Sending Bulk Emails Through MailChimp

In our quest to improve our email systems, CommitChange has moved to a MailChimp integration to handle bulk emails. 

Now, to send a bulk email, you must first have a MailChimp account. (A Constant Contact integration is on the way.)

Once you have a MailChimp login and password, you're ready to head to CommitChange to synch your account.

Navigate to your Supporter Settings by clicking on the icon that looks like an address book then clicking on the settings tab in the top, right-hand corner of the screen.

CommitChange Supporter Settings

In the Setting modal that pops up, click on MailChimp synch settings.

You will be redirected to MailChimp to connect/log in to your account.

CommitChange Mailchimp Connect

Once you connect your accounts, you can select the tags you would like to use to synch your CommitChange supporters with your MailChimp email lists.

Manage CommitChange Tags for Mailchimp Sync

Once you select the tags you would like to synch and press submit, Mailchimp will create lists of the supporters that fall under those tags.  (It can take 5-10 minutes for tags to synch with your MailChimp account.)

Once you've synched your lists, MailChimp will synch with your CommitChange account on a nightly basis to keep your Lists up-to-date.
