Integration with Mailchimp

Integrate with Mailchimp so that autoresponders can be started based on different criteria. Track leads and lead sources, and income from those individual lead sources.

Re: Integration with Mailchimp

Hi thegmann,

We've been asked about integration with newsletter vendors before (like Mailchimp). It's a great idea, but we haven't added it to the dev roadmap yet because there are a number of things that would have to be built first. Our email/CRM overhaul needs to happen so that "contacts" are more entity independent from bookings, quotes and inquiries.

That being said, we understand how very important integration is in the Web 2.0 world. We were one of the first software packages to integrate with HomeAwayConnect calendar, for instance, and we're the only one I know of that updates it in near real time. Same with FlipKey.

As far as tracking leads and sources, that is very near and dear to our hearts. At the moment, we haven't released our reporting features yet, but that's something that's very important. We've consumed and tracked thousands of inquiries since we released our Inquiry section and we're really itching to show what listing sites do the best and which book well.

If you want to integrate with a system that is probably easy to integrate with, and would take care of all CRM and email marketing, as well as look great, I recommend that you take a look at guestfolio. I'm considering an email-parsing integration between ownerreservation and guestfolio, though I wish it was more direct! It allows automated email marketing, ROI reporting, and takes care of e-concierge services as well as transactional emails.

Good morning,

Thanks for the reference to guestfolio. I've never heard of them before. If they have an API, that's definitely a possibility for future integration.
