Course Overview and Benefits


Mailchimp is one of the most powerful marketing tools available to business owners - providing a robust but easy-to-use solution to help you cultivate and manage your email list and automate marketing campaigns. 

Even with everything that Mailchimp does for you, there may be times when you want to have access to your marketing data with FileMaker. By integrating FileMaker with Mailchimp API, you will be able to update your audience (subscriber list) or pull reporting data such as Open rates, Click rates, etc.  

The "Connect FileMaker to Mailchimp API" course will show you the step by step process of integrating a FileMaker solution with the several modules in Mailchimp so you can control data flow, accuracy, and productivity.

We will demonstrate the common pitfalls, undocumented requirements, and different options of scripting processes for efficiently communicating with Mailchimp.

The course includes a free unlocked FileMaker sample app to demonstrate each part of Create-Read-Update-Delete (CRUD) and give you a basic template to follow for tables, scripting and data flow. Enroll today to increase your API skills and be prepared for any client that wants your assistance integrating FileMaker and Mailchimp.

I have long wanted to help my clients by integrating their contacts or customers solutions with their MailChimp email processes. It used to be very difficult, involving PHP or some other roundabout method. When FileMaker introduced robust cURL options and JSON parsing in version 16, it became much easier. This course shows how to use those newer functions and how to develop scripted processes that make pulling and pushing data between MC and FM routine and easy. This was a great investment of study time for me.
