MailChimp Is A Great Tool To Send Email Newsletters

Share:
One of the common problems JotForm users encounter is to send newsletter emails to people who previously filled their forms. There are really great tools to send emails, and one of them is MailChimp.


Mailchimp is a great tool to send beautiful newsletters or announcements to your web site users and customers. So, instead of implementing a newsletter feature ourselves, we decided to integrate with them.

So, how can you start using MailChimp integration? Easy! Simply click on the new Integrations button we added to the Setup & Embed toolbar.


Then follow the wizard steps.


One of the great things about our MailChimp integration is that it can add your existing data to your newsletter list. So, in minutes you will be ready to send newsletters to your visitors.

Set Mailchimp up, i to send the information directly to a Opt-in mail

 

Allow the user to decide if she wants to be added to the Opt-in list by using a Send If Choice is checked , so this will work  if a check box into the form is ticked



MailChimp is free up to 2,000 subscribers. So, even if you don’t have an existing account, you should give them a try. Send your users a newsletter and remind them about your web site.

Happy Newsletter Sending Day!

    Am excited to test this out. Especially since I have "GROUPS" set up in my Mail Chimp account, main database... I assume I can direct a specific form to a specific group, which would trigger a specific AutoResponder?

  • markashton

    The timing is sublime as I mentioned it no more than an hour or so ago. Have you guys developed it within an hour? I look forward to your aweber integration before teatime.
    Thanks a lot
    Regards Mark

  • fastlanetravel

    Since we've likely already sent things to our existing list... can we set the integration to start from here forward?

  • Larah

  • carlosfarnesi

  • protogama

    First screen I get is 'Enter your API key for MailChimp', not 'Choose a list'. Where to get the key?

  • Floridamasters

    This is crap man doesn't even work, I select the list I want, then click next and nothing happens.

    FIXXXX asapp

  • worldbusinesshome

  • clicksem

    api key can be taken from mailchimp.com after registiration. click on your nick name at the right top corner of the site then click "API Keys & Authorized Apps" and click "Add a Key"..it gives a long long key...

  • maivutan

  • BethDavid

    Will you be integrating with Constant Contact?

  • MEGSSS

    How quickly does the MailChimp integration happen?

  • GianmarcoTv

    NO TENGO IDEA PARA QUE SIRVE ESE CHIMPANCÉ CUANDO TENGA MAS CONOCIMIENTOS DE ELLO LO USARE SOLO SI ES CONVENIENTE,

  • jumpstartnyc

    It would be great if it can be integrated with constant contact as well.

  • OlivierWaubant

    good idear

  • alliphil

    If you're thinking about more integrations, would love it integrated with 1ShoppingCart as well. Thanks for continuously improving!

  • blacksonville

    Love it when a plan comes together.

  • mkristi

    This looks cool.

  • discoverychurch

    First off, I am excited to see this in place. However, I (and I imagine lots of larger users) need the option to designate to a specific list group(s) in MailChimp based off of a form entry.

    *for example: We have three specific locations, all using the same form. Our form is set up to respond based on a selection of which location. I need a way to have that location or (group) be sent to MailChimp as well.

  • vaporsky

    Can visitors/users of a certain form only be added to a Mailchimp list if the visitor/user says it's ok? For example, it only adding them to a Mailchimp list if they have checked a check box that asks them if they would like to receive our newsletter, and not add them if they do not check the box.

  • vinautomatic

    YES, another reason why this totally rocks any other form solution out there :)

  • spcafc

    Integration with Vertical Response would be great too!

  • micah pauldino

    ive set up everything correctly and nothing pops up in my mail chimp

  • therapeutes

    Hello nice integration! But how do you do when creating a checkbox and transfer the data to the Groups created into Chimp? Thanks for your answer

  • ywammadison

    Wonderful! I agree with a previous poster about integration with Vertical Response!

  • khterhp

    naissssssssssss

  • christinabruce

    I am having the same issue. Jotform is accepting the people signing up but never makes it to MailChimp.

  • christinabruce

    I have everything set up properly. When I entered the API JotForm showed my list on MailChimp and when I a test subscribed add it works on JotForm side because I received the email of a new subscriber but nothing imports into MailChimp.

  • olay

    The integration only recognises 2 fields which are Name and email. However, I have other fields which are very important for segmentation purpose such as Interests and Postcode - How do I get these data in Mailchimp?

  • Jeo

    Very nice! browser apps really get the upperhand now ^^

  • Tejeringoelchimuelo

    ESE CHIMPACE SIRVE PARA LLEVAR EL CORREO PERSONALMENTE YO LO HE VISTO POR LAS CALLES DE MI CIUDAD TODOS LOS DIAS.

  • guest_22896325570056
