When people talk about email marketing platforms, MailChimp is usually one of the first names to come up. Not only is it one of the most popular options around, but it also happens to be highly intuitive. Plus, it comes with a robust autoresponder functionality that can make short work of your campaigns.

MailChimp autoresponders – or ‘automations’ – can enable you to set up complex campaigns that will work for you even if you don’t have the time to micromanage them. In this article, we’ll talk about what autoresponders are, what makes them useful, and how to set them up using MailChimp in three steps. Let’s get started!

What an Autoresponder Is (And Why They’re Essential for Your Marketing Efforts)

An autoresponder is an email (or multiple emails in succession) that a user receives once they sign up to an email list or perform a certain action (such as purchasing a product). You set them up ahead of time, configure how much time should go by between each message, and then sit back and monitor your campaign’s performance .

Here’s a sneak peek of MailChimp’s autoresponder section.

The key benefit of this feature is obvious: you don’t have to worry about sending out emails manually, since a tool like MailChimp takes care of itfor you. Furthermore, you get to focus more on building up a relationship with your subscribers and fine-tuning your content.

Naturally, not every aspect of an email campaign can be automated, and chances are you’ll need to jump in from time to time to tweak your existing emails and create new ones. However, that doesn’t make autoresponders any less attractive from a marketing (and timesaving) standpoint.

Before showing you how to setup autoresponder emails of your own, let’s explore MailChimp in a little more detail.

Plenty of you are probably already familiar with MailChimp; we’ve both reviewed the service and included it in our latest roundup of top-notch email marketing platforms .

For those of you new to the world of email marketing, however, MailChimp enables you to create stylish email campaigns and manage your subscribers with ease. You also get access to top-notch analytics, and you can do it allstarting with a free plan.

When it comes to autoresponders, MailChimp offers a suite of automations as part of its premium plans. You can set up regular autoresponders for new users and those that abandon shopping carts, among other options.

Price: Free, with premium plans available | More Information


As we mentioned earlier, MailChimp autoresponders are only available to premium subscribers. If you’re using a free MailChimp account, you’ll need to upgrade it if you want to access this feature.
