Email marketing is the heart of marketing strategy from small to enterprise level. Mailchimp is the top email marketing platform designed to grow your business and improve overall sales. The platform helps you create highly professional email marketing campaigns without strenuous efforts.
Mailchimp helps add more subscribers as it helps create your opt-in forms and install them on your website or blog. Once leads subscribe to your list, you can nurture them with the best newsletters and drip email campaigns.
You can check the opening rates and test what works and what doesn’t. Mailchimp gives complete control over the marketing automation and allows you to engage with your contacts to convert and monitor the results.
Google contacts are not just a contact book; it allows auto-complete and connects with other Google products like Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Calendar. It enables you to manage the contacts in one place. You can create groups of contacts and segregate them based on your convenience.
