MailPoet Add New List and Segment Settings tutorial shows you how to add and or edit a list or segment in your site.

In this tutorial you are going to learn how to add or edit a new list and segment. This is very straight forward to implement. Some features require a premium account. Creating the correct lists in your site is very important from the very beginning. I recommend you spend a bit of time analysing what lists are needed in your site before you begin creating random lists.

The default two lists are a start and in some cases you probably won’t need any more at the beginning. Of course as your site grows in popularity, then you will probably need to add more lists.

What you need:
