  1. Thanks for the video Mike, very helpful.

  2. thanx to upload this video it was very godd for me & i want to say with my heart have a nice year dear friend or bro.

  3. Thanks for the tutorial! I had wordpress, I had mailchimp, but I didn't know how to put the two together. Now I can really connect with readers!

  4. Awesome video, simple and to the point. Thank you very much!

  5. hi mike is your mailchimp wp free version.  I just want to test out the free version.

  6. Really beneficial video, keep posting!

  7. Hi, Mike, thanks for your video. I have just to questions… First, when a new user complete the side back mailchimp widget, his registration will be both in mailchimp list and wp-users list? The second one is: if I put the widget in a pg. I call let see "register" the user will be register automatically in both mailchimp and wordpress users list. I being fighting with this and cant make it work… so, its preatty bad since no one is really registering in my site. I will like to have a link in the main menu in the main pg. that send the user to the registration pages designed and operated for mailchimp. Same goes for comments. THANKS for advice. I keep posting content for nobody to read. Exausting and frustraiting… It keeps me writing but… better if it can be usefull for someone. THANKS. Hope you have the time for helping me.

  8. Thank you… I'm a beginner. Where do I find my API (I don't even know what it is). Thanks!

  9. For those wondering where the "MailChimp for WordPress" is that Mike mentions in this video, it's this one: . The author now lists "ibericode" instead of my name, but I'm still the same author! 🙂

  10. Great video on MailChimp to WordPress! Thanks. 🙂

  11. Awesome tutorial thanks! But one thing. Now I try to subscribe to test that it is working and it gives me general error. Is there something else that needs to be set up with mailchimp to actually get your subscribe button to work?

  12. Great Tutorial, Thank you! I have a question, which may not be related to this video directly, but do you know how to show MailChimp newsletter content/excerpt automatically on wordpress sidebar?

  13. Thank you for this!! You made it so easy!

  14. I was wondering if there was a way to have this widget become a pop up for first time visitors to blog? Any help here?

  15. I already have a Signup for Newsletter on my WordPress Website but like Lisa Lotts, I am trying to get my blog already on my website to go out automatically to my lists? Is an RSS feed the only way to do it?

  16. This is going to sound silly, but if I install this MailChimp will it automatically send e-mail updates every time I publish a new blog post, or will this only create an e-mail list? I've tried this before with SumoMe and MailChimp (not the one for WordPress) and it just created a list, but didn't send automatic updates. Not helpful to me. Please advise.

  17. This is the best explanation I've found anywhere. Thank you. Only one problem is that I've set it up like you said, but it's only showing up in the bottom of my site and I don't know how to move it. At the bottom it's barely visible. 🙁

  18. Thank you! After a whole evening trying to put in a form from my mailchimp account with a code, you gave me a simple solution!

  19. Does it send automated post from my blog

  20. can't get connected with maichimp and my api

  21. Always good to see what other marketers are doing…

  22. Hi Mike,
    Can we integrate the Mailchimp form and send a html template with a website which is not developed using WordPress?

  23. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! So easy to follow!! You're making my site look great!!

  24. Thank you for sharing this valuable information on creating an e-mail list on your Word Press website using Mail Chimp. It was helpful.

  25. Thank-you. I have been trying to figure this out for ever… 🙂 Now I can work on my list.

  26. This video is wonderfully done Mike. Great work and thank you!

    As I'm the author of the MailChimp for WordPress plugin, please shoot me an email if you'd like a free license for the Pro version. 🙂

  27. Thanks Mike….,I wz having a hard time getting my news letter option to wrk. I kept coming up with a error message. U just saved me a Headache….I am New @ this building Websites, but I am learning

  28. This should not have been difficult, but watching a half dozen other tutorials, it was impossible.
    You, on the other hand, showed me exactly what I needed to know in 6 minutes.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

  29. Great Video!  How do you get the system to email the person automatically with a pdf file or site address to get what you are enticing them with?  (ie. The Best 5 Questions to Ask a Hypnotherapist)

  30. What I am seeing in your video isn't matching up with what I'm seeing within my wordpress dashboard. I cannot find a plugins option at all. What am I missing? 

  31. Wonderful tutorial. Thank you very much. I was wondering if you had a tutorial for having two subscriptions.  I would like a subscribe to newsletter on my home page, but a subscribe to my blog on my posts. Thank you! 

  32. hi there Mike, i dont see the plugins button on the dashboard that you mentioned.  please advise.  thanks!

  33. Thank you this was super helpful. So appreciative! So much easier to use when there are clear instructions like this! Thanks Mike! 🙂 

  34. How you doing i'm just learning ok after the opt in page what's next after you sign up i want to know about the back end

  35. I have this error when I key in API.
    HTTP Error: There are no HTTP transports available which can complete the requested request.

    How to solve?
