How to Use Wavelength

This feature requires Manager user level or higher.

Wavelength, powered by our Email Genome project, analyzes your list and quickly compares your subscribers to other publicly available lists to find subscriber overlap. Once analysis is complete, Wavelength displays screenshots of publicly available email campaigns with similar subscriber profiles. The goal of the application is to help you contact those other MailChimp users and form a relationship with each other. Ideally, you can link to each other and help each other grow your lists organically.

Lists with at least 100 double opt-in subscribers that have been used to send two or more campaigns to twenty or more subscribers can participate in Wavelength.
