I quit for tonight. I have worked for HOURS trying to set up an automated email system, first with Get Response and then with Mail Chimp, with no success. I have built two websites, been accepted by several affiliates and google adsense, changed HTML coding, added images, tags, alt, and on and on, but this email stuff has got me whipped.
I try to personalize a download free ebook page in Get Response or build a newsletter template and the text box refuses to let me type text here, and their directions do not match my screen. Frustrated, I went to Mailchimp.
That's when I my email wouldn't go through for verification. Finally, hours later, it did. Success! Then I received HTML code with no idea what to do with it. Took a break to care for house and family.
Back to Get Response, read a bunch of how-to info. Still won't let me add text to anything. And now Mailchimp says it has to verify my website again, and again the email is not going through.
Time to stop and clear my head. This should not be this difficult. So maybe tomorrow i can get back to it, but I have family obligations so it may be a day or two. I pray I've absorbed some key point and it will all be clear to me then. If not, I'll be screaming for HELP!
Have a blessed weekend, Everyone...
