In this MailChimp Video Tutorial I show you how to import contacts to MailChimp using a CSV file. The tutorial assumes you are a beginner and you have no list built yet in MailChimp.
HERE’S THE FULL ARTICLE
A QUICK NOTE BEFORE WE BEGIN
Importing contacts to your MailChimp list without their specific permission is not only poor business practice, professionally unethical and in violation of MailChimp’s Acceptable Use Policy, it also violates international privacy laws. So if these things are important to you then don’t it. Adding people to your list just to get numbers is marketing at it’s worst and completely counterproductive. If you’re even remotely interested in building an audience that supports your business then you’ll care about ethical marketing. If you don’t know how to do it, hire me to show you how to do it right.
How To Import Contacts To Mailchimp
1. Your contacts list will need to be in CSV file format. Find out more about CSV files here. I’m using Google Sheets to modify the CSV file for this demo. Where ever you happen to grab your contacts list from make sure it is in .csv format. You can use Excel or Openoffice to edit your CSV file.
2. The list I will be importing is a MailChimp list I downloaded earlier from MailChimp. Yours may be from an email list held with Infusionsoft or Aweber if you’ve decided to move house. As noted above, I discourage you to add contacts from Gmail or LinkedIn who have not previously voluntarily joined your list.
3. The MailChimp account I am using is a free account I use for demo purposes.
