  1. Hey Ravi,

    Thanks for the simple guide. It is always better to move to a trusted email service provider. When I started blogging, I was using jetpack, but due to some limitations, I moved to MailChimp.

    I had to figure it on my own, but now your article will help many new bloggers to properly transfer from Jetpack to MailChimp.

    1. Hey Shafi,

      Jetpack is a useful plugin with many options but when you switch to the professional network then you would need to send the custom template with the emails.

      MailChimp provides its users the freedom to design their own template. You just have to use the CSV file generated from the WordPress admin panel.

      Thanks for the support.
      Enjoy your day.

    1. Hi Bren,

      It’s up to you whether you choose MailChimp or any other platform. The main point is to download the file from the WordPress admin area.
      Thanks for stopping by.
      Enjoy your day.
