The Best Elementor Mailchimp Add-ons and Integrations

Elementor, arguably the number one page builder for WordPress, has seen phenomenal growth in recent years. Even the release of the WordPress Block Editor wasn’t enough to stop Elementor’s rise. The plugin’s ascent to the top of the download charts mirrors the climb of Mailchimp to the top of all email marketing software. It’s only natural for these two applications to meet and work together. Their large userbases guarantee some sharing of customers. With that in mind, let’s take a look at four of the best Elementor Mailchimp add-ons and integrations available today.


Mailchimp Elementor Integration

We’ll start with the most obvious: the solution from Elementor itself. The Elementor Pro Form Widget offers support for Mailchimp integration. This integration is probably the simplest and quickest we’ll cover in this post. The only downside is that it isn’t free. You’ll need to subscribe to Elementor Pro to get this functionality. So keep that in mind before reading any further.

The process for setting this up is rather simple. First, you’ll need to tell Elementor what your Mailchimp API Key is. You can save the API Key inside of Elementor by going to the Settings menu and then clicking the Integrations link.

Now it’s time to build your form once the API Key is ready to go. Simply create your form using the Form Widget. When you are ready go to the Actions After Submission section. This is where you actually connect your form up to Mailchimp. Your options include:

  • Picking which Audience to subscribe your user to
  • Selecting which Group, or Segment, of that Audience to assign the user
  • Adding any Tags to the user
  • Forcing the user to verify their email with double opt-in
  • Mapping any additional fields to your user’s Mailchimp record

Those options make the Elementor Pro Form Widget a pretty powerful solution. You can quickly, and easily, add new subscribers to your lists with a lot of additional detail automatically. This is our preferred Elementor Mailchimp integration as long as you are willing to pay for Elementor Pro.

Essential Addons Mailchimp Integration

Essential Addons is a well-known WordPress plugin that adds all sorts of features to Elementor. One of those features is an easy-to-use way to add a Mailchimp sign-up form to your site. If you are already an Essential Addons customer this is probably your best bet to connect Elementor and Mailchimp to one another.

Getting this up and running is easy. Of course, you’re going to need your Mailchimp API Key. You can store this inside of Essential Addons’ Settings screen under Form Styler Elements.

With that out of the way, actually adding the signup form is a snap. Open up the page you want to add the form to, search through Elements for “EA Mailchimp,” and drag the widget into your content. Select which list you want to connect the form to and you’re almost done already.

The Content tab lets you change what fields are including in the form. By default, Email, First Name, and Last Name are enabled. You can turn the name fields off and change the labels on all three to any text you want. You can even modify the button text and what message is shown after a user successfully subscribes.

The Style tab offers total control over the visual elements of the form. Select a layout, change colors, fonts, and text sizes. There are enough options here to make it relatively easy to match the Mailchimp signup form to the design of your site.


Happy Addons for Elementor

Happy Addons, like Essential Addons, is a huge collection of widgets and things for Elementor. Their Mailchimp form widget has an interesting mix of features compared to the previous options on this list. While you don’t quite get everything you might want this is still a viable option if you’re already a Happy Addons user.

First, and this will surely surprise you if you’ve read this far, is to get your Mailchimp API Key. You can store the API Key inside of Happy Addons by going to the Credentials area of the plugin. With that out of the way, it’s time to see just what it takes to get a form on your site.

Once you are in Elementor, looking at your page, search your Elements for “Mailchimp” to find the Happy Addons widget. The first thing you’ll want to do is pick your Audience and any Mailchimp Tags you want the subscriber to have.

Now it’s time to modify the form. You’ll notice right away that you only have one field, the email address, on the form. You can add additional fields such as Name and Phone by going to the Form area of the Content tab. The Style tab will let you change colors, margins, typography, and much more. There are enough options here that you should be able to create any layout you need.


ElementsKit Elementor Mailchimp Widget

The final option on our list today is the Elementor Mailchimp Widget by ElementsKit. To be honest, this widget has the same type of setup as the others mentioned above. Make sure you have a Mailchimp API Key ready and you add the widget to your page by searching Elements for “Mailchimp” when it’s time.

