MailChimp + Method CRM = <3

There's no denying it - you might be the best at what you do, but you still need a way to get the word out about your product or service.  Of course you're busy being the best at what you do - who has time to conduct their own advertising campaign?  Well, now you do - thanks to Method CRM’s integration with MailChimp.

MailChimp is a dedicated service that helps you design your own personalized email newsletters and share them across the social media landscape: on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and everywhere else that's pertinent to your business.  

And now, Method has integrated with MailChimp to allow you to export all of your contacts to the MailChimp service so the email marketing portion of your business can be handled entirely by MailChimp!

Of course, you might be asking yourself "why would I use separate software for my email marketing when Method already comes installed with built-in email marketing options?"  There are a number of reasons why you might choose to go the MailChimp route:

1.  Keep using your MailChimp templates: If you're already a MailChimp user new to Method, you may have existing MailChimp templates and campaigns you want to keep using. With this new integration, you can!

2.  Design your own templates: the email template builder in MailChimp is a drag and drop interface that’s been designed to be nice-and-easy to use.

3.  Sending with MailChimp’s Server: If you're already using MailChimp's SMTP server, you can continue to do so rather than specifying your own server through Method!  

4.  Tracking and Testing: with MailChimp’s tracking, you’ll know how many email were opened, how many clicks you got, and you can A/B test subject lines to see which perform better.

I was super excited until I saw the part about each contact needing to reconfirm their email subscription in Mail Chimp.  That is a huge bummer, I think I'll just export a list from Method and then import into Mail Chimp.

@ecoxotic - We are super excited about this too. MailChimp sends out the reconfirmation if it is a new list. If your using an existing list, MailChimp shouldn't resend the confirmation to your clients. I'd test it out first of course but that should be how it works.
