Move Wordpress subscribers to Mailchimp?
« on: September 21, 2012, 02:47:01 PM »
Anybody know of a way to manage the emails that subscribed to my blog before I started using mailchimp? I'd like to put them on the same list as the rest of my subscribers, but I'm not able to manage them through wordpress.

Bribe them.

I don't think there is an easy way to export WP subs. That's why many of us don't like it.

Suck.

Reason I asked, is I was wanting to use this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/follow-button-for-jetpack/

And somehow transfer those who signup over to my mailchimp list.

Es no bueno.

I have a wordpress hosted blog and you can export the email addresses to a CSV file.

This can be imported directly into MailChimp.

Your email subscribers is under the stats pages.

Hi,

Here is how you do it:-

>Its under Dashbooard / Stats

Go down to Total, Followers and Shares

Find the section that says "Followers (includes publicize).

Click on Blog

Then on Email Followers

Then click on Download all as CSV<<



Thanks...Gary

That is awesome! Kiwimana, you have been a great help in several threads here!

Question, if I export those, and add them to my mailchimp list (which sends new feed items every morning) will my subscribers be getting two emails from me each day? I dont want to anger them! Any way to remove them from the wordpress email list, and just keep them on mailchimp?

Do you mean if they are subsribed to both lists?  Mailchimp and Wordpress?  Then yes it will.

I can't see anyway to removed subscribes users in wordpress, but that blog doesn't get updated so hence they get no emails.

If you mean importing into Mailchimp, then I think it will advise you of the duplicate.  But do a test before importing 5000+ :)

See ya...Gary
