Setting up an email newsletter using MailPoet is a great way to keep your subscribers updated on your latest content, products, or news. In this article, I’ll walk you through the steps of setting up an email newsletter using the MailPoet plugin.
What Is MailPoet?
MailPoet is a WordPress-compatible email marketing solution. It contains a drag-and-drop builder that makes creating bespoke email newsletters simple. If you’ve used drag-and-drop landing page builders like SeedProd, MailPoet will be a breeze.
I used to use Mailchimp for many years, but the fees are getting absurd. Then I discovered MailPoet and EmailOctupus—incredible tools!—iwhich I started using for my company, Poemify Publishers. It connects with your WordPress site more than any other email campaign manager.
According to the official statement on MailPoet.com, more than 600,000 websites are using MailPoet to keep in touch with their subscribers. You can enjoy everything in one place. MailPoet works seamlessly with your favorite CMS so you can start sending emails right now. No need to upload files to third-party services when it’s all right there, ready to use in your WordPress dashboard.

Once you’ve installed and activated MailPoet, you’ll need to set up your newsletter. Navigate to the ‘MailPoet’ tab in your WordPress dashboard and click on ‘Create a newsletter’. Choose a title for your newsletter and select the list you want to send it to.

Once you’ve created your subscription form, you’ll need to add it to your website. You can do this by using a shortcode, widget, or block. MailPoet provides instructions on how to add your subscription form to your website in the ‘Forms’ tab of your WordPress dashboard.
Step 6: Send your newsletter
Now that your subscription form is on your website, you can start collecting subscribers and sending your newsletter.
