Fully featured email marketing with Simple Salon & Mail Chimp

Follow

Simple Salon allows you to send effective marketing emails directly from Simple Salon, or via one of our third party add-ons — Campaign Monitor and Mail Chimp. This article looks at Mail Chimp. Click here to learn more about Campaign Monitor.

The benefit of using one of our third party email marketing add-ons is that they are specifically designed to handle large volumes of emails. The Simple Salon Email Marketing is great if you want to send up to 1,000 emails at one time. If you need to send more than 1,000 emails in one go, then connect with one of our email marketing add-ons and away you go. Additionally, Mail Chimp and Campaign Monitor have lots of cool extra features.

Mail Chimp gives you more control over the personalisation of your email campaigns. Mail Chimp maps your client's behaviour and gives you feedback in regards to when they like to receive their emails. This means you can send your clients emails when you know they want them. This comprehensive reporting also tells you what email content your clients like best. Like Campaign Monitor, Mail Chimp also specialises in customisable email templates with loads of flexible design options to suit everyone.