What really sets the ElementsKits widget apart from the competition is its customization options. You can truly make whatever interface you want for your Mailchimp form with this widget. The number of decisions you can make might actually be overwhelming to some users but the results are worth it. ElementsKit offers some of the most unique and attractive Mailchimp sign-up forms you’ll find in an Elementor widget. Check out this demo video of the widget’s styling options:

Still not convinced? Take a look at some of the example Mailchimp forms on the ElementsKit website. ElementsKit offers relatively low, annual pricing for their plugin. It’s certainly a good option to consider if you’re looking to extend Elementor and integrate Mailchimp into your WordPress site.


Find the Best Elementor Mailchimp Add-on

As WordPress, Elementor, and Mailchimp continue to grow on the same curve more options will become available. For now, with what the add-on market has provided, there are still plenty of great possibilities.

We recommend you strongly consider all four of these choices. The right one for you will be based on your needs including how tightly you can connect data to Mailchimp, styling and customization options, and price. You can’t go wrong with any of these choices though. You will most likely find plenty of other useful things to use with Elementor in these add-ons aside from just Mailchimp integration.

How to Sync WordPress Users with Mailchimp

One of the “white whales” of Mailchimp and WordPress integration is user syncing. Finding a good way to sync WordPress users with Mailchimp has been a popular Google search for years. Everyone who relies on WordPress for their web content and Mailchimp for their email marketing wants a way to combine their user bases together. Unfortunately, over time, this task has gone from being something relatively simple to much more difficult.

Let’s take a look at the ways you can currently sync users between WordPress and Mailchimp now. We’ll also discuss why this has become more challenging recently thanks to privacy laws.


The Old Way to Sync WordPress Users with Mailchimp

Prior to November of 2019, the fine developers at Ibericode had a plugin built specifically for the purpose of syncing. You might recognize the Ibericode name as the team behind the Mailchimp for WordPress plugin. Ibericode’s plugin is commonly referred to by MC4WP and we’ll use that acronym throughout this post. Their syncing plugin was called Mailchimp User Sync. It was actively developed and supported for many years as a free plugin on WordPress.org.

Mailchimp User Sync did exactly what its name implies. You could use the plugin to keep your WordPress user accounts and Mailchimp audiences the same. New users added to your WordPress installation were automatically subscribed to a Mailchimp list at the same time. The plugin did even more than that though. The feature list was impressive:

  • Match profile changes with Mailchimp
  • Unsubscribe a user in Mailchimp when their WordPress account is deleted
  • User role-based syncing rules
  • Support for double opt-in
  • Command line interface commands to handle large amounts of WordPress users at once

So what happened? Why is Mailchimp User Sync no longer supported or available?

Privacy Laws and Technical Debt

The original Mailchimp User Sync plugin was shuttered in the fall of 2019. Ibericode would eventually release a statement that blamed the shutdown on the launch of GDPR, changes to the Mailchimp API, and growing technical debt. A lot of the core functionality, particularly automatically subscribing users to Mailchimp lists, was a problem with many of the new privacy laws around the globe.

The old way is gone. Thankfully, Ibericode didn’t completely give up on the idea of syncing WordPress and Mailchimp.

The New Way to Sync WordPress and Mailchimp Users

We’ll be honest. The new way to sync WordPress users with Mailchimp isn’t as good. Ibericode announced a new option shortly after the free version of their Mailchimp User Sync plugin was closed. The new add-on, also called User Sync, is now only an option for MC4WP customers. This premium edition, which replaces the original version entirely, has two major changes over the original:

  • It is no longer free. User Sync is only available to Mailchimp for WordPress customers on one of their yearly payment plans.
  • It no longer subscribes or unsubscribes users from Mailchimp lists.

Obviously, those are two huge changes over the original plugin that was available for free. And, for many people reading this article, those differences are probably deal breakers.

Unfortunately, from Ibericode’s post of view, supporting the subcribe/unsubscribe feature was too difficult to maintain. In addition, the number of edge-cases encountered by supporting the free plugin became too much.

What You Can Do with User Sync

The main purpose of the User Sync add-on isn’t to add or remove subscribers from Mailchimp. The primary focus is to make sure your WordPress user data matches your Mailchimp user data. Now, with User Sync installed, any time a WordPress user makes a change to their details (name, email address, etc.) it is automatically reflected inside of Mailchimp. This process also works in reverse as well. Making a change to a Mailchimp subscriber will be

Managing Subscribing and Unsubscribing Users

Losing the ability to automatically subscribe and unsubscribe users is a huge blow but understandable. All hope is not lost though. While User Sync won’t take care of this for you there is still nothing stopping you from doing this manually. Ibericode recommends using a plugin to export your user information out of WordPress into a CSV file. You can then take that CSV file and import them into Mailchimp on your own.

