by | Divi Tutorial | 17 comments

In this tutorial I want to share you how to integrate Divi Builder with your MailChimp account. Building an email list is one of the most important things that can grow your business. If you build a mailing list, you will have the opportunity to send them your news and offers directly to their email. In my opinion, one of the best platforms to collect emails and send marketing campaigns is MailChimp.
