MailChimp is an online email marketing service for managing contacts, sending emails, and tracking results of your team's email campaigns.
With the MailChimp app for Beacon, you can keep the two systems in-sync - so there's no need for CSV uploads and manual data entry. And importantly - it means you won't accidentally email someone who's opted out of email communications.
When someone subscribes to your list in MailChimp, their details (email, first name, last name) are automatically added as a person in Beacon.
Sync your opt-outs
When someone unsubscribes from your list in MailChimp, the "Email" channel is automatically removed from the "Contact Preferences" field on the corresponding record in Beacon.
Similarly, when "Email" is removed from the "Contact Preferences" field in Beacon, you don't have to also unsubscribe them in MailChimp - we'll do that for you.
You can set up the MailChimp app for Beacon in minutes.
1) Navigate to the apps directory in your Beacon dashboard, and click Install on the MailChimp app.
2) Next, you need to connect your MailChimp account with Beacon:
3) After connecting, you can choose the MailChimp lists you'd like to monitor, and some other settings. Usually the pre-filled settings are fine for most organisations.
4) Click Save Integration. That's it, you're done!
