Announcing the Heyo MailChimp Integration

February 4, 2014 | By | 4 Comments">4 Comments

Heyo is excited to announce a brand new integration with email marketing service provider MailChimp. This Heyo MailChimp integration features two new powerful tools: Premium Templates that send new leads straight to your MailChimp list and a customizable MailChimp widget. Click here to try it out.


New Heyo MailChimp Integration Carries Momentum into February

The year is off to a fast start here at Heyo! On the heels of releasing a new mobile publish experience in November and a completely redesigned Campaign Builder in December, last week we launched a brand new dashboard with built-in analytics. Phew! That’s a lot! But we never tire of improving our product here at Heyo and we’d like to keep our momentum going right into February – wait, is it really February already? Onward!

Without further ado, we are pleased to announce the release of our MailChimp integration, which went live on Friday. This integration features two powerful new tools: Premium Templates that send new leads straight to your MailChimp list and a new, customizable MailChimp widget.

Benefits of the New Heyo MailChimp Integration

Here’s a birds-eye view of what these valuable improvements will allow:

  • Seamlessly sync your premium templates to MailChimp in seconds.
  • Drag and drop a nifty email sign-up form into any campaign.
  • All contest entries or other signups will be automagically added to the MailChimp list of your choosing.

Why are we so excited about this MailChimp integration? Well, Heyo is an excellent platform for generating new leads, and syncing it to a great platform for communicating with those new prospects just makes sense. Integrating MailChimp with Heyo helps you save time and create more efficiency in your marketing,  getting exponentially more bang for your buck! And who doesn’t want that?

Let’s swoop in for a closer view of how we’ve actually incorporated MailChimp and how you’ll be using it below.

How to Set Up the Heyo MailChimp Integration on Your Premium Templates

MailChimp is integrated into all of our premium templates with the exception of the “Sales” template. Pick the premium template of your choice and there it is – the email sign-up form comes all “MailChimped” up and is just waiting for you to click on it.


Clicking on the email sign-up form will bring up the “Connect to MailChimp” option on the right-hand toolbar, which in turn, when clicked, will prompt you to provide your MailChimp login information. Enter your info and press the “Log In” button to synchronize your Heyo and MailChimp accounts.


Once you have synchronized your account you can choose which MailChimp list you’d like your leads to automatically export to. All done. See how easy that was? You can rest easy knowing your leads are in good hands.


How to Use the Heyo MailChimp Integration Widget

Want to go with something other than a premium template? We’ve got you covered – keep reading to get the lowdown on our MailChimp widget. This widget makes it easy for you to customize and drop your own email sign-up form right into any template – just drag and drop the MailChimp widget from the right-hand toolbar into your campaign canvas.


Customize the MailChimp widget however you see fit – size, color, and font are just some of the options to choose from. Once you’ve styled it to your liking click “Save Changes” at the bottom of the toolbar. All you have to do now is click on the sign-up form like you did before with the premium template and follow the same directions for logging in. Look at that! You’re all done with your customized email sign-up form and you didn’t even have to mess with any code.


Beyond the Heyo MailChimp integration

As always, we are constantly poking, prodding, and testing for ways to improve our product here at Heyo, so if you have any feedback we’d love to hear from you – just shoot us an email to and give us your thoughts.

We hope you’re as excited about this new integration as we are, and there’s even more on the way – so get ready!

Over the next month or two we’ll be releasing new templates, upgrading social widgets, and integrating other email marketing service providers. We hope you keep checking in on us as we work diligently through this fast-paced year – bring it on 2014!