This solution won’t keep things synced up, of course. And it’s a very manual and hands on process. Unfortnately, given the current state of privacy laws and technology, this is the only true option you have at this time.


Syncing WooCommerce Users with Mailchimp

One more thing to consider when discussing syncing with Mailchimp is WooCommerce. The insanely popular e-commerce plugin is a prime candidate for Mailchimp integration. Luckily, the developers of Mailchimp develop and maintain a WooCommerce plugin that tightly integrates the two services data. You can download this plugin, called Mailchimp for WooCommerce, for free from WordPress.org.

MailChimp for WooCommerce does the one thing we want most from MC4WP: automatic user subscription. Of course, the catch is that users must opt-in to this subscription during the checkout process. Also, this is only applicable to WooCommerce user accounts. It does not apply to basic WordPress user accounts for things like comments or membership plugins.

Finally, the WooCommerce plugin from Mailchimp syncs purchase data. This is the big syncing feature that almost an e-commerce store utilizing Mailchimp will find useful. You can use synced purchase data to write very targeted campaigns, follow-up with a user after they make a purchase, offer discounts based on past buying decisions, and much more. The possibilities are almost endless once you are sycning data between WooCommerce and Mailchimp.


Your User Syncing Options Are Limited

In the end, your choices for a solution to sync user between WordPress and Mailchimp are slim. Maybe, as time goes by and laws change, the old way will make a return. For now, hopefully this article contained enough information for you to come up with a solution for your own situation. We are big fans of the Mailchimp for WordPress plugin here. Our own WordPress plugin, ChimpBridge, integrates directly with MC4WP in our setup process.

What Does the Mailchimp Member Rating Mean?

Mailchimp has a very impressive, built-in, way to decide who the most active subscribers in your audience are. This Mailchimp member rating system is a 16-point scale that is used to measure engagement. It’s oftentimes referred to as a contact rating. You’ve probably seen these ratings before when you logged in to your Mailchimp account. Your audience list has five-star ratings. This is the member, or contact, rating we’re going to talk about today.


The Rules Behind a Mailchimp Member Rating

As we mentioned above, there are 6 points of interest used by Mailchimp to calculate a contact rating. We won’t go over all of these today. It’s important to know some of the basics of how this all works though.

One of the most important facets of the system is the open and click rate. Mailchimp is monitoring how often your subscribers actually open and interact with your emails. To be even more specific, this oversight of activity even breaks down engagement based on the frequency of your campaigns. In other words, audience members opening up monthly emails are scored differently than those who open up weekly emails.

You can’t see all of the points of interest inside of Mailchimp. What you can see is a visual representation through star ratings. When you see a one through five-star rating next to a contact in your Audience that is their Mailchimp member rating.

Why Are My New Mailchimp Subscribers Given Two Stars?

A brand new subscriber, and those who don’t take “negative” actions, are rated at two stars by default. The only thing that can take a subscriber to a lower Mailchimp member rating is if they register a complaint or their address results in a hard bounce. Other than that, the only way for them to move is up based on their engagement levels.

Here, in broad strokes, are what each of the star ratings translates to in the eye of Mailchimp:

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ – Five Stars

When a user in your audience receives a five-star Mailchimp member rating they are your most engaged subscribers. These contacts are the ones who open and click on your campaigns the most. They are your most engaged, and active, members reading your newsletter.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ – Four Stars

Mailchimp considers a four-star rated member to be one that is “moderately” engaged. They don’t offer specifics as to how their algorithm determines moderate. By reading between the lines, one can assume a subscriber who regularly opens and clicks on links in your email can hit a four-star rating quite quickly.

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ – Three Stars

A three-star user is considered someone with a low open and click-through rate. Low engagement is basically the minimal effort or interaction with your campaigns. There is also a time penalty, of sorts, involved with this level. A subscriber can’t get higher than a three-star rating until they have spent an undisclosed amount of time subscribed to your newsletter.

