Mailchimp does more than just email. You can create Google ads from your Mailchimp account at no extra cost. Set your ads to target specific contacts or go beyond your audience to reach all-new people.
Mailchimp has lots of tools that help you sell more stuff. Use e-commerce data from your connected site to personalize your messages, so you recommend the right products to the right customers.
Abandoned cart messages remind customers to finish a purchase they started in your store. These messages can be sent as a single email or as a series of reminders. Try adding a discount code for extra incentive.
Use purchase history data to give your customers smart suggestions for their next purchase. Add personalized product recommendations to any email, including abandoned cart messages and order notifications. The more data you have, the better it works: We recommend it for stores that have at least 10 products and processed at least 500 orders in the last year.
As you connect with more people and your business grows, Mailchimp can help keep your customers coming back. Create segments and send purchase-based automations to reach your target audiences, and use data and testing to find out what’s working.
Mailchimp’s Customer Journey feature provides a great way to build dynamic, automated marketing paths for your contacts. Create a journey map that gives your contacts a personalized experience with your brand. Use shopping activities as starting points, branching points, and segmentation options to share your products and your story with your audience.
Segments are custom audiences based on purchases, demographics, and other shared data. Create your own, or choose one of our pre-built segments to quickly target first-time buyers, top customers, or people who haven’t made a purchase lately.
A/B testing sends two different versions of the same campaign so you can see how small changes affect how much revenue your emails generate. Test up to eight different versions with a Multivariate Campaign, included with the Standard plan or higher.
As you integrate more tools into your marketing plan, we’ll keep track of your return on investment (ROI), so you can figure out what’s working. You probably don’t have time to dig through the data, so we do it for you in your reports.
Mailchimp’s e-commerce reports detail your store’s purchase activity and order history. See which items your customers buy, and how much revenue each campaign has created. Then, use this data to create even more specific segments and more effective marketing.
