For well over 2,000 years, humans have used mail to communicate with one another. The first known example was found in Egypt and dates back to 255 BC. Mail made many strides over the centuries, from personal mailboxes to prepaid postage to international delivery systems. In the 90’s, email came along and disrupted how we communicated. It wasn’t long before we could email each other pictures, audio files and videos. By the early 2000’s, companies were using email to stay connected with their audiences – mainly in the form of newsletters. However, the process of creating and distributing mass emails was tedious. This problem gave birth to MailChimp, an email platform that is now used by more than 10 million people across the globe.
