How To Start A Mailing List With Mailchimp

Again, back to my Seth Godin obsession.  Seth starts his 3 Day Startup event talking about what you will encounter as an entrepreneur but at the very end he focuses in on a really important idea I want to reiterate: Building an online presence and a following is really important.

Why is that?

Say for whatever reason you created a mailing list.  Now instead of having 2-3 friends’ opinions, you get 10,000.  Sure, you can have facebook, but really… not everyone will go on facebook all the time.  However, everyone will check their emails at least 5-10 times a day.  GAURANTEED.  And all it really takes is one click for them to go from their inbox to your message.  Now you are in the realm of the “heard”.  All you need to do is build your following.

Seth also highlights the importance of things being share-able but first only to a select niche.  Because all you really need is a few people to like what you have to hear but more importantly feel compelled to share what you have to say.  That small tiny group can then expand because they will self propagate your message {And really, it doesn’t matter what your message may be… as long as you make it feel share-able.)

Therefore I feel like I should tell you guys about Mailchimp.com. (more…)


 

 How to Bypass the Subscription Fee Forever & “The Hardest Part”

My very smart and Dr. to be bro just told me this hack yesterday.  He reads The New York Times.  Noticed that it went from 20 free articles a month to 15 and now it’s down to 5.  So you can actually read all articles for free if you use google’s “Incognito” chrome browsing to browse around.  The reason for this is because during “Incognito” mode, no cookies are stored.  Therefore, no footprint.  By the way, I am not talking about a real baked cookie.

Nice, quick workaround eh?  And you didn’t even have to download anything! Shiiiiiieeet.  My brother says, “You’re welcome.”

I go through phases of listening to amazing thought provoking individuals who are generous enough to make the effort into letting their voices be heard either through video or audio or a blog.  Right now the flavor of the month is Seth Godin – a distinct HUMAN flavor. (more…)
