Personalized Emails with Mailchimp in 3 minutes

Email campaigns are one of the most popular ways to reach subscribers and customers. Generic emails are useful for general announcements or new product updates, but they don't create any emotional connection between you and the email recipient.

Personalized images are a powerful way to connect with your customers on a personal level. Tailoring the images of your emails to include the recipient's name, organization name or other personal details allows you to give them an experience that they are sure to enjoy.

Check how to send personalized email campaigns with Mailchimp and RenderForm.io image generator in 3 simple steps!
