Integrate SMS sending and receiving with MailChimp – plugin
MailChimp is one of the leading online Email providers and you can now integrate your lists with Text Marketer’s SMS platform.
This provides you with 2 main advantages;
- Use the power of short code marketing to allow people to join your MailChimp list! You get a free keyword on our 88802 short code which allows people to text in and join your email list.
- You can instantly send an SMS, via Text Marketer, to any lists in your MailChimp account.
Text Marketer uses direct UK connections for ultimate reliability and if you request it we can also allow European and worldwide bulk SMS.
- First, create a free Text Marketer account and use the promo code CHIMP, then we will add in 100 SMS credits for free!
- Log in to your Messagebox account. Go to Manage Contacts and then drop down the Your Data button on the Import section in the top menu. Choose Mailchimp. Then complete the API details (how to generate an API key in Mailchimp) and other information in the Mailchimp box. That’s it, you’re all integrated.
(IF YOU ARE USING THE OLD TEXT MARKETER ACCOUNT ONLY …. Connect your MailChimp account with your Text Marketer account using an API key. It only takes a few minutes or so. Download our MailChimp integration PDF document (2mb))
MailChimp users’ comments so far;
- “Awesome. This is a great way to allow people to join your MailChimp list by texting in and it doesn’t cost a penny to set it up and receive subscribers by SMS”
- “At last. I’ve always wanted to use Text Marketer with my MailChimp because their prices are low. Now it’s integrated, it’s a simply point and click operation and all my data stays in one place. Thanks guys”
- “Your service works great thank you very much!”
- by John Partridge; “This is really good. I wanted a way that people could join my MailChimp lists by text message and Text Marketer provide a free code system that enables this. Although I was mainly looking for this it turns out you can easily send out SMS’s too using there platform and integrate your lists and their text prices are really low. All in all – a tremendous find. Well done MailChimp and Text Marketer!”
- by Emma Parker; “Completely agree with John here. I was so glad I found this. It’s so hard to get people to join your list from advertising so allowing them to text in and join has almost doubled the response rates we get from our adverts. It’s also very easy to send out an SMS which is also proving to be more responsive. Excellent. Thanks.”
