After establishing your newsletter on MailChimp, you require a subscribed following in order for people to see your generated content. However, you may already have a list of old subscribers you wish to add to your new list. If this is true, this tutorial will go over how to import users into MailChimp lists. This tutorial assumes that you already possess a MailChimp account. To set yours up today, check out our blog post here.

Once your list is complete, select “Import List” and these users are now added to your MailChimp List.

Each app is essentially the same process. When starting to use MailChimp, or just to simply import users to a specific list, we encourage you to follow the above steps.
