Mailchimp + BizDir guide


BizDir provides a unique way to obtain new subscribers by providing a subscribe form in each listing, these subscribers then build up in your subscribers list, you can also add these manually but mostly this list will fill automatically without the need for you to do anything.

This service works really well together with the BizDir Wifi Hotspots, which also automatically sends the data from the person using your wifi directly to your subscribers list in BizDir.es.

So up to this point, it’s pretty simple, you wait till you get enough people in your list and once you are happy with the amount we can go over to the next step which will be exporting the list and then importing this into Mailchimp, which is a limited free to use emailing service provider, you can also use alternatives, but we recommend Mailchimp as we know it best.

Step 1: Login to BizDir.es

Once logged in, navigate to your listing by clicking on “businesses” and then your listing.

Step 2: Navigate to the subscribers tab when editing your listing

Once in the listing click on the subscribers tab

Step 3: Download your list

Downloading your subscribers is as easy as clicking on the download icon on the right.

Step 4: Login or register on Mailchimp

Creating an account with mailchimp is free and easy, if you already have an account, simply login with your credentials.

Step 5: navigate to the lists tab

Creating an account with mailchimp is free and easy, if you already have an account, simply login with your credentials.

Step 6: Create the list

On the right hand side you will see the create list button, after the popup simply click create again. Here you will need to fill in your list name, from email and a few more things which are important.

Step 7: Click on “import subscribers”

Step 8: Select “CSV or tab-delimited text file”

Click next to continue

Step 9: Upload the CSV file you downloaded from BizDir

Click next to continue

Step 10: Match up the fields

This part is probably the most complicated of all, but it’s actually pretty simple, simply select from the dropdown what the column represents, in our case the first one would be “first name”, the second one would be “Last name”, and the third would be “Email address”
