Mailchimp is an all-in-one marketing platform that helps you share emails, ads, and other messages with your audience. We call these messages “campaigns.” When you create a campaign in Mailchimp, we give you lots of flexible settings and design options, as well as builder tools that walk you through every step of the process.
