Want to know where an email subscriber came from? You can see this in your MailChimp account.
Our system can categorize your subscribers as coming from these sources:
- Website - customers signing up for news and deals on your website
- App - customers signing up for news and deals on your iPad app
- Network - customers signing up who have engaged with Facebook wifi
- Import - customers provided by you in an Excel spreadsheet
The best time to import subscribers is when you start building your email list.
52291 legacy clients can send us an Excel spreadsheet to import subscribers* when necessary.
*If maintaining accurate subscriber source data is important to you, make sure the import lists you send us only contain new subscribers - else, your subscriber source data may become skewed.
We will import all of the subscribers you send us in a spreadsheet.
If a subscriber signs up on your website or app, and you provide us that subscriber's email address at a later date for an import, the source data for that subscriber could get overwritten. This limitation is experienced across all email marketing providers.
The easiest way to prevent this is by sending us only new subscribers for import. You can check if an email address is already a subscriber by logging into your MailChimp account. Reconciling this information before sending us your spreadsheet may take a bit longer. By doing so, you ensure that your subscriber data is as accurate as possible.
This complication is simply something to be aware of, and only affects you when:
- you consistently send us email addresses for import
- you are not sure if the email addresses you send us are already subscribing to your email list
