We are really happy to present a new integration option that can give you all the tools you need to build your best e-mail campaigns automations ever. Now, every Ning network creator can discover numerous benefits of MailChimp integration on Ning 3.0 platform!

This is a powerful resource that allows you to set up e-mail campaigns for different groups of users and involve them into your network activity.

Once you integrate your MailChimp account with your Ning network, you can manage three automated lists that will contain sorted e-mails of your network members: new, active, and inactive. These lists will update regularly on an immediate and daily basis.

The instruction on how to integrate the MailChimp account to your Ning network and how to create your first automated campaign is available here.

We will continue to improve this useful tool, that is why we are planning to add some more automated lists. We would appreciate if you vote for the lists that you need the most.

We hope you will like our new feature. We do our best to make networking on Ning easier and more effective.

  • OK one question: I am already using Mailchimp to communicate with the members of my community.

    I have a list of 1300 users which I used to export and update on a weekly basis. Now Would it be possible to use the integration without loosing info of my existing list?
    On this list I have some more information which might be usefull of the members such as location, web address....  and also I have the data from the last campaigns I sent.

    If it is not possible to merge the automatic list created by the integration I should erase my existing list (otherwise I would have duplicate subscribers incrementing the cost of mailchimp)

    Thanks for the great work!

    • Hi Martin,

      If you integrate the MailChimp it will create the new lists and the old one won't be affected.

      Best regards,

      Ning Team.

  • Man, this is a great update!!!!

    I was thinking on migrating my community but now I see you are really improving in the right direction, Thumbs Up!

    • Thanks, Martin, we are glad to know you liked this update :-)

  • How About:

    1. Lists of suspended members.

    2. Lists of left members.

    3. Lists of members waiting to be approved.

    4. Lists of people who have uploaded content.

    5. Lists of people who have commented on content.

    9. Lists of people who wish to unsubscribe from all future communication.

    10. Lists of people who actually visited the site after sign up.

    11. Lists of people who have not signed in to the site after sign up.

    12. Lists of people who have reported issues using the report an issue or contact us form.

    • Hi Tim,

      I have some questions regarding the lists you have suggested (by the way thanks for the suggestions):

      Regarding #1 you have suggested, at some point the list #3 that we have as the default one fit your needs as it shows the members who have logged in last time on your network from 30 to 60 days ago unless you wish to see the list of members who are in suspended status. Please let me know if it so.

      Regarding #10, one of our default lists generate the list of people how have visited your network during last 30 days, would this fit your needs or you wish to have the list of people who have made the second sign in after registration (so basically the registration is the first sign in)?

      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Bets wishes,

      Ning Team.

  • What about Ning 2.0 users? Will we get the Mailchimp integration? 

    • Hi there!

      Regarding Ning 2.0, unfortunately, the 2.0 uses pretty old technologies and implementation of such functionality like MailChimp integration would take a fortune of dev time, most of which would be spent on research. Like the management has mentioned, probably it would be done later, however, it's not our top priority for the moment.

      Best wishes,

      Ning team.

  • I believe you already have my 'vote' from a prior post.

    • Hi Kos,

      Yes and no. I do remember you have chosen the number three on the test discussion, however it was only available for admins to vote there. So if you click the number three and submit your vote it would be highly appreciated. And as I have used the default functionality once you have voted you'll see the results for each category and won't be able to vote anymore.

      Best wishes,

      Ning Team.

      P.S. If the instruction is needed how you can do the same with your polls just let me know, I'll create the post here on creators, I'm just not sure it would be useful for everybody and that is only one thing which stops me from posting the tip :-)
