Freshbooks integration with Mailchimp

freshbooks-invoice-logoWe’re excited to announce that MailChimp now integrates with Freshbooks, to make staying in touch with all your customers painless. Basically, we’ve made it super easy to import your customers from your Freshbooks account into MailChimp. Then, you can send them email newsletters, event invitations, and autoresponders.

We’ll clean unsubscribes and bounces on MailChimp, and we’ll give you awesome reports to track your performance.

Freshbooks takes care of your billing, and MailChimp takes care of email marketing. Throw in a little Batchbook CRM, and you’ve got some kind of crazy-powerful "small business web" or something.

Here’s how it works…

Whenever you create a list in MailChimp, the final step asks you where you want to import your list from.

Select the Freshbooks option.

Next, MailChimp will ask you to give us your Freshbooks account API key. Here’s where you can find that in Freshbooks:

Once you plug that key into MailChimp, we’ll import your customer list. Now you’re ready to send email newsletters to all your customers!

We told you it was painless.
