MailChimp today announced the release of an integration with Pinpoint Social. Pinpoint Social presents a simple way for businesses to create &amp run promotions on Facebook. Their integration with MailChimp allows users to create an email campaign based on their Facebook promotion with one click, making it easy to get the word out about a new contest or special deals.

Pinpoint Social provides an online application for any business wanting to create powerful promotions on Facebook. It’s a solution that offers an array of customization options, practical metrics, and requires no knowledge of HTML to use.

“We started analyzing our user’s activity and realized that those who combine their Facebook promotions with a targeted email campaign to their subscribers are exponentially more successful that those who rely on social media outreach alone,” said Daniel Patricio of Pinpoint Social.

The resulting Pinpoint Social and MailChimp integration allows companies to send targeted email campaigns announcing their Facebook promotions without having to design two promotional pieces. Pinpoint Social takes the design and copy from your Facebook promotion and automatically creates an email campaign in MailChimp. All the user has to do is login, choose their list and press send. The integration also syncs email contacts collected via these promotions to the appropriate list in MailChimp.

Pinpoint Social has a freemium model with a variety of pricing plans to suit needs. The MailChimp integration comes standard with all accounts.
