Chronogolf Integrations: MailChimp - Golf Course Management

Posted by Alex Lavoie on March 29, 2017

We know golf course management means communicating with customers and telling them about course related events, tournaments, and promotions. So, how do you get your members to actually read the information you send them?


MailChimp makes sure you are sending emails to all contacts in your customer database and offers robust tools that ensure you are sending out exactly what your customers want to read. Want to optimize this aspect of golf course management? Here’s how:

1. Sync your email list with your customer database in real time

When you send out newsletters, announcements, and memos you want to make sure that every member at your club receives it. With Chronogolf and Mailchimp, you can automatically sync your database from your golf course management software with any email marketing list.   Your mailing list will never be out date and you’ll never have to manually enter your member's emails again. This way your golf pos, your tee-sheet and your marketing efforts will all be connected.


2. Know exactly who is reading and engaging with your content

It’s one thing to send an email to all your clients, but getting them to actually read it is the hard part. You want to know if the content you’re sending is interesting enough to encourage customers to engage with your golf course. MailChimp simplifies golf course management by offering robust tracking tools that allow you to monitor who is opening, reading, and clicking links in your emails. By using this you can know exactly who is reading your newsletter, who responds to certain promotions, and who is uninterested receiving email communications. It’s the best of both worlds. Engage those who want to be engaged without annoying potential clients.


3. Personal, customizable email templates

Emails that look good get more clicks. MailChimp has tons of professional templates that all look unique. Of course, you are not limited to only these. Customize them, add your own branding and even some golf course pictures to give your emails a personal flavour. You can even set up emails to be addressed personally to all customers on your mailing list. Using the deep customization features in MailChimp will transform your email marketing strategy and get more customers engaging with your golf course.
