Automatic Email Updates Setup!

I just finished setting up a MailChimp automatic newsletter. This way folks can sign up from our website, then be notified of news that we post to this website.

Here’s how I did it:

  • I installed and activated the WordPress plugin MailChimp for WordPress
  • I signed up for a free account from MailChimp.com
  • Created a MailChimp API key
  • Added it to the plugin’s settings and saved
  • Added the MailChimp signup form as a widget (so it will appear at the bottom of every page of the website)
  • Added the MailChimp signup form using a shortcode to the top of the homepage
  • Followed the tutorial from WPForms for creating a newsletter from an RSS feed.

Now, with any luck, I should receive an email tomorrow morning from this post!
