Are You Missing Out on What You Can Do with MailChimp?

When you're building your website, you'll soon come across the dilemma to figure out what the best tool is to use for email marketing. 

If you're just starting out in your online business, the free MailChimp plan is a fantastic tool to start building your mailing list. 

As long as you stay below 2,000 subscribers and 12,000 emails per month, you can use it for free, forever. This is enough to get serious about email marketing before you upgrade to a better plan.

However, as most free tools, the free MailChimp plan has its limitations. It's almost impossible to build a well-designed, conversion focused opt-in form that will get you the right people on your list. 

This is what we're helping with in the newest Thrive University lesson

Read on if you want to get the most out of MailChimp while saving time! 

How To Set Up Email Segmentation In Less Than 5 Minutes

Amanda is working in a bank, during the daytime she's sitting in front of her computer and has to deal with clients' problems. She has to keep her cool and when she finally gets home after a hard day's work, she loves to funnel all the energy built up during the day into an active, sweaty workout. 

Sarah is a mother of 4 toddlers. She spends most of her days running around trying to keep them from mischief and keeping the house in order. This leaves her exhausted most of the evenings. The only thing she wants is to take some time for herself, reconnect with her body and relax.

​At first glance, Amanda and Sarah have nothing in common... Nevertheless they are both looking for a yoga course that fits their needs and they both landed on Heather's website.

​If Heather met these two women in person, she would never offer the same yoga course or present the benefits of yoga in the same way to the both of them. 

Why then would she send the same sales email to one and the other? That doesn't make much sense, does it?

The solutions to this problem is buyer persona based email segmentation.

That's quite a mouthful and sounds like something only large corporations can afford to do. But as you'll see in today's video, it's actually easy for you to segment your email list into relevant groups as well.

In this video you'll discover 3 ways to segment your email list that you can put into action in less than 5 minutes using Thrive Leads or Thrive Quiz Builder.

Content Recycling: How to Never Run Out of Content Ideas Again

Content marketing is a great way to build an online audience, generate traffic and strengthen your brand.

How Penn & Teller Revealed a Magic Trick and Skyrocketed My Business Growth

Be honest - you want to hit it big and make headlines everywhere.

You want to go from zero to massive income, achieve ludicrous subcriber counts in no time, be part of wildly profitable product launches... It's the classic hero-story and you want to be part of it.

Yet, your every attempt always seems to leave you stuck in the little league.

You're constantly dabbling in the same fields as these big hitters, but the hero high note of massive success always seems to be just out of reach.

Why is that? Are some people simply destined for greatness?

Recently I heard Penn Gillette, the bombastic larger half of the Penn&Teller illusionist-duo, guest speaking on the Art of Charm podcast. He made me realize why some people will never achieve greatness, and some will achieve it every time they try.

And because it's Penn Gillette, the answer comes in the form of an illusion.
