About this video: How to set up your opt-in gift using MailChimp
When subscribers sign-up to your MailChimp list, they are funneled through an opt-in sequence whereby they have to confirm their subscription and, in turn, they receive confirmation of their subscription. You can use these notifications and automated emails to share a free gift – such as a PDF, a video, a zip file of inspirational image quotes or printable planners.
In this video, I walk you through exactly how to do this!
About the Web Designer Beauty School:
You can use this course to build your own website. Or you can use this course to grow your own web design business, to attract more ideal clients, and ultimately make more money — and you’ll be able to do the same for your new clients.
This course is perfect for:

- Graphic designers wanting to learn how to code their own website designs
- Web developers wanting to break-free from cookie-cutter, ready-made WordPress themes
- VA’s or PA’s wanting to confidently and competently update their clients’ websites and implement more sophisticated digital strategy

The course is so meticulously detailed and practical that our students graduate with invaluable life skills.

But the surprising outcome is that they are building a lifestyle that empowers them to work on their own terms.
Course starts Monday October 19, 2015 and runs through Friday December 11, 2015
