Using Litmus with Mailchimp
The Litmus integration with Mailchimp lets you build and test emails without manually copying and pasting code between tools, saving time and streamlining your email workflow.
NOTE: Litmus Mailchimp integrations are available on Plus and Enterprise plans.
Connect Litmus to Mailchimp
Set up the ESP sync between Litmus and Mailchimp. Mailchimp login information is required.
NOTE: Any Litmus user with Full, Content editor, Code editor, Admin, or Account Holder roles can configure the setup in your Litmus account.
Sync emails between Litmus and Mailchimp
Once the ESP sync is in place, you can sync your emails into Builder, Previews & QA for testing with email clients, Proof (Enterprise plans) for final review, or you can start a full spam test without ever leaving Litmus!
Sync in Builder
From the Builder tab in your email project, choose Sync to ESP. Connect your ESP instance or choose from connected ESPs. You can sync to Templates or Campaigns in Mailchimp and even choose a specific folder or sub-folder for your sync.
Import an email for final review and pre-send testing
Select Create new on the home screen in Litmus. Choose Test to run automated pre-send tests or Collaborate to review your email in Litmus Proof. Select Next and then your ESP in the drop-down menu.
Start a spam test
You can also start a Spam Test using ESP Sync. Select Test in the navigation bar, choose View and create spam tests, and then use the Start a new Spam Test button in the upper right corner. Choose your ESP instance from the drop-down menu.
Use Mailchimp with Litmus Extension
The Litmus Extension in the Google Chrome browser can be used to test emails as you build within Mailchimp, eliminating the hassle of switching between tools. First, install the Litmus Extension, then test as you build in Mailchimp.
Access email previews within Mailchimp
Litmus also has an integration directly within Mailchimp via its Inbox Previews tool. Test how your email will render across 100+ email clients and devices to catch and fix any issues before you send. This tool is custom built by Mailchimp and can coordinate with your Litmus subscription.
Litmus Email Analytics with Mailchimp
Litmus Email Analytics gives you the insights that matter most so you can understand what content, segmentation, and calls-to-action work best.
- Create an analytics tracking code, then include it your Mailchimp email.
- Export your email analytics data or Enterprise users can set up an FTP feed to supplement analytics provided through Mailchimp.
