New Feature: MailChimp Landing Pages

Best known for email marketing, MailChimp is many marketers’ go-to service for email communications. The platform has been expanding their services and has now added Landing Pages. In their blog post announcing them, they state that they noticed an increase in complexity for e-commerce store owners – so they created a simplified option for their users.

If you are familiar MailChimp, you’ll notice that the landing pages are set up in the same easy drag-and-drop style. This allows non-designers to easily build customizable pages. A great perk MailChimp offers is that there is no limit to the number of landing pages you can create.

A Note From Our Owner: Buzzwords That Should Die

A Note From Our Owner: Buzzwords That Should Die

I’m pretty sure it’s just because I’m over the age of 30 (okay… 40….. or….), but Buzzwords are this thing in business that resonates with me like a mosquito that shows up on a muggy day and won’t go away. No matter how many times you swat at it and try to squish it. Often, I find myself wondering how they even get started? Then, I find myself wondering how long we have to suffer through their longevity. Last, I’m reminded that even though they go away for a time, they often come back around… once people have forgotten them… as if they were some new hip original term… and we have to go through the whole process again.

Just to be clear, I’m all for coming up with new and innovative ways to say or state something (I mean, of course… I’m a lifelong marketer), but there is so much information showing up on the “digital highway” that I quite frankly can’t keep up with, I’m really starting to miss the old adage: “Just say it” (or as I like to say “spare me the rhetoric and get to the point”).
