You are now ready to create lists and send your first campaign! (A campaign is what MailChimp calls each email message you send to your subscribers.)

So now you are ready to send your first email campaign. But who will be receiving your communication?

A list must be created before you can send your first campaign or create a subscribe form to place on your website. Email addresses can be manually added or imported, but people need to opt-in or subscribe to your list.