⭐ ⭐ – Two Stars

Like we already said, a two-star member rating is usually applied to new subscribers. It’s also possible for a long-time subscriber, whose engagement has fallen off, to slip back to this level. It’s slightly unfortunate that Mailchimp lumps those two groups together in this way. It means you need to take a little more effort when setting up segments to separate truly new members of your audience from disengaged, older ones.

⭐ – One Star

This is as low as you can go in the Mailchimp member rating system. A one-star contact has had a history of unsubscribing, and then resubscribing, to your list. Or, even worse, their email address has had a soft bounce during one of your previous campaigns. Either way, the one-star rated contacts on your list are the least engaged and most likely to be disinterested in your content.

What Does Engagement Really Mean?

Mailchimp contact ratings, and therefore engagement scores, are updated every time you send a campaign. This is an ideal way to rank members of your lists. Having up-to-date engagement numbers is important if you want to make changes. But what does engagement actually mean?

Positive Engagement

At the most basic level, positive engagement in the eyes of Mailchimp is a subscriber who is regularly opening emails. Positive engagement doesn’t just stop at opening though. Mailchimp is also monitoring click-through rates on all of the links in your campaigns. The more often a person clicks on your links the more likely they are to score high positive engagement marks.

In addition to clicks and opens, Mailchimp also applies e-commerce statistics to positive engagement as well. Users who have recorded successful purchases at your site and have had that information sent back to Mailchimp receive boosts in their positive engagement metrics.

Negative Engagement

The three big ways that Mailchimp measures negative engagement are probably obvious to anyone used to sending email newsletters. People who unsubscribe, mark your emails as spam, or issue a direct complaint are negatively engaged.

These are the users you don’t want sticking around. Negatively engaged subscribers can impact delivery rates, cause ISPs to flag your emails as spam, and other bad outcomes. Do your best to deal with these members quickly.


How to Make Good Use of the Mailchimp Member Rating System

What do we do now? We know how the Mailchimp contact rating system works, how engagement is scored, and just what exactly engagement means. One of the best ways to take advantage of the Mailchimp contact rating system is to make audience segments. Using proper audience segmenting techniques allows you to send specific content that is better matched to your goals.

Target Your Best Subcribers

Once you begin to take advantage of the segment system you can begin to send very targeted and focused campaigns to your “best” subscribers. This is ideal if you are trying to sell products or merchandise. It is a safe bet that your most engaged members are most likely to be interested in buying. Sending special offers to your four and five-star subscribers is a sure way to improve sales and performance.

Target Your Disengaged Subscribers

The reverse is true as well. By writing campaigns to target the lower-scored subscribers of your list you can possibly get them re-engaged with your content and business. Take advantage of this segment by trying out new ways to get higher open and click rates on your emails. Try and increase the engagement levels of these hard-to-reach users. Therefore, doing so can improve the quality, and engagement, of your entire audience.

Clean Up Your List

Finally, there’s no reason whatsoever to send your Mailchimp campaigns to people who don’t open them. Take advantage of the member rating system to prune your audience list. You might even be able to save yourself some money on your monthly Mailchimp bill by deleting disengaged members from your audience.


A Mailchimp Member Rating Offers Insight

We hope you’ve come to the end of this post with a better idea of how the Mailchimp contact rating system works. Hopefully, in addition to a better understanding, you’ve come up with some useful ways to take advantage of the ratings. Mailchimp is doing all of the behind-the-scenes monitoring for you. All you need to do is look at the overall picture and figure out how to write the best campaigns for your subscribers.

The Best Gravity Forms Mailchimp Plugins and Integrations

Gravity Forms is, far and away, the premier form building plugin for WordPress. It’s the most customizable and an entire ecosystem of add-ons and plugins have developed over the years. Many of these plugins are built with the idea of integrating with third-party services and applications. One of the more common services that people like to integrate with Gravity Forms and WordPress is Mailchimp. We’re going to take a look at some of the best Gravity Forms Mailchimp plugins and integrations available today.


Gravity Forms Mailchimp Add-on

We’ll begin with the official Gravity Forms Mailchimp add-on. This is the easiest way to connect Gravity Forms to Mailchimp. You can use this add-on to make a Gravity Form to collect subscribers for your newsletter. The obvious way to do this is to just create a brand new form, ask for an email address, and tie that together with your Mailchimp account. You can then place that form throughout your site to help grow your list.

