Episode – 010- 3 Reasons Why It’s Time to Ditch Mailchimp

AH Mailchimp. When you are starting out, everyone tells you to use Mailchimp. It’s free. It’s easy.

EASY? Really??? Well, no.

In my experience, Mailchimp is clunky. Ineffective. Hard to use. Confusing. Boring.

So in this episode, I’m going to share the good, the bad, and the ugly (mostly the bad and ugly) of Mailchimp. I’m going to tell you precisely why I don’t recommend using it, and I’m going to be brutally honest about it.
