This video shows a step-by-step guide for getting started with email marketing your Etsy shop using an awesome new app.
Craftmonkey integrates with Mailchimp to bring your Etsy shop item photos and descriptions and “automagically” creates great looking email newsletters.
This is an in-depth video and I went a little slow on purpose so it would be easy to follow along if you’re not totally comfortable with this type of thing just yet.
If you’re already a web rock-star and you don’t need the slow version, here’s the fast version:
- Go to Mailchimp.com and set-up an account and mailing list
- Go to Craftmonkeyapp.com and connect your Mailchimp account.
- Follow the simple instructions in Craftmonkey to create an email.
- Get sales.
- Treat yourself to dinner out!