Of course, the power of the add-on is that you can connect any of your forms to Mailchimp. It doesn’t just have to be a Gravity Form dedicated to collecting email addresses from your visitors. You can integrate Mailchimp to any Gravity Form you have that collects an email address: support requests, contact forms, data collection, and estimates and proposals. The possibilities are endless.

How to Install the Official Gravity Forms Mailchimp Add-on

You can download the Mailchimp add-on directly from the Gravity Forms site. The add-on is available across all three of the Gravity Forms licensing levels: Basic, Pro, and Elite. The easiest way to install the add-on is to access the Add-Ons option in the Forms menu of your WordPress installation.

Gravity Forms Menu - Add-Ons Screenshot
Gravity Forms Add-Ons are accessible via the Forms menu in WordPress.

From there, just find the Mailchimp add-on, press the Install button, and follow the steps. Once the add-on is installed and activated the final step is to add your Mailchimp API Key to the Gravity Forms Settings.

Installing the Mailchimp Add-on for Gravity Forms is as easy as clicking one button.

Useful Tips for the Gravity Forms Mailchimp Add-on

You can use the official add-on to map individual fields in your form back to fields in your Mailchimp-created forms. This way you can collect multiple pieces of information and not just a simple email address.

Supporting double opt-in is a requirement for any email marketing tool and Mailchimp is no exception. Luckily, the official add-on makes this easy to enforce. Simply check the option when setting up your form’s Mailchimp Feed.

If you get stuck at any point during the setup process don’t forget to check the official documentation. Gravity Forms is well-known for great support and documentation for its plugin and all of its add-ons.


Workflow Automation Tools

One of the more common ideas in software now is connecting applications together. In the past, this was done with custom software or manual data entry. In recent years, several services have come out to automate workflows. The two most popular, Zapier and Integromat, have a few ways you can make your forms and Mailchimp talk to each other.

Zapier

Zapier is another great way to connect Gravity Forms to your Mailchimp account. Your options are a little limited but you can find more details over at the Zapier website. The most interesting integration Zapier suggests is to use a Gravity Form submission to unsubscribe a user from a list. Giving your subscribers an additional way to remove themselves from your campaigns is always a user-friendly touch. Making the process automated through a Gravity Form on your website and a Zapier integration would make that easy.

Integromat

You might not be familiar with Integromat. They are a Zapier competitor that offers very similar services but at different, more affordable pricing. There are a handful of integrations between Gravity Forms and Mailchimp you can check out on the Integromate site. The most interesting is adding a tag to a subscriber whenever they submit a Gravity Form. You could use this integration to help categorize and identify returning users, existing customers, or any other of the myriad ways that Mailchimp tags are useful.


Making Gravity Forms Talk to Mailchimp Is Easy

We’ve gone through several really good options to make these two popular applications communicate. Our personal recommendation, since you’re using WordPress anyway, is to go with the official add-on. But, if you are already paying for Zapier or Integromat, certainly investigate those options as well. Zapier, in particular, can get quite expensive if you use their service frequently so use your best judgment.

How to Send a Mailchimp Campaign with WordPress

Mailchimp is one of the most dominant email marketing platforms around. It’s the go-to solution for many marketers, organizations, and individuals looking to leverage email as a promotional and outreach tool. For publishing on the web, WordPress is by far the most popular content management system. Today we’ll show you how you can combine the power of Mailchimp and WordPress with our ChimpBridge plugin. With ChimpBridge, you can send a Mailchimp campaign with WordPress in the same way you write and publish a blog post. It couldn’t be easier.

As time goes by, and social media advertising and other new ways to market come and go, an email will always remain one of the best ways to reach an audience. Unfortunately, the complexity of writing and sending a simple email newsletter has increased. Even tools like Mailchimp, which are specifically designed to cater to a wide pool of users, haven’t escaped this added complexity. The goal of ChimpBridge, our WordPress plugin for Mailchimp, is to make using the core act of writing a newsletter a built-in part of the familiar WordPress experience.

So let’s get started. Here’s the easiest way to send a Mailchimp campaign. And all you need to do is install our plugin and start writing.


