Schedule attendee emails for an event using our Mailchimp integration.

What types of attendee emails can I schedule using these integrations?

  • Send a COVID-19 pre-screening survey to attendees
  • Send reminders to bring something to an event or booking

  • Setup automated drip emails to build excitement for an event
  • Send greetings and welcome messages
  • Provide attendees with additional information and resources that can be used at an event
  • Offer real-time notifications of activities taking place
  • Send automated thank-you emails to everyone who attended an event with links to the event’s presentations, notes or recordings
  • Send a certificate of attendance/completion after a person completes a race or course
  • Create and send a satisfaction survey using the built-in tools in Mailchimp or connect your account to another platform such as SurveyMonkey
  • Request a review of your event or business
  • Create automations to touch base with attendees or customers at specific time intervals e.g. after attendees have completed a specific course or workshop
  • Send out special offers or cross-promote your other events
  • Export or synchronize attendee information with a different marketing or CRM platform

How does the Mailchimp integration work?

Attendees can be automatically added to a Mailchimp audience list when tickets are generated. You can also specify default tags or event-specific tags that can be used to segment your Mailchimp list.

Do I need any additional plugins to use the Mailchimp integration?

You need a Mailchimp account and the core FooEvents for WooCommerce plugin in order to use this integration.

Why should I use Mailchimp?

Mailchimp has become a household name and for good reason. It’s extremely powerful and packed with loads of features, however, this does come at a price especially if you have a medium to large database. We highly recommend Mailchimp if you regularly send emails to large lists and place a premium on email delivery and reporting or if your business already uses Mailchimp as many do. You may also opt to run WooCommerce Follow-ups and Mailchimp together depending on your requirements as they both have their own distinct strengths and weaknesses.
