The Targeting Local CRM integration with Mailchimp allows you to use trigger rules to add and remove contacts from your mailing lists in Mailchimp. Get your Mailchimp API Key here. When your Mailchimp and Targeting Local CRM accounts have been linked, you can also set up field mapping between your Targeting Local CRM call log and your Mailchimp lists.
MailChip Integration Setup: 0:00 – 20:00 Min
MailChip Integration Setup
- Navigate to Settings → Integrations → Mailchimp.
- Enter your Mailchimp API key, then click Save Mailchimp API Key.
- If you wish to configure field mapping, use the “select list” drop-down to choose one of your Mailchimp contact lists.
- Once selected, the fields for the list will appear. Use the corresponding drop-down menus to select which Targeting Local CRM fields should be mapped to the fields from Mailchimp, then click Save Merge Field Settings. Repeat this process for any additional lists as needed.
Updating Mailchimp Lists with Triggers
Once the integration settings are completed, you can create triggers to automatically update your Mailchimp contact lists.
- From the Mailchimp settings page, click Manage Triggers (or navigate to Calls → Triggers).
- Click New Trigger (if you do not already have a trigger in your account, you will be automatically directed to the setup page).
