The time it takes to sync your data depends on the number of MailChimp users you have and for the first sync it may take up to 9 minutes.
While it's loading you can just head back to Leadfeeder and continue whatever you were doing.
New auto-added feed shows you all MailChimp traffic
After you’ve connected to MailChimp a new feed will automatically appear in Leadfeeder called Mailchimp visitors. All you have to do is open this feed to see all visits to your website via MailChimp.
Here’s how the home screen of Leadfeeder will look with the new feed. We strongly recommend clicking Edit notifications and subscribing to daily or weekly email alerts so you get automatically notified whenever a person visits your website via one of your email marketing campaigns.
When you open your MailChimp feed (or another feed with MailChimp traffic) you will be able to see precisely who has done what – and when – on your website.
In the above view you can see a list of leads (companies) and colourful initials representing people who've clicked through to your website from a MailChimp campaign.
By hovering your mouse over the letters you can see the name and email address of a person who clicked through to your website via one of your email campaigns in MailChimp.
To see what that person did just click on the lead and the visit details show on the right side.
For each person we see the email address and for many we see both name and email address.
A new sales and marketing tool stack
With this integration your business can create a seamlessly integrated sales and marketing tool stack that includes email marketing from MailChimp, lead generation from Leadfeeder and CRM from Pipedrive, an attractive package for any startup.
