MailChimp Integration

Sync MailChimp with your groups within Breeze.

Churches that use MailChimp and maintain a church database can feel like they're keeping two databases up-to-date. The two can get out of sync really easily. With our MailChimp integration, you can connect groups within Breeze (through Tags) to a MailChimp List so that when people are added, removed, or modified in that group, MailChimp is automatically updated accordingly. Watch the video above for more on MailChimp integration.

  • If someone uses Mailchimp to unsubscribe, how does that affect their Breeze account? Will they be re-subscribed once the accounts sync again?

  • We're considering Mailchimp, largely for the more robust presentation tools it offers for emails. I understand we could continue to manage our mailing lists from Breeze, but it sounds like that function, including the automated sync, only works with tags. If we wanted, for instance, to populate a Mailchimp audience or tag with contact info for everyone in Breeze with the status of 'Visitor', would we first have to create a 'Visitor' tag in Breeze, apply it to all our Visitors, and then export that tag to Mailchimp?

    Thanks for your help with this.

    Great question! You are exactly right. You would need to create a visitor tag in Breeze first which would then allow you to connect that tag to MailChimp! If you encounter any errors with this, please don't hesitate to let us know!



  • I don't see that Patrick's question on May 14 was answered: "If someone uses Mailchimp to unsubscribe, how does that affect their Breeze account? Will they be re-subscribed once the accounts sync again?"

    Please advise.

    Hey, thanks for pointing that out, while it might have been addressed directly with an email, let's go ahead and continue that discussion here!  This is actually a great question...

    So, once you have your account and most importantly your Tags "linked" if someone unsubscribes in Mailchimp, it will only affect Mailchimp emails, and even when Breeze and MC sync up the next time, they will remain unsubscribed.  You'll notice that MC will display this synched person as unsubscribed within Mailchimp.  

    Hope that thoroughly answers your question!  

    Breezy Blessings!


  • So what happens if we share our Mailchimp campaign on social media or our website and someone who is not known to us clicks on the Subscribe button from Mailchimp... Are they subscribed then for perpetuity even if they aren't in Breeze? Or the next time the Breeze list syncs will they be wiped out?  

  • Hey @kathleencapshaw, 

    Thanks for reaching out with this great question about what happens if someone subscribes to your Mailchimp campaign from your website or social media and they are not currently in Breeze. 

    If the specific campaign is attached to the same audience or tag that is synced to Breeze, then Breeze will overwrite their information and they will be removed. 

    The best work around is create a campaign in Mailchimp that is connected to an audience or tag that is not synced to Breeze. This action will allow for those that subscribe via the Mailchimp campaign to remain inside of your Mailchimp account. 

    I hope this information is helpful.
