Time Warp is a free service for up to 500 subscribers. It allows you to set up e-mail campaigns based on a recipient’s time zone. Just pick the time of day you want your message/campaign to begin, and it will start at the same local time in every time zone on earth. This feature is possible due to a MailChimp geolocation service which allows them to find the location and time zone of your subscribers, and then send a targeted campaign to all subscribers within a 150 mile radius around any point on the globe. In addition, Time Warp allows you to check your MailChimp account to see how many members of your list are in each time zone and see if their e-mail has been delivered or check how your campaign is doing by hovering over each time zone.
The Delivery Doctor
The Delivery Doctor analyzes your e-mail, running a plethora of tests, and then lets you know why you are being blocked, along what you need to do to fix it. Some of the tests ran are: subject lines, email content, and images. The results and any recommendations will be e-mailed to you. However, keep in mind that this diagnosis option is only available to users on the paid plans.
