Quick overview

Welcome to MailerLite! Let’s get started so you can send out your first email campaign as soon as possible. In this video, we’ll give you a quick overview of MailerLite and its basic features.

The first thing you will see when you open MailerLite is the dashboard. It's designed to give you a quick overview of your statistics such as the subscriber growth, your current plan, open rates, click stats and more.

The Campaigns section is where you will be creating your newsletters. You’ll have the choice between different campaign types such as: A/B testing, Auto Resend, RSS Campaigns or Basic Campaigns.

The Subscribers section allows you to upload your subscribers. Here you can create, segment and monitor different groups and their stats. You can also filter for specific subscribers and save the search results as a segment..

In the Forms section, you can create your signup forms, set single or double opt-in and customize your thank you messages and confirmation emails. You can also get the links for the online sign up form version and get the code to implement the embedded version.

The Automation section is the place where you will be creating automated emails, such as autoresponders and workflows (email sequences).

In the Plan and billing section, you can upgrade to a monthly or yearly plan.

The Help section will show all the help articles around the topic of the page you’re currently on. If you’re in the plan and billing section, you’ll see all the FAQs around payments and plans.

The heart icon is where you can refer MailerLite to your friends and colleagues. Any credits you’ve received from your highly-appreciated efforts will be shown here.
