What Can I Do With the MailChimp Integration?
The Nimble + MailChimp Integration allows you to send contacts from Nimble to MailChimp to add them to an existing mailing list. This integration does not sync contacts from MailChimp to Nimble and we do not currently sync email stats to Nimble. This will come in a future update.
Set up your MailChimp account with Nimble (If you do not have a MailChimp account, sign up for free! https://mailchimp.com/signup/ )
Create your mailing list in Nimble
Select your set of contacts for your mailing list and select "Export" on the Contact list action bar.
A window will appear. Select in the dropdown, your desired list in MailChimp that you want to export your contacts to.
Nimble will send you a confirmation email that your contacts have been imported into MailChimp.
Send your marketing message in MailChimp
Once you've sent your contacts from Nimble to MailChimp, sign into MailChimp to send your campaign.
Common MailChimp Questions:
How do I locate my MailChimp API Key?
In MailChimp, go to Account >> Extras >> API Keys
2. Click create a key, or copy a current key.
3. In MailChimp, copy the API key to your clipboard. In Nimble, go to Settings >> Third Party Integrations >> MailChimp, select "Enable", and paste the API key in the "MailChimp API key" field and select Enable.
How do I View Recently Added Contacts in MailChimp?
View recently added contacts by going to your MailChimp list and then selecting "Manage Subscribers".
Select "Date Added" to check your most recently added subscribers.
Note: Anyone exporting from Nimble to MailChimp must be an administrator or manager in MailChimp. If they are not, they need to ask their MailChimp Administrator to adjust account privileges.
As of now, this direct integration is a one way sync. Nimble does not record/track MailChimp emails sent to contacts. To create a two way sync, we recommend utilizing our PieSync integration. You can learn more about this here:
Starting April 20th 2021, the Nimble PieSync integration will no longer be available for new users to sign up. Set up the integration prior to April 20th in order to be able to enjoy Nimble + PieSync through April 21, 2022.
