If you’re using MailChimp’s marketing automation platform to send and track your newsletters and other email campaigns, you know MailChimp can send you all sorts of updates: the status of a campaign send, new subscribers (Yay!), unsubscribes (Boo! Hiss!), profile updates, etc. But those alerts can create a lot of email clutter in your inbox. And if you’re already working with your team in Glip, you don’t want to have to keep jumping out of the app to check your email to see what’s happening with a MailChimp campaign.
So here’s some great news: With Glip’s MailChimp integration, you can have your MailChimp alerts delivered right into your Glip communication stream. This way you and your team can keep up-to-date on your campaigns and marketing efforts without ever having to leave Glip.
This means you and your team:
Quickly and easily share updates sent directly to your Glip account.
Save yourself the time and frustration of jumping in and out of your Glip workspace throughout the day to check for MailChimp-related email alerts.
Reduce email clutter
Cut down on email, because you won’t need MailChimp emailing you a record of every new subscriber or profile update when you’re pulling those updates into Glip.
After you’ve integrated your MailChimp account into Glip (we’ll walk you through the quick process below), you can customize which events you and your team receive.
Glip can notify you when someone subscribes to your list from a MailChimp campaign.
Glip can notify you when someone opts out of your list from a MailChimp campaign.
Glip can notify you when your MailChimp campaign is pushed out to your list.
If you already have a MailChimp account, the process is easy and will take just a minute.
Click on the Integrations heading on the left pane of your Glip dashboard.
That will bring up the Available Integrations page in your dashboard’s center pane, and from there you can click on MailChimp. The interface you’ll see in the center pane will look like this:
You can also click on the gear settings icon next to any of your People or Teams, which will bring up a drop-down menu. From there, you can click Add Integration.
The app will then ask you to Add MailChimp Integration to an existing conversation in your Glip workspace or to create a new team to deliver your MailChimp updates.
After you’ve selected a Glip conversation or created a new Glip team for your MailChimp events, you’ll be taken to a MailChimp authentication page asking for your permission to let Glip notifications pull events into Glip from your account. That screen will look like this:
Now that your Glip and MailChimp accounts have shaken hands and said hello, you’ll have the chance to specify which types of MailChimp events you want to add to your Glip communication streams.
(Note: You can change which notifications you want pulled in to your Glip account anytime by clicking Integrations in the left pane and accessing MailChimp in the My Integrations area of your Glip workspace.)
Now you can view, share, and respond to your MailChimp updates without having to leave Glip.
And the best part?
MailChimp integration is free to all Glip users.
