Posted By : Vishal Yadav | 28-Apr-2020
Mailchimp is an email marketing service and automation platform that helps you manage and talk to your clients and other interested parties. Mailchimp allows you to create a list of an audience where you can send Emails to all audiences or a particular user with the help of Campaigns. Campaigns allow you to use custom or prebuild Email templates from Mailchimp Dashboard so you don't have to manually create an Email format in your backend just call a campaign from your Node application.
Creating a Mailchimp Account and Using It In NodeJS Application
Step 1: Create a trial Mailchimp account. Now from dashboard go to API keys option under the Account tab. Get the API key for your account or create a new one.
Step 2: Now go the audience tab and create a new audience and from settings copy its unique ID later to be used in the configuration.
Step 3: Install Mailchimp dependency. Open your project directory and run the command mentioned below.
Step 4: Add Mailchimp credential in .env or configuration and create an object for Mailchimp.
