  1. Sign up for a FREE Mailchimp account.
  2. Set up your Merge Fields:
    Audience Dashboard -> Settings -> Audience fields and *|MERGE|* tags
  3. You should configure this page so that it matches up with the columns in the audience files that you will be importing.
  4. THe Merge Fields should be in the same order as columns in the imported file(s).
  5. You can also add any useful fields that are present in the imported file(s) and remove unused fields.
  6. Use the Data Type of "Website" if you're adding a field that contains a link (URL).
  7. This screen also ties with Tag names that you will be able to use in your email campaign templates.
  8. If you do the above prior to importing, then when you perform your audience imports (Audience -> Add Contacts -> Merge -> File) the Merge Field mapping will be streamlined / automatic.
  9. Remember to tag your imports with the Tool and Industry used to prospect the audience!
