MotoPress Hotel Booking & Mailchimp Integration: Key Features:
Leverage the power of Mailchimp to set Hotel Booking email marketing on autopilot, win back customers, optimize e-commerce solutions, follow up on purchases with any targeted emails and more.
Subscribe Guests to Mailchimp
Thanks to this add-on, you can set Mailchimp to automatically collect data associated with each booking and use it for sending automated targeted emails. It works for both paid reservations and those that are paid after arrival.
Once the extension is installed and synchronized with your Mailchimp account, all email addresses associated with previously confirmed bookings are added to your Mailchimp audiences so that you can reach out even to your past guests!
Instant or Opt-in Subscription
This Mailchimp for WP Hotel Booking plugin gives you decent options to manage the subscription options. Guests can be subscribed to your lists in the following ways:
- Upon a booking confirmation or any e-commerce action (automated).
- You can output customer consent checkboxes at checkout so that guests can optionally choose to subscribe to your newsletter.
- Use a double opt-in procedure that involves asking for consent at checkout and sending an extra confirmation email to your customers.
Create Dedicated Mailchimp Lists/Audiences
Mailchimp allows you to segment audiences by interests using special tags and other options – feel free to tailor emails to the realities of your business (discounts, events).
Send Targeted Emails via Mailchimp
Once there is a guest base specific to the Hotel Booking plugin, you can create targeted email campaigns just as you would normally do with other Mailchimp audiences. The first-class deliverability of Mailchimp makes it easy to send numerous emails on time.
Utilize Mailchimp for E-commerce Automation
Mailchimp is widely used by online stores so it’s packed with great ecommerce-focused tools.
For example, for Hotel Booking, you may set up abandoned cart emails to send follow-up notifications on unfinished reservations, customize extra follow-up emails and more.
Booking Receipts with Mailchimp
If you prefer to set up the vast majority of the automated email communication with clients via Mailchimp, feel free to opt for Hotel Booking receipts as well.
You can configure order notifications, i.e. transactional emails for all placed bookings. It doesn’t mean you should stop using Hotel Booking emails; this is just an alternative way to do things.
Visual Email Template Builder
Mailchimp is very handy at creating branded email templates. It’s easy to add media content, customize colors, alter typography and more.
What’s more, Mailchimp comes with dedicated settings for customizing emails individually for mobile layouts.
Detailed Ecommerce Reporting
If you are used to browsing Mailchimp, you might find it really insightful to have Hotel Booking-related stats at hand: the history of bookings, revenue, and results of email campaigns. The date-wise info will help you take better business decisions.
