Optimising your website’s signup process is a must if you want to attract and retain more customers. One way to achieve this is to allow users to subscribe to your MailChimp lists when they sign up on your WordPress site. This will enable you to send them timely updates, promotions, and other information that they can find interesting. Doing so will help you increase customer engagement, which in turn can lead to more sales, and better brand awareness.
