MailChimp is a well-known email marketing service provider having more than 3.5 million users. More than 4 billion emails are sent each month using this service! Many of our users rely on MailChimp for their email marketing, which is why we integrated the MailChimp API into DashThis.

 

The following standard KPIs are available from the Preset Widgets drop down menu:

The available metrics and dimensions are:

** There is no data history for the List Member Count, but we keep it so your List Member Count will evolve in time. **

Dimensions

  • • Campaign
  • • Mailing List
  • • Popular Links (available only with the Link Clicks metric)

Please note: MailChimp’s API only allows reporting softwares to automatically retrieve data in real time when requested. No historic data can be retrieved.

Therefore, in order to have the most accurate data collected for a particular campaign, we recommend you create a new widget as soon as you launch your campaign, and filter it by its campaign name. This will allow you to monitor a specific metric for that particular campaign.
