This trigger adds a contact to a Journey when they are subscribed to a Mailchimp list.
To use this trigger you need to connect to Mailchimp in Settings. Once connected, you could create a Journey such as this one:
As demonstrated above, we recommend connecting the trigger to the:
- Add to List action, so the contact is added to the related Autopilot list; and
- Send Notification action, to alert your team via email or Slack when you receive a Mailchimp new subscriber.
We also recommend using the Unsubscribed from Mailchimp trigger to remove contacts from your related lists in Autopilot when they unsubscribe in Mailchimp.
Will this trigger add existing list subscribers in Mailchimp?
No, it will only add contacts that subscribe to a Mailchimp list after the Journey is published. If you want to add existing subscribers to Autopilot, please export your list from Mailchimp and import it to Autopilot.
I imported contacts to a Mailchimp list, but they did not enter my Autopilot Journey via this trigger. Why not?
At this time Mailchimp's webhooks, upon which this feature relies, are not triggered by an import.
