Now that you have created your Mailchimp campaigns it is necessary that you manage the contacts you want to send the campaign to. It is a really simple process and the best of all is that the email addresses of your contacts are verified by Mailchimp. These means that Mailchimp will perform the validation process for those emails and if for any reason they find that the email address provided is invalid, then that contact will not receive the Campaign.
To get started, go to your desired Campaign, under the 'Campaign' tab. Once there click on 'Things You Can Do' and then click on 'Manage Leads'.
IMPORTANT! Mailchimp Campaigns are sent to the email associated with the 'Work email' field for your Contacts. In case that field is empty, that contact will not receive your campaign email.
Here you will be able to search within your contacts and select those that you want to add to the 'Campaign'.
All the leads you select will be shown in the list, where you can opt-to remove them in case one or more of them aren't meant to be there. Once you are done managing your leads, click the 'X' on the top right corner to dismiss the window, as they are saved to the campaign automatically.
To see the complete list of Leads assigned to the 'Campaign' click on the dropdown right below the 'Things You Can Do' button and select 'Leads'.
You can also see the campaigns associated to a contact from the 'Contact's detail page' under 'Contacts' or 'Leads' tab.
Great work! The status of your 'Campaign' will change to 'Schedule' since you added leads to it. Now you can sit back and relax or move to your next task as FreeAgent CRM will send your campaign on the scheduled date and time.
