Easily Sync Your SimpleTexting Account With Mailchimp
Our Mailchimp integration makes combining email and text marketing as easy as possible.
It works by synchronizing your Mailchimp and SimpleTexting contact lists. All you have to do is connect your Mailchimp account through our handy app. Choose your list(s), map the fields, hit sync and—done!
Make It Possible to Subscribe to Emails by SMS
Do you use keywords to collect phone numbers? Use our data collection app to prompt new subscribers to provide their email addresses, too. Follow along with a step-by-step video here. After someone replies with their email, it will be instantly synced with Mailchimp.
Collect Phone Numbers Through Mailchimp Forms
It’s easy to collect phone numbers directly from your Mailchimp forms! All you have to do is add an additional field for phone numbers. With our integration enabled, your subscribers’ numbers will be passed automatically from Mailchimp to SimpleTexting.
You can also enable double opt-in. This way, you can be sure you’re only texting interested customers. After someone enters their phone number, we’ll send them a text confirmation. To confirm their subscription, they just need to reply Y or YES.
Alternatively, you can choose a standard confirmation text which will be sent along with your first campaign. Here’s what that looks like:

How to Sync SimpleTexting and MailChimp
Let’s take a closer look at the syncing sequence to give you a better idea of this integration in action! Once you open the Mailchimp app on your SimpleTexting dashboard, you’re prompted to log in to your account.
Once you’re in, you’ll need to add a new sync to get started. Each “Sync” will link together a SimpleTexting subscriber list and a Mailchimp subscriber list—like the one below that combines internal communication contact lists for both platforms.
To verify your sync was complete, you can go into your ‘Subscribers’ tab and select the list you merged with. Under the opt-in method column, any contacts from the merge will be classified as coming from Mailchimp!
