Send new customers to a Mailchimp List

Reaching out to your customer base is a crucial part of running a successful rental operation.  Encouraging repeat-business is always easier than getting entirely new customers.  



Many of our clients manage their own campaigns from email marketing applications like MailChimp sending out discount vouchers/codes to encourage repeat and advance bookings.



You will now be able to automatically push a feed of your new clients to Mailchimp.  You will setup a connection with your MailChimp account within your BRM / RSM, and then you will specify the name of your MailChimp list where you want to send new customers to.
