Workshop: Get Started with GDPR-Compliant Mailchimp Lists

Interested and ready to commit to attending on a convenient day? Help us schedule the next workshop: take this Doodle Poll to let us know when you’re available. 

Workshop Description:

Whether you’re still BCCing people when you e-mail your contacts or the GDPR has sent your mailing list(s) into a tailspin, this workshop is your opportunity to reclaim e-mail as a medium for marketing and communication.
Because social media is hit-and-miss when it comes to delivering information to your community, customers or clients, mailing lists are a valuable resource you don’t want to neglect. Find out how you can improve the quality and size of your list(s) while maintaining GDPR compliance – and make your email communication more engaging and effective than ever.
Attend the workshop from 11 am to 1 pm, and you’ll get a half day pass for MinorOak that you can use in the afternoon to work with other participants and get your mailing lists up and running. Alternatively, save the half day pass for later.
I’m Dee, the workshop leader. I own MinorOak Coworking, a bricks-and-mortar business in Sneinton Market. I’ve created effective, GDPR-compliant mailing lists that help publicise my events and offers and keep people who are interested in my business engaged. In the past, I’ve managed MailChimp lists for community organisations and my own online businesses.

Sign up for this workshop if you need to:

  • Learn or review MailChimp basics
  • Update your mailing list(s) and business records to comply with GDPR
  • Expand your new, smaller, GDPR-compliant mailing list by creating sign-up forms and landing pages
  • Keep fans of your business or organisation engaged and informed

This Workshop Includes:

  • A 2-hour workshop limited to six participants
  • A half-day pass for MinorOak Coworking (£8 value)
  • Coffee, tea and snacks

You can use the half-day pass on the day to work on your pitch with the other participants and instructor on hand for help and feedback – or save it and use it any time in the following month.

11am to 1pm: A two-hour workshop limited to six participants

1pm to 2pm:  Lunch hour: bring food or eat locally

2pm to 6pm:  Use your half-day pass and stay to finish your first project. (optional)

  • Getting proper permission to add people to your lists
  • Embedding list sign-ups in your website

Praise for New Business Intelligence Workshops

The workshop was fabulous. The facilities are great, your presentation covered all the bases and I came away with access to other really useful resources. The opportunity to put it all into practice in a shared work environment was icing on the cake.

I found the presentation very informative and useful and really enjoyed spending the afternoon working on my project. I had a really productive afternoon and got a lot more done than I would have if I was working at home.
