  2. I don’t think this is possible…but can you tell me…

    I have a separate list for people that follow an event I do in the summer. And I post in the summer about this event. I know that some of the people on my event list are also on my main email list. My main email list is set to email whenever a new post comes out. My event list I send info to about the event…but I would like to have it also send out updates of when a post specific to the event is out. (I always put them in a specific category.) I don’t want the event list people that are also on the main list to get the same email twice, meaning, the email that an event post was posted. I was thinking I could use segments somehow to filter the people that are on both lists. Perhaps in my main list, I could segment the people that are also on the event list….I suppose I’d have to make the event list a segment of the main list if I did that. But the part I really cannot figure out is how to filter the post categories.

    Is there a way for Mailchimp to filter posts coming from my blog from a specific category and NOT repeat those posts to the people in the event list?? I feel like it’s not possible…that filtering categories of posts in Mailchimp isn’t possible…but I’d like to confirm so I can stop driving myself crazy trying to find out if I can or not. OR if it is possible…can you tell me how??

    I hope this makes sense…it’s very convoluted, I know! 🙂

    1. Hi Tina,

      Your question makes total sense, however the best place to get the answer will be MailChimp’s support.

      Based on their help page, it looks like you should be able to avoid this by using a single mailing list with segments/groups (rather than separate lists).

      But if you need additional clarification, their team should be able to assist further! 🙂
