Intro to MailerLite for Email Marketing

After attending one of their meetings, I hope to continue and “get my feet on the ground” with Detroit area WordPress.

West Metro Detroit WordPress

Join us on June 19, 2018 for an exciting presentation about MailerLite by fellow West Metro Detroit WordPress member Anthony Wagner.

MailerLite is an email marketing application that integrates with WordPress, WooCommerce, and much more.

Similar to MailChimp, AWeber, and other email marketing apps, MailerLite offers small businesses, bloggers, digital marketers, and others a way to build and grow your mailing list.

One of the features MailerLite offers: a free plan for up to 1,000 subscribers.

Anthony will talk about the advantages of using MailerLite, step us through the basics, and show us how his account is configured.

Questions, suggestions, and discussion are welcome!

Whether you’re new to WordPress or have been working with it for several years, please join us.  If you use WordPress for marketing purposes or in connection with email, I’m sure you’ll find this meeting very interesting.

A New Beginning

True to the original purpose of this blog, today I am starting a systematic study of  WordPress itself. My site is the simplest, cheapest offered, but with Premium membership for access to a huge array of themes that I plan to experiment with. My purpose is to learn to use as many features and edits as possible, while sharing my thoughts on many topics.

First I want to thank all the WordPress “Happiness Staff” who have rescued and educated me, especially during the past year. What a team!

And now, to start my journal, I share what has made me happy today: the photo quality from my Samsung S7 Galaxy’s latest full upgrade:


I just can’t take my eyes off it! And to think it’s “just” a cell phone camera . . .

Until later,  Mary
