You want to segment your mailing list so you can target newsletters to a specific audience. Content that applies to a specific audience will get better response than general content blasted to everyone.

You may either send completely different newsletters to somebody who inquired and didn't book, vs those that booked.

Or you might send the same newsletter, but use some logic fields to reference when they stayed, or inquired, etc. to make the message personalized to their situation.


I understand the concept. I tried it every which way (segmented, non segmented, tailored, generic). It is a waste of time and effort. Most emails probably ends up in spam (never opened) and the few that are - generate no activity. I think email is dead as advert medium. Don't know about you, but every time I log into my email, all I do is delete delete delete. So does everyone else.

E-blasts still work for us. I keep my list under 2K so I can use the free version of MC. Our open rate is about 30% with about 6% clicks.

Were you able to copy the pop-up form within OR headers? If so, where do we do that?

We are building out an integration between OR and Mailchimp right now. Let me know if you’re interested in using it too and I can talk to our developer about getting you access to it. It would sync contacts and tags from OR to Mailchimp. We might look at an ActiveCampaign integration as well.

Interested. I think this integration could provide a lot of value!

Likely we will do Zapier integration which will allow for Mailchimp plus myriad other email marketing solution options (e.g., Constant Contact).

Thanks Shawn.  That would be a huge upgrade.  I’ll keep my eyes peeled!

Would like to see this get some more effort. Been waiting for a while.

I agree about segments not needed at our level.

Have you guys done the Zapier integration? Seems like this questions had been on the table for a very long time

This is MUCH needed and easy to do to market not only to guests who've booked but leads from inquiries to market to that StayFi doesn't offer

Hello!
I'd love to see this Mailchimp integration too.

I would like to sync my emails/contacts in my OwnerRez CRM and import into my contacts for Mailchimp for my email newsletters. Obviously I'd exclude any Airbnb-masked emails. Thank you!

You can already download emails and other fields and import them into MC (omitting Airbnb etc emails). Go to Reports > Email List. 

It already omits Airbnb addresses by default 

 

Then import into MC.

Hi there-  sorry if I missed this in the discussion, is the Zapier integration something that OR built instead of integration with Mailchimp, or in addition to a planned integration with Mailchimp?  I understand the appeal of Zapier (given that it provides many-to-many application mappings).  But it's also one more platform to manage, requires some technical knowledge to set up the integration, has another subscription fee, and is kind of heavyweight for getting email addresses to and from a system like MailChimp.

On a related note, either as part of the Zapier or Mailchimp integrations, has any consideration been given to adding fields in the OR CRM module to better integrate with outside systems?  I'm used to seeing boolean fields in a CRM for things like 'guest opted out' (which would be fed to/from Mailchimp) or 'dont rent to guest' (maybe because they caused damage last time they rented).

Zapier has integrations with everything but there was probably some minor coding on the OR side but why pay for a 3rd party integration AND then for email marketing?

Hi Kraig,

Just a couple of thoughts,

As a general note in this context we typically recommend the use of tags for potentially common situations like "Bad Guest" or "Don't Rent to this Guest". This helps verify user by user.

Have you looked into using our mailing report that is designed to export CRM data out? Its possible to use this report to import data into MailChimp and update those lists.
