Description: The article is about mailchimp login. This is a tutorial for how to create a MailChimp account. It is created for high school students who are engaged in a learning unit where they are researching and promoting a social justice.
Today we’re going to learn about how to login to MailChimp which is the software we’re going to use for our unit around choosing a social justice issue that you want to promote and try to persuade others to join.
We have mail chimp,this is where you’re going to create your account. The first thing that you’re going to do after you open up your computer is to go to MailChimp.com. Then you’re going to click the button on the right that says sign up for free. We’re going to enter our email address.
You should also have a username so instead of logging in with our email address each time,we’re going to login with a specific user name and then a password. MailChimp is changing some of the way that they receive emails after they’re sent out,for this particular exercise,we’re going to be sure to use our school email address so that when we send emails,they won’t go to people’s junk boxes.
I’m putting in my school address and then I have to come up with the username. I’m going to go with teacher Casey and then type in a password. You should be sure that you look down here for the specifications or the rules around how your password has to be created. We’ll need one lowercase character or letter,one uppercase character,a number,a special character,a number sign.
I want to do an @ sign,you’ll see the number two and then you can click shift,and it has to be eight characters minimum. I have met all the requirements and you’ll see here now it says your password is secure and you’re all set. I would make sure you write down your password so that you don’t forget it as well as your username.
If you forget it then you have to go through this process where they send you an email and that’s fine,but it’s easier if you write it down. Once you’ve written down your password like I did,you’re going to click create my account. It says thanks for signing up,this means we now have to go to our email up and activate our account through our email address,that’s the next thing you’re going to do.
You’re going to open a new tab,since our school email addresses are through Google applications or through Gmail,I’m going to go to Gmail.com and I’m going to log in to the same account that I use to set up my email address. You’ll see a new email from male chip client services,you can click on that,you’ll see here it says welcome to MailChimp and then it’ll say your username,mine’s teacher Casey.
You’re going to click activate account. This will bring you back to the mailchimp website and it’s going to check to see if you’re human and not a machine,it wants to make sure you’re human. Now we have confirmed humanity. I’m going to click I’m not a robot because I’m a real person.
We’re going to click confirm to sign up,you can wait for that green check and then click confirm sign up. Depending on how fast your computer is,this part might cause delay. You’re going to put in some of your personal information. We’re going to put in some information about our school.
This process can be a little bit long,that’s why we have a whole tutorial for it to make sure we can get it right. I’m going to put in my first name,that’s Casey and then I am going to put in my last name. Your email address should already have been automatically filled in.
You can scroll down. This is the organization information,you’re going to answer these questions. How many people are in your organization? For us we’re a small school,we have about 300 to 500 people. You can click yes. We are going to have a list of emails to import into mailchimp which will be our next tutorial. You’re not setting this up for a client,you’re setting it up for yourself.
Here’s a little bit they want to know about us. We can write our school name. Let’s find out what it is. We can open a new tab and click enter to search,our URL will show up. This is our home page for our school. We’re going to copy and paste the URL in the web address for our home page.
We’re going to copy and paste that from the top bar,then we’re going to put that back into our mail chimp sign up accounts. I’m going to highlight it,I’m going to click copy. I’m going to go back to my tab. We’re going to go ahead and enter our website URL.
If I go back to the Ascend website,we have the address,we can copy and paste that too. You can take your cursor to highlight that. The city is Oakland,and then we need to provide our zip code and postal code. Our address is filled out,we can see the city the state and zip code.
What’s our industry? It’s education. We’re going to select education and training from this drop down bar and then we’re going to select our time zone. Since we’re on the west coast,that means that we’re on specific time,we’re going to choose specific time. We’re not going to upload a photo,we’re not going to subscribe to the Mailchimp,we’re going to click save and get started.
This is our dashboard. We’re going to control everything with Mailchimp. Now you’re all logged in,we’re going to stop this screen. Next time I will teach you how to import our list,how to create and send a campaign by using MailChimp in order to promote your social justice cause.
