LeadPages Mailchimp Integration: Setting up Groups and Segments

ARVE Error: Mode: lazyload is invalid or not supported. Note that you will need the Pro Addon for lazyload modes.

You are wondering, is it possible to use LeadPages Mailchimp Integration to set up groups or segments without creating multiple lists?

The answer is yes!

Not only can do LeadPages and MailChimp integrate seamlessly (at least to my experience) but you can also do some very powerful marketing things like:

  • Allow people to subscribe to different lists
  • Organize subscribers to mailing list segments
  • Assign tags to subscribers based on which landing page they signed up on

Pretty cool huh? Let’s dive right into it and find out how it’s done.

I am delighted to share with you the video my company created with Mayor Warren and three prominent business leaders in the Newton area.

The video features:

How To Make Espresso At Home The Inexpensive Way

How to make espresso: double espressoEverybody wants to know how to make espresso at home. Especially now that it has become quite expensive to buy coffee on the road. The price of a coffee at Starbucks can go from a couple dollars to 4 or even 5. And that’s for a single cup of coffee! At the same time, Dunkin Donuts can also be pricey and most of the times their coffee is over-brewed to the point that it’s burned.

But, my friends, rejoice. I went on a quest to find how to make espresso at home and I came back victorious. Now, I’m here to share with you my experiments and show you how to make the perfect brew of espresso at home.

Oh, and by the way, I’m not using those expensive single-serve coffee machines like Nespresso or Keurigg. Even though the convenience is very welcome, they are still quite expensive, they produce A LOT of waste, and I am very limited to the choices of coffee flavors I can brew.

In this article we will talk exclusively about manual espresso machines, whole espresso beans, and the necessary tools for enjoying the perfect brew at home.

stop Google Analytics from tracking your own visits

The Best iPhone 5 Screen Protector Sold Online (review)

iphone 5 screen protectorI was recently looking for a new iPhone 5 screen protector since the first one I got from the store when I purchased my phone got ruined.

I visited a few retail stores but when I saw the price tags I was quickly discouraged. I couldn’t find anything below $20 and that was just for one screen protector. I knew Amazon was waiting.

Right then and there, I took out my phone and found the cheapest iPhone screen protector that matched my cell’s model, had the best reviews and was Prime-eligible. There were quite a few choices available (and definitely cheaper than $20!)

My Favorite Screen Protector

I chose the Tech Armor Brand for these reasons:

  • They offer a full line of product, so I was sure they are not a hit-or-miss business
  • Their products have a ton of reviews: the iphone 5 screen protector had more than 230 reviews at the time of purchase which made me quite confident
  • The items were Prime eligible which means I had to pay nada for 2-day delivery
  • I was buying 3 screen protectors for a ridiculous $6.95 (not $20 or $30!) door-delivered!

What was the obvious thing to do?

Save 30 Minutes Every Day on Email Responses and Followups

I just hate repetitive tasks. They not only waste my time, but also frustrate me to the point where I loose my patience and focus. And when I say that, the first thing that comes in mind is writing or replying to emails of similar context. For example, sending a notification that an invoice is due, or a thank you note for my loyal creative marketing customers. This was the beginning of my quest to find a solution that would automate my email communications.
