MailChimp is an email marketing tool that can be used to send out beautiful emails for marketing campaigns. MailChimp allows you to import client details to a 'list' and create an email 'Campaign'.
SalonBridge allows you to link your account with MailChimp so that clients that visit your salon or spa can be added to your MailChimp lists automatically. This means that when you create email campaigns with MailChimp, all of your SalonBridge clients will automatically be there.
