As a MailChimp user, we value your feedback and think it’s important for you to have an easy way to share your thoughts with us. Frankly, it’s where we get all our ideas, so we don’t just “value” your feedback–we need your feedback. That’s why we set up The Jungle, our private customer community on the Ning platform, a few years ago. For a while there, private social networks like this were growing pretty common. Now, they’re quickly becoming a thing of the past, and we’ve decided to adapt accordingly.
At its core, mediafeedia is a content management system for Facebook that allows you to manage your business pages, schedule posts and interact with your customers. But it also provides a powerful tool for creating, delivering and tracking special offers through Facebook. That means you can create a special offer landing tab for your business page, collect opt-in email addresses when people sign up for your promotion, and then seamlessly import them into MailChimp once the user confirms opt-in.
I recently read an interesting post by Andrew Blakeley, who tackled a one-week challenge to like every brand that asked him to (on Facebook of course). The experiment was borne out of the frustration that brands and marketers seem to be constantly asking us to find them on Facebook, yet they rarely offer a reason for us to do so.
Yesterday we hit a pretty special milestone here at MailChimp HQ, and to celebrate we gave away lots and lots of MailChimp goodies. Thirteen thousand items, in fact. One million users is a great accomplishment, but we certainly couldn’t have done it without all of you. So thank you, from the bottom of our warm, furry little chimp hearts. You really are one in a million! *wink*
Liquidating thirteen thousand items– including MailChimp tshirts, monkey hats and plushies– is no small feat. But to do it in just 18 minutes and via the internet? Now that is impressive.
