Mailchimp Bans NicheFacts

Mailchimp Banned

Mailchimp banned NicheFacts, an online resource that helps people create online businesses. Ryan Nelson, the founder, wrote the following regarding his account termination:

What it boils down to is that this site,, which is technically in the notorious ‘make money online’ space, had autoresponder emails that contained keywords that presumably triggered an automated review/suspension of my account.

Later in the article, Nelson pointed out the danger of using a platform that uses automated account termination such as Mailchimp did in this case:

This sort of automated termination is a real red flag- I would never have felt comfortable building my online business on the back of a platform that is so cavalier with account suspension.
