You can sync your Follow Up Boss database to MailChimp for mass emails. This includes contact name, assigned agent, tags, stage, phone, email, price, lead source, etc. If the contact unsubscribes from a MailChimp email, they will automatically be unsubscribed in Follow Up Boss, and vice-versa. (You can still directly email an unsubscribed contact from Follow Up Boss.)
Inside MailChimp you can then segment your lists to email only the people you want; past clients, for example.
MailChimp is free for up to 2000 contacts. If you have a larger database, you can also check out their pay as you go option.
Connecting to Your Account
Go to Admin > Integrations.
Find MailChimp and click "Configure". We also display the status of your MailChimp integration from the Integrations screen.
Follow the instructions on the screen:
Sign Up for a free MailChimp account if you don't have one already.
Select a MailChimp list in the dropdown and click Save List.
Please note: It could take a considerable amount of time to import all your contacts into MailChimp. Once you click on "Save List", you can safely navigate away from the page and your contacts will continue to import in the background.
Creating Multiple Lists
While Follow Up Boss syncs to one list only, creating “List Segments” in MailChimp allows you to do things like send to only a certain agent’s leads, send a blast to contacts that only contain a certain tag, and more!
