1) I’m moving our email list over to Mailchimp (I have heard great things about the service)
2) Mailchimp has proven that chosing your audience is very important to reaching potential customers… what better place to catch nerdy people who might need to promote their business with an email list? Merlin Man and Dan Benjamin? Yes… those are the right people.
Why’s it so good? Well… I’m not getting a red cent for linking to Mailchimp half a dozen times in my blog… I just really love what they made happen.
Also, if you are not listening to 5by5: Back to Work podcast and you care about productivity and using your time wisely and with passion… you should. It’s great. It’s funny. It’s inspiring and useful. Merlin Mann’s writing and videos were instrumental in the origin of Kink Engineering (Aka: Me leaving my day job and starting this crazy latex company)
Mailchimp wins the internet.
Sometimes There’s a Man (Part I)
Tune in each week for the next part of the album. We’re committed to doing four, but, personally, I’m happy doing one of these a week pretty much forever.
