Better customer communication with MailChimp

MailChimp LogoHere at BookingBug we know that generating repeat business from your customers is just as important as attracting new ones. That’s why we offer a variety of tools to help you communicate with your customers to keep them coming back for more!

One of our favourite tools for this is MailChimp, the online email marketing system that helps you design email newsletters and track your results. In fact, we like MailChimp so much we use it to send out our own email newsletters!

The BookingBug CRM stores the customer records of everyone that books through your website or Facebook page – you can also upload an existing contact list from a spread sheet. BookingBug’s MailChimp integration allows you to automatically export and sync those records from BookingBug into your very own MailChimp list so you can start sending those newsletters straight away!

MailChimp is completely free to use for contact lists of up to 2,000 emails. Visit the MailChimp website to find out more.

It is really easy to sync your contact lists, you just need to add your MailChimp API key to BookingBug and you are good to go … To see a step by step guide to enabling this great feature your can visit our helpdesk article.

BookingBug also has some other really great tools for communicating with your customers – especially by SMS … Check out our post on 2 way SMS communications for more info.
