Put the popular MailChimp email platform to work for you, whether you've inherited an account or are starting to send emails for the first time. Virginia O'Connor will help you set up and import subscriber lists, and use groups, segments, and subscriber profiles to target your messaging for different types of audiences. Then learn how to use and customize email templates, test your email before you hit Send, and review your campaign results. Virginia will also show how to tailor your sign-up form, integrate with social media, and engage subscribers in creative ways that encourage them to open your emails and respond to calls to action. And, if you find your subscriber list grows beyond the 2,000-address limit imposed in the free app, check out the tutorials where Virginia shows you how to upgrade to the paid version of MailChimp, which contains one of its most useful features: autoresponders.

Authored By: Paul Taggart

Released On: 8/6/2014

Oftentimes when you're traveling, you stumble upon a gem of a place or a person who deserves to have a story told. But you can't spend a week or even a day shooting them. You're on the road. You've got an hour to take shots that convey something of the story, and then it's back behind the wheel. Or back on to the cruise ship. Or back to your family.

In this course, photojournalist Paul Taggart rises to the challenge and shoots a photo essay in only an hour. Shooting under time pressure is a common challenge for a photojournalist, and Paul describes the kinds of planning and shooting that gets results. Learn what kinds of shots you'll need for any type of photo essay, and learn how to engage and interact with subjects who you just met and might never see again.
