Tutorial: How to Use BEE Mailchimp Connector

With more than 15 million users, Mailchimp is one of the most popular email marketing platforms in the world. Known for its high-quality email marketing and automation services, Mailchimp offers a variety of tools for you to get the most out of your marketing efforts. Some of the features include a Content Optimizer and Customer Journey builder, and an effective and easy-to-use email editor. So, why are Mailchimp users adopting BEE Pro to design their emails instead of using the built-in editor?

BEE Pro and Mailchimp Are The Perfect Pair

Currently, 20% of all BEE Pro users use Mailchimp to send their emails. We were curious about what made us the perfect pair, so we asked a few of you to share your experience.  

The main key factor was the additional design flexibility they found when using the BEE Pro editor. BEE Pro is a drag-and-drop email and landing page editor that allows you to quickly design emails from scratch or choose from 1,300+ professionally designed templates. BEE Pro allows users to create customizable, responsive HTML emails and export them to Mailchimp to send to email subscribers. 

The design flexibility of the BEE Pro builder paired with Mailchimp’s automation services makes the perfect pair to help you grow and nurture your email list.

In the Mailchimp Design Editor, you can make minor edits to the text, buttons, and URLs. If you would like to make any other changes, such as images or messaging structure, we recommend you use the BEE Pro builder to make use of the drag-and-drop feature.
