What is MailChimp?

MailChimp is an email marketing platform that helps you manage mailing lists and email marketing campaigns. Zapier allows you to connect your Táve account to MailChimp, updating your mailing list any time a new contact is created in Táve.

Find out more about MailChimp here: https://mailchimp.com 

 

Building the Zap

Like all Zaps, you'll begin building the zap on the Zaps page here: https://zapier.com/app/zaps 

Once here, you'll find the 'Create Zap' button to start the process.

In the editor, you'll want to give your Zap a name and then use the search to quickly find Táve:

Setting up the Trigger

Choose Contact Created as the Trigger Event and connect to your Táve account:

Next you'll want to select the Contact Kind (this is required) and Brand. If you leave the Brand empty then your Zap will trigger when a contact is created for any brand in your Táve account:

Use the Contact Kind drop down to select from the available options:

Next, run a test trigger to pull in contact data that you'll use when setting up the action.

 

Setting up the Action

Select MailChimp from the list of apps and the Action Event you'd like to use, then connect to your MailChimp account:

When setting up the action you'll be able to select which list, tag, group, etc, you want your Táve contacts added to in MailChimp. For example:

You'll then be able to map your Táve contact fields to your MailChimp subscriber fields:

Be sure to test your Zap! This will send a test contact to your MailChimp account:

You're now ready to turn on your Zap!
