Introducing MailerLite Academy: Your free online learning platform

Introducing MailerLite Academy: Your free online learning platform

Email Marketing Academy from MailerLite - Learning platform for email marketing expert certification | Product Hunt

First came Oxford and Cambridge. Centuries later—Harvard and Stanford. Today, the next generation of higher education has arrived and you’ve been accepted!

MailerLite Academy is our new online learning platform (and it’s free). We created it to help you jumpstart and sharpen your email marketing skills. This is your official acceptance letter!

Everyone who successfully completes the courses will receive a certificate recognizing them as an email marketing expert. That will look pretty good on your LinkedIn, right? 

The idea for MailerLite Academy came up thanks to our customers. We’re committed to helping them get the most out of MailerLite, and we realized that the right online courses could get people to the next level—and boost their businesses in the process! 

Who wants to become a certified email marketing expert?

For the past 8 months, we’ve been building practical, hands-on email marketing courses to help you get the most out of your campaigns. Now, the big day has come, and we’re thrilled to introduce you to MailerLite Academy

Let’s take a closer look at:

  • Our vision and goals for the Academy
  • The course content ( + our plans for upcoming courses)
  • How certification can help boost your career

We’re excited for you to grow your skill set, confidence and credibility in the email marketing industry! Who’s excited?


We dream big! Our goal is to provide the email marketing knowledge and practices you need to help you be the best you can be. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or you’re looking to brush up on your email marketing skills, our courses are designed for all levels. 

You’ll start with the MailerLite Fundamentals course covering the basics, before exploring the more advanced features, so you’ll never feel out of your depth. 

To help you along the way, we’ve also created a community of learners and experts who will support each other. As for the Academy community, we decided to give Slack a shot. We created private channels for each course and new enrollments will be added to the respective channels automatically. Students can ask questions in these channels and hopefully help each other.

The email marketing industry is growing faster than ever, and we want you to stay ahead of the game. Ready to hear about the first course?


Whilst we’d all love to stop everything and spend the day learning about email marketing and dreaming of the future, we lead busy lives! 

MailerLite Academy is designed to work with your schedule, so you can take the course in your own time. There’s no deadline, and you’ll have lifetime access, so you can learn at a pace that works for you. 

The MailerLite Academy website

The course is divided into modules, with videos to help you along. At the end of each module, you’ll take a quiz to consolidate what you’ve learned before you move on to the next one. 

At the end of the whole course, you’ll take a final exam, consisting of multiple-choice questions. To get your certificate, you need to pass with a 90% score. But don’t worry if you don’t get it the first time, you can always retake it!
