Extra Step For Yoga Studios
Use the AutoChimp Plugin
If you own a yoga studio, you may want to set up several e-Newsletters by using the “AutoChimp plugin“. With AutoChimp, you can have your posts immediately sent to all of your subscribers, or a specific group of subscribers, as soon as you publish them.
For example if your studio teaches five different types of yoga classes such as: Kundalini, Vinyasa flow, Ashtanga, Restorative and Prenatal Yoga, then you can have five categories on your Blog called “Kundalini”, “Vinyasa flow”, “Ashtanga”, “Restorative” and “Prenatal Yoga”, create a separate e-Newsletter for each group and use AutoChimp to select the category posts each e-Newsletter will receive (e.g. the “Kundalini” e-Newsletter will be sent posts in your “Kundalini” blog category. This is all done on autopilot.
AutoChimp Getting Started Steps
1) Install AutoChimp plugin (search for autochimp within WordPress Plugins).
2) Save your MailChimp API Key on the options page.
3) Start adding your new registrations to any selected MailChimp mailing list.
4) Decide whether to configure the plugin to update your mailing list when: a) a new user subscribes, b) a user unsubscribes, or c) a user updates his information.
5) Decide to create campaigns automatically from post categories of your choosing.
6) Decide whether to send the campaign immediately or just save it for a rainy day.
