MailChimp Integration with SourceLink℠

SourceLink can integrate with Mailchimp. Turning on the integration allows users to do things like signup for your newsletter and create a client record in SourceLink Pro. 

In order to active this feature, SourceLink staff will need your Mailchimp API key and Mailchimp Audience ID.  The below will provide step by step instructions for how to get this information and send it to SourceLink.

Mailchimp API Key Generation

Users with Manager permissions can generate and view their own API keys. Users with Admin permissions can also see API keys for other account users.

  1. Click this link to navigate to the API Keys section of your Mailchimp account: Your API Keys    
  2. Click the Create A Key button.    
  3. Copy the key (it will be a long string of characters), and provide this to SourceLink

Mailchimp Audience ID

  1. Go to Audience -> Audience Dashboard
  2. Manage Audience (top right) -> Settings
  3. Click on ‘Audience name and defaults’
  4. Copy the Audience ID, and provide this to SourceLink (in red text to the right)

Tip : Both unsubscribed and non-subscribed contacts count toward your monthly limits, so should periodically be removed. Unsubscribed contacts are someone who previously received your email marketing but has opted out. A non-subscribed contact is someone who has interacted with you but hasn’t opted in to receive email marketing campaigns. These contacts can be from an online store, our SourceLink integration, a manual import, or from a forwarded email to your Mailchimp Inbox.
