I’ve been using Mailchimp for my newsletter for a few weeks now.
I’d like to use it to send an email that looks like all of the regular emails I send from Gmail. I don’t need graphics or anything else, just a little HTML here and there (anchors, bold, and italics mostly).
The way I’ve done it so far is:
- Compose newsletter in Gmail
- Send newsletter from Gmail to the random-looking email address Mailchimp have assigned to my newsletter mailing list
- Check and tweak the received newsletter in Mailchimp Campaign wizard
- Send newsletter from Mailchimp
Can you recommend any other other ways to compose a simple looking email in Mailchimp (that isn’t plain text)? I’m concerned that perhaps the imported email won’t look right in some clients. Sadly none of Mailchimp’s templates or themes seem to be appropriate.
Thanks in advance,
