An alternative email editor for MailChimp

Many users of the BEE editor are MailChimp customers. MailChimp is one of the most popular email marketing platform in the world, with over 14 million users. Some of them prefer to design their email templates using the BEE editor, and then send their email campaigns with MailChimp.

Exporting an email template (or message) to MailChimp

Whether you are designing a template to be used multiple times, or creating a message for a specific campaign, you can easily design the email with BEE, and then export it to MailChimp. There are two main ways to do so.

ZIP Import

Simply take the ZIP file that is created for you by BEE Free or BEE Pro, and import it into MailChimp. There is a feature in your MailChimp account that does exactly that.

See: Importing a ZIP file to create a campaign

Email Beamer

Alternatively, you can use a feature called Email Beamer to create the campaign without even logging into your MailChimp account. What you do is send the message to a special email address that you can obtain from your account settings. When you send a message to that address, the email is turned into a campaign. You can use the Quick Send feature in BEE to send the message.

Then, you can then either log into your account, edit it and send it, or - if it's ready to go - send it to your entire list without accessing MailChimp at all.

    Unfortunately that is not possible. The good thing is... it's really easy and fast to use the BEE editor, so you should be able to recreate whatever HTML message in BEE rather quickly.
