Craftmonkey: Drag-and-Drop Campaign Creator for Etsy Sellers

I’m really excited to announce the latest integration to launch from our $1 million integration fund, a drag-and-drop campaign creator for Etsy sellers called Craftmonkey.

Craftmonkey makes creating a professional-looking newsletter that showcases your handmade wares as simple as possible. The application uses both MailChimp’s and Etsy’s open APIs to make signing up for an account and getting started quick and easy. Just connect your MailChimp account, enter your Etsy shop name and you’re ready to create a great looking campaign.

Craftmonkey pulls in your shop items and allows you to drag and drop the items you want to feature into your newsletter. All the image & item description formatting is handled automatically. Plus, Craftmonkey echoes your Etsy shop branding by pulling in your Etsy header and resizing it for your newsletter template.

Once you’ve completed your campaign, you can send it out to your MailChimp list right from inside the application. Or, if you’d rather run some inbox inspections or schedule delivery for later, you can save your campaign as a draft. Then, when you log in to your MailChimp account, it’ll be there waiting for you to test and tweak to your heart’s desire.

Craftmonkey’s not the only awesome thing we’ve got going on for online sellers. Have you checked out our MailChimp Guide for Online Sellers? Also, Craftmonkey creators Social Glu put together a guide for turning your craft into a full-blown business. This Crafty Business Guide is available for download on our Online Sellers page, or you can just click here to download it directly.
