Exporting to MailChimp

Level up your email in MailChimp

You can easily design your email messages in the BEE editor, and then push them to MailChimp for sending.

Here are 2 ways that you can connect your MailChimp account in BEE Pro:

  1. From the Brand Settings section: connect your MailChimp account before you start designing... or...
  2. From the Export options of your email message

 

1. Connect from Brand Settings

Go to Settings / Connectors ...

... Click the Connect button for MailChimp

And follow the steps to log-in. Your credentials are not stored in BEE Pro: they are just used to connect your accounts.

If you often need to switch between different accounts (e.g. you are designing email templates for several customers, each one with their own MailChimp account), you might be interested in using a BEE Pro Agency account.

 

2. Connect from Export

When your message is ready, click on the Export message button in the Message Details page...

... and then click on Export to another application.

A new window will be displayed with the connectors' list: select MailChimp and follow the steps to log-in and connect it.

Your message will be exported to your MailChimp account as a new template and it will appear in the list of templates within a few seconds.

Multiple Brands / Customers

Do you have different brands and need to easily manage all your email messages and templates?

No problem! As mentioned above, the Agency Version of BEE Pro allows you to set up different brands so you can better organize your emails, control user access, and specify different connectors for each brand (without switching accounts before exporting!)

For example, if you are a digital marketing agency with 10 clients that use MailChimp, you will be able to create 10 brands in BEE Pro and connect each of them to their specific MailChimp account.

    Will I be able to do the opposite? Import HTML email template to BEE plugin?

    Unfortunately that is not possible. The good thing is... it's really easy and fast to use the BEE editor, so you should be able to recreate whatever HTML message in BEE rather quickly.

    Pushing a message to Mailchimp would be great in the plugin version

    I am a novice at this so please forgive my ignorance. I am using Reachmail as an email service provider. Their editor isn't user friendly so I have created a test newsletter in Bee and want to import the HTML code into Reachmail. I downloaded the zip file with images but Reachmail only accept these file extensions: html, shtml, shtm. Is there any way to do this with Bee please?

    Hi Lia, you can either upload the HTML that's included in the ZIP file, and then readd the images (if your application does not allow you to import a ZIP file) or you can move to BEE Pro, which allows you to download an HTML file and keep the images hosted with us.

    Can you add more than one Mailchimp account to a Bee Pro account?

    Hi Ryan, you can do so in the Agency plan as you can manage ESP connectors at the Brand level (e.g. one Client / Brand may be using one MailChimp account vs. another Client / Brand that is using another MailChimp account).

    Hi Rose: is there a reason why you are not using the free MailChimp connector? It's super easy to use. See: how to use the MailChimp connector: https://emaildesign.beefree.io/2017/12/tutorial-bee-mailchimp-connector/
