I was at a presentation of how a company should run a youtube channel to make money (tubereach was presenting). I’ve realised that yes, for every question that I have, I go to youtube and it is in fact very clear to me why it is the second search engine in the world (right after google) and why “help” videos will explode in 2018. Help videos are how to videos or tutorials. I’ve in fact youtube-ed (is this gonna become a word ?) how to cook an egg to make it soft boiled (I failed but the video of how to was there) and how to use this (apparently awesome) computer that I have, specifically the application iMovies for cropping, trimming, cutting and yes, uploading to youtube.

I would say, I’ve done some stuff and I therefore prepared for you Mailchimp tutorial Part 2 : How to send a Campaign (just click on the title and you will be transported to youtubeland) with sweat and tears (or cold sweat, I’m slightly cold this morning); and no tears, more like frustration (so much to learn in such a short time and make it till the deadline, make itttt) and here we are.

I’m glad you are here and I am glad I am here.

There is still SO MUCH to learn ! I will definitely continue with my Mailchimp tutorial sessions – be tuned in for that every Thursday (we got about half of the “workout” done) and I’ll let you know anyways ! Next up, I will be re-defining what to do with this section here – the Thursday section dedicated to Mailchimping. As I’m not currently using Mailchimp on a daily basis, I’m not learning, and how can I share if there’s nothing that I have learnt ? Therefore, I have a few ways to go and I will for shizzy (for sure) think it over during the next few weeks so that 1. this section stays cause I ❤️ Mailchimp and 2. I  learn the max and share with you max as well. Awesome, awesome.

I leave you with :

A post about the future, patience, expectations, and a Mailchimp surprise

I’m late! A post about the future, patience, expectations, and a Mailchimp surprise.

Late for school, late for work, late for life! Have you ever asked yourself what you should have done by now? All the accolades you should have received, awards, job positions, internships, education, degrees, goals, perfect partner, body, a baby, a house? I know I have. I know I have spent time shaming myself and putting myself down. I am not good enough, I cannot do this, and any other reason to avoid real work. I must be honest though, the reason behind not doing what you know you should be doing may be different for each person. However, putting yourself out there requires courage. It requires courage you may not have, going against your family, yourself and even if you are afraid!

So there you go, all of this to say that I recognise my one month hiatus. Sometimes life just comes and washes over you like a huge wave. This is not to say I have not been working on other areas during this time but I was not here. I was not here to create and voyage on this journey of blogging with you, my dear readers. I’m sorry because I care about you, all the future you and I care for this blog. To improve my “image” therefore, I rolled out a banging visme e-book review on Tuesday and I am promising to do better for the future.

Soooo… I have an extra surprise for you ! The link is here ! Oh, but what is it ? It is… my Mailchimp tutorial session ! I’ve prepared a Mailchimp tutorial after cca. two to four months of experimenting with Mailchimp. It is really for those that want to understand the platform, how it can serve them and operational : how to send a campaign, how to schedule it, design it, how to choose the target audience and more and more. I loved learning about it and I am loving sharing this knowledge with you ! Again, the link to the Tutorial is herrrrre.

Please let me know what you think of it, I wold love to have your feedback (do not hesitate to comment below) and improve my teaching skills as a consequence. Also, I want to showcase how much I’ve learnt and how good I am at it as a result! No shame in being a little self-promotional :). Anyways, it was super cool working on it and I’d do it again, more, for me or for others.

I know this post was not necessarily about Mailchimp all the way but I am really proud of my tutorial :). I put all my best into it. There is great quality and I really believe in it. And so to finish up with coming back to the start – it is not always easy ! To be consistent and just be here.

Cheer up ! It was raining yesterday so it was the perfect time for some cider and fromageee (cheese in French).
