Hey guys, I’m back with another amazing blog post. Whoop whoop!
Alright, I’m going to let you guys in on a secret that normally I wouldn’t tell but today I feel like it’s necessary. Before last week, I didn’t know how to create a legitimate looking sales page. Here’s why, literally almost every platform out there that you could use to create a fancy looking sales page COST MONEY! Now, I don’t know about you but I honestly don’t like spending money unless I have to, which is why I’ve became extremely good at finding cheaper alternatives.
As soon as I found out that I could re-create my sales page on MailChimp for FREE and make it look super fancy, I was like OMG I have to tell my viewers! Like, remember that scene on Bruce Almighty, when Jim Carrey was typing all cray cray on the computer…..? Totally me!
Before I dive straight in, I want you to know that this post is in NO WAY sponsored by MailChimp! I found out something amazing and I want to share it with you guys because we’re in this together.
I don’t want you guys to think I’m leaving any important details out so I’ll give it to you step by step with screen shots. I got you covered!
Creating Your MailChimp Account
The first step would be to head over to www.mailchimp.com and click “sign up for free” in the top right corner of the page.
MailChimp has a Forever Free, plan that let’s you use MailChimp for FREE forever under certain guidelines. Here they are, you get access to most MailChimp features, but your total subscribers are limited to 2,000 and your email per month limit is 12,000. If you ask me, that’s a pretty darn good steal!
Making Your List
What I love most about MailChimp, is that everything you create on their platform is designed to help you get more subscribers onto your list. With that being said, before you design anything on their platform you have to create a list first to connect your list to your design. I hope that made sense. The good thing is that you don’t need subscribers on your list to create your sales page, all you have to do is save the details of your list and you’re good to go. No worries, I’ll walk you through it with screen shots.
After you’ve created your MailChimp account and successfully signed in, the tab you’d want to click on is “list” towards the upper left corner of the screen.
From the “list” tab in the upper right corner of the screen click on “create list”. This will bring you to a page prompting you to enter in the details of your list. When you’re done click “save” and voila, your list is ready for the world.
Creating Your Sales Page
From the “campaigns” tab, in the right upper corner of the page, you should see the options to click on “create campaign” or “create”. If you’re under the “campaign” tab, your page should look similar to my screen shot below.
Both options will open up the same box asking you “what do you want to create?” So, it does not matter which one you click on, just whichever button floats your boat. After you click on the button of your choice, you should see a cute little box open up on your screen with a few options, in this case you’d want to click on “create a landing page”.
After you select “create a landing page”, at the top of the box switch the tab to “product page” then enter in the title you want your sales page to be and then select your list from the drop down menu. When you click “begin”, it will bring you to a page similar to my image below.
This is where you let your creativity shine bright like a diamond!
You got this, I believe in you. Now go and create an amazing sales page!
MailChimp not only gives you the option to create a banging sales page but it also gives you the option to create amazing lead/landing pages.
