Export People to MailChimp
People can be exported from the people or lead lists using the "Export to MailChimp" link on the lower left corner. Select the people or leads you want to add to MailChimp, choose the list, and decide whether you want to send a welcome email.
MailChimp will prevent duplicate email addresses from being added to your list. If a customer unsubscribes, MailChimp also prevents you from accidentally re-adding their email address back onto a mailing list. If a user unsubscribed on accident and wants to be re-added, check out this MailChimp support article for information on re-adding them to a list.
- Send welcome will trigger the sending of the Final Welcome Email. See this MailChimp knowledge base article.
- Custom fields with the same name in Nutshell and MailChimp will be automatically mapped.
Add leads to MailChimp lists as part of your sales process
Automatically send leads to MailChimp lists and remove them from campaigns at the right time. Email addresses from the first company and all people on the lead will be added to the specified MailChimp list.

Yes! You can now export your Nutshell Contacts to MailChimp segments by following these easy steps:

- For example: If job title = CEO, add to segment 'Executive team, if job title = Marketer, add to segment 'Marketing'.)
