How to Get Notified When People Subscribe to your Mailchimp Email List

UPDATED Aug 21, 2019

It may not seem important, but getting notified when people subscribe or unsubscribe to your email list is very essential.

What triggered your subscriptions? If you know what’s going right, you can do more of it.

Subscribes are motivating! People like you and want to hear from you! Seeing the subscribes come in will encourage you to write blog posts and send emails.

If you have people unsubscribe after an email you don’t want to send an email like that again.

Here’s how to turn on subscribe and unsubscribe notifications

For accounts with Lists

Go to your Mailchimp dashboard. Click on Audiences.
