What is Mailchimp?

Mailchimp is a marketing automation platform that makes it easy to reach your customers online. Create email campaigns, surveys, sign-up forms, landing pages, and more.

Why integrate Mailchimp and SimpleTexting?

With our Mailchimp integration, you can combine your email and text marketing efforts. In just minutes, you can effortlessly sync your lists across the two platforms. 

After that, you can collect phone numbers with Mailchimp and pass them to SimpleTexting. Or, you can collect emails with SimpleTexting and pass them to Mailchimp.

Mailchimp SMS integration benefits

Email and text message marketing are both effective communication channels, but they have different strengths. When you bring them together, you get:

  • Increased reach. According to Mailchimp, emails have an average open rate of 27%. SMS has an average open rate of 98%. Both can help you connect with your customers and guarantee they never miss a message from you.
  • Improved customer experience. Some customers prefer to receive messages from brands they love via email, while others prefer texts. By offering both options, you can cater to your customers’ preferences and encourage higher engagement (like click-throughs and responses).
  • Better conversion rates. The more your target audience is exposed to your brand, the more chances they’ll have to consider and purchase your products or services. Omnichannel marketing campaigns can help you access email’s average conversion rate of 3% and SMS’s average conversion rate of 45%.

Email and SMS marketing together can be a powerful strategy for businesses that want to reach their target audience, increase engagement, and improve conversion rates.

Easily sync your SimpleTexting contacts with Mailchimp

Our Mailchimp integration makes combining email and text 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 you’re done. 

Invite SMS contacts to subscribe to your emails with data collection

Using our built-in Data Collection tool, you can prompt new text contacts to provide their email addresses (and other relevant details) to join your email list. After someone replies with their email, it will instantly sync with Mailchimp.

Collect Phone Numbers Through Mailchimp SMS Marketing Forms

Collect phone numbers through Mailchimp SMS marketing forms

To collect phone numbers in Mailchimp, all you have to do is add a phone number field to an existing form. Your contacts’ numbers will automatically be imported into SimpleTexting.

Double opt-in

After someone enters their phone number, we’ll send them a text confirmation. Your contacts just need to reply Y or YES to confirm their subscription.

Confirmation text

You can create a standard confirmation text which will be sent along with your first campaign. Your contacts can reply HELP for help or STOP to cancel.

Web form

Use MailChimp SMS marketing forms to collect mobile numbers and have them trigger SimpleTexting SMS autoresponders (automated SMS drip campaigns).

“By using your Mailchimp integration, we were able to sync our contacts into our SimpleTexting profile. We continued to email daily updates on our event, but honestly, we found texting was the most efficient way to fill newly opened tables in real time.”

MailChimp text messaging FAQs

Still have a few questions? We get it. Take a look at some of the most common questions we hear about our MailChhimp integration.

Can Mailchimp send SMS messages?

Mailchimp can send text messages, but only if you have a Mailchimp Store or use Mailchimp Appointment Scheduling.

When SMS is enabled, customers need to opt in (give permission) to receive your texts. You need a third-party text messaging service that integrates with Mailchimp to send text messages for other uses (like SMS marketing campaigns, a welcome series for new contacts, or collecting customer reviews).
Mailchimp can collect phone numbers when you use the forms feature and enable the phone number field.
With a third-party SMS marketing platform, you can run campaigns, manage contacts, and track the results from one dashboard. We integrate directly with Mailchimp, so you can import your contacts directly over to our platform and start sending marketing messages.
