  1. How does it work?+

    Craftmonkey joins your existing MailChimp and Etsy accounts so that they can easily share information. Just login to your MailChimp account, enter your Etsy store name and voilà! The magic happens.

    Once you’ve connected via Craftmonkey, you can create newsletters using your Etsy shop content, which MailChimp will send out and track. You’ll be able to see a snapshot of how your list subscribers are responding right from your Craftmonkey account page. It makes sending out newsletters to your best customers, biggest fans and crafty community a breeze.

  2. Do I need to have a MailChimp account?+

    Yep. They’ve got an awesome plan that is free for up to 2,000 subscribers. If you haven’t already, check them out and see what all the eeping is about.

  3. Do I need to have a Etsy account?+

    Yes. The items in your shop is what you’ll be showcasing, and it’s from your Etsy store that we’ll grab your banner and let you pick your favorite images.

And we understand about being busy, that’s why we built Craftmonkey; to make things easier for you so you can keep on craftin’.

    For a longer answer (and lots of other good info), MailChimp has some amazing and free, downloadable guides on email marketing, including one specifically for online sellers. That one even has a kitty -- cute!
