Behind The Scenes, General InfoElizabeth Ramos

The closer we get to the main event, the more we want to tell you about the people who make the festival possible. Today, I want to share all the goodness of MailChimp with you. If you’re a business owner, event coordinator, or leader of any sort that handles a lot of group communication, MailChimp could be an indispensable tool for you.

MailChimp describes themselves as a way to help you: design email newletters, share them on social networks, integrate with services you already use, and track your results. In short, they call themselves “your own personal publishing platform.” Besides keeping you and your followers organized, MailChimp provides beautiful design templates, loads of free advice and tutorials, and even ways to manage all of your features on the go. Best of all, you can get most of the MailChimp services for FREE! Their no-nonsence approach to mass communication combined with their fun personality and design make MailChimp a great tool for anybody.

And on a personal note: We at Indie Craft Parade have used MailChimp to organize our newsletters and campaigns for the past few years, and we can't imagine using anyone else's services. Not only does MailChimp provide a great product that makes our lives so much easier, but also we love them because they truly care about the creative community that we're a part of. They've given amazing business advice to our followers through participating in The Makers Summit, they always provide an element of fun to the events they're part of (i.e., Freddie the Chimp hats), and they donate generously so Greenville can can continue to enjoy Indie Craft Parade.

So please, if you're looking for a service that provides solutions such as MailChimp does, give them a try. We stand behind their product, and we know they're good people to do business with.