Add ChimpBridge to Your WordPress Site

You’ll need to install ChimpBridge in order to create and send a Mailchimp campaign with WordPress. The easiest way to handle this is to log in to your WordPress admin. Once you have done that, head over to the Plugins menu and find the Add New option. Type “ChimpBridge” in the keyword search and in a moment you’ll see our plugin show up on the screen. Click the Install Now button and WordPress will walk you through the steps of installing and activating the plugin.

ChimpBridge - Install Now Screenshot

You’re almost ready to go. The next step is probably the most important. You are going to need to tell ChimpBridge how to communicate with your Mailchimp account. This is done by finding your Mailchimp API key and saving it in the ChimpBridge settings.

Find and Save Your Mailchimp API Key

Log in to your Mailchimp account and head over to the API Keys section. If you don’t have any API keys yet you will need to create one here. When that is done all you need to do here is copy the key. If you need more help with this step or get lost on the Mailchimp site, there is a handy tutorial about API Keys in the company’s help documentation.

Now, with your Mailchimp API Key copied, head back to WordPress. Go to ChimpBridge in the menu and find the Settings option. This screen simply asks you to paste your Mailchimp API key and save it. If successful, ChimpBridge will let you know it can now communicate with your Mailchimp account.

Integration with MC4WP

There’s a good chance you are familiar with the MC4WP plugin if you’re reading this post. Mailchimp for WordPress is the most popular and widely praised Mailchimp signup form plugin on the market. It’s so popular, in fact, that ChimpBridge has a special integration. ChimpBridge knows to look for your Mailchimp API Key in the MC4WP settings. If it finds something, it is automatically added to the ChimpBridge settings as well. You don’t have to do anything and our plugin will immediately know how to connect to your Mailchimp account.

Still Stuck on API Keys?

Are you still having trouble? Feel free to contact us via our Support form and we’d be happy to help you get your Mailchimp API problems sorted out.

With this step done ChimpBridge is able to get your list of Audiences from your Mailchimp account, save campaigns, and even send those campaigns. All within the familiar WordPress interface.


Create and Send a Mailchimp Campaign

Now that all of the installation and setup is out of the way it’s time to work on a campaign. Find the New Campaign option under the ChimpBridge area of your WordPress admin menu.

You’ll be presented with an interface any WordPress user will immediately be familiar with. It’s very much like what you would use to write and publish a post or page on your site.

ChimpBridge 1.1.5 - New Campaign Screenshot

The Basics of ChimpBridge

The field you are probably used to using as the title of your blog posts is where you put the subject of your Mailchimp campaign. From there, the main text editor is for the body of your email. ChimpBridge uses the basic WYSIWYG text editor provided by WordPress, and not the new Block Editor, in order to give you better control. The WYSIWYG editor also helps us guarantee better compatibility with the various email clients that will be used to read your email after it is sent.

There are a few extra interface features we’ll walk you through next.

Mailchimp Reference

Mailchimp supports a few wildcard values for use in campaigns. For instance, you can insert *|FNAME|* anywhere in your subject or body. Mailchimp will automatically replace that text with the first name of the subscriber receiving the email. In ChimpBridge, simply place your cursor at the point of your campaign text you want the wildcard to appear. Then click the corresponding wildcard label in the Mailchimp Reference box.

Manage Campaign

The Manage Campaign section of the ChimpBridge plugin lets you pick the audience you want to send your email to. ChimpBridge Pro users also have the option to select a segment from the selected audience. You can view the raw code you’ll be sending to Mailchimp and, most importantly, you have the ability to change some of the campaign’s basic settings:

  • From Name
  • From Email
  • To Name
  • Footer (ChimpBridge Pro Only)

Preview Campaign

ChimpBridge comes with an easy way to preview what your Mailchimp campaign’s email will look like. Right inside the plugin interface, you can enter in an email address to send a test email to. This is by far the easiest way around to write and preview Mailchimp campaign drafts. We strongly recommend every campaign you create with ChimpBridge is first previewed before you actually publish.

Send Campaign

Has your test email been received and look ok? Then you are ready to send your Mailchimp campaign. Hit the Send Campaign button and ChimpBridge will send your campaign contents along to Mailchimp. Once Mailchimp receives the campaign information they take over from there and make sure your selected audience gets your email.

Not quite ready to send? Click the Save Draft button to save your campaign and come back to it later when you are ready. In addition to saving the information in your WordPress installation, the campaign details will also be sent to Mailchimp as well.
