Integrate Social Media with MailChimp

Please note: This article assumes you have a MailChimp account. If you haven’t created a MailChimp account yet, please go to http://mailchimp.com/ and click on the Sign Up Free button before proceeding.

When you integrate social media with MailChimp you help your subscribers quickly share your content with their social networks as well as automatically displaying your campaigns on your own social media accounts.

Both of these will increase your exposure and can bring new visitors to your website.

You may also get new subscribers! Ding ding!

Integrate Social Media with MailChimp

► Click on your Account link in the top upper right corner of the Dashboard, then click on the Account option in the sub menu.

This will open your Account page.

► Click on Integrations from the page menu options.

This will open the Integrations page which is a list to all of the services MailChimp integrates with. For now, we’re just interested in social media, but go ahead and look around to see if there is anything else you might be interested in connecting later.

► Click on Twitter.

Be sure if you are logged into Twitter already, that it is the account you want to link to this MailChimp account. If it isn’t, log out and then login to the Twitter account you would like to link to MailChimp.

► Click on the ‘List to connect’ dropdown and select the list you want to connect with Twitter. Then, click the Connect button.

This will open up an ‘Authorize MailChimp to use your account?’ page.

► Click on the Authorize App button.

You should see a success message.

► Click on the Test Connections button to be sure everything is working.

This will show specific information from your Twitter account to prove that MailChimp is connected to it.

Now, we’ll move on to Facebook.

► Click on the Login button under the Facebook option in the integrations list.

Be sure if you are logged into Facebook already, that it is the account you want to link to this MailChimp account. If it isn’t, log out and then login to the Facebook account you would like to link to MailChimp.

You should see a success message.

► Click on the Test Connections button to be sure everything is working.

This will show specific information from your Facebook account to prove that MailChimp is connected to it.

Congratulations! Your Twitter and Facebook accounts are not integrated with your MailChimp account.

Next, you can Create a MailChimp RSS Campaign.
