MailChimp

MailChimp is a fantastic e-mail solution for managing newsletters, bulletins and general advertising for church life. It is used by more than 10 million people in the UK and better still, it is completely free for users with up to 2000 subscribers, making it perfect for the majority of churches. MailChimp gives you the ability to bring your church communications up-to-date and provides a platform for reaching the outer church, as well as improving how we get in touch with our members. You can also take things one step further as we offer a branded MailChimp template service. Get in touch if you would like more information.

Direct Integration

As a standalone system, MailChimp is a great resource, however iKnow takes things one step further. Your iKnow database links directly into your MailChimp account, eliminating the need for you to manually update your list of contacts. This synchronises daily, ensuring that your list is always up-to-date and you won’t be leaving anyone out.

MailChimp draws in a range of information from the people module in iKnow. This gives you the ability to create segments within your MailChimp list and target specific demographics within the church. This is perfect if you are advertising a Men’s Fellowship event, or an event targeted at your young adults between the age of 18 and 30.
