Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
MailChimp today announced its integration with Butterfly Publisher, a social content management system created by Socialize Your Stuff. Butterfly Publisher users can now drive further social engagement and marketing via email.
“Email is often thought of as functionally and philosophically separate from other social marketing efforts,” said Jeffrey Mesnik, President. “Butterfly Publisher instead treats email as an entry point to a broader social conversation. This integrated approach allows users to take their high quality content and easily publish it across platforms.”
Organizations aggregate content directly within Butterfly Publisher. They curate relevant RSS and Twitter feeds, blogs, search engine results, and more. And once content has been found, it's just a few clicks to have content and promotions scheduled for sharing to social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin, and blogging services like Blogger and Wordpress. With MailChimp, email becomes effectively another social network.
Email can be used to keep subscribers informed, engage them directly with social deals and coupons, and direct users towards relevant conversations happening across the Internet.
Butterfly Publisher's "Social Digest" feature compiles social interactions from a designated time period, and makes it simple to send those tweets or Facebook posts out to subscribers. By sending these social roundups to an email list, customers are reminded of the conversations, and are directed back to those discussions for further engagement.
And Butterfly Publisher's social coupons and deals let organizations set simple terms. Then customers could do something like see the coupon, grab three friends in the next 2 days, sign up and immediately get 25% off their next purchase.
Butterfly Publisher also allows tracking of engagement and reach so customers can be segmented accordingly. Subscribers can be sorted by the number of Twitter followers and friends on Facebook, and more. It's easy to track who has engaged with previous messages and promotions, and in what manner. This leads to highly targeted email campaigns which go after only a company's most ardent fans with the largest social reach, or targeting those who haven't responded in high numbers and could use some special attention. By connecting in this manner, organizations can make people happy and spark growth.
To get started, Butterfly Publisher users just need to click a button, grant permission in MailChimp, and then pick which list they'd like to send to. MailChimp users can head here (http://www.socializeyourstuff.com/butterfly-publisher-for-mailchimp/) to receive a FREE 15-day trial.
